In the area of transport design, the book addresses the traffic problems, forest development, rural built-up areas, the open country, and inside towns and villages. The book also discusses the general equipment that go along with tourism. This includes facilities for garbage collection and disposal, rest rooms, refreshment stands, and directional signs. The town of Ennis is used as a case study where the recommendations under the classification of general equipment can be used. For color and materials, the book examines the nature of the Irish landscape and presents the findings into diagrams and graphic terms.
