Objectives WaterWare is implemented in an open, object-oriented client-server architecture, fully web-enabled and Internet based, supporting the seamless integration of databases, GIS, simulation and oiptimization models, and analytical tools into a common, easy-to-use framework. This includes a multimedia user interface with Internet access (using a standard web browser as the only client software required), a hybrid GIS with hierarchical map layers, object data bases, time series analysis, reporting functions, an embedded expert system for estimation, classification and impact assessment tasks, and a hypermedia help- and explain system.

Real-time data management, simulation and optimization modeling, with data assimilation, forecasting, and reporting, and support for operational management can be provided with a real-time rule-based expert system. Auxiliary tools manage user requirements and stakeholder preference structures.
