Abstract

Groundwater managers, farmers and researchers face challenges regarding the paucity of information and tools for knowledge management. Groundwater problems are characteristically complex and it is not possible to grasp this complexity without the aid of computational analyses. Multiple processes such as groundwater modelling, economic modelling and spatial analyses provide information to address the problems faced by water resources managers. However, because these do not directly address immediate on-ground decision-making needs, there is demand for an easy to use platform to integrate science-based information on groundwater with socio-economic and other physical data and processes. A web-based Decision Support System (DSS) can do this. Web-based DSS are computational systems that use data and models interactively to aid in the formulation, analysis, and selection of management strategies.
