Abstract:From the perspective of China’s overall territory view, the fundamental reason for the distribution of frontier-inland in China lies in the uneven and asymmetric distribution of population and its economic, social and cultural activities caused by differences in natural and geographical conditions. The restriction of special natural and geographical environment factors on people’s practical activities constitutes the essential attribute of the frontiers. Due to the stability of natural geographical environment factors, the distribution pattern of frontier-inland in China’s overall territory has been relatively stable for a long time. Current frontier landscapes cannot be matched with the historical period, which reflects the dialectical relationship between the limitations of the natural geographical environment and the development based on scientific and technological progress.
