This section highlights the importance of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and their
applicability in the area of urban growth, because they allow to determine accurately and spatially
represent the occupation of the territory, where social, economic, environmental factors, among
others, are involved. From this, GIS and Multicriterio Evaluation (EMC) were used under the
Booleana Logic in order to determine optimal areas for residential occupation, (towers of multifamily apartments) in the city of Montería (Colombia), around 355,317 inhabitants, who have put
pressure on urban growth. The results show an optimal area of 15000 square meters located on the
north-eastern side of Montería, within Commune Number Eight, an area that has an optimal
capacity to house new residential facilities, based on an analysis that involves social,
environmental and accessibility aspects. Highlighting the importance of the north-eastern part of
the city as a new focus of growth, in terms of optimal location and recent urban developments.
