Urban Transportation and Land Use System (UTLU system) is open, complex and nonequilibrium. Since the study on evolution mechanism of UTLU system is limited, this paper takes Beijing as example, both chaos theory and fractal theory are employed to reveal the evolution prospect and structural complexity respectively. Firstly, small-data method is used to analyze the time series of synergy degree of UTLU system, and the largest Lyapunov exponent is calculated which is used for judging the chaos phenomenon of UTLU system. Then the feature of chaos system is utilized to reveal the evolution prospect in depth. Secondly, select proper scale objects from transportation system and land use system respectively, and then the Rank-Size rule is adopt to evaluate the evolution of UTLU system.
