Health data and GIS web system, which was developed by Caps 2, will be complemented in the aforesaid DSS, which is made by weather radar, satellite sensors, numerical models of hydro-meteorological forecasting and a web platform, in order to exchange data and to strengthen that surveillance of marine and coastal environments.
