The application of data mining to environmental monitoring has become crucial for a number of tasks related to emergency management. Over recent years, many tools have been devel- oped for decision support system (DSS) for emergency man- agement. In this Chapter a contribution to data mining as a graphical user interface (GUI) for environmental monitoring system is presented. This interface allows accomplishing (i) data collection and observation, (ii) extraction for data mining and (iii) supporting decision making. We use mathematical models for data analysis and decision making. This tool may be the basis for future development along the line of the Open Source Software paradigm. The work is based on a project contribution, we show our work according to three aspects; data mining, decision support system (DSS), and environmen- tal monitoring system (ENMS). The main contribution of this Chapter is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) as a tool for en- vironmental management applications. This Chapter is with a practical aspect to environmental monitoring systems and the theoretical contributions is according to developing mathemat- ical models for emergency management. We use Matlab for developing the models and all the work has been implemented practically in the proposed project MATLAB GUI for Data Mining and DSS (Project scope).
