The water pollution has gradually become the most important issue around all of the world and the water quality problem has been concerned by many countries. In this study, GIS technology is applied to monitor data and WQI is used to analyze and predict the distribution of the water quality in the Puget Sound basin, U.S., which can provide a intuitive visual suggestions as well as offer improvement strategies for water pollution control.
