Land use spatial pattern reflects both the impact of human activities on the process of ecological system and the human activities response to natural condition. Geomorphology condition, which has a close relationship with land use spatial pattern, is a direct and key factor influencing human to use land at the local level. This paper analyses two cases of land use spatial patterns in Hubei province China, Zigui County and Jiayu County, which are exemplary for two different geomorphology conditions, respectively the mountain area and plain model. The land use spatial pattern is analyzed
using geographical information system (ArcGIS) and landscape-pattern analysis software (FRAGSTATS 3.3). The results indicate that different land use type has different landscape characteristics. Simultaneity, the same land use type forms different landscape pattern in the dissimilar geomorphology region. Terrain feature, which restrains the possible land use type, is the base for people to decide how to use the land. It is the most direct factor influencing people behavior for land using. Cultivated land is the substratum of landscape class in Plain, while in Mountain area is forestland. Patches of different landscape classes are inlaid the substratum. Comparing with mountain area, there are fewer land use types
and inconspicuous substratum of landscape class in plain because of human intensive disturbance. Meanwhile patches in plain possess higher geometrical similarity and lower landscape fragment than in mountain area.
