PHYSIOGRAPHIC APPROACH TO LAND USE PLANNING

Advantages of a physiographic approach are that it focuses on the problems at the proper scale and conserves energy, effort, and time by selecting the critical parameters; stresses geologic structure and process as factors which should control land use; and presents data in a form which the non-geologically trained planner can easily understand. This paper proposes a classification of smaller physiographic units and presents two examples of how they can be used for planning purposes. Below the section, the units used in this paper are the subsection, the land type, and the topographic element.
