Identifying and protecting traffic hub is vital to keep the stability and reliability of urban road traffic network. In this paper, a comprehensive evaluation method of node importance in urban road traffic network was introduced based on identification theory of key nodes in complex network. Firstly, taking into account the impact of road network topology and traffic flow characteristics on node’s capacity, node importance in topological network and betweenness, urban road grade and node traffic flow are selected as the evaluating indexes of node importance, and AHP is used to determine the weight of each index. Secondly, the associated value of the indexes are calculated and obtained based on SuperMap Deskpro and practical investigation, and then, combined with TOPSIS, a sequence of node importance is determined. Finally, we applied the method to part district of Hohhot road traffic network, it can be seen that the key nodes obtained with the method stay in the important position in the the traffic network and have greater traffic flow, the results showed it is effective and practical feasible.
