With the development of wireless technology and its infrastructure networks, information and communication technologies have become widely and deeply embedded in our daily lives. Technological and socioeconomic trends are gradually changing the concept of ICT-oriented urban planning strategies from the virtual city to the ubiquitous city. Many studies have tried to map the relationship between urban planning and ICT strategies, but how the means of implementation influence the outcomes of such strategies is lacking discussion. This study aims to establish an analytical framework for exploring the relationship between the means of implementation and the outcomes of such strategies. The ICT-oriented urban planning experience of Taipei City is used to test the limitations and application of the framework. The study finds that technological trends, physical infrastructure, ICT content, interface design, and user characteristics are key factors that subtly interrelate with each other and should be considered integral when initiating such strategies.
