Abstract

This paper introduces work being carried out by the VULCAN (Virtual Urban Laboratory Computer Aided Networks) research project undertaken at the University of Salford in the UK. The project aims to develop a technical system to facilitate public participation in the urban planning process based on the Chapel Street re-development area of Salford. This will combine geographic information system (GIS) and virtual reality (VR) technology. The participation will also take the form of iterative, user-led design through a user-needs analysis. This paper focuses on establishing an appropriate framework with robust methods capable of handling the complex, multi-disciplinary nature of this project and its problems. It is essential for the research to be grounded properly if reliable and valid conclusions are to be drawn. Discussion in this paper focuses upon the qualitative vs. quantitative debate and the appropriate methods for data collection and systems design that result from these two conceptual approaches.
