Managing Environmental Assessment Methods in Spatial Analysis and Decision Assistance - SADA

A 3-day course in cooperation with the University of Tennessee, USA

SADA is a popular Windows freeware program that incorporates environmental assessment tools for effective problem-solving. The software integrates modules for GIS, visualization, geospatial analysis, statistical analysis, human health and ecological risk assessment, cost/benefit analysis, sampling design, and decision support. We now offer three days of SADA training focused on general use and geospatial analysis, human health and environmental risk assessment.


SADA has evolved into a freeware product targeted at individuals who implement commonly used environmental assessment models in a spatial context. Because of the variety of algorithms incorporated, it is engineered with an open and highly scalable environment that allows additional functionality without increase in complexity. The scalable environment permits it to be used for both application and research goals, especially investigating spatial aspects important for estimating environmental exposures and designing efficient remedial designs. The result is a mature infrastructure with considerable environmental decision support capabilities. SADA applications have extended into many disciplines that emphasize the spatial distribution of data. There are currently has over 15,000 registered users in the database with applications around the world by government agencies, private sector groups, and academia.
