Spatial planning as a typical example of decision-making, resulting in the term land use is a complex and lengthy process, and thus high- risk. All activities that occur at the level of land use must be reasonable and due to the need for sustainable development, and address the needs of the social, economic and environmentally conditioned. The most often encountered definition of optimal land use is that which causes the highest land value from among the physically possible and legally permitted forms of use, while remaining consistent with its function. Optimization of urban functions is to verify the function of the area's most mismatched and the proposal to convert them to fit the functionality most common features of natural and anthropogenic. Adaptation of problem areas should be based on the opinion of the inhabitants of the city, reflecting their current needs as well as on. economic calculation which takes into account possible revenue and cost of land transformation in terms of the characteristics of natural and anthropogenic. This paper presents a procedure for determination of the optimal states of land use as a tool in the urban space management process. The developed algorithm combines the basic rules of the social, economic and ecological optimization. This algorithm will help to determine the optimal land use function with clearly-defined actions necessary to perform the planned task. The aim is also to collect, systematize and develop an optimal set of geo-information describing the status of land use as a criterion for the evaluation as the basis for the transformation of land use. The result is a clean and simple scheme allowing for the transformation of land use and selection of the optimal use of land. The spatial use optimization procedure aims to minimize uncertainty in the spatial planning process. The proposed system can be used on different scales and with diverse degrees of detail of spatial analyses and with the so-called “spatial monitoring” to analyze and verify individual land management forms with regard to minimizing the costs of transformation and maximizing income.
