Wong discusses the great threat imposed on certain severalbiological diversities which provokes the need to call for innovative approachand techniques to determine the risk and the damage caused by anthropogenic activities.The extinction of many species recently calls for an insisting appeal on theconcerned stack holders for the protection of risked species and environment.

Theprotection of extinction risked species requires timely, precise and spatiallyrelated information to bring into account the computer based materials to coverthe information required to protect the risked species which can include theirnatural history, distribution, population and threats imposed. The need forsuch system is important as there is no such SDSS used currently (2007) whichcan store information about the risked species that can help protect them andprovide a chance for its population growth.For successful SDSS of this issue the system should bemulti-viable architecture that tends to receive and accepts protocols. Thiswill be treated as next generation of WILDSPACE DSS and it will be based on weband will have servers spread over vast area to provide information about Species,their habitat (Spatially related), the threat imposed to them. The nextGeneration SDSS will have the tractability to collar multi species and multiratio habitat and population queries in order to asses’ likely actions forprotection. 2 Design of its Network and how it will be configured The concerned users (both local and remotely) will needaccess to all the information on servers repeatedly and simultaneously. Theusers will be able to upload updated information, use the existing informationfor analysis through permissions.

The next generation of this SDSS will haveclient server model designed through web server technology. This system will beable to interact between software processes which are executing concurrently. TheNext Generation system will run database which will follow many to onerelationship. Requirements by Client This SDSS (WILDSPACE) will have will be able to support threetypes of clients (Internet, Intranet and Extranet). Intranet will be usedwithin department or within an organisation and will not need externalconnection linking to globe. Intranet will be able to imply new application, scalingefficacy, easy user interface so that requirement for training will beminimized. Extranet will provide access to users from other departments whichwill represent agencies that are in partnership. While external stack holderscan be provided access through internet which can be protected through virtualprivate network.

This client network design will be able to carry out certainseveral processes automatically. The information shared will be highly securedas it will have access to stack holders through extranet.  Requirement for Server The collection of server for this SDSS will consist of webservers, map servers and database servers. The Web Servers will use Hyper Text Mark-upLanguage which will connect to users via web servers.

The second part of serverwill use structured query language to develop database that will provide datarequests through SQL to clients.  The mapserver will be responsible for publishing maps on the web. The maps publishedwill follow the standards of OGC (open GIS consortium). It will provide maps inthe form of Bitmap image.  This next generationof SDSS will have mark-up language that will be extensible which will be usedprominently.The web based application are ofteneasily attacked and WILDSPACE system will have sensitive data which will beprotected by following several security mechanisms.

DBMS DesignThe DBMS design will help understandthe need for recovery of species endangered. The WILDSPACE SDSS will consist oflayers that will join the data where incident occurs, the habitat, population,environmental constraints and type of risk with respect to locational values.The DBMS will be linked with maps. Sites where species are endangered will bemapped and it will be linked with the data non spatial data associated with it throughqueries carried out through SQL. Many to one type of relationship will bebuilt.

Life history data, occurrence location, suitability of habitat throughtime and the monitoring data will be connected to species at risk which willform many to one relationship.     Design of its ApplicationThe application for this SDSS will beable to query data related to explaining and protecting species that are riskedto be endangered. Moreover it will have a powerful tool which will be “ScenarioGaming”. It will provide stack holders
