Abstract  Urban sustainability has become the world’s most important urban issue.The evaluation index system is an effective tool to objectively diagnosethe current status and problems of sustainable development.The existing urban sustainability evaluation index systems are mostly based on traditional statistical data and they have different emphases.Due to the suitability of index and availability of data,etc,These index systems are hardly used for comparative evaluation amongdifferent cities.With the interpretation of the sustainable city connotation by the Sustainable Development Goals11,and the use of multi-source data such as remote sensing and network big data,it is possible to achieve higher resolution for urban sustainability assessment under a unified standard.Based on this,this work analyzes the evolution of the concept of urban sustainable development and identifies the key areas of the connotation of sustainable city construction.This work also summarizes the research progress of sustainability evaluation indicators and analyzes typical index system.Based on SDG11,this study establish an open city sustainability index system,with combining traditional statistical data and multi\|source data,such as remote sensing data and network big data.The framework of the evaluation index system aims to provide reference for the sustainability evaluation of cities in China under the framework of the United Nations.
Key words:  Sustainable city      Evaluation index      SDG11      Multiple source data
