integrated Environmental Impact Assessment as a tool to develop understanding about Sustainable Development

  1. 1. NaturNet Plus Computer Assisted Education for Environment Protection i ntegrated E nvironmental I mpact A ssessment as a tool to develop understanding about Sustainable Development
  2. 2. NaturNet Plus Overview <ul><li>Goal </li></ul><ul><li>Concept </li></ul><ul><li>Used NNR Tools </li></ul><ul><li>Data Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Didactic Design </li></ul><ul><li>Examples </li></ul>
  3. 3. NaturNet Plus Goal <ul><li>Raising of awareness about potential environmental, social and economic impacts  infrastructure development projects </li></ul><ul><li>Learning to select, extract and interpret geographic information </li></ul><ul><li>Learning about the complex interactive nature of the multi-disciplinary components of sustainable development </li></ul>
  4. 4. NaturNet Plus Concept <ul><li>Based on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)  impact rating for ecosystem stability and changes to nature's services </li></ul><ul><li>Decision-makers consider environmental impacts before deciding whether to proceed with new projects </li></ul>
  5. 5. NaturNet Plus Concept <ul><li>NNR goes beyond EIA and introduces a tool that not only looks at the environmental - but also at the economic and social impacts = integrated EIA </li></ul>
  6. 6. NaturNet Plus NNR tools eXe offline lecture editor Thesaurus Catalogue Service Data Management Schockwave 3D UMN Mapserver Mobile device WPS HTML-Web Site SCORM 1.2
  7. 7. NaturNet Plus NNR Tools <ul><li>Creation of lectures with eXe XHTML Editor </li></ul><ul><li>Offline </li></ul><ul><li>designed for non-programmers, user friendly interface </li></ul><ul><li>integration of text, images, flash movies, videos multiple choice test, etc </li></ul><ul><li>integration of NNR tools (as web site) </li></ul>Screen capturing
  8. 8. NaturNet Plus Data Analysis Web Client Application Client Remote Spatial Database WMS / WFS GRASS Server WPS Classification Visibility Analysis Flow Analysis Shortest path Fully featured GIS (ArcGIS) Clip Merge Union Intersect
  9. 9. NaturNet Plus iEIA Introduction The Sustainability Parameters Definition of the parameter, Functions of the parameter, Direct Impacts, Indirect Impacts, Legislation, Current Issues Find and Manage Information Search for Information using MICKA Refine the Search with Thesaurus Data Acquisition/Verification (Mobile Component) Data Management with MapMan Create GIS Projects with MapMan Didactic design 1 2 3
  10. 10. NaturNet Plus Analysis and Assessment Impact rating with the Conflict Matrix Data Visualisation Data Exploring Data Analysis / Processing Information Extraction Assessment of Results Didactic design 4 5
  11. 11. NaturNet Plus <ul><li>Interactive conflict matrices with the same functionality : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The parameters link to additional information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User assigns the level of sensitivity for each parameter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User assigns level of impact for each parameter </li></ul></ul><ul><li>We define in total 3 conflict matrices: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Environmental </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Economic </li></ul></ul>Didactic design
  12. 12. NaturNet Plus Conflict matrix: Environment Didactic design Knockout criterion: high Sensitivity and high Impact is rated !
  13. 13. NaturNet Plus Example Assessing the impact on the Amenity of the Landscape caused by a wind generator with a height of 100 m Used Tool: Map Server & WPS (Visibility Analysis) GIS data: Elevation Data, urban area
  14. 14. NaturNet Plus Impact rating Impact rating in Conflict Matrix
