A System of Tools for Land and Resource Management
EMDS is a unique solution which implements a framework to support the functions of a spatial decision support system (SDSS). SDSS help decision-makers rationally evaluate strategies or solutions for spatial or geographic problems. These are often complex problems with large datasets, a high degree of uncertainty, and multiple stakeholders with conflicting interests and viewpoints. SDSS use mathematical and logical models to evaluate objective technical or scientific data according to subjective value judgments. SDSS are often used to evaluate, compare, and prioritize scenarios or alternatives.
EMDS is designed to support natural resource and ecosystem management. Classic EMDS workflows uses fuzzy logic to make objective, scientific assessments of the ecosysten and then uses MCDA to subjectively prioritize management scenarios for decision makers.
The next version of EMDS, EMDS 5, will be released February 10, 2015, sporting a host of improvements to the product.
