    Description

    The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the usefulness of a GIS in community open space planning of undeveloped recreational opportunities. The study area is a small New England village in the western region of Massachusetts. Like most of the Northeast, Northampton is a rural community with a growing population. Proposals for public recreation lands compete for commercial development.
