Under the background of rapid industrialization and urbanization, the phenomenon of hollowed villages is aggravating increasingly in China. So it is imperative to carry out rural residential land consolidation, especially in hollowed villages. Assessing the potential of land consolidation is an important part of rural residential land consolidation. This paper reviews related researches about the methods assessing the potential of rural residential land consolidation in order to provide technical references for the practice of hollowed villages consolidation. Firstly, three basic potential evaluation methods were elaborated, including the methods based on per capita construction land standard, per household construction land standard, and vacancy rate of rural residential land. Then, this paper introduces some new methods for potential evaluation in detail, i.e., the comprehensive potential measurement of multi-factors, and remote-sensing interpretation. Finally, this paper proposes that in the future more attentions should be paid to: 1) to emphasize the application of remote-sensing technology; 2) to establish the evaluation index system that reflect the integrated regional differentiation; and 3) to strengthen the dynamic prediction of potential evaluation index based on future rural spatial restructuring and the construction pattern of towns and villages.
