Decision Making System
a stand-alone GIS package is not by itself capable neither of solving
problems, nor of providing the correct answer to specific questions.
The specifically developed software, called PROANA was named
after the Greek initials Prototype Analysis Anaglyfou (Terrain),
therefore, was developed within the framework of a Doctorate Thesis
(VASSILOPOULOU, 1999) in the Faculty of Geology of the University of
Athens. The aim of this thesis was to study the recent geodynamic
evolution of the Northern Argolis Peninsula based on terrain analysis
by G.I.S development, and the use of Remote Sensing Data. A large
number of data was compiled and new layers and maps related to the
terrain analysis, as well as a relational database, were produced.
