Abstract

A number of organisations worldwide that have physical planning missions and mandates widely adopted geospatial information systems (GIS) during the 1990s, and GIS has become a common and necessary global tool for urban and regional planning. A State-wide study was conducted in the State of Queensland, Australia during the last decade to help advance the implementation there of GIS used for urban and regional planning. One of the research objectives was to identify constraints for GIS adoption at the local government level. Questionnaires were used as an instrument for data collection in two phases, first in 1991 and again in 1999. Of the 50 questionnaires circulated, 22 were returned. The profiles of the survey participants have been published already, along with some of the initial research findings (Otawa, 2002a; Otawa, 2002b).
