Abstract: The Land Management System (LMS) is an initiative of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) to address technology requirements related to land and water resource management in both military and civil works mission areas. The purpose of LMS is to provide relevant tools and information to land and water resource managers and decision makers to enhance their ability to understand and communicate past, current, and potential impacts of management decisions. This paper provides details of plans to design, develop, and transition LMS as an integrated computer-based capability for solving specific land and water resource management problems at field sites.
