Amenity resources are relevant to rural economic development, population migration, income distribution, and tourism development. For this reason, many government officials have adopted these amenities as regional planning and development strategies. Because government officials use spatial characteristics when they establish rural policies, this study analyzes the spatial distribution of amenity resources using GIS (geographic information systems) and analyzes their spatial autocorrelation using related tools. The study chooses seventeen amenities based on the official amenity database and finds that most cultural amenities are not clustered spatially and that, according to the global spatial autocorrelation index (Moran's I), they have few positive correlations. Finally, an analysis of LISA (local indicator of spatial association) shows some “hot spots” in the spatial distribution of the cultural amenities, but additional research is needed to determine whether these amenities affect regional economies.
