Development of National Soil and Groundwater Management and Decision Support System(Ⅱ)
In the past, different divisions of the Soil and Groundwater Remediation Fund Management Board constructed different systems according to individual requirements. Therefore, this project is intended to obtain and compile exchange database system (CDS) and to integrate the different information system. It also promotes the inter-divisional data application.
In order to increase the value of data application, this project develops several application systems for management and decision making. Geographic Information System (GIS) and Multiple Statistical system (MSS) are useful tools to support decision making. The supervisors could access information from Environmental Information System (EIS) during legislative sessions or journalist’s requirements. While the Mobile Detection System (MDS) assists Environmental Protection Bureaus in examining pollution sites or monitoring wells.
This year our point is to construct the systems according to the Phase 1 planning of this project. At this stage, we dedicate to enhance the display of GIS and plan a function that estimates the scope of pollution. It could be as the foundation for preliminary site-specific pollution simulation/evaluation and the ensuing projects.
We have planned a module for 3D computing/display of soil and groundwater pollution based on the integrated results. And then we proceed to R＆D and survey from the perspective of awareness educations or simple pollution sources. We provided a practical example for planning and environmental education purposes. Regarding the MSS, our major work is to assess the feasibility of expanding MSS types and identify overlapped statements generated from the sub-systems and investigated the accuracy of data. Therefore, in order to strengthen the functions we need of the management. To improve the overall data quality and normalize procedures, the MDS added an off-line version and emergency reporting/response capacities. The EIS also expanded in terms of site-specific groundwater statistics, technical updates and access to the routine subsidy approvals.
Besides these application systems development, this year we also assisted the Soil and Groundwater Remediation Fund Management Board to proceed with the business. We maintained, upgraded and strengthened the systems. The aforementioned systems developed and operated to carry out with administrative support, and they implemented according to the existing standard operation procedures.
