Abstract: CLUE-S model is a spatial simulation model used in small-scale and high-resolution land use change simulation, in which raster data are directly expressed by the land use type. The area of the Ha-Da-Qi industrial corridor is 34510.44 km2, and is a large-scale study area. This paper simulates land use change in seven cities and counties of the Ha-Da-Qi industrial corridor based on Landsat TM remote sensing data of 1990, 2000 and 2005, splicing land use change simulation maps of each city and county. The study realizes the large-scale land use change simulation by using CLUE-S model. The research results can be drawn as follows. The major trend of land use change in the Ha-Da-Qi industrial corridor up to 2015 is that cultivated land will increase slightly by about 2.62%. Construction land will significantly increase by about 24.37%, and forest, grassland and water area will decrease by about 11.17%, 6.44% and 18.04% respectively. Unused land will decrease by about 5.58%.
