The concept of sustainability, an idea which can be defined as “the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”, centres the balance of human activities and the corresponding impact to the natural environment. Over recent decades, rapid global urbanization together with increasing urban population has maintained pressure on the limited natural and social resources. As such, a more sustainable way is required to conduct urban design, management and evaluation. In this context, there are many aspects related to the environmental, economical and social benefits for the policymakers of urban planing to consider: urban land use, spatial sturcture, pollution, transport accessibility, livability of human settlements, etc. Geographical information system (GIS) has proven to be an effective tool in analyzing spatial issues. As spatial science develops, GIS in combination with remote sensing, virtual environment technology, artificial intelligence, statistics, econometrics and other advanced technologies could better support sustainable development in urban areas.
The purpose of this publication is to discuss the application of GIS in urban sustainability and provide better insights into urban planning, management or evaluation. This Special Issue invites researchers to publish papers on multi-demensional analysis related to urban areas.
