The focus of this course is on the significance of data and information for management and decision-making of water resources and systems, and on selected tools and techniques, in particular Geographic Information Systems (GIS), to increase availability of decision-supporting environmental information. The students learn to derive decision support from environmental data by the application of GIS-based expert systems and decision support systems, including multi-criteria analysis, and other tools to solve spatial water-related problems within different watersheds. Report writing and overview of other decision support techniques and tools are also included. Further, students will improve skills in communicating environmental information by planning related concepts and report writing.
