INRDS - Integrated Natural Resource Decision System

INRDS (pronounced IN ROADS) will support planners in making and defending their decisions while simultaneously enabling stakeholders to understand and influence the decision-making process. Planners are currently limited in their ability to:

  • understand and communicate tradeoffs between different alternatives
  • use dramatically increasing volumes of data that are becoming available, or
  • use advanced models.

By providing the necessary information infrastructure in a nonproprietary framework, INRDS will improve the environmental planning process by allowing environmental planning to be started much earlier, be performed for significantly lower cost and use advanced models and data.
