Abstract: Urban culture is a core component of a city’s humanistic characteristics and urban charm. An in-depth exploration of it will help deepen the cultural cognition of the city and enhance the joint force of the city’s cultural development. Under the background of emphasizing the deep integration of culture and technology, this research proposes a digital visualization system for the laws and connotations of Beijing's urban culture. For this purpose, data on Hutongs, time-honored brands, and literary landmarks were collected from three dimensions of residential areas, commercial areas, and urban landmarks. The concept of urban-culture-value was proposed, and corresponding indicators and an evaluation system were constructed. Besides, a visualization system was provided to show the distribution and relationship of urban culture in geographic space. Lastly, through case analysis, a model of Beijing Urban Cultural Belt was established, and the relationship between urban culture and political center was explored. Furthermore, three types of urban culture distribution models, centralized, conventional, and marginal, were proposed.
