Short summary
Geographical information system techniques and a geographical-detector model are used to explore the relationship between the evolution of karst rocky desertification (KRD) and driving data. Our results detect non-linearly enhanced impacts significantly aggravating the KRD. This implies that there is no significant difference between natural and anthropogenic factors influencing KRD improvement, and also that natural factors have a more important impact on KRD deterioration.
