Foundation for Efficient and Effective Decision-Making on Environmental and Logistical Concerns: The Development of a GIS Database and Web Portal

Approximately 40% of the goods that come into the US come through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Given a dearth of available building sites close to the harbors, the Inland Empire with its cheap, available land has become a major inland global port. The proposed research project would build on the Rohm (Inland Empire Logistics GIS Mapping Project-2008) pilot project. Using the projects findings of 41 cities with its specific information and the identification of a questionnaire, this project will be three fold: 1)It will send the questionnaire to the various warehousing and distribution facilities which will include a follow-up interview to obtain th necessary information,2)The information will be coded into a database which can be accessed by a GIS program, 3)A web portal will be designed and built which will allow for the GIS program to be accessed.
