Abstract
Our paper discusses the problems of socio-economic development typical for many regions at the municipal level in the conditions of spatial heterogeneity of the territory. The solution to such problems is largely related to the so-called “Path Dependence” study. As the historical legacy of the previous development, the administrative-territorial division limits necessary transformations. Specifics of the local institutions inevitably reinforce Path Dependence. The paper presents the analysis of administrative-territorial restrictions of development associated with the assessment of the main spatial characteristics of municipalities. The methodology for conducting such analysis involves the use of informationally adapted (geo-information) approaches. They use a combination of visualization, heuristic approaches, classifications, and formalized mathematical assessment tools. A similar analysis was carried out for a group of municipalities in the central part of the Chelyabinsk region of Russia. Using the example of the industrial territories of the Urals, we have a representative indicator of spatial problems. Based on the research results, several conceptual and methodological provisions are presented. They are focused on organizing effective interaction for a system of heterogeneous municipalities in managing spatial development and becoming leaders of development territories.
