Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 7)


The idea at the basis of our work is to build an integrated system to support local government officials’ activity in the field of building development control. This paper illustrates the evolution of the urban information systems implemented by our Institute, in relationship both to the potentialities offered by the integration with hypertext and expert systems modules, and to the simplicity of use, having as a goal the adoption of these systems in small-sized Centres for building development control. The possibility to also access the urban information systems through Internet makes besides possible to extend their use to the building professionals and to the citizens, strengthening, in conclusion, the possibilities of a democratic control of the urban development. The research is actually involved in testing different techniques to develop our prototype on the Internet.
