This workbook is designed to guide the user through the formulation of the components of a future land use plan. It provides hands-on experience with the application of GIS technology for land analysis at various scales; guides the user through the process of working with factual land use, population and socio-economic data; as well as assessing land use policies to formulate alternative land use plans and designs. The workbook also includes a special CD containing GIS data files. New to this edition are many additional illustrative images, GIS exercise instructions written for ArcGIS with useful screenshots to facilitate the completion of exercises, and revised and new data sets on CD (including parcels, roads, water and sewer service boundaries, and streams). This new edition also includes updated and new exercises for identifying issues and constructing scenarios; communitywide land use design; creating a small area plan; land supply and demand acreages via generalized land use categories, and the plan quality evaluation protocol. The exercises in this workbook are designed to complement Urban Land Use Planning, fifth edition, but also may be used on their own in city planning, geography, and urban studies courses.
