Geographic Information Systems provide an opportunity for water resource planners to examine potential impacts of proposed plans early in the study process. Conflicts can be identified for further study by using a GIS to display and collate information. A GIS has been developed for the Wasatch Front Total Water Management Study in Utah using an existing data base, remote sensing imagery, commercially available geographic data, and unique field gathered data.
