    Spatial planning is defined as the change of the distribution of activities in space and the change of the links between them by converting forms of land use and property. Systematic spatial planning is the most advanced level in a hierarchy from data and going to information and knowledge, collected on each level of territorial holarchy. Systematization is achieved by data converting into higher forms through statistics, analysis, modeling, simulation, systems analysis and decision support systems. Application of Spatial optimization through systematic planning, focuses on the selection of reserves for optimal space planning. It will expand the use of these techniques through systematic spatial planning for more integrated land management objectives. Systematic planning activities (long-term strategy), to solve problems (short-term projects), development and management requires more research and management. Thus, we can conclude that spatial planning is the science that integrates four concepts: territorial planning (economic component), urban (social component), environmental protection and cultural models. Based on these findings, the main method of spatial planning to review all these concepts integrative method is SketchMatch. This method implies that in a span of one day (minimum) to a maximum of three days, a group of stakeholders, eg citizens, policy makers makers, farmers) meet to analyze, define and find solutions to a problem of spatial planning. Methods of systematic spatial planning have been applied successfully in the frame of project " Cat’s bend- Space for the river", developed in partnership with the Dutch Government - Department of Water Management and Planning 2008-2009.
