Urban Land use planning activities investigate how a land is allocated to a specific function. Over the past few decades, development of the Mixed Land Use (MLU) application has become an essential planning model in developed countries and has considered as a key component in Smart Growth and New Urbanism. MLU works perfect only when done under a carefully planned program. Geographic Information System due to its great analysis of spatial issues can help us have a better understanding of this new concept. In this study, a conceptual framework for analysis of urban MLU on the basis of the spatial indicators and analysis is introduced. Criteria of the interest are: Accessibility, Intensity, Land per Capita, Clustering and diversity. According to the conceptual model, the mentioned criteria are applied for evaluating MLU levels in horizontal dimension in the 7th regional municipality of Tehran city. Results, obtained from aggregation of various criteria, demonstrate that the model can detect effects of MLU as well as specify limits and capabilities of every district in relation to the mentioned criteria. According to the results, Shahid Ghandi, Andisheh, Kaj and Niloufar’s neighborhoods as well as 3th 4th districts are in the better conditions based on the urban MLU indicators.
