ECOSIM is an environmental management information system
that integrates monitoring and simulation modeling
for environmental decision support in urban areas.
The project develops and demonstrates an environmental
decision support system based on a modular and distributed
client-server architecture using wide-area network technology and the
Internet to connect clients, monitoring networks, and high-performance
Traffic generated air pollution including photochemical smog, coastal water
quality, and groundwater are the initial application domains, analysed by
a set of state-of-the-art simulation models with a multi-media user interface.
ECOSIM involves participants from Austria, Germany,
Greece, Italy, Poland, and the UK, and works with the cities of
Berlin, Athens, and Gdanks as validation sites and initial end users.
