This report aims to provide an overview of techniques available for building decision support systems which give access to distributed spatial data sources. The starting point for the discussion is the DEcision Support system for Integrated coastal zone MAnagement (DESIMA) which was developed to demonstrate how decision making could benefit from access to existing data sources.

The DESIMA demonstrator was successful in showing the benefit of the access to and interpretation of distributed data. Therefore it should be developed further into a mature, scalable and robust system.
