AbstractThe microcomputer is an important technological innovation that is having a big impact on urban planning. With the appropriate hardware and software, microcomputers can satisfy most of the word processing, data-base management, computation, graphics, statistical analysis, and modelling needs of planners. Planners who did not previously have access to mainframe computers or minicomputers can make use of the inexpensive but powerful microcomputer to assist their work. The technology is there. It is up to planners to decide to what extent it is used, how it is used, and how to organize its use. An attempt is made to discuss factors which affect the applications and extent of use of microcomputers in urban planning. Some of the constraints and impacts of using microcomputers in urban planning are examined. -Author
