Carrying out research on evaluation techniques of regional land resources carrying capacity is of great significance for the smooth implementation of national strategic objectives. From the perspective of land development and utilization, this article comprehensively considers the factors that have marked impact on land development and construction. First it estimates the scale and distribution of construction land by distributed algorithm, and then it determines the reasonable intensity of land exploitation and its spatial distribution. Finally, it evaluates the regional carrying status through the analysis of the present development state and reasonable development state. In a case study of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the results show that the relationship between the present situation of development and the reasonable development state can effectively reflect the state of land development and utilization with regard to the carrying capacity, Using construction development activities as the evaluation focus has important policy implications because it enables refined and differentiated spatial structure optimization regulation policy making.

Key words: carrying capacity, land resources, land development and utilization, evaluation technique, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region
