Goodspeed Publishes Field Study on Planning Support Systems
Assistant Professor Robert Goodspeed published an article titled “Sketching and learning: A planning support system field study” in the journal Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design. Goodspeed’s field study addresses the necessity of planning support systems in improving planning processes.
The field study evaluates the performance of a planning support systems used for sketch planning as part of a land use planning project in metropolitan Austin, Texas. The study used learning and dialog quality as the planning support systems performance measures. Goodspeed’s work contributes to a wider effort to develop and implement robust measures of planning support systems performance and links concept of planning support systems performance to broader theories of learning.
Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design is a journal devoted to the field of urban planning and design. Its goal is the publication of high-quality articles which report leading edge research in the application of formal methods, methods models, and theories to spatial problems which involve the built environment and the spatial structure of cities and regions.
