U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, 1997 - Computers - 154 pages
Presents the results of a questionnaire that was designed to evaluate existing decision support systems in an ecosystem management context. The questionnaire was distributed to developers of 24 decision support systems in the government, academic, & private sectors. This evaluation is intended to assist current & potential users of decision support systems in determining which existing system most closely fulfills their needs. It is also intended to encourage cooperation among developers of decision support systems to more effectively unify & fulfill these criteria in future systems.
