    Description

    This paper presents an integrated system to support urban natural resource management. With the application of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information systems (GIS), the paper emphasizes the methodology of integrating information technology and a scientific basis to support ecosystem-based management. First, a systematic integration framework is developed and the major functionality of each component is discussed. Next, an integrated urban storm water management system is discussed at an operational scale. Then, an application of RS and GIS with hydrologic modeling to improve storm water management is introduced. The preliminary results have shown that the integrated system has great potential to support urban sustainable development.
