The urban environments may have much functionality in different issues that each one depends on different aspects. This paper presents an analytical framework in spatial database systems for urban layouts to study the relations between urban forms and functionalities of urban environments. The selected functionality that is considered in this paper is Responsiveness of urban environments. The method is based on a precise introduction of the concept in a spatial computational procedure. The presented method makes a comprehensive introduction and consists of parameters and their interactions.  The applied method has two main components that are the introduction of responsive environments and the spatial database of urban layouts. The mapping of the parameters and relations to objects and attributes spatial database leads to retrieving the function of responsiveness in spatial database. The method uses many spatial and geometrical parameters to measure the urban layout’s components and presents the 16 logical relations between the responsive environments and spatial database components. The implementation is done for district 12, region 4 of the Tehran and the output layers are verified by people’s opinions, land use map of extent and field observations.

Keywords: Spatial database, Urban forms, Responsive environments, Ontology
