Abstract: A land suitability assessment and land use control decision making support system used as a spatial analysis tool to Fuqing City was developed based on GIS which was an integration of comprehensive index model with parcel compactness model through creating geospatial database for land use distribution and land suitabi lity controlling factors. After multifactor spatial analysis on land suitability has been operated and land use suitabilities under the conditions of objective land uses of interest (especially for pan agricultural landuse such as cultivated land,forestry,orchard) have been simulated,the unique objective land use planning was proposed associated with current land use pattern in Fuqing;and the optimal multi objective land use planning scenario was presented through comprehensive comparison analysis on land use multi utilities. It was concluded that there is no more potential land in Fuqing for arable land,but about 340,100 and 50,000 acres are left for new forest and new orchard which can provide numerical parameters for creation of land use transformation and overall planning.

Key words: land suitability assessment, land use transformation planning, Geographical Information System, Comprehensive Index Model, Parcel Compactness Model
