Decision Support Information Systems for Optimization and Control of Environmental Processes
The Gis Sol (Group of Scientific Interest on Soil), created in 2001, is an inter-ministerial consortium bringing together members from the French Ministries responsible for Agriculture and Environment, the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (Inra), the French Institute for the Environment (Ifen), the French Environment and Energy management Agency (Ademe) and the Research Institute for Development (Ird). It has created a framework for implementing national programmes: several inventory and monitoring programmes on soils are in progress. The Gis Sol has to manage the French Information System on soils and to carry to knowledge information about the environmental indicators on soils for public authorities as well as for the society.
