When planning a project to change your land, one of the most daunting questions is what permits will the work require? This systems uses a formal expert system to link the location of the project on a map, its type and features and its proximity to sensitive resources to generate a comprehensive list of federal and county permits that the work will require. The list includes the reasons why each permit is necessary and links to the permit itself. By using best available data for sensitive resources and jurisdiction boundaries, this online system can answer many difficult environmental resource questions for the project proposer. It also show cases the use of expert systems in delivering high value solutions for the general public that are easy to maintain. The talk will highlight the basic principles and demonstrate a prototype of the system for a subset of permit types in the Puget Sound.
