Based on the fractal theory, this paper measured and analyzed the change of spatial structure and spatial form of rural residential lands in Pinggu District of Beijing from 2004 to 2012, and put forward countermeasures for optimizing the spatial structure and increasing the stability of its spatial from. Results showed that spatial structure and form of rural residential lands in Pinggu District took on fractal characteristics. On regional scale, the aggregation dimension and correlation dimension decreases as the time went on, and the form dimension continues to increase. And the spatial structure of rural settlement in Pinggu District conforms to the agglomeration development theory, while the spatial form became increasingly complex. So we need to strengthen the construction of transportation infrastructure, enhance the correlation degree of each element of the rural residential land system, so as to promote the spatial structure optimization. Also, the rural land use should be planned scientifically to reduce the randomness of spatial development of land use and realize the sustainable development of rural residential land in Pinggu District. This study can provide an academic basis for the layout adjustment and consolidation of rural residential land in practice.
