AN INFORMATION SYSTEM DESIGN FRAMEWORK FOR STATE RAIL PLANNING

This paper describes an information system developed to support the state rail planning process, with special emphasis on the factors related to disposition of abandoned rail rights-of-way. The information system developed for rail re-use planning is claimed to be expandable to rail distribution analysis and rail management. The concept is compatible with information systems for other modes and is relatable to land use information systems.
