Prospects for Using of Decision Support Systems for Assessment and Control of Technogenic Pressure on the Environment

Keywords: geographical informational models, decision support systems, technogenic load, environment


Purpose. Designing the database concerning level of technogenic load on the environment. Development of the software for database control and zoning Ukrainian area by the techonogenic load. Methods. The GIS free software QGIS is used as main tool for spatial data analysis and designing the digital maps. The secondary tool is Environmental Decision Support Systems software which has been developed by author of the research. The main mathematical algorithms are cluster and factor analysis. Results. The comprehensive approach to multidimensional zoning has been introduced. The integral index of technogenic load on the environment has been defined. The integral index is based on particular indexes which describes technodenic impacts on atmosphere, water and soils. The territory of Ukraine has been zoned by the level of technogenic load on the environment. There has been  calculated comprehensive map of spatial distribution for technogenic load on the environment of Ukraine. There have been designed The digital map database, which describes conditions of the environment of Ukraine, and appropriate database control system. Author has developed the comprehensive software Envoronmental Decision Support systems by utilizing objectice-oriented language C++. The core of the application is geoinrormational models and appropriate mathematical algorithms for spatial data analysis. Conclusions. The areas with high levels of technogenic load on the environment have been outlined. The developed approach and software might be useful for state and local authority institutions control activities which directed to reduction of negative impacts on the environment.
