Abstract or Summary
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a burgeoning field with its roots in geography. It is increasingly being used by a large variety of disciplines, including land use planning, as a decision support tool to help solve complex spatial problems. At Oregon State University, researchers have developed an analog model which will assist planners in designating 'secondary' or marginal resource lands. The OSU Secondary Lands Model is translated into a series of digital algorithms and applied to a study area in north-central Lane County, Oregon with pcARC/INFO, a popular personal computer (PC) GIS program. Translation of the analog model to digital is analyzed and summarized in the conclusion. Lessons learned from this research are drawn upon to make recommendations to others who wish to use GIS in land use planning or any other multi-disciplinary environment. These include careful data preparation, avoiding the pitfalls of 'digital determinism,' keeping data broken down into their smallest components, and using appropiate data structures.
