Abstract: Land use intensity as a measure of degree of development, is and important element of urban form. The intensity of urban land use types is determined spatially trough enacting land use zoning. Cities are under circumstances of experiencing continuous land use change due to rapid urbanization process and resultant demand for land for various human needs. Dhaka city of Bangladesh, being one of the populous cities of the word, is observing mostly haphazard development in an unplanned way of horizontal and vertical use of use zoning and height zoning failed to render a comprehensive development indication to ensure planned and sustainable growth of the city. This study is an effort to quantify the spatial pattern of land use activities in terms of their intensity by proposing an amalgamation of both horizontal and vertical measurement of the space used in the city.
