    . The project is divided into 2 main parts: the guide and the application directory. The guide reviews basic concepts and components of a computer system. It then examines various parks and recreation computer applications using 'off-the-shelf' packages as well as custom-designed software. Pertinent issues in the planning and implementation of a computer information system are discussed. The application directory includes the findings of a recent survey which documents the various computer applications and computer users in Canadian parks and recreation services. The information is presented by software application and type of hardware.
