Beyond GIS The presentation describes the integration of GIS technology with advanced analytical methods and tools such as spatially distributed dynamic simulation models and rule-based expert systems. The underlying paradigm change leads from the inherently static concept of the map as a spatial object to a dynamic concept of functional, interacting objects.

These methods can extend the basic analytical capabilities of the GIS by adding dynamic elements, describing the evolution of systems over time, and in response to changes in the main driving forces. This integration also supports more complex analytical functionality beyond geometric and boolean analysis, described either by nested rules, or complex algorithmic relationships expressed in partial differential equations, that describe change in time and space. Linking models, expert systems and GIS helps building powerful environmental information and decision support systems for integrated coastal zone management.

  GIS based applications Linking models, GIS and expert systems into integrated environmental information and decision support system is the basis for advanced application in coastal zone management. Examples of such application include (1) ranking and benchmarking of complex spatial objects that can describe anything from administrative spatial unit to geomorphologically defined sections, cities, development projects, or any similar functional unit; the organization and comparative analysis of these spatial units is the basis for such application as State-of-the-environment reporting or any specific, topical analysis from fisheries to habitats to endangered species; (2) Site selection for development projects, using multi-attribute theory for matching projects with the properties of potential location; (3) Environmental impact assessment, using a rule-based expert system to explore the possible consequences of development projects; (4) pollution control, and in particular coastal water quality affected by terrestrial sources such as contaminated rivers or sewage outfalls, or accidental spills, such as oil spills from offshore installations or ships.
