Description

Integrated environmental system assessment and planning requires the application of different methods and software tools in a systematic and consistent workflow, often involving spatial data management, remote sensing and environmental modelling. Moreover, flexible and powerful interfaces are needed to allow for a seamless integration of these tools while avoiding file format and other transfer conflicts. This paper presents the Integrated Land Management System (ILMS) – a modular software platform that is addressing the demands of users involved in land and water resources management. By joining state-of-the-art methods and interfaces mainly based on open-source software modules it covers different aspects of environmental system analysis and management in a step by step, flexible, and user-friendly workflow.
