Resources and Planning focuses on the trends, approaches, techniques, and emergence of new concepts in geography, as well as the use of models in planning endeavors.
The selection first offers information on planning education and practice, including systems models and inner cities dilemma. The book also examines planning processes and mathematical modeling in land use planning. Topics include general assessment and development of urban modeling; extensions and developments of the gravity model; essential dualism of knowledge and action; science and design as problem-solving processes; and planning processes as social learning.
The manuscript ponders on zone definition in spatial modeling and patterns of information use in planning, including problems and alternative approaches to zone system design. The text also concentrates on maps as source materials; quantitative developments in geography and planning in a practical reasoning framework; human's impact on climate with particular reference to energy balance changes; and climate and town planning.
The book is a fine reference for readers interested in geography, particularly the trends, techniques, and approaches used in this discipline.
