More About This Textbook


This book demonstrates the state of the art in the use of information systems and modelling methods in different spatial/geographical planning contexts. It provides a review of developments in the 1990s and detailed insights into the current application of geographical information technology in urban, physical, environmental and socio-economic planning. Important advances in the use of the Internet for access to data and to GIS for planning are also considered. Perspectives are provided by a wide range of contributors from academia, planning practice and the business world.
