【Abstract】The evolution of the industrial land has played an important role in the process of the development of urban agglomeration of China, and has significant effects on the development direction, spatial structure and environment. This paper took the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan Urban Agglomeration as the example, and used the spatial analysis to research the evolution of industrial land of urban agglomeration. The figures of distribution of various industrial land were established to express the evolution situation of all kinds of industrial land. The grid system composed by 16,524 hexagonal grid cells was built to conduct the spatial analysis on the evolution of industrial land. The four dimensional hill diagram was built to intuitively express the evolution of industrial land in a macro perspective. The dynamic curves of the expansion of industrial parks and the evolution of various industrial land were generated to describe the effect degree of all industrial parks and all kinds of industrial formats on the evolution of industrial land in urban agglomeration. Then, the characteristics of the evolution of industrial land of Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan Urban Agglomeration were summarized. Firstly, it experienced a process of fragmented development-migration and aggregation-continuous siege. Secondly, the number of industrial parks in the urban area was too large, so the homogeneity competition existed. Thirdly, the main form of industrial land expansion was developing the new area, and the transformation and promotion on the existing industrial land were not enough.
