Based on multi-temporal land use data and remote sensing data, through GIS technology and the land use dynamic degree, and spatial overlay analysis model, this paper analyses Dalian Jinshitan National Tourist Resorts land use spatial pattern evolution and driving mechanism from 1992 to 2009. Research shows that: 1) land use change models show a significant reduction in arable land and construction land but transportation land increased rapidly: 1992- 2009 Jinshitan witnessed the fastest reduction of arable land in single type of land use dynamic degree, the annual rate of change was 4.66%; the fastest increase was construction land, with an annual rate of change being 21.32%; most of the arable land were transferred into construction land, during 1992-2009 891.35 hm2 of arable land were turned to construction area, accounting for 54.76% of the total cultivated land area; tourism land area increased by 425.35 hm2, representing an increase of construction land area of 27.69%. 2) Construction land space expanded along the traffic lines and the coastline, presenting the tourist attractions of central tendency, mostly in the south of Longshan, Manjiatan and Chenjiacun, and from this region to the surrounding area constantly. 3) Compared with non-tourist towns, Jinshitan gradually changed from the original single land use type of the compound to the tourism-led land transformation. Driven by the three main bodies of“government”,“enterprise”, and“residents”, Jinshitan National Tourist Holiday Resort experienced a land use spatial evolution pattern of taking“natural resources protection”–“tourism development”as the lead and–“protection as a precondition for moderate development”

Key words: land use changes, tourism urbanization, Dalian Jinshitan National Tourist Holiday Resort
