Typical Chinese villages is the core of the interaction of human-land relationship in rural areas and the spatial carrier of rural revitalization. Systematic study of the spatial distribution of typical villages and their influencing factors is important for the systematic evaluation, identification, rational planning and layout of typical villages in the process of rural revitalization strategy implementation. Taking traditional villages, ethnic villages, key rural tourism villages and forest villages as research objects, this paper comprehensively analyzes the spatial distribution characteristics and influencing factors of typical villages by using ArcGIS spatial analysis and geographic detectors. The results show that: 1) The typical Chinese villages is distributed in a spatial pattern of ''dense in the southeast and sparse in the northwest'', bounded by the Hu Line. 2) The spatial distribution of typical Chinese villages has a significant agglomeration, among which the high-density areas of traditional villages are distributed in Southeastern Guizhou-Western Hunan-South Anhui, Southwest Zhejiang-North Fujian and Southeastern Shanxi, and the core area is in the shape of ''品''. The high-density area of ethnic villages is located at the intersection of Hunan, Guangxi and Guizhou, and gradually decreases from southwest to northwest and coastal areas. The key rural tourism villages radiate westward to Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan and Yunnan with Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and Shanghai-Jiangsu-Zhejiang as the double core. Forest villages radiate from Beijing and the border of Zhejiang and Anhui to the surrounding areas. 3) The main factors affecting the spatial distribution of typical villages include topography, hydrology, transportation, economic development level, population and ecological environment, etc. The study on spatial distribution characteristics and influencing factors of typical Chinese villages can provide suggestions and references for the development protection and further development.

Key words: typical villages, agglomeration, geo-detector
