Analysis of the suite of issues confronting the Mekong basin poses information challenges, from the management and analysis of complex data to conveying the results to (non-technical) Decision Makers and a general public. The incorporation of more sophisticated information management systems, from data acquisition, distribution, and visualization into "cyber-infrastructure" could be an important next step. The metaphor is the development of a "Virtual Mekong Basin" (VMB), where basin attributes are examined and summarized digitally and then visually.
