Abstract: One of the main fields of economic growth in developing countries is the software industry, which is one of the innovative industries. Istanbul has a great potential for software creation with its artistic potential, its unique cultural heritage, social networks, and engagement. The purpose of this article is to explore the clustering pattern of Istanbul’s software industry and the choice of location from a spatial perspective, based on the types of economy. Three important conclusions have been reached by studying the spatial activity trends of the industry. Results include: (i) the software industry has a polycentric cluster pattern in the historical city center axis, (ii) a seat for the technological parks of particularly prestigious Universities in the center, and (iii) a chosen location in the center of town to benefit from the artistic industry. The results of this study will be a guide to the potential that will lead to the creative economy’s growth in Istanbul’s future plans.
