Georgia Watershed Information System (GWIS) Anonymous | 1.10.2009 | Defined Project (updated on 9.15.2011) | Print Preview
In principle, water quality can be managed through an integrative perspective on watersheds, facilitated by a web-based information system. This project defines a prototype of a web-based Information System for Georgia watersheds called ‘GWIS: Georgia Watershed Information System’.
The principal functionality of the system is to provide a platform for integrating state-wide efforts in environmental information collection, collation, storage, analysis, retrieval, and dissemination to all potential stakeholders. Several data management, modeling, visualization, mapping and resource management tools for watersheds, as well as interfaces for integration across diverse and dispersed data sources, will be included in the system.
