Analysis on land criteria price's time- space pattern of inner cities is helpful for macroscopic control over land market and optimized configuration of land resource. Taking Hohhot as a study area, the research analyzes time- space character of residential land price 2001~2007 based on land price investigation and dynamic monitoring. The result shows that: the hierarchy and land criteria prices of main zones in the city reduces from inner to outer orderly. But the hierarchy boundary is influenced by the city road directly; they are of distinct negative relation, and the price difference between high- low levels is getting large with the development of city; and during the research period, the change of land criteria price takes on staggered character with time and, spatially, land criteria price in the city center and urban fringe is increasing quickly, but little slowly in hinterland and most slowly in near suburb.the formation of the scale ineconomic land, the loss of land - use efficiency, decrease in productivity of the adjacent land, and violation of the farmers'neighboring rights. Land is the base for the farmers to survive, multiply and develop from generation to generation. At the same time, land is the basic livelihood guarantee of farmers and the basic sources of livelihood. The farmers losing lands means losing the basis of survival and development and losing their rights to survival and development. Attributes of the land resources indicate that land acquisition must involve the change of land use and the ecological environment factors and guarantee the farmers’ environmental rights. Therefore, we must improve the land acquisition system and establish an effective means of market operation in order to achieve social justice and harmony through the correct assessment of ecological value of agricultural lands to compensate for the loss of landless farmers fairly and reasonably.

Key words: Hohhot, land criteria price, land price index, time- space pattern
