This chapter illustrates how to integrate both the building (Chapters 3–4 Chapter 3 Chapter 4) and mobility (Chapters 5–6 Chapter 5 Chapter 6) sectors for simulating urban systems design. This chapter also discusses how to establish planning support systems integrated with building and transport simulations to support urban systems design. Firstly, we review current trends of geographical information systems–related platforms and spatial planning or modeling. Then, we discuss system dynamics for arranging urban complex systems. Finally, we introduce two simulation results as integrated spatial modeling examples. The two simulations are related to energy sharing analysis, considering both building (photovoltaic) and mobility (electronic vehicle) energies. The first is a city-scale study using a land-use transport model. The second is a community (block)-scale study using optimized matching and community clustering approaches.
