Introduction:  This article is related to the rapid development of urbanization and the role of ICT development on it. Meanwhile, people's relationships with urban space are changing. The spatial effects of ICT on the urban form is one of the most important elements in the provision of urban infrastructure. The concept of Smart City is presented as a winning urban strategy to improve life quality in urban space.
Research aim: This study aims at theoretical explanation of the landuse situation in Smart cities. Also, by analyzing of existing literature, it seeks to understand the hierarchy and how the criteria of smart city affect the priorities of landuse in planning policies.
Method: the research method is based on descriptive-analytic approach and Then through the AHP model the landuse priorities and the sensitivity of the factors are determined.
Resualts: The research findings show that based on the six main criteria of the Smart City, each of which is related to its equation on urban landuse category, and the 18 sub-criteria related to them, the fowllowing land uses is prioritized respectively according to Smart City indicators: the infrastructures and services, residential and mixed, educational, green spaces, administrative and Industrial.
Conclusion: The results show that ICT have a significant impact on urban activities that changes people's decision about choosing a place and how it is accessed. Therefore, if smart targets are considered, prioritization and planning of landuse will be different from the city that does not pursue these goals.
