Description

GEONAMICA® is a framework developed by RIKS to support the development of integrated spatial decision support systems (ISDSS). This paper firstly presents an outline of the development process of an ISDSS, signalling potential obstacles and emphasising the need for cooperation between the involved parties. Secondly, it gives an explanation of the way in which a framework helps to reduce development costs and improve the quality of the final product, combined with a study of the requirements needed for the framework to be effective. Thirdly, the paper presents an overview of the framework, relating it to existing modelling paradigms. In the conclusion, we review the adherence of the framework to the requirements we set out and give a look into the future.
