Abstract

Public input has become an important part of the planning process for many communities and participatory design charettes. This Capstone project considers the impacts and opportunities of using these interactive technologies for participatory planning. It then looks at a charrette that was performed in 2006 using traditional pencil and paper "chip" game, and how this same process could have been conducted using the GIS extension program CommunityViz. Possible advantages of automating charrettes are considered. Finally, this project explores what added features of the charrette could have been included by using CommunityViz, and considers future applications and adaptability of this project.
