Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Anurag Ohri, Prabhat Singh
Today Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) is one of the major environmental concerns. Existing MSWM tools provide limited assistance to decision makers to find strategies that address their needs. The paper presents a work on a GIS based DSS for MSWM named EDSS-MSWM developed using VB.NET and ArcGIS Engine9.3. The working of EDSS-MSWM has been test checked for MSW data of Varanasi city, India. The developed EDSS-MSWM is expected to be useful for various agencies working in the field of MSWM.
