The Automated Flood Scenario (Geautomatiseerd Draaiboek Hoogwater (GDH) is an automated substitution for current paper based flood scenario’s. The software is originally developed for river systems and support decision makers in taking operational decisions in extreme situations. - It improves control in flood and calamity situations. - It structures actions and information, showing only the relevant information. - It operates on input-parameters (e.g. waterlevel). The GDH concept has been made applicable for boezem systems (Bijlsma, 2005, Bijlsma et al. 2005). The overall question to the research was which adaptations are required to make GDH river suitable for use in boezem systems. Special attention was focused on the question: What information does the boezem manager need as a minimum to take good decisions?
