Along with the advancement of new countryside construction and the launch of coordinating urban-rural strategy, the government and academic circles have paid more attention to the hollowed village problem. As a result, the hollowed village regulation has been turning from a pure academic question to a major action currently taken to expand domestic demand, to push forward the new countryside construction and to realize urban-rural coordination. However, investigation and assessment of hollowed village land consolidation potential is the premise and crux of launching the mission of hollowed village regulation. This paper took 13 typical villages including Xuji of Yucheng City in Shandong Province as examples, and synthetically integrated the advantages and technique methods of multiple disciplines such as geography, 3S technology, land science, and information science, etc. Based on this, it built the technique and method system of hollowed village land consolidation potential investigation and assessment. During the process, we studied from different angles, such as choosing typical hollowed villages, making up current land use classification system on the village scale, designing the schedule and questionnaire for household surveys, as well as the usage and interpretation of high resolution remote sensing images, the classification of hollowed village regulation potential and the corresponding assessment models, and so on. Through the case study of Yucheng City, Shandong Province, the technique and method system built in this paper has proved to be inventive, well-founded, and easy to put into practice. Also, the result of hollowed village potential investigation and assessment was proved to be consistent with the real situation in Yucheng City and good results were gained, which could help to make use of the land consolidation potential of hollowed villages in China.
