Planning support systems for cities and regions.

Ed. by Richard K. Brail.

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy


292 pages




Educators, analysts, model builders, and users of information technology in urban and regional planning and policy formulation gathered in Cambridge, Massachusetts in September 2007, to present research that was later edited for the 11 essays in this volume. The topics include disseminating spatial decision support systems in urban planning, tools such as the land-use evolution and impact assessment model (LEAM), development control systems, and what practicing planners are looking for in these planning systems. Systems integrating spatial mapping, analysis, and visualization have been getting easier to use over the past decade at the same time public acceptance for them has been growing, although challenges remain.
