Abstract: Based on related researches in the past, this paper mainly studies the number of Jiangxi’s celebrities,the characteristics of their geographical distribution and its causes by the research methods of GIS graphics technology, mathematical statistics and historical documents. The results show that: since Qing and Han dynasties, the geographical distribution of Jiangxi’s celebrities has been imbalanced. The majority of celebrities’ lived in the middle and northeast of Jiangxi Province while only a few in the North and South. Therefore, it can be seen that the quantity of celebrities varied greatly in different periods.As time went by, the type of celebrities gradually became rich. The focus of the distribution of celebrities transferred from the North to the Middle, then to the South. The imbalanced regional distribution and development of Jiangxi’s celebrities resulted from the combined effects of a series of factors such as natural environment, economic conditions, traffic conditions, education level, population migration and so on.
