Comprehensive and accurate information plays a key role in urban planning process. Recent developments in Information Communications Technologies (ICT) have provided considerable challenges and opportunities to improve the management of planning processes and make better use of planning information. However, data sharing and integration are always problematic for urban planning tasks because urban datasets are heterogeneous and scattered in different domains and organisations. It is stated that planners spend about 80 percent of their time to coordinate various datasets and analysis information (Singh 2004). The aim of this research is to develop a technical solution to providing information support for urban planning. The research will focus on planning data representation and integration in order to produce semantically rich urban models.
