Abstract: Many resource planning models have been developed, but few have been implemented.
Frequently, months are needed to prepare inputs for a few seconds of analysis. The analysis output again requires weeks of plotting for easy comprehension. Although analysis time has been reduced drastically, preparation of inputs and display of outputs have become bottlenecks to most resource
Planning is usually an iterative process. Original inputs must be frequently
referenced to generate new planning actions. For example, transferring of water from wet to dry areas requires study of existing water supply conditions spatially. Creating an efficient input data basis for fast retrieval and display will speed up the planning process.
The iterative process generates a large volume of output which must be
quickly displayed, a fact which requires a fast display system. A print-plot
display system for both inputs and outputs was developed to improve. the planning
process based on the resource model developed earlier by Liang (1976,
