Abstract

A Geographic Information System (GIS) was tested for potential use as a water resource management tool by application to a ground water study area. Because of the limitations of the particular software chosen and the complexity of water rights, emphasis was placed on constructing conceptual models for managing water right data using GIS technology. Implementation will be possible when tabular water right data is managed on a platform which will integrate with GIS software. A generic method is presented for updating tabular GIS polygon attributes when changes to spatial polygon data are made.
