چکیده

To achieve sustainable urban development and values from social justice; it is essential that all citizens enjoy resources, facilities and life opportunities equally. Due to lack of a stable or systematic approach of measuring urban problems, disparity in environmental conditions or access to social and physical infrastructures is more obvious, especially in the cities of developing countries. In this article, a hybrid method is presented using urban indicators and geographical information system (GIS), as reliable identification tools and a criterion, to produce information related to policies in complex and multidimensional aspects of spatial disparities. His information could be used by the policy makers in order to inform them about where the first target is and in what proportion they should invest. In case study of Tabriz, this method indicates how the combination of urban indicators and GIS is a valuable tool for access of better management in resources towards balancing and spatial order in population and activities. The results of this study can help to apply reforming policies through better understanding of intra-urban disparities and optimal trace of resources. It can also help to identify poor households based on redistribution credit with the geographical component attractive to planners and decision makers.
