Basic Decision Support System for Management of Urban Streams Software Manual
Report No. 2. Part B Software Manual
Dr. John R. Anderson
Centre for Coastal Management Southern Cross University
LWRRDC Occasional Paper 9/99 (Urban Subprogram Report No.2 1999)
The overall aim of this study was to develop a software based classification system for management of urban waterways. A decision support system was required that used biologically important physical attributes to classify the streams and waterways in terms of asset value, capability for rehabilitation or enhancement, physical and environmental condition, and key constraints limiting restoration. This report provides a manual for the software package developed for the project. The software can be obtained from the author. This report describes the software system and its major components. It also provides instructions on how to install the package and operate its major components:
- Data Entry
- Data Editing
- Data Verification
- Data Analysis and Generation of Summary Parameters
- Production of Output as Reports, Maps and Files for transfer to GIS and other packages.
- Decision Support Facilities
A demonstration package that illustrates how the package can be used to manage urban streams is available in a separate report in the same series (Report D)

Current at December 2002
au.riversinfo.org has been developed to facilitate public access to scientific and technical information on Australia's Rivers. Much of this material was paid for using public funds and is therefore owned by the Australian people. Environment Australia have been instrumental in making available all the publications from:
- The National River Health Program
- The Ausrivas Assessment Scheme
The au.riversinfo.org Internet site is in-part supported by the Natural Heritage Trust. The Natural Heritage Trust focuses on five key environmental themes - land, vegetation, rivers, coasts and marine, and biodiversity. The programs of the Natural Heritage Trust play a major role in developing sustainable agriculture and natural resource management, as well as protecting our unique biodiversity through improved management and delivery of resources.
The au.riversinfo.org Internet site is in-part supported by Sydney Airport who have co-funded a Natural Heritage Trust supported project intended to develop Internet based environmental information integration and management systems. This will assist in developing an overall perspective on the demands and uses for environmental resources
