I'm currently working on my master's thesis in land use planning at a small university in Norway. My thesis is about
the use of the Internet in the planning profession, and deals both with improvement of the planning process and
online public participation. A survey that I'm currently conducting indicated that about 80 % of Norwegian city planning
departments have Internet access.

I have two questions:

1. Does anyone know of any work that has been done on this topic? I've only found one - a master's thesis from Cal Poly, Pomona, CA.

2. What is your opinion on the role of the Internet in planning?

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
