Mobile positioning big data can play an important role in the implementation monitoring of territorial and spatial planning. Based on the theory of “space of flows”, the functional integration of metropolitan area is represented by intercity functional linkages in the area. The two intercity functional linkages of living-working and working-working are the signs of the functional integration of a metropolitan area. This study took Shanghai metropolitan area as an example, and proposed a set of methods for monitoring the functional integration of the metropolitan area with mobile positioning big data. First, mobile positioning big data can effectively quantify intercity functional linkages from intercity travels. Second, there are three application areas of mobile positioning big data in the implementation monitoring of territorial and spatial planning. The first is to delineate the scope of close connection in the metropolitan area using intercity functional linkages. The second is to describe and quantify the functional flow of resources brought by the industrial division in the metropolitan area. The third is to monitor the performance of transportation infrastructure in the metropolitan area. Finally, with functional integration as the goal, the spatial planning of the metropolitan area needs to be guided by a spatial system that supports intercity functional linkages. The system of “flow space” with intercity functional linkages should be one of the important contents of planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.

Key words: metropolitan area, territorial and spatial planning, intercity functional linkages, mobile positioning big data, implementation monitoring, Shanghai
