AHP, Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation, Multi-Objective Planning Modeling.


 In the current context of increasing global light pollution, we urgently need an effective control system. In this study, we constructed an extensive and objective evaluation model through the AHP method to classify light pollution into standard and index layers, and successfully established an evaluation model that accurately predicts the level of light pollution. Through practical tests, we found that light pollution is higher in cities, followed by suburbs, and lower in rural areas and protected areas. Based on the established evaluation model, we propose three most effective intervention strategies: regulating the use of LED billboards, reducing the use of reflective building materials, and controlling nighttime construction lighting. In response to the possible negative impacts, we propose specific solutions and verify the effectiveness of the intervention programs through a multi-objective planning model, achieving significant results in reducing light pollution levels. This study provides a useful reference and lesson for light pollution management.
