In China, there are standard per capita indicators for the land used for urban and rural settlements. Tender auction has been the major access to the acquirement of operating sites. Land used for transport facilities and water conservancy facilities is mainly influenced by important governmental and regional policies. However, there are neither corresponding standards for industrial land nor adequate mark transparency for its procurement. Therefore, how to improve the efficiency of industrial land use is of prime importance for land use planning and governance. We found that most of the existing research papers introduce a weighted indicator to evaluate land intensive use, without the guidance of economic principles. The exiting method cannot be well applied for the compilation of land use planning and the process of management and implementation. We propose a means named total factor productivity, simple and practical, to evaluate the economic efficiency of industrial land use and compare the effects of intensive use in different cities of Fujian province in China. Also, a variant TPF method is feasible in the absence of labor incomes ratio. It is unable to arrange the order of factor use efficiency, but it could indicate the input structures of capital and labor and regional differences of their use efficiencies. Furthermore, the case study shows that the longer distance from Xiamen and Fuzhou, the lower inputs and outputs the other cities of Fujian province have. It seems that Xiamen and Fuzhou analogize the city in Thunen's isolate country while other cities like the suburbs in the book. Therefore it is necessary to consider the impacts of location on land intensive use, and finding the reference atlas is the crux.
