In the early 1970s, the preparation of staff reports on land-use matters was a complicated and lengthy logistical affair. Things have, of course, changed over the past 45-plus years. The computer, word processing programs, portable document formats that can be posted for viewing on websites, and digital graphics have all affected planning practice, but to what degree?
This issue of Zoning Practice discusses the use of digital graphics in staff reports based on a survey of and interviews with local planners. It describes the research methodology, summarizes the results, and concludes with observations about and recommendations for using digital graphics in contemporary planning practice.
