It had been revealed by substantial studies of every aspect that the development of metropolitan-coordinating districts had been playing a vital role in the exploration of Northwestern China.In this article,facing with the environmental challenge and the appeal of theory innovation in the advance of this sector,we carefully examined the progress of its urban planning research and cautiously pondered the significance of its massive metropolitan growth.Then,by utilizing the tier-analyzing methods,we made a comparison and assessment of the urbanization conditions among the capital cities of this area.Finally,based upon the research of the urban system planning and relevant investigations,we watchfully analyzed the recent status of these capital cities and vigilantly conjectured their directions of urban sprawl.Resting upon the inquiries above,we found that in recent years the urban districts of these cities had been significantly improved.They had reached the preliminary stage of metropolitan-coordinating areas and had been exerting a great impact on the sustainable progress of Northwestern China.A sound conclusion could be safely drawn that the further cultivation and growth of these metropolitan clusters in this region would be theoretically plausible,economically practical and future-prosperous.
