Scoping climate database to aid long and short term decision making

Project number: TERRACLIM 2017
Project leader: Southey, T O
The online spatial decision support system (SDSS) for a selected test area in the Western Cape
was created to address the problem highlighted by researchers, consultants and farmers, that
there is a need for easier accessibility to data in the agriculture domain, to aid long and short term
decision making in the context of climate change. As a pilot study, the goal of this project was to test the fundamental workflow and design of an online SDSS, and provide an indication of the feasibility, time and cost for a wider-scale project.
