This article is dedicated to the modeling of regional development through the prism of economic growth. In the approach to regional development we focus on measures of economic growth and grouping the problems in spatial and territorial aspect. The main functional features of regional development are displayed in theoretical order as well as the structural characterization of economic growth and its interpretation in the context of regional systems modeling. Examined are the peculiarities of territory and its performance in economic terms. There is also a comparative analysis between regional development and economic growth. This raises the need to study the development of settlements in order to better illustrate the processes of development of geo-spaces through the prism of the introduction of new communication technologies.
