Abstract FLUMAGIS aims at the interdisciplinary development of methods and data processing data processing tools in support of the planning and management of river basins. The focus will be laid on the development of an interactive tool facilitating the evaluation and (3D) visualisation of river basin environments. This comprises the representation of current inshore water and landscape ecological aspects as well as the water balance and substance balances. Editing virtual environments makes it possible to elaborate future planning and management scenarios based on interdisciplinary data and knowledge platform in accordance with the water frame directive (WFD). Possible alternatives and effects of various planning scenarios become transparent, can be discussed and experienced in a participatory process. Furthermore the integration of GIS services, micro- and meso-scale simulation models and the derivation of ontology based measures support the decision finding. The ontologies are developed in co-operation of experts in the domains limnology, landscape ecology, hydraulic engineering, hydrology, geoinformatics and socio-economy. The effects caused by the implementation of proposed measures can be estimated with the help of simulation models. Standards and methodologies are used to enable interoperability of software components.
