Abstract

The paper presents the analysis of aims, theories and practices in city planning and in the use of web-based technologies under the light of the three key dimensions constituting the pillars of Urban Informatics: people, city and technology. The analysis had been developed focusing first on the misalignments between current web-based technologies and city planning, then moving to the identification of their convergences. Building on this analysis, the paper outlines three future directions to rethink the integration of digital technologies in the planning practice, by enhancing also the contribution that city planning theories and practices can offer to the design of future web-based technologies working as planning support systems to manage the production and use of city data, the orchestration of local activities, and the integration of global plans with distributed urban initiatives.
