Abstract in English:
Within the research EU project BIOCARD - Global Process to Improve Cynara Cardunculus Exploita- tion for Energy Applications, and because of the great interest about energy from biomass, a software tool was de- veloped to manage in Southern Spain the logistics of harvesting and transport of products obtainable from the Cy- nara Cardunculus cultivation. A phase of study and analysis was carried out to collect necessary data around Cadiz, followed by the planning and realization of a set of modules, forming an integrated tool, to optimize the Cynara logistics. GIS software basic functions allow to solve problems related to the geographic morphology, analyzing and processing alphanumeric data, ensuring the output consistency and integrity. This paper describes how a commer- cial software was supplied with a specific tool to evaluate and optimize the logistics and transport cost of biomass pair. The tool allowed the analysis of the logistics of collected biomass, suggesting the position of stocking centres according to local road network and distance from power plants. The tool offers the following modalities of analy- sis: analysis of single stocking centre(s); simulation on stocking centres set(s). The output is both graphical and tex- tual. The SW_Cadiz tool is a simple but important example of GIS potential.
