By using the coupled coordination model, geographically weighted regression model and trend analysis method, the article measured the coupling coordination degree between innovation of industrial cluster and the county urbanization, analyzed its characteristics in space and driving force. The conclusions are arrived as follows: in 2006-2012, the innovation of industrial cluster, county urbanization, coupling and coordination all rose with a certain degree, meanwhile, the whole coordination degree presented a spatial trend about "northeast high, southwest low"; the coordination degree took on the trend of spatial agglomeration continuously, and then the strength of the agglomeration changed with the inverted "V" type, which formed a significant hot spots focusing on the region of Hangzhou Bay, and the other significant cold spot was the southwest of Zhejiang Province; there were obvious regional differences in the driving force for the coordinated development of innovation of industrial cluster and county urbanization in different area, and its strength of driving force was decreasing according to the base of economic, opening to the outside world, power of market, informatization, behavior of government and industrialization.

Key words: innovation of industrial cluster, county urbanization, coupled coordination
