Abstract

Urban planning is a highly suitable experimental area with respect to cooperation in the information processing (ADP) between CMEA-countries and Finland.Regardless of social systems, all participating towns are alike and urban planning information systems in CMEA-countries could be consistent with those operating in Finland and vice-versa.Acquaintance with other countries' systems together with their practical applications may well result in new ideas, benefits and savings.During the sixteenth meeting of the Joint Commission for Cooperation between Finland and CMEA-countries the following participants were included in the project "Computer aided urban planning": Terplan, the Institute for Regional Planning and Urbion, the Institute for Urban Planning from Czechoslovakia, TSNIIP from USSR, VATI from Hungary and Finnmap Oy, LT-Engineering and the Laboratory of Urban Planning and Building Design from Finland.Finland made a proposition of arranging a seminar on the same subject.The Finnish ministry of Trade and Industry awarded a grant to the Laboratory of Urban Planning and Building Design of VTT for the purpose of organizing the seminar 12th-16th September, 1988 and for publishing the resulting report.In the report there are the lectures given in the seminar and a letter describing the results and the continuation of the project.
