Spatial process analysis and simulation is one of the hot research areas. However, spatio-optimization is usually based on static patterns which ignore the dynamic process. This paper discusses the concept of collaborative space simulation and optimization and then provides the examples on how simulation and optimization can be integrated. The examples include optimal site selection for public facilities, path coverage optimization, nature reserve planning and scenarios simulation for urban energy consumption. Results show that this proposed method can be successfully applied especially for the fast growing regions.
