The dynamic development of technology benefits from an access to information about space, and thus this development has a significant impact on the urban form of cities. This applies not only to spatial behaviour of users but also to the principles of spatial policy. The purpose of this study is to systematise knowledge in the field of shaping the development of tall buildings in Poland in the light of available spatial data and their impact on the urban structure of cities. The method of aggregation of spatial data in the form of a point cloud from LiDAR laser scanning was validated; geospatial analysis and map studies in the GIS environment were conducted taking into account trends in building height distribution. The conclusions highlight the primary aim of the latest research methods that can be implemented in the context of urban analysis. The case study of Wrocław shows that the method for the aggregation of spatial data from laser scanning is a universal research tool in the search for trends occurring in the urban form of the city, in particular with relation to building height.
