This is the first work to integrate and assess the considerable mass of recent research in environmental simulation within the broader context of public policy issues. Both the conceptual underpinnings as well as the methodologies of the discipline are examined in detail to provide environmental designers, architects, city planners, environmental psychologists, and natural resource managers with a comprehensive overview of the field.
