Taking the Henan-Shaanxi-Hubei junction area as the research object, this paper measured the comprehensive development level of the counties in the Henan-Shaanxi-Hubei junction area from 2000 to 2017, and analyzed its spatial differentiation characteristics, evolutionary trends and obstacles. The results show that: 1) From 2000 to 2017, the comprehensive development level of the counties in the ??Henan-Shaanxi-Hubei junction area gradually improved, with an average annual growth rate of 6.08%, and the spatial difference between the county-level development gradually increased; 2) The comprehensive development level of counties showed a positive spatial correlation. The significant hotspot areas migrated from the southeast to the southwest and then to the southeast. The significant coldspot areas were mainly distributed in Ankang and Shangluo before 2005, and then mainly concentrated in Nanyang. 3) The humanistic and economic factors are at moderate to high barrier levels, while resources and environmental factors are at extremely low and low barrier levels; with the passage of time, the spatial resistance differentiation of obstacle factors in different counties became more significant. 4) The spatial resistance patterns of county development in the Henan-Shaanxi-Hubei junction area can be divided into 3 types, among which the low economic development level-human resource element restriction type is the main spatial resistance pattern, and on the basis of analyzing the characteristics of different spatial resistance patterns, a regional development strategy is proposed.

Key words: the junction area in Henan-Shaanxi-Hubei, human-land system, obstacle factor, spatial resistance pattern, rural revitalization
