This paper is the result of the adaptation and testing of the IMGRID Programming System acquired from Harvard University, for land use studies in the Department Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at Utah State University. The system utilizes rectangular coordinate grid cell data for storage and analysis, and is now in operation on the Burroughs B 6700 computer system.
The operation of Utah State IMGRID is documented here to reflect the types of analyses which are currently performed in this region, and examples provided to demonstrate the system to graduate students and others who are interested in land use analysis.
Information is also which will assist in preparing the system to accept the modeling criteria and information from different study sites for analysis.
This paper is directed towards a user who has a limited knowledge of computer applications in land use studies.
