Abstract
  • A Geographic Information System (GIS) can be a powerful tool for solving land use planning problems. The synthesis, analysis, and depiction of spatial data make it a valuable tool for land use planners. A primary issue with GIS is the cost and time required to develop a functional system. One of the major impediments to functionality are the time and resources required for data development. This paper reports on a study completed for Deschutes County Oregon. The work was part of a contract with Deschutes County to evaluate boundaries and standards for the County's Exclusive Farm Use (EFU) zones. Under Oregon Statewide Land Use Planning Goal 3, each county is required to develop these boundaries and standards and review them periodically. GIS data and methodology were developed to complete the study. Because of limited time and resources, data developed for the GIS were gathered from readily available resources, such as the Oregon State GIS Service Center and the Deschutes County Assessor. This paper compares the techniques and methods for developing this relatively inexpensive GIS with follow-up research where more extensive and detailed data were made available for the same study area. Particular emphasis is given to comparing the cost and usefulness of section level data resolution to parcel level resolution.
