This study, taking big data, urban planning and public participation as the starting point, tried to seek the best combination and establish a potential bridge among them. In this way, planners can not only apply the new technology into urban planning, but also deeply understand the urban planning during the technology development. As a result, a visual, dynamic and interactive smart city platform will be built to improve the ability of information exchange and the level of public participation.
