Several types of data, maps, and figures were obtained from various sources involved in the investigations and monitoring at the site. This information was discretized, and a computerized GIS (Geographical Information System) data base developed. The computerized data processing has assisted in enhancing understanding of the overall problem, identifying data gaps, and defining optimal locations for additional data collection, thus maximizing the usefulness of the data collected. Current hardware and software advancements have enable effective storage, editing, retrieval, and development of graphs and figures.
