Geographic Information Systems

Here's your chance to contribute to growing knowldege base of pollution 
prevention and Geograpahic Information Systems (GIS).

As we mentioned several weeks ago, we are developing a book of 
case-studies on applied uses of GIS and pollution prevention.  We are 
looking for P2 applications, done at either a city-wide or county-wide 
level, from which others can learn.

If you have successfully used GIS and would like to share your 
experience, or would like more information, please let us know.

Here is a list of what would be helpful in writing about your project:

Statement of Purpose:
What was the goal(s) of your GIS Project?  Who set the goal(s)?

State the Problem:
What was the specific problem, or problems, that the GIS was being called 
on to help solve?

Who were the people involved and what roles did they play?

What data was needed for the project?  Where did you get it?  What data 
did you already have that was used in the analysis?

What software programs, GIS and others, were used in the project?

What hardware was used?  Was the system part of a larger network of 
computers, or a standalone system?

What methods were used to conduct the analysis? What GIS software 
functions were employed?  What specific rules related to the analysis 
impacted the methods used?

How were the results of the GIS analysis communicated to the decision 
makers?  Maps, reports, tables?  Was the information understood and 
incorporated effectively into the decision-making process?

Did it work?  Did the investment in resources pay off?  Did the GIS 
analysis make an important difference?

Thank you for your cooperation.
