Regional scaled management is a process in which regional production elements accumulate spatially to use interior and outside resources effectively, and it is also a method and a pattern through which regional society and economy get better and better with the environment. Evaluation of regional scaled management for certain regions can help the regional decision maker with more efficient and appropriate planning for regional social and economic development. Based on the evaluation index metric for regional scaled management following the index for regional sustainable development evaluation, the paper focuses on the establishment of spatial models for the regional population scaled management, regional cultivated land scaled management and regional economy scaled management, taking Shandong province of China as an example region. Following the regional scaled management evaluation models developed, the regional population scaled management, regional cultivated land scaled management, regional economy scaled management and a comprehensive regional scaled management maps of Shandong province in 1995 and 2000 are calculated.

Key words: GIS, regional scaled management, Shandong province
