The development of software systems to aid in physical planning

by B. S. Smedley
Physical planning for geographic areas such as cities, counties, or regions can be greatly simplified if the planner can display the entity under consideration together with land-use and socioeconomic data and can interact easily with that data to modify the presentation and redisplay it. Presented in this paper are a system and a language to aid such physical planning and user experience with the system and language. Further research on graphic presentation, the incorporation of models and statistical routines are also discussed.
