Database information, geo-natural resource, geographical information systems


The main aim of the project is to develop a new Database Information and Management System (DIMS) which is available and accessible online. Success of any modeling is embedded in using the perfect and adequate length of data. This is vital for studying or developing a scientific model for natural processes such as climate change and geo-hazards. Thus a geo-referenced meteorological, coastal and hydrological database for decision-making and policy formulation according to climate change impact has been developed. The objective of this study is to provide the DIMS that will allow sharing of climate change parameters that has impacted on the coast of selected countries. The methodology has online hosting of database combined with rapid data retrieval for both analytical and modeling functions. The outcome of the Web-GIS based DIMS would serve as a decision-support tool and aids for development of an integrated and sustainable management strategies for climate change and geo-hazards. The project has currently a database relevant to selected stations along the coasts of Malaysia, Singapore and India available on the project webpage www.globalclimate-engine.org. The project could be extended to cover the entire database pertaining to the in-land areas of these regions
