This project, sponsored by the Plans and Projects Section of the London Borough of Merton, was a study of the ways that our sponsors could use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to make decisions regarding open spaces, and other matters, in the Borough. The project involved training the Merton staff to use GIS and the software package, MapInfo; writing and presenting tutorials; and producing sample maps. Besides illustrating the capabilities of MapInfo, these maps visually presented the Borough's open space data.
