Computers and Information Systems in Planning and Related Governmental Functions.
Tucker, Dorothy; Vance, Mary, Ed.
The 266 items cited include material published since July 1960, organized in the following ten groups: (1) general discussion, and feasibility; (2) statewide electronic data processing (EDP) systems; (3) EDP in local governments; (4) intergovernmental EDP systems; (5) EDP in the planning agency; (6) data banks and information systems; (7) computer graphics; (8) information retrieval; (9) time-sharing and user-oriented systems and (10) models, gaming, simulation, and operations research techniques. Publications by or about Federal Government EDP installations and their applications are excluded. In addition, no attempt was made to cover all works involving the use of EDP in state or local governments. Specifically omitted are those writings that pertain to such limited applications as tax billings, payroll or other accounting procedures, or specialized fields such as police work or hospital administration. The references chosen in the governmental categories are either known or thought to be concerned with general uses which could conceivably include planning. Other limitations include the virtual absence of foreign sources and no attempt was made to cover the field of traffic, transportation, or highway uses of EDP. (Author/MF)
