a decision support system for environmental management concerning flood water, land use and waste disposal
Parallel computing techniques will be evaluated as the means of supporting the performance requirements of scenario-building activities. The most cost-effective solution will be identified by comparison with other platforms, e.g. workstations.
A set of tools, already on the market or in research prototypes, will be integrated to provide the final prototype applications. End-user application needs will be the main driving force.
Three different case-studies, based on interactions between mathematical models and descriptive databases, will be used to steer the development of the system:
Application prototype specifications have been completed. A seminar has been organised with potential users in order to explain the potential provided by the results of the project and generate early commercial interest.
