Abstract: With the further research from LUCC to GLP, the initiation of the land regulation of hollow villages, and the successive creation of high resolution remote sensing images, it is practically demanded to carry out the land use investigation and estimation study on village scale. As the village is the most basic administrative unit, village-scale land use can be considered the most basic unit of regional land use. Current land use is divided into six categories: cultivated land, forest land, grassland, water body, construction land and unutilized land, which is the method commonly used in existing research into land use in China. A village, especially the homestead, leisure areas, and ponds inside a village, is considered as one type of land use rural residential land. As a result, the land use structure of a village is undoubtedly concealed and attains no attention. This caused China's severe shortage of information related to village-scale land use in a long period, which has also become a major blind zone in China's land use management and research. With the implementation of "hollow village" consolidation policy in China and the presence of high-resolution remote sensing data, especially as the strategy of new countryside construction goes further, it is imperative to fill in gaps in research of village-scale land use. Constructing the land use condition classification system on village scale should be the premise supporting the land use investigation and estimation. Referring to the Land Use Condition Classification for National Standard of the People's Republic of China (GB/T21010-2007), and based on 0.25 m high resolution remote sensing images, this paper built the land use condition classification system on village scale, which was applied in Paizi Village of Yucheng City, Shandong Province. The land use classification system based on 0.25 m high resolution remote sensing images constructed by this paper not only shows land use structure and its characteristics in Paizi Village, Yucheng City, but also explains the potentiality of land consolidation in Paizi Village, which obtained a good practical application result. This paper would provide beneficial experience and reference to land resources investigation and regulation on village scale.
