A Design Study of a Planning Information System for Kansas.
Langston-Kitch and Associates, Inc., Wichita, KS.
Efforts of this planning study are limited to the pressing needs of state agencies for planning which were identified earlier, plus an attempt to identify data elements common to many agencies that relate directly to the State Economic Development Planning Program. The major categories of data types essential to the planning system are land use, health and social resources, water resources, recreation resources and economics. A study survey revealed there were numerous information systems projects underway and a need for standardization of data elements for data exchange. Recommendations included the continuation of support for information systems activity, population information should be emphasized, a land use requirements manual is needed, a "Directory of State Information" should be developed and maintained, the Kansas civic audit should be completed, a data control committee should be established, and the recreation and economic information that has been developed should be maintained. The requirements for implementing these recommendations are analyzed. (AB)
