Landscape pattern in mining area is both the result of long-term action of multi driving forces and the base of regional coordination and development. This paper takes Liyuan Town, where Jinggezhuang locates, in Tangshan as an example and analyzes land use changes in the year 1997 and 2003 using GIS. The results showed that in mining area in urban-rural fringe of plain area, the number and the fragmentation of the patches increased and the patch density as the whole was in a rising trend. And the patch number of each type of landscape distributed unevenly. The landscape pattern characteristics and evolvement in Liyuan Town indicates that under the double functions of mining development and urbanization, it is necessary adequately to obey the evolvement regularity of special landscape in region to promote the evolvement of landscape destruction, restoration, reconstruction and function, in order to realize the regional coordination development.
