TERRAIN AND MATERIALS EVALUATION IN TOWN AND REGIONAL PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT

THE PAPER ILLUSTRATES THE USE OF INFORMATION ON TERRAIN AND MATERIALS IN THE PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF NEW OR EXISTING AREAS, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ENGINEERING GEOLOGIST IN SUCH A PROJECT. THE NEED FOR CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE VARIOUS MEMBERS OF THE PLANNING TEAM AND A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF EACH OTHER'S REQUIREMENTS IS EMPHASIZED AND SOME METHODS OF PRESENTATION ARE PROPOSED TO ASSIST THE ASSIMILATION OF INFORMATION BY THE RESPECTIVE USERS. ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO THE FINANCIAL SAVINGS WHICH MIGHT BE REALIZED BY NOT ONLY UTILIZING THE INFORMATION DURING THE PLANNING STAGES BUT ALSO BY MAKING THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO THE CONTRACTOR AT THE TENDERING STAGE. /RRL/
