Saving the soil at Puckapunyal

Computer-based land management is helping preserve the environment at the Army's main armoured-vehicle training ground at Puckapunyal, Vic. The CSIRO Division of Water Resources has combined an expert system with those of geographic information systems in what it calls the 'ARX spatial expert system shell'. All but a few particularly sensitive areas of the Puckapunyal Range are now available year-round for training exercises, their condition and accessibility monitored by a land-management advice system which employs ARX.
