Description: We will present a method of combining computer mapping with manual overlays. An example of its use is the Willamette River Greenway Study produced for the State of Oregon Department of Transportation in 1974. This one year planning study included analysis of data relevant to a 286-mile river system. The product is a "wise use" plan which conserves the basic character of the land. The process offers a complete analysis and overview for sensitivity of land to human use. Visual qualities of the landscape as well as environmental and cultural resources were recorded and displayed in various combinations for analysis. Opportunities for specific use and management guidelines were also based on the integrity of the resource.
