It is necessary to note that Ufa is also aimed at fulfilling large infrastructural projects only after its mathematical modeling in order to understand what changes follow the exploitation of, for example, a new road or an overpass. Moreover the experience of Shenyang in the urban development planning became especially fascinating.

The district of Hunan built recently in Shenyang differs with its modern approach to urban economy and territory development. The work with network communications is an example.
