Abstract

Co.Tr.I.S is a multifunction information system that will be used for the effective design of coastal transportation lines. Co.Tr.I.S incorporates six subsystems (S1-S6) which include models, tools and techniques that may support the design of improved coastal networks. A major contribution expected by Co.Tr.I.S is to support the decision making process of the policy makers and the involved players (Ministry, Maritime companies, Local Authorities), towards an improved Coastal Transport System. In order to support this functionality, Co.Tr.I.S is equipped with subsystems for data retrieval (S1, S2), statistical analysis (S3), data visualization (S4), as well as subsystems with specialized modules for network generation, scenario validation (S5), solution optimization and decision support (S6). All these subsystems can have access to the vast amount of the up-to-date data classified and modeled by Co.Tr.I.S, and therefore, the system user (coastal line designer or decision maker) will benefit from the improved representation and the improved solution proposals offered by Co.Tr.I.S. The aim of this paper is to present the Co.Tr.I.S subsystems with emphasis to subsystems S5 & S6.
