Nowadays mapping has a wider meaning in regards to our cognition of its complexity in physical, socio-economic, natural, institutional and cultural aspects. Sustainability has opened plenty of meanings on city development from participation to systematic management of city development. The question on who decides on city development opens a discussion on ways and disciplines on its mapping. In other words the main issue is related to the source of knowledge, information and data we collect, systematize and form into our cognition of the city in whole: ...... The research will consult two dominant paradigms in city development: collaborative and positivistic-rational in order to track the ways on its mapping in Castell's network society. The main hypothesis is that mapping today is an artistic thing in regards to Forester's dilemma on future of urban planning and development. Hence, we need art to integrate different, more particular, worlds of the city using technology as an i...nstrument of the process of integration. The hypothesis will be elaborated using theoretical comparison as well as case study of TIS development in City of Niš developed and implemented during UN-Habitat Settlement Integration Refugees Programme in Serbia, which was developed over the five years together with relevant stakeholders.
