dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to provide a pragmatic discussion about the role that low-technology GIS can and will play in support of newly emerging water management structures in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee- Flint (ACF) region. As with the water resources planning process itself, states and localities in the ACF basin are at differing stages in GIS decision-support. An important concern arises from this scenario: How can planning institutions just beginning to develop GIS best plan for their future decision support needs? One model for developing GIS capabilities in emerging planning settings is to begin by operationalizing lowtechnology GIS as one among many tools useful for database management and analysis. Geographers and resource economists at Auburn University have developed a PC-based desktop mapping system to analyze the impacts and adjustments to drought in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee- Flint (ACF) River Basin during the 1980-1990 period. This experience provides one example to consider in identifying both the strengths and the limitations of low technology approaches to GIS development.en_US
