A Decision Support System for Chinese Seadike Safety Management (DSS-CSSM) based on Geographic Information System (GIS) and database technology is initially proposed and designed in this paper. DSS-CSSM contains three major parts, which are fundamental information database, risk analysis module and hazard assessment module. Kinds of numerical and physical model methods can be selected and used in the modules. With integration of the fundamental information, analysis models and appropriate Human Computer Interaction(HCI), DSS-CSSM can be used to help people evaluate hazard losses of Chinese seadike and make some effective decisions.
