Arguing that intelligent urban policymaking requires both a spatial and an analytical understanding of how cities are organized, this examination of how residential patterns are shaped by population and employment uses geographic information systems (GIS) and a ""one world"" approach to policy research and new urban planning challenges in global metropolitan regions and megacities. The analysis of new perspectives on urban research and policy questions that GIS provides is a significant contribution to the collective effort to solve urban policy problems.
