Description

The issues of rational use of the environmental objects continue to attract public attention world-wide. There are even growing concerns on the part of various stakeholders and general public in relation to the on-going global climate change and a common demand for a harmonized type of relationships between the societal development and the environment crystalized in the concept of environmentally-friendly sustainable development. The interplay of a broad range of fields, such as economics, ecology, psychology, sociology, hydrology and agronomy, makes the area of sustainability inherently complex. Decision-making in the field requires a due support by the sophisticated environmental information systems (EISs). In this paper, we present an approach to the environmental software development on the basis of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The main focus is placed upon the multi-layered architectural logical designs of the EISs and the dynamic or behaviour aspects of an information system being built implementing the tasks of sustainable environmental management as the problems of optimal control or multi-objective optimization.
