ABSTRACT
The aim of the paper was both to present the possibility of use of the method of the search of space with specific features and identify the fragments with similar features. The described method was designed to automate the operation of original hybrid method in the field of space planning grouping of similar spatial parameters. Extremely useful seems to be here digitization of spatial data, underlying geographic information system. The hybrid method combines methods of spatial assessment and valuation (Bajerowski’s method), numerical taxonomy (Ward’s method) and axioms of the theory of planning spatial use (totality axiom). The article describes the principles of group planning space using the Ward’s method. The algorithm was tested on one of the rural districts of Warmia and Mazury (Poland). The application demonstrated the effectiveness of the method in grouping the planning of homogeneous features. Assumptions of method are universal and can be used depending on purpose of the search by the wider group of stakeholders.

Keywords: GIS for sustainable development, spatial data, spatial planning, Ward’s method.
