A series of computer maps display the locational dimensions of attitudes toward water resources, water problems, and water planning in the Minnesota River Basin is presented. Data were obtained from 1,184 responses to two mailed questionnaires sent to citizens throughout the basin in 1971 and 1972. The questionnaires consisted of three parts, a short biographical introduction, a section wherein respondents were asked to rank their most important sources of water information and their most pressing water problem, and a section of 26 statements about water, water problems, and water planning patterned after Likert attitude measuring instruments. Water pollution was regarded as the first priority problem in 10 of the 13 sub-basins.
