Geo-Informationssysteme als Instrument des Ressourcenmanagements für Belange des Boden- und Gewässerschutzes

Geographic Information Systems as an Instrument of Resource Management for the Interests of Soil and Water Conservation

  • Soil and water conservation are cross-sectional assignments. The respective objectives of the individual interest groups cause conflicts of use and lead to different assessments of the soil's potential. Necessary decisions and the practical implementation of soil and water conservation measures require the use of data. These data, which are both spatial and temporal, characterise past, present and, in the case of predictions, also future environmental conditions. The multitude of relevant data necessitates the use of geographic information systems as an instrument for successful resource management. With the use of problem-oriented case studies, it was possible to show that an improved understanding of the system is necessary for both optimisation of the site-specific resource management within the framework of Precision Farming and for the assessment of local to regional conflicts of use with regard to land usage and soil and water conservation. By changing the method, sufficient respective measures regarding documentation, prevention and risk assessment were able to be introduced and implemented. With the objective of practical implementation of a sustainable resource management, the possibilities of short- to long-term initiation of self-organised systems through the networking of available (geo-)information as well as the respective interest groups involved in the conflict of use formed the focal point of this investigation. The creation of networks linking agriculture, water extractors and nature conservation promotes necessary synergies and emergences, due to increased communication. Not the conveyance of knowledge alone, but rather new forms of understanding cause the interest groups involved to change their behaviour, thus facilitating efficient resource management for the interests of soil and water conservation.
