Improving Planning Land Use in Wisconsin with ERDAS IMAGINE

Concerns about the urbanization of the countryside, the loss of rural character and its impact on the farm economy and recreational opportunities have become common. A key part of the regional comprehensive planning process is an update of the regional land use inventory. Because East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (Menasha, Wisconsin) regularly employs aerial photography as input material for other planning processes, such as recreation and open space planning, it decided to digitize the project with geographic imaging software, using orthophotographs as references.
