GISWaterMap: Drinking Water Mapping with Decision Support System

Julieta B. Babas.

Abstract
Water quality and assessments, being the primordial health need of a person have attracted many researchers across the globe. This study focused on mapping of drinking water thru GIS, and its assessment as a primary input to yield an inhibiting factor to evidence-based decision making. The study will be utilizing the software development method and descriptive research design wherein data collection, data analysis and system development using Design Science Research (DSR) model and integrate GIS tools. Concerned LGU personnel and members of the community households whether owner or recipient of sources of drinking water was surveyed and interviewed to elicit problems and issues. The assessment of the developed system to its extent of compliance to ISO 25010:2011 software quality characteristics will be obtained through a validated 5-point Likert survey questionnaire among 10 IT experts. ISO 25023:2016 was also used to measure the usability acceptance level of the system assessed by the users. Drinking water maps obtained from GIS-based results will be beneficial providing meaningful and reliable information to governing bodies to unveil facts on the status of sources of drinking water as well as to address the necessity of effectively monitoring, managing, and operation in ensuring the quality of water. It will further be adopted by decision-makers to implement strategies and will serve as a decision-support tool akin to health risks for reconsidering surveillance of drinking water resources in Aparri, Cagayan, Philippines towards sustainability.

Key words: drinking water, Decision Support System, Design Science Research, GIS, health risks
