ROBERT B. POlTER In a recently published paper, Franklin (1979) has stressed in unequivocal terms the pressing need for the evolution of soundly based and effective physical development, or land use planning systems in Third World countries. He also observed that physical planning is too often regarded as a highly sophisticated professional activity that is primarily of a negative and restricting nature and peculiar to the needs of the advanced nations. However, he emphasized that âIt is even more essential that developing countries with their rapidly increasing populations, tremendous human needs, large-scale and unplanned rural-urban migration, too rapid and unbalanced urban growth, high levels of unemployment, and limited resources of all kinds, should do everything possible to ensure that development takes place in a planned, orderly and effective mannerâ (Franklin, 1979, p. 9). I t can be argued, therefore, that the identification and employment of appropriate survey, analysis and planning techniques stands as a priority of the highest order in many developing countries. I t is argued here that geographical techniques of perception research afford one method by which Third World urban planning practice and planningrelated research can be carried out in a more effective and appropriate manner.
