<boxed-text position="float">Case Study: Streetscape Public Consultati +on All streetscape projects in the public realm demand a complex response + from the design team. In addition to the physical design, the reacti +on of users to the space will have both socioeconomic and cultural re +percussions for long-term sustainability. Previous research has shown + that the way people interact with the urban public environment depen +ds largely on their perception of the physical design of that space. +In addition, a high number of users could provoke increased congestio +n and deterioration in quality, while, naturally, too few visitors wi +ll fail to satisfy commercial investment. It is a central role of the quantity surveyor within the modern design + team to advise the client and other disciplines of how the project w +ill influence both cost and value. This research was concerned with t +rying to understand how projects undertaken with the aim of improving + the quality of public space could subsequently influence the economi +c performance of the surrounding areas. The main objective of the wor +k was to determine those environmental investments which will sustain + the population that best meets the aims of wealth creation and quali +ty of life. The research fully recognised the importance of public pa +rticipation in the design of urban public space, and sought to assist + the designer through the development of reliable and reproducible me +thodologies. Although specific areas were studied as cases within the + work, the major output was that of a method for utilising photo-real +istic computer models within value studies (Figure 8.1).<fig position +="float">Figure 8.1 Map used in focus groups.</fig> &#x003C;a id="page_276"/>The public wealth, with its connotations for +social, financial and environmental success, can be better assured wh +ere the public has been adequately included in the design and develop +ment processes. This work adds to a field of research concerning the +use of computer models within social enquiry, which has been developi +ng for many years. The work was also important in that it established + how experimental methods taken from <emphasis type="italic">environm +ental economics</emphasis> (such as choice experiments) could be appl +ied within the built environment, and particularly when using models +traditionally used as a marketing or basic communication device withi +n the industry (Figure 8.2).<fig position="float">Figure 8.2 Still + from 3D studio model.</fig> This project provided a methodology and socioeconomic data for use by +designers, and extended the applicability of choice experimentation i +n the built environment. The method was developed using case study si +tes which were selected due to the varied mix of individuals and grou +ps which could be classed as users or stakeholders. The project clear +ly demonstrated that highly quantitative approaches to the measuremen +t of <emphasis type="italic">value</emphasis> could be &#x003C;a id=" +page_277"/>used to record and present complex social, economic and po +litical situations. The project duration was 2 years, and was completed in 2001. It is tru +e to say that computer visualisation technology has advanced signific +antly in the intervening time period, and that the production of simi +lar models today would be less time-consuming. It is also worth notin +g that many computer-based modelling packages can either directly or +indirectly store data in connection with &#x2018;objects&#x2019; in t +he space, thus ensuring that models can serve aesthetic, cost control + and project management tasks.</boxed-text>

    Hi satheeshbssb, this seems to be the third time you've asked the same "question" without providing any context, showing what you've attempted, or actually asking a real question. (Table conversion + input & output for TB conv).

    I suggest taking a good look at: How do I post a question effectively?. The more effort you put into asking a question clearly and working towards your own solution (even if it isn't the best approach), the more likely people will be happy to provide assistance. :)

    I would like to help, but I'm afraid I don't really understand what it is you are asking. Is the file you posted the input or output? It would really help us if you gave a better description of your problem, as well as simple examples of what the input to your program will be, and what output you expect. Also, any Perl code you have already tried would be very helpful. Even if it doesn't work, it will still be instructive for us to see what you are trying to do. See How do I post a question effectively? for some hints on how to write an effective question.

    Just to get you started, though, you might want to have a look at CPAN modules such as XML::Simple.

    What about this: Table conversion?

    Perhaps there is a monk in the monastry talking Tamil that can give a personal advice to this seeker. Regards, Karl

    P.S.: And i think he shouldn't be downvoted no more..

    Update: My post is no kidding. Why is it downvoted within just some minutes? Can't you imagine (who ever downvoted my post) that somebody can have a problem to post right if not a native speaker? Please take a look at the seekers profile: satheeshbssb

      The root post doesn't look like it was written by someone who struggles with English. It looks like a post by someone who's careless and can't be bothered even attempting to explain what he wants. If he can't explain by carefully worded sentences, he SHOULD attempt to use examples instead. "I has this: ... I want this: ... I try this: ... Computer writes: ..." is all it takes.

      Enoch was right!
      Enjoy the last years of Rome.

        I'm afraid you're right. I surrender. Thank you and regards, Karl
