Techniques for evaluating similarities between categorical maps obtained by different spatial modeling techniques or representing similar space in different time instances are still developing. This paper reviews a current approach for assessing the similarity in land use maps that are used in city planning processes. The performance of recently designed kappa location and kappa histo measures as well as fuzzy set map comparison approach were tested on a case study area that comprises three cities of Belgrade's municipalities with different urban characteristics. By assessing similarities between the land use map of the Master plan designed for the year 2021 and the map representing the currently observed land use conditions, the level of realized planned activities as well as the level of discrepancy from the Master plan could be evaluated.
