This can only be achieved when what the city presents (identity), what is perceived (image) and its evaluation by users (the evaluative image), what makes a pleasant or unpleasant feeling from a place (meaning) and what that presents the comprehensive image to be discovered and interpreted and be the fundamental basis for practice of urban planners and managers. The present study aimed to explain the image model especially the evaluative mental image of Bushehr city, theoretically.
