The Planners Guide to CommunityViz: The Essential Tool for a New Gerenation of Planning by Doug Walker and Tom Daniels

With more than 325 full color illustrations, charts, graphs, and screenshots.

Full of practical examples and case studies, The Planners Guide to CommunityViz shows how CommunityViz GIS-based software can enliven the comprehensive planning process —from visioning, to public participation, to values mapping— and shows how to use CommunityViz to analyze zoning regulations, calculate the costs of community services, and evaluate development proposals requiring design review. In addition, the book describes applications of CommunityViz to transportation planning, natural resource planning, land-development suitability assessment, and urban economic development analysis.
