Abstract
Most of the traditional settlement studies are based on text description of the social or cultural perspectives or drawing records of the spatial form of the settlements. It may be difficult to further compare the social and cultural space of a number of settlements, or to discuss the spatial structure of different settlements. This study proposes a topological analysis method of mathematical theory to understand the inherent spatial logic of settlements in Taiwan. Qualitative research methods such as field investigation are adopted to obtain the settlement life information and define the space for abstraction. Starting from the geometric concepts in the topological space, this stud explores the geometric spatial relationships and calculates the values of various points to learn the characteristics of each space for the interpretation of the space from the concept of saturation and depth. Such a research method describes the social and cultural significance of different spaces from another angle, and compares the differences in the settlement spatial structure by values.
