Design of integrated forest resource information systems

, : Design of integrated forest resource information systems. Silva Fennica 26(2): 111-122

Managing forests and other natural resources requires merging of data and knowledge from many fields. Research efforts in many countries have simultaneously aimed at computer applications to help managing the large amounts of data involved and the complexities of decision making. This has invariably led to large integrated systems. An integrated system is software that consists of modules for various takss in natural resource management such as data base management, spatial analysis, simulation and optimization, diagnostic reasoning, and communicating with the user. The paper presents an overview of the need, levels, and historical development of integrated systems. Newly emerged technologies, especially object-oriented programming and the X Window System with its associated environment have given new flexibility and transparency to the designs. The client-server architecture is found out as an ideal model for integrated systems. The paper describes an implementation of these ideas, the INFORMS system that supports the information needs of district level forest management planning.
