The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) is a regional planning agency and Metropolitan Planning Organization in central Oklahoma, responsible for maintaining a large data base of information concerning various demographic, socioeconomic, land use and other infrastructure data. The manipulation of data involved preparation of a new long range comprehensive land use plan. In so doing, ACOG began to move away from the traditional planning techniques used for the development of previous land use plans towards the development of a regional computerized information system. The paper describes some technical details of the old system and the new system. It also provides information on how the transition from the old system to the new system took place. Also described are the difficulties and problems of the switch and recommendations based on our experience.
