This study uses Wuhan as a case study to construct a comprehensive framework for metropolitan areas. It develops a multi-source heterogeneous data integration management platform, which includes geographical monitoring data, socio-economic statistical data, and emerging big data sources. Based on the platform, the research team investigate the complex distribution patterns and internal differentiations within the Wuhan metropolitan area, examining aspects such as spatial expansion, transportation infrastructure development, population migration patterns, and economic activities. By providing empirical evidence and insightful perspectives, this study equips policymakers with the necessary tools to inform judicious planning decisions and formulate robust strategies for the future development of metropolises.
