Basic Decision Support System for Management of Urban Streams Software Manual
Report No. 2. Part B Software Manual
Dr. John R. Anderson
Centre for Coastal Management Southern Cross University
LWRRDC Occasional Paper 9/99 (Urban Subprogram Report No.2 1999)
The overall aim of this study was to develop a software based classification system for management of urban waterways. A decision support system was required that used biologically important physical attributes to classify the streams and waterways in terms of asset value, capability for rehabilitation or enhancement, physical and environmental condition, and key constraints limiting restoration. This report provides a manual for the software package developed for the project. The software can be obtained from the author. This report describes the software system and its major components. It also provides instructions on how to install the package and operate its major components:
- Data Entry
- Data Editing
- Data Verification
- Data Analysis and Generation of Summary Parameters
- Production of Output as Reports, Maps and Files for transfer to GIS and other packages.
- Decision Support Facilities
A demonstration package that illustrates how the package can be used to manage urban streams is available in a separate report in the same series (Report D)
