A consultancy was defined to review the current implementation and development of the EIS, which is being set up to support the Cape Peninsula National Park with their management tasks. |
In his mission the Consultant stressed on the appropriate technology application and establishing a system based rather on user-orientation than technology-driven.
The design of the system is already in an advanced stage and makes good progress. The Consultant selected eleven activities for recommendations.
While data compilation is handled professionally, the development of application modules (software development) including user interfaces still needs considerable input.
For the system architecture, it seems to be adequate to upgrade to a higher technology level only, when technology advances and available skill allow so.
