Gholamreza Yavari, M. Mehdi Fazelbeygi

Abstract :

This research focuses on the development of small urban center or agropolitan that is agricultural–based small urban areas in rural regions with the aim of sustainable regional development. A method to make an agropolitan master plan is by using a technological tool like Remote Sensing (RS), Geographic Information System (GIS), and Global Positioning System (GPS), in combination with Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) playing a major role in developing effective information systems for regional development to realize the scientific management of agropoitan. The objective of this study is to identify criteria and alternative of agropolitan and select locations for constructing and development of an agropolitan area. The result of this study shows that the Eastern part of the district is a very suitable area for agropolitan in Prakasam district and Ongole region is best priority which is indicated by most potential area of primary commodity. In the other point of view, the agropolitan with agricultural business activities could generate all potencies in Ongole and the surrounding area that can improve the life situation of local people. Finally, development of agropolitan area leads to improve linkage between rural and urban to increasing prosperous rural society.
