THE UMPLIS AND IBIS APPROACHES TO ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INFORMATION SYSTEMS: AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
UMPLIS is the name applied to a specific, large scale, real-world environmental planning information system being developed and implemented for the German Federal Ministry of the Interior by the Studiengruppe fur systemforschung in Heidelberg. UMPLIS as a system includes IBIS (Issue-Based Information System) as one aspect of its operation. IBIS is a general model for the structuring of design, planning and policy decisions as argumentative processes, with features that encourage thoroughness in problem coverage and that assist in making the course of the argument explicit and retraceable. The bibliographic entries are arranged alphabetically in two sections, the first one containing synopses of the basic works in which the two approaches were initially described and explained, and the second containing abstracts of the principle English language publications to date. Sample forms for recording IBIS-form debates and an author and key word index follow the abstracts.
