The students will be able to:
- Explain the natural and social science foundations of environmental decisions;
- Discuss the role of information systems in decision support in general, and environmental decision making in particular;
- Describe the difference between Environmental Management Information Systems and Environmental Decision Support Systems (EDSS);
- Explain the value of integrating such technologies as geographic information systems, mathematical process modeling, Monte Carlo simulation, linear programming, and expert systems into an EDSS;
- Describe the theoretical foundations of geographical information systems;
- Compare and contrast vector vs. raster encoding of spatial data layers;
- Develop a user-centered design of an EDSS for a specific decision and decision maker.

Environmental Decision Support Systems are computer systems which help humans make environmental management decisions.
They facilitate "Natural Intelligence" by making information available to the human in a form which maximizes the effectiveness of their cognitive decision processes, and they can take a number of forms. EDSSs are focused on specific problems and decision-makers.
This sharp contrast with the general-purpose character of such software systems as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is essential in order to put and keep EDSSs in the hands of real decision-makers who have neither the time nor inclination to master the operational complexities of general-purpose systems.
This course will combine seminars on various topics essential to EDSS design with a practical project in which students will specify the fundamental interaction design and software architecture of a system supporting an environmental decision problem of their choice.
