Ecological land rent is the excess profit produced by resource scarcity. This paper, by calculating the respective ecological land rents of all the provinces in China for the years 2002 and 2007, and with the assistance of the software programs ArcGIS and GeoDA, analyzes the spatial differentiation characteristics of ecological land rent; then, the influencing factors of ecological land rent differentiation among the provinces are examined using the methods of traditional regression and spatial correlation analysis. It is shown that population distribution, economic level and industrial structure were all important influencing factors. Population density, urbanization level, economic density were all shown to be positively related to total ecological land rent. However, there was also a negative correlation between ecological land rent and agricultural output percentage
