This paper uses OLS model, Spatial Panel Lagged model and Spatial Panel Error model to quantitatively analyze the influencing mechanisms of 5 class factors and 17 variables supported by GIS (Geographic Information System) and MATLAB. A comprehensive data set was developed including physical geography and socio-economic information of 2286 counties. The results show that Spatial Panel Data models are slightly superior to OLS model in terms of significance and confidence level. Regression results of these models indicate that industrialization, urbanization, economic development level, location, transportation and policy have significant impact on land intensive use (LIU) of counties. The variables of physical geography are less significant than socio-economic variables. An ignored variable of historical factor, however, became the best significant factor
