Abstract

This article uses the ht-index to quantify the fractal or scaling structure of geographic features. It chooses nightlight imagery and terrain heights for the first two case studies and uses degree of street connectivity for the third case study to illustrate how the computed ht-indexes capture the complexity of different geographic features. It further discusses how ht-index is complementary to fractal dimension and elaborate on a dynamic view behind ht-index that enables better understanding of geographic forms and processes
