Abstract: MFOZ (Major Function Oriented Zoning) planning is a high precision strategic guideline for spatial development planning and land use management for a full nationwide implementation for the first time since 1949, which not only sets higher standards for the methodology, techniques and tools of planning, but also demands higher qualities of data sources for the planning in county-level administrative regions or in the spatial scales of even higher precision. By examining the 9 indicators for the province-level MFOZ planning, the characteristics of data requirements of MFOZ planning are analyzed, and four major issues in the data support aspect are discussed: (1) data lack precision, (2) data lack economic meanings, (3) data standards are not uniform, (4) original data for some indicators are missing. Based on the analysis of the performance review of MFOZ planning and future goals of spatial development and land use management, the authors propose the design principles of the indicators for supervision and evaluation of MFOZ planning, and put forward an indicator system from four aspects such as agglomeration effects, social development, food and resource supply, and ecology and environment protection. By doing so, the authors intend to provide a reference for scientific assessment of the nationwide land use management and spatial and functional development, and for establishment of the data system for MFOZ planning for the 12th five-year plan and the future years.
