Practical Applications of Space Systems, Supporting Paper 3: Land Use Planning.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Assembly of Engineering.
This report summarizes the findings of one of fourteen panels that studied progress in space science applications and defined user needs potentially capable of being met by space-system applications. The study was requested by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and was conducted by the Space Applications Board. The panels comprised user specialists drawn from federal, state, and local governments and from business and industry. In this report, the Panel on Land Use Planning defines the land use planning discipline; defines the current state-of-the-art as it may make use of information obtained by remote sensing; presents a 5- to 15-year scenario for the impact of remote sensing from air and space platforms on land use planning; and identifies critical factors in the applications of remotely sensed data to land use planning.
