EMDS Consortium hosts first EMDS online user forum

posted Feb 19, 2019, 3:02 PM by Keith Reynolds
The Ecosystem Management Decision Support (EMDS) system is a state-of-the-art application framework
for designing and modeling spatially enabled decision support systems. EMDS supports the
environmental analysis and planning functions at all geographic scales and resolutions.
EMDS offers a wide range of modeling technologies including logic-based reasoning, priority
analysis, decision trees, Bayesian networks and other decision modeling technologies,
fully integrated with the latest geographic information systems (GIS).

This combination provides explicit, practical decision support for both strategic and tactical
planning as well as adaptive management. EMDS is a general purpose, spatially-enabled framework,
and can be applied to an extremely broad array of spatial problems."
On Tuesday, April 16, 2019 we will host the first annual FREE online User Meeting, “EMDS- Going
Forward Forum”.  This forum will feature presentations by:

Steve Paplanus – Mountain View Business Group, LP
Keith Reynolds – US Forest Service 
Bruce Miller – Rules of Thumb, Inc. 
Philip Murphy – InfoHarvest, Inc.
Clive Spenser – Logic Programming Associates, Ltd.
Marek Druzdzel – Bayes Fusion, LLC

The goal of this User Forum is to update users on the latest features in EMDS and discuss future
development directions.  Your inputs are critical to make EMDS a product that can be a key tool in
supporting your business needs.

The event will start at 8:00am USA Pacific Time, 4:00pm GMT. We expect the webinar to run about 2.5
to 3 hours, depending on user submissions.

The Forum will be using Adobe Connect. There is a free download for that, but users without Adobe
Connect will want to join the meeting about 10 minutes early to install the app.

We invite you to participate directly in the Forum by presenting your EMDS application and future
plans for EMDS. To get a spot on the program, or more Forum information, please email, reference 2019 Forum.
