Summary
Abstract: Solway Firth GDSPDS (Geo-Information Decision Support Processing and
Dissemination System) Database

The Solway Firth GDSPDS information website deals with the GDSPDS
Technology System. GDSPDS stands for a 'Geo-Information Decision
Support Processing and Dissemination System', and is a research
project being undertaken by the Centre for Marine and Coastal Zone
Management (CMCZM) in the Department of Geography and Environment,
University of Aberdeen, to develop an on-line decision support system
(DSS) to aid in Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM).

The project is focusing on the use of remote sensing, geographic
information systems (GIS) and the Internet to deliver information that
coastal zone managers need in order to make their day-to-day decisions
and is using the Solway Firth on the English / Scottish border as a
case study region.
