This chapter and the next two chapters will

guide you through how to design a Commu-

nityViz analysis in a planning project. To use

CommunityViz effectively, you should approach

a planning project with a step-by-step work plan

and time schedule. As part of the work plan, it is

important to balance the high-tech of computer

software analysis and visualization with the per-

sonal touch of human interaction. Your audience

and clients need to get a feel for CommunityViz

in order to understand how it produces results

and how those results embody the needs and

desires of the residents of the planning area.
