    Description

    This paper justifies and illustrates (in simplified form) a landscape planning approach to the environmental management of the metropolitan landscape. The model utilizes a computerized assessment and mapping system, which exhibits a recent advancement in computer technology that allows for greater accuracy and the weighting of different values when mapping at the regional scale. It assesses resource, hazardous, and developmentally suitable areas in order to determine the consequences of development in these areas, and to channel development to the most environmentally appropriate of these areas.
