The performance of urban standards as a way of evaluating the efficiency of facilities in the municipalities of inland areas.
In the inland areas, the organization of facilities and services, and their spatial distribution are challenges that can be overcome through the research of new tools.
In this paper we define the assessment of performance of urban standards. The methodological proposal is divided into several steps and implemented into a GIS environment. We developed a spatial index, that is function of a set of indicators that refer to the population and the area of influence of the generic urban facility, and which could be considered one of the basis of the strategic choices of the urban plan.
The methodology was applied to a municipality in the inland area of the Ancient Volceij (South Italy).
