The upper reaches of Tarim River belong to typical ecological fragile zone and environmental critical zone. Many effects are caused by the utilization of land and water resources. Along with further development and utilization, great changes of land use pattern have been taken place. Based on the research on oasis-desert ecosystem, with the frontier theory of landscape ecology, changes of land use /Land Cover of Akesu oasis from 1990 to 2002 are analyzed through the technological train of 3S and statistics. Its influencing factors are also identified based on GIS.The research shows that the changes of pattern are notable and human impact is continuously enhanced.
