This booklet is set a specific set of geo-information applied sciences often called making plans aid structures (PSS). It specializes in the adoption and alertness of PSS in perform. It goals to demonstrate top perform and to illustrate new tools which are being constructed for growing the subsequent iteration of PSS to be used in numerous public or deepest zone making plans contexts. The booklet serves as a medium for the alternate of information, insights and reports, thereby combating these operating during this box from having to reinvent the wheel . It additionally serves to speak information about PSS method and administration to these much less educated approximately modern advancements. The e-book stimulates new and interesting purposes of PSS in different making plans events. It offers making plans practitioners, process builders and researchers with beneficial insights into what making plans help platforms are, how they are often built and carried out, and within which events they could supply helpful aid for determination making.

The need in planning and policy making to answer both ‘what-if’ and ‘so-what’ questions is a key basis for the LEAM framework. In LEAM, the land-use transformation potential of individual cells is evaluated by explicitly quantifying the forces (drivers) that contribute to change. Understanding the causal mechanisms of change provide local decision makers an opportunity for testing policy and investment choices and are a critical component for completing scenario-planning exercises. Driver sub-models are locally dependent and derived through both analysis and local stakeholder interaction.

From this assessment it appears, perhaps not surprisingly, that each PSS has its strong and weak points but, especially in combined applications, they provide a remarkably useful toolbox for planners. SLEUTH and What if? function as instruments to build a range of future land-use scenarios and appear to be appropriate tools for improving the understanding of the policy implications of these scenarios. Google Earth, as an exponent of virtual globe products, provides a novel way to visualize landscape futures and thus helps to better engage planners, politicians and communities in discussing the outcomes of complex models.
