About this book

Part of the "Mastering GIS" series, this book critically evaluates how GIS is being implemented into different aspects of spatial planning. In bringing together a range of applications from the UK, USA and continental Europe that highlight examples of good and bad practice, "GIS and Spatial Planning in the Public Sector" presents professional spatial planners with practical guidance on the successful exploitation of GIS within a public planning organisation. This book is also an invaluable resource for upper-level undergraduate and masters students taking courses in GIS, planning, applied geography and environmental management. It discusses the uses of GIS at different operational scales (strategic, tactical, operational) and different spatial scales (national, regional, local).
