Feminism, Maps and GIS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Until recently, there was not much connection between feminism and cartography or GIS (geographic information science and/or system) but today they are increasingly intertwined. The meaning and purpose of mapping have significantly changed in recent decades due to several reasons. For example, the mapping process has become computerized, virtually all spatial information is now digital, and GIS has emerged as essential when working with spatial data. At the same time, women have increased their visibility and presence in science and technologies. Feminist scholarship, too, has made a profound impact on social science and geography and has come to inform and influence the fields of cartography and GIS. This article discusses the changing relationship of cartography and GIS and presents major feminist critiques of these fields. After examining the undervalued contribution of women to both cartography and GIS, the article focuses on an ongoing engagement of feminism with GIS and practices of mapping. This engagement includes reclaiming the power of vision, creating a range of feminist cartographies, and the broader impacts of geospatial technologies on women's daily lives.

Geographic information systems (GIS) for geologic mapping  

SciTech Connect

The computer-based Geographic Information System (GIS) is a powerful and versatile tool for preparation of geologic maps. Using GIS different types of geographically oriented information can be displayed on a common base in a flexible format that facilitates examination of relationships between the types of information. In addition, text-based and graphic information (attributes) from separate databases can be attached to points, lines or areas within the different map layers. Although GIS has enormous potential for geologic mapping, it must be used with care. Key considerations when using GIS include realistic representation of the geology, choice of an appropriate scale for the maps, and comparison of the computer-generated maps with field observations to maintain quality control. In building multilayer GIS maps, the data sources must be at a scale appropriate to the intended use. Information derived from diverse sources must be examined carefully to assure that it is valid at the scale of representation required. Examples of GIS products created for one purpose, but potentially misused for a different purpose, include formation contacts (lines) on a regional geologic map scaled up for a facility siting study or well locations on a small-scale location map subsequently contoured for contaminant plume prediction at a very large scale. In using GIS to prepare geologic maps, it is essential to have a clear rationale for the map and use an appropriate scale to depict the various layers of information. The authors of GIS-based geologic maps must be aware that the attractive, polished appearance of their products may tempt some end users to stretch and misinterpret the information displayed.

Spatial indexing of static maps for navigation in online GIS: application for tourism web GIS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become prominent technology, widely adopted in diverse domains. Their online availability through the web and internet technologies has reinforced that. On the other hand, Open Source platforms provide all the instruments necessary to build-up a web solution for a GIS that can be completely used interactively. In this paper, we will introduce the concept of online GIS and the available solutions, especially those which are open source. For the 'Static Map' solution, we propose a new organisation of images, based on the spatial indexes. In order to speed-up the search and to optimise the images' retrieval, we propose a modification of the research algorithm using a proposed selection criterion and navigation modes. Finally, we implemented the organisation through the development of a tourist sites' online GIS of the west region of Algiers, Algeria.

GIS Surface Effects Map Archive, Nevada Test Site, Nevada  

SciTech Connect

The GIS Surface Effects Map Archive contains a comprehensive collection of maps showing the surface effects produced by underground nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site. From 1951 to 1992, scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey and agencies of the U.S. Department of Energy used field and aerial-photo mapping techniques to painstakingly map such surface effects as collapse sinks, craters, cracks, fractures, faults, and pressure ridges. Shortly after each test, a complex surface effects map was produced. Of the more than 920 underground detonations conducted at the Nevada Test Site, 688 were mapped for surface effects. This archive preserves these original maps in digital format. A Geographic Information System (GIS) was used to digitally reproduce each original, hand-drawn surface effects map and to assemble these maps into the digital data sets of this archive. The archive was designed to allow easy access to the maps, while preserving the original maps for perpetuity. Users can query the detonation sites database; prepare, view, and print individual or composite maps; and perform various types of scientific analysis and management tasks. Spatial analyses and queries can be performed on detonation sites and related surface effects in conjunction with other chronological, geographical, geological, or hydrological information via links to external maps and databases. This browser interface provides information about the archive, the history of surface effects mapping at the Nevada Test Site, the methods used to produce the digital surface effects maps, and links to published reports, data tables, and maps. Location maps show testing areas, operational areas, and detonation sites. Demonstration maps illustrate the methods used to produce the digital surface effects maps and exhibit some of the characteristics and uses for these data. Use the links below to view and print individual surface effects maps, retrieve information about the detonations and types of surface effects produced, and to learn about the organization and intended use of the map data contained in the archive.

Road traffic noise mapping in Guangzhou using GIS and GPS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The primary objective of this study is to develop day and night road traffic noise maps for Guangzhou using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). First, as speed-density relation is used to estimate the traffic volume from GPS data collected from floating cars. Meanwhile, the attributes of the roads and buildings are automatically exported from GIS. Second, a single vehicle noise emission model is combined with a noise propagation model to formulate a regional traffic noise calculation model that accounts for the traffic noise attenuation in an urban area. The algorithm is optimized by intelligently dividing the computational grids, filtering the traffic noise sources automatically and performing a quick index of the estimation objects. Finally, the day and night road traffic noise levels in Guangzhou are estimated to create two traffic noise maps. The accuracy of the developed algorithm is validated by conducting a traffic noise monitoring experiment in several districts of Guangzhou with different road types. The results show that the average error between the estimated and measured values is below 2.0 dB.

Mapping the results of mobile network monitoring: a GIS solution  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Most of us are familiar with the 'can you hear me now' commercial - a spectacled technician from a major wireless carrier moves about with a dedicated team testing the voice clarity of the network. Geographic information system (GIS) technology (Foote and Lynch, 2011), together with the use of existing data collection hardware, allows analysts to map results of mobile networks both accurately and efficiently. This paper will detail how geospatial analysis and methodologies were used to address questions related to ideal locations for a cellular network monitoring service, and where such service should be offered to achieve maximum results. Moreover, it explains what qualifies spatially as a quantitative measurable result. Finally, it illustrates how to harness the power of base map and demographic data together with TEMS™ Automatic network monitoring software to evaluate wireless infrastructure.

Distributing proprietary geographic data on the World Wide Web — UCLA GIS Database and Map Server  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) GIS Database and Map Server project is a cooperative effort of GIS-interested-parties on the UCLA campus, to deliver centrally-stored geographic data via the World Wide Web (WWW). Both geographic data and geo-referenced remotely sensed image data are served from this site. The main objective of this project is to serve gigabytes of data using limited online disk space, used to store the most-recently-requested data units, and a large tape robot for the offline storage of all the data in the central database. ArcView Internet Map Server (IMS) is employed as the interactive GIS mapping server and visual interface for downloading the data from the central database. The server design, database design and web client interface were developed to incorporate a visual interface, to distribute proprietary geo-data and to provide GIS capabilities.

Describing dynamic modeling for landscapes with vector map algebra in GIS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A large class of applications that model physical processes use vector fields. This includes landscape processes that are naturally expressed using mathematics for two-dimensional vector fields. Geographical information systems (GIS) are a ubiquitous technology used not only for managing, analyzing and visualizing spatial data for landscapes, but also has the capability to perform landscape analysis and to compose models to address a wide range of problems. This paper proposes ways to extend data models in GIS to allow it to address an even wider range of problems that require the use of vector field representations and analysis operations. The paper describes a vector field data model, which relates well to the field data model commonly implemented in GIS using a raster data type, and demonstrates its application for landscape characterization and hydrological modeling in GIS. The main contribution of this paper is the definition of operations that are consistent with the theory for vector fields and may be implemented to manipulate rasters and multi-component rasters in GIS. The implementation describes a computational environment that supports writing models using primitive operations that are part of a vector map algebra (VMA) and for modeling dynamic changes to mapped landscapes over time.

Groundwater favorability map using GIS multicriteria data analysis on crystalline terrain, Săo Paulo State, Brazil  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Summary This paper presents the groundwater favorability mapping on a fractured terrain in the eastern portion of Săo Paulo State, Brazil. Remote sensing, airborne geophysical data, photogeologic interpretation, geologic and geomorphologic maps and geographic information system (GIS) techniques have been used. The results of cross-tabulation between these maps and well yield data allowed groundwater prospective parameters in a fractured-bedrock aquifer. These prospective parameters are the base for the favorability analysis whose principle is based on the knowledge-driven method. The multicriteria analysis (weighted linear combination) was carried out to give a groundwater favorability map, because the prospective parameters have different weights of importance and different classes of each parameter. The groundwater favorability map was tested by cross-tabulation with new well yield data and spring occurrence. The wells with the highest values of productivity, as well as all the springs occurrence are situated in the excellent and good favorability mapped areas. It shows good coherence between the prospective parameters and the well yield and the importance of GIS techniques for definition of target areas for detail study and wells location.

Communicating environmental health issues using GIS or improving response to citizens with understandable maps and data  

SciTech Connect

People living near a Superfund site are understandably concerned about the effects of hazardous waste releases on the health of their families and themselves. These concerns often turn to anger if the residents believe investigators and public health officials are withholding critical details. In many communities with Superfund sites, residents are demanding detailed information on site investigations and public health assessments, even before such activities are completed. Investigators and public health officials can provide on-going public briefings using a geographic information system (GIS) as part of an interactive public presentation. A GIS is an excellent tool to answer questions about locations of multi-media site investigations and the analytical results because it combines computer mapping and graphics with a database. Rather than incorporate a multitude of slides and overheads into a detailed public presentation that too often never addresses the citizen concerns, a GIS can be used as a query system to answer citizen's questions. The GIS can be incorporated into a laptop or desktop computer for a one-on-one session with a resident or can be plugged into a computer projector to answer questions at public meetings.

Methodologies of preparing erosion features map by using RS and GIS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The erosion features map is one of the basic maps in erosion and sediment studies and watershed management programs. Some methodologies of preparing erosion features map by using RS and GIS were compared in research which took place in the Jajrood sub-basin in north-east Tehran, Iran. In the first phase, four working units' maps were prepared by integration a) plant cover, geology and slope b) land use, geology and slope c) land use, rocks sensitivity to erosion and slope and d) land use, rocks sensitivity to erosion and land units' layers. In addition to these four working units' maps, three more maps were also evaluated in separating erosion features including e) land units f) sensitivity of rocks to erosion and g) image photomorphic units. The efficiency of these seven working units' maps was evaluated by 314 control points. For this purpose, by using erosion features of control points regarding field views, surface, rill, gully and channel erosion maps were prepared and compared by crossing them with working units' maps. Results showed that method “d” was better than “a”, “b” and “c” in providing soil erosion features regarding economic and executive considerations. The accuracy of methods “e” and “f” was 53.0 and 42.9% and their Root Mean Squared Error was more than method “g” and methods “a” to “d”. The coefficient of variation was highest for methods “e” and “f” and the least for method “e” and the greatest precision was related to image interpretation.

A GIS-based extended fuzzy multi-criteria evaluation for landslide susceptibility mapping  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Landslide susceptibility mapping (LSM) is making increasing use of GIS-based spatial analysis in combination with multi-criteria evaluation (MCE) methods. We have developed a new multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) method for LSM and applied it to the Izeh River basin in south-western Iran. Our method is based on fuzzy membership functions (FMFs) derived from GIS analysis. It makes use of nine causal landslide factors identified by local landslide experts. Fuzzy set theory was first integrated with an analytical hierarchy process (AHP) in order to use pairwise comparisons to compare LSM criteria for ranking purposes. \\{FMFs\\} were then applied in order to determine the criteria weights to be used in the development of a landslide susceptibility map. Finally, a landslide inventory database was used to validate the LSM map by comparing it with known landslides within the study area. Results indicated that the integration of fuzzy set theory with AHP produced significantly improved accuracies and a high level of reliability in the resulting landslide susceptibility map. Approximately 53% of known landslides within our study area fell within zones classified as having “very high susceptibility”, with the further 31% falling into zones classified as having “high susceptibility”.

The social construction of a land cover map and its implications for Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as a management tool  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The social construction of a land cover map is explored and the implications of this process for the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as a land management tool are discussed. Different social contexts create different mapping regimes and contribute to different conceptions of area classes. This likely creates challenges for the mapping process, including the consistency and comparability of the final product across time and space. In this study, part of the mapping process for the Norwegian land cover map called AR5 was followed. By seeing map classes as experiential categories, light is shed on the social construction of land cover/use maps. Different administrative units involved in the mapping process have different interpretations of area classes, even if the class definitions are the same. Local administrative units are closely influenced by the realities of local farmers and tend to map land use rather than land cover, even when they are instructed by the national mapping agency to map land cover. Such a difference challenges the comparability and consistency of maps (land cover vs. land use) when they are used in GIS to detect and monitor change. Alternatively, such co-operative map-making can be seen as an opportunity for the sharing and negotiation of power between the different management groups involved.

Noise impact assessment by utilizing noise map and GIS: A case study in the city of Chungju, Republic of Korea  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this study, a scheme to develop a noise map and noise impact assessment method using GIS has been suggested. After developing a road-traffic noise map for the city of Chungju, Republic of Korea, noise impact assessment was performed through analyzing the map. A 3-dimensional terrain model was generated using digital maps and building models were prepared using the information from draft and digital maps. To develop a noise evaluation model, a noise-source map for each road was generated. The noise levels at 25 locations close to roads were measured and compared with the expected noise levels to verify the developed noise map. An excess noise map was generated by comparing the road-traffic noise map with a noise-standard map. Using the excess noise map, the areas exceeding environmental noise standards were effectively evaluated through a GIS space analysis. The 3-dimensional facade noise map was generated to calculate the number of people exposed to a certain noise level.

Solar electricity prospects in Oman using GIS-based solar radiation maps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper discusses solar power prospects in Oman. First, the geographic and topographic information about Oman are presented. The methodology of producing solar radiation maps using GIS tools is then discussed. The results obtained show very high potential of solar radiation over all the lands of Oman during the whole year. A slope analysis has allowed calculating the yearly electricity generation potential for different Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technologies such as the parabolic trough, parabolic dish, tower, and concentrated PV. For instance if only 10% of the land of Oman with a slope less than 1% is considered an exploitable land for the parabolic trough CSP technology, then the total calculated potential of yearly electricity generation would be about 7.6 million GWh, which is many multiples of (680 times) the current generation supply in Oman which was about 11,189 GWh in 2007.

GIS-based soil liquefaction susceptibility map of Mumbai city for earthquake events  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The problem of liquefaction of soil during seismic event is one of the important topics in the field of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. Liquefaction of soil is generally occurs in loose cohesionless saturated soil when pore water pressure increases suddenly due to induced ground motion and shear strength of soil decreases to zero and leading the structure situated above to undergo a large settlement, or failure. The failures took place due to liquefaction induced soil movement spread over few square km area continuously. Hence this is a problem where spatial variation involves and to represent this spatial variation Geographic Information System (GIS) is very useful in decision making about the area subjected to liquefaction. In this paper, GIS software GRAM++ is used to prepare soil liquefaction susceptibility map for entire Mumbai city in India by marking three zones viz. critically liquefiable soil, moderately liquefiable soil and non liquefiable soil. Extensive field borehole test data for groundwater depth, standard penetration test (SPT) blow counts, dry density, wet density and specific gravity, etc. have been collected from different parts of Mumbai. Simplified procedure of Youd et al. (2001) is used for calculation of factor of safety against soil liquefaction potential. Mumbai city and suburban area are formed by reclaiming lands around seven islands since 1865 till current date and still it is progressing in the area such as Navi Mumbai and beyond Borivali to Mira road suburban area. The factors of safety against soil liquefaction were determined for earthquake moment magnitude ranging from Mw = 5.0 to 7.5. It is found that the areas like Borivali, Malad, Dahisar, Bhandup may prone to liquefaction for earthquake moment magnitude ranging from Mw = 5.0 to 7.5. The liquefaction susceptibility maps were created by using GRAM++ by showing the areas where the factor of safety against the soil liquefaction is less than one. Proposed liquefaction susceptibility map of Mumbai city can be used by researchers for earthquake hazard analysis, for the preventive measures in disaster management, for urban planning and further development of Mumbai city and suburban area.

GIS mapping of rice straw residue for bioenergy purpose in a rural area of Assam, India  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Agricultural residues are a promising source of biomass energy. However, agricultural residues are seasonally available and loosely distributed over large geographical areas and hence require spatio-temporal assessment. Satellite image is a handy input for such assessment and high resolution image could increase the preciseness of estimation. In the present study, rice cropland is mapped using high resolution WorldView-2 satellite image in a rural area of Assam, India. The rice cropland map in combination with agricultural statistics is then analyzed in GIS in order to assess rice straw availability for potential bioenergy generation. About 54% land of study area belongs to rice cropland, which can contribute 5360 tonnes surplus rice straw per annum (equivalent to 83,296 GJ). Potential electric power capacity from the surplus rice straw in the study area is 523.50 kW. However, at individual village level the potential varies from 4.45 kW to 28.69 kW. Considering the power crisis in India, the findings of this work are expected to assist policy makers and biomass energy developers in decision making process. Particularly, this paper generated information on village level rice straw residue availability and subsequently potential electric power capacity. Such information is limited in the India expect for few states.

Structure and contents of a new geomorphological GIS database linked to a geomorphological map — With an example from Liden, central Sweden  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents the structure and contents of a standardised geomorphological GIS database that stores comprehensive scientific geomorphological data and constitutes the basis for processing and extracting spatial thematic data. The geodatabase contains spatial information on morphography/morphometry, hydrography, lithology, genesis, processes and age. A unique characteristic of the GIS geodatabase is that it is constructed in parallel with a new comprehensive geomorphological mapping system designed with GIS applications in mind. This close coupling enables easy digitalisation of the information from the geomorphological map into the GIS database for use in both scientific and practical applications. The selected platform, in which the geomorphological vector, raster and tabular data are stored, is the ESRI Personal geodatabase. Additional data such as an image of the original geomorphological map, \\{DEMs\\} or aerial orthographic images are also included in the database. The structure of the geomorphological database presented in this paper is exemplified for a study site around Liden, central Sweden.

Using GIS servers and interactive maps in spectral data sharing and administration: Case study of Ahvaz Spectral Geodatabase Platform (ASGP)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract With emergence of air-borne and space-borne hyperspectral sensors, spectroscopic measurements are gaining more importance in remote sensing. Therefore, the number of available spectral reference data is constantly increasing. This rapid increase often exhibits a poor data management, which leads to ultimate isolation of data on disk storages. Spectral data without precise description of the target, methods, environment, and sampling geometry cannot be used by other researchers. Moreover, existing spectral data (in case it accompanied with good documentation) become virtually invisible or unreachable for researchers. Providing documentation and a data-sharing framework for spectral data, in which researchers are able to search for or share spectral data and documentation, would definitely improve the data lifetime. Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) are main candidates for spectral data management and their efficiency is proven by many studies and applications to date. In this study, a new approach to spectral data administration is presented based on spatial identity of spectral samples. This method benefits from scalability and performance of RDBMS for storage of spectral data, but uses GIS servers to provide users with interactive maps as an interface to the system. The spectral files, photographs and descriptive data are considered as belongings of a geospatial object. A spectral processing unit is responsible for evaluation of metadata quality and performing routine spectral processing tasks for newly-added data. As a result, by using internet browser software the users would be able to visually examine availability of data and/or search for data based on descriptive attributes associated to it. The proposed system is scalable and besides giving the users good sense of what data are available in the database, it facilitates participation of spectral reference data in producing geoinformation.

A first global and spatially explicit emergy database of rivers and streams based on high-resolution GIS-maps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In emergy evaluation (EME), water is often identified as the main renewable resource input of a natural or human system. Water flows in EME have been generally examined with a global perspective, i.e. without considering topographical and climatic differences at regional or local scales. Hence, spatial differentiation in water flows characterization is essential to improve the quality of EME results. This paper introduces the first global, spatially explicit emergy dataset of freshwater flows, developed following the rationale found in prior \\{EMEs\\} of rivers. The unit emergy value (UEV) of a stream was calculated as the highest value between rain chemical potential emergy and rain geopotential emergy over the stream's catchment area, divided by the stream flow rate. This approach was applied with a high resolution and a global coverage, using Geographic Information System (GIS) software and, notably, world maps of precipitation, evapotranspiration and elevation, to estimate accumulation patterns of rainfall emergy value and flow rates. Preliminary results are compared with available data on river's \\{UEVs\\} retrieved from previous studies and with the actual stream flow of major rivers in the world and in France. While flow rates modeled in the database show important differences as compared to actual data, the comparison of the modeled emergy value of rivers with prior studies was made difficult by the heterogeneity in calculation details observed previously. Therefore, it is highly recommended for the emergy community to foster the use and improvement of such high-resolution, spatially explicit dataset instead of using regional or global UEV averages, which should only be used when reliable local values are not available. Hence, territorial averages were computed in order to characterize background processes in the hybrid lifecycle-emergy accounting framework, as this approach can complement and enrich the conventional EME with the inclusion of detailed information on supply chain processes. To this aim, data were aggregated over major watersheds and administrative regions, and weighted with a proxy for urban surface water consumption. The next steps identified to enhance our prospective work include: (1) the characterization of water reservoirs (glaciers, lakes, groundwater, soil moisture), (2) the improvement of runoff modeling and stream flows, (3) the spatial assessment of atmospheric processes to refine transformities of rain (chemical potential and geopotential), and (4) the inclusion of additional elements such as sediments, minerals and particulate matter as a flow of emergy in rivers.

The 2012 free and open source GIS software map – A guide to facilitate research, development, and adoption  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Over the last decade an increasing number of free and open source software projects have been founded that concentrate on developing several types of software for geographic data collection, storage, analysis and visualization. We first identify the drivers of such software projects and identify different types of geographic information software, e.g. desktop GIS, remote sensing software, server GIS etc. We then list the major projects for each software category. Afterwards we discuss the points that should be considered if free and open source software is to be selected for use in business and research, such as software functionality, license types and their restrictions, developer and user community characteristics, etc. Finally possible future developments are addressed.

Integrating GIS and FEATHERS: A Conceptual Design  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This study proposes integrating GIS and FEATHERS in order to improve the capability of data management, spatial analysis and visualization in the model framework. GIS provides geodatabase for effectively storing and edit (non-)spatial data, useful functions of spatial analysis for defining spatial interactions between phenomena simulated by the modeling system, and interactive visualization tools. Thus, this study mainly focuses on three topics: i) why FEATHERS needs a GIS module, ii) how the GIS module is designed, and iii) what functions can be supported by the GIS module in the FEATHERS system. Moreover, we overview some transportation software adopting GIS to catch up a general trend in GIS and transportation and also suggest data schema for creating geodatabase and a source code for making map layers and map tools in python. At the end, we conclude this paper with summary and plan for the future work.

Mosquito larval habitat mapping using remote sensing and GIS: Implications of coalbed methane development and West Nile virus  

SciTech Connect

Potential larval habitats of the mosquito Culex tarsalis (Coquillett), implicated as a primary vector of West Nile virus in Wyoming, were identified using integrated remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) analyses. The study area is in the Powder River Basin of north central Wyoming, an area that has been undergoing a significant increase in coalbed methane gas extractions since the late 1990s. Large volumes of water are discharged, impounded, and released during the extraction of methane gas, creating aquatic habitats that have the potential to support immature mosquito development. Landsat TM and ETM + data were initially classified into spectrally distinct water and vegetation classes, which were in turn used to identify suitable larval habitat sites. This initial habitat classification was refined using knowledge-based GIS techniques requiring spatial data layers for topography, streams, and soils to reduce the potential for overestimation of habitat. Accuracy assessment was carried out using field data and high-resolution aerial photography commensurate with one of the Landsat images. The classifier can identify likely habitat for ponds larger than 0.8 ha (2 acres) with generally satisfactory results (72.1%) with a lower detection limit of approximate to 0.4 ha (1 acre). Results show a 75% increase in potential larval habitats from 1999 to 2004 in the study area, primarily because of the large increase in small coalbed methane water discharge ponds. These results may facilitate mosquito abatement programs in the Powder River Basin with the potential for application throughout the state and region.

The preparation of landslide map by Landslide Numerical Risk Factor (LNRF) model and Geographic Information System (GIS)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract One of the risks to threaten mountainous areas is that hillslope instability caused damage to lands. One of the most dangerous instabilities is mass movement and much movement occurs due to slip. The aim of this study is zonation of landslide hazards in a basin of the Ardebil province, the eastern slopes of Sabalan, Iran. Geological and geomorphologic conditions, climate and type of land use have caused susceptibility of this watershed to landslides. Firstly, maps of the main factors affecting landslide occurrence including slope, distance from faults, lithology, elevation and precipitation were prepared and digitized. Then, by using interpretation of aerial photos and satellite images and field views, the ground truth map of landslides was prepared. Each basic layer (factor) and landslide map were integrated to compute the numeric value of each factor with the help of a Landslide Numerical Risk Factor (LNRF) model and landslide occurrence percent obtained in different units from each of the maps. Finally, with overlapping different data layers, a landslide hazard zonation map was prepared. Results showed that 67.85% of the basin has high instability, 7.76% moderate instability and 24.39% low instability.

GIS INTERNET MAP SERVICE FOR DISPLAYING SELENIUM CONTAMINATION DATA IN THE SOUTHEASTERN IDAHO PHOSPHATE MINING RESOURCE AREA  

SciTech Connect

Selenium is present in waste rock/overburden that is removed during phosphate mining in southeastern Idaho. Waste rock piles or rock used during reclamation can be a source of selenium (and other metals) to streams and vegetation. Some instances (in 1996) of selenium toxicity in grazing sheep and horses caused public health and environmental concerns, leading to Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) involvement. The Selenium Information System Project is a collaboration among the DEQ, the United States Forest Service (USFS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Idaho Mining Association (IMA), Idaho State University (ISU), and the Idaho National Laboratory (INL)2. The Selenium Information System is a centralized data repository for southeastern Idaho selenium data. The data repository combines information that was previously in numerous agency, mining company, and consultants’ databases and web sites. These data include selenium concentrations in soil, water, sediment, vegetation and other environmental media, as well as comprehensive mine information. The Idaho DEQ spearheaded a selenium area-wide investigation through voluntary agreements with the mining companies and interagency participants. The Selenium Information System contains the results of that area-wide investigation, and many other background documents. As studies are conducted and remedial action decisions are made the resulting data and documentation will be stored within the information system. Potential users of the information system are agency officials, students, lawmakers, mining company personnel, teachers, researchers, and the general public. The system, available from a central website, consists of a database that contains the area-wide sampling information and an ESRI ArcIMS map server. The user can easily acquire information pertaining to the area-wide study as well as the final area-wide report. Future work on this project includes creating custom tools to increase the simplicity of the website and increasing the amount of information available from site-specific studies at 15 mines.

Geographic information systems (GIS) for participation: the future of environmental GIS?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The conventional uses of geographic information systems (GIS) in environmental management have been criticized for being undemocratic and avoiding the social dimension of these issues. To address these criticisms, new participatory approaches are being developed by the GIS community. These new techniques involve the integration of conventional spatial data and mental maps showing communities' (or various groups') perceptions of their environment and how they use resources. Case studies using these new techniques highlight how GIS is being incorporated into participatory studies. The advantages and drawbacks of using GIS for participation are discussed, with the conclusion that the techniques provide a useful new approach for environmental management.

Improving exploration with geographical information system (GIS) technology  

SciTech Connect

Timely reliable access to data is required by Earth Scientists and Engineers evaluating geology, facilities, environment, and new business opportunities. Geographical Information System (GIS) technology has been recently implemented to provide efficient and comprehensive access to data for exploration work in Venezuela. The GIS allows rapid comparisons, queries, sorting, and evaluation of data that in the past required multiple hardware platforms, multiple software packages, paper plots, spreadsheets, and time. A vendor GIS database package formed the foundation. This GIS provided regional coverage for the entire country of Venezuela at a scale of 1:250,000. It included 36,000 wells and associated attributes, facilities, geologic maps, potential field data, and transportation networks. Essential with GIS, all of the data were transformed from multiple cartographic datums to a single map projection. Proprietary and other tabular databases were incorporated into the vendor GIS by Chevron, significantly upgrading the value of the system for company exploration. Tabular databases were either imported, linked or converted to the GIS. They included Nomad, Paradox, Oracle, Openworks, and PC-based spreadsheets containing wells, seismic, and geochemistry data. Nontabular data types incorporated into the GIS included digital outcrop log and paleosections, maps, other GIS data, Global Positioning System control points, satellite imagery and scanned photographs. The enhanced GIS has proven valuable for facilitating access to, and rapid and accurate evaluation of, large geographic areas with multiple data sources and types.

Development of a GIS as an analytical tool for instream flow determinations: Two case studies  

SciTech Connect

While many standard applications of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software involve production of maps and overlays useful for planning and resource management, it also offers powerful analytical capabilities. These attributes of GIS can be useful in impact assessment, mitigation planning, and resource enhancement associated with the relicensing of hydroelectric projects. This paper describes two such applications where GIS was integrated into instream flow investigations. The first involves the application of GIS mapping techniques to develop functional relationships between streamflow and foraging habitat for bald eagles. In the second application, GIS is used to evaluate boating suitability at critical passage areas under different river flows.

Remote sensing and GIS analysis for mapping spatio-temporal changes of erosion and deposition of two Mediterranean river deltas: The case of the Axios and Aliakmonas rivers, Greece  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Wetlands are among Earth's most dynamic, diverse and varied habitats as the balance between land and water surfaces provide shelter to a unique mixture of plant and animal species. This study explores the changes in two Mediterranean wetland delta environments formed by the Axios and Aliakmonas rivers located in Greece, over a 25-year period (1984–2009). Direct photo-interpretation of four Landsat TM images acquired during the study period was performed. Furthermore, a sophisticated, semi-automatic image classification method based on support vector machines (SVMs) was developed to streamline the mapping process. Deposition and erosion magnitudes at different temporal scales during the study period were quantified using both approaches based on coastline surface area changes. Analysis using both methods was conducted in a geographical information systems (GIS) environment. Direct photo-interpretation, which formed our reference dataset, showed noticeable changes in the coastline deltas of both study areas, with erosion occurring mostly in the earlier periods (1990–2003) in both river deltas followed by deposition in more recent years (2003–2009), but at different magnitudes. Spatial patterns of coastline changes predicted from the \\{SVMs\\} showed similar trends. In absolute terms \\{SVMs\\} predictions of sediment erosion and deposition in the studied area were different in the order of 5–20% in comparison to photo-interpretation, evidencing the potential capability of this method in coastline changes monitoring. One of the main contributions of our work lies to the use of the \\{SVMs\\} classifier in coastal mapping of changes, since to our knowledge use of this technique has been under-explored in this application domain. Furthermore, this study provides important contribution to the understanding of Mediterranean river delta dynamics and their behaviours, and corroborates the usefulness of EO technology and GIS as an effective tool in policy decision making and successful landscape management. The latter is of considerable scientific and practical value to the wider community of interested users, given the continued open access to observations from this satellite radiometer globally.

Applications of GIS in mineral extraction and hazardous waste planning  

SciTech Connect

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are powerful application tools for mining, mine permitting, and mine reclamation. A GIS is a computer based system which can capture, store, edit, manipulate, integrate and display on a map multiple {open_quotes}layers{close_quotes} of data as geographic reference material. With GIS, both mine maps and large numbers of spatially related data files can be kept continuously updated. The interactive capabilities of different mapped and filed information create new capabilities for environmental management at mine sites. Information required for mine feasibility assessments and environmental impact studies can be stored and manipulated in both tabular and map formats. Land ownership, land use, soils and vegetation can be stored separately and output in any combination of overlays. Topography, geology, hydrology, overburden thickness and piezometric surface elevations can be added to the data base and mapped.

Pre-industrial charcoal production in Lower Lusatia (Brandenburg, Germany): Detection and evaluation of a large charcoal-burning field by combining archaeological studies, GIS-based analyses of shaded-relief maps and dendrochronological age determination  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In pre-industrial times, charcoal burning was a common source of energy across Europe. Charcoal production and its related consequences for the upland environment are well known due to historical and palaeoenvironmental research. In recent years, awareness has grown regarding the use of woods in the lowlands for charcoal production. In the last 20 years, a large charcoal-burning field in Lower Lusatia (Brandenburg, North German Lowlands) was discovered by systematic archaeological excavations of the opencast mine of Jänschwalde. However, the excavations are limited to the mine, which only covers a portion of the Jänschwalder Heide and the surrounding forests. In this paper, we present the results of our study regarding the spatial extension and timing of charcoal production in the Jänschwalder Heide and its surrounding areas. We applied a combined approach using archaeological research results, GIS-analyses of shaded-relief maps (SRMs) and tree-ring dating of selected charcoal kiln remains. Approximately 900 excavated charcoal kiln ground plans were analysed, which provided a solid data basis for our GIS analyses. For an extensive evaluation, we enlarged our study area beyond the limits of the lignite mine. We identified and digitised the remains of the charcoal kilns by creating \\{SRMs\\} from digital elevation models (DEMs) that were based on high-resolution airborne laser scanning data (ALS). The data from the excavated and digitised charcoal kiln remains were analysed in terms of their sizes and spatial distributions. In addition, the dendrochronological ages of 16 selected charcoal kiln remains were determined. This study shows that charcoal production was more extensive than initially proven by archaeological excavations. The remains of more than 5000 charcoal kilns were detected on the \\{SRMs\\} across an area that was twice as large as the excavated charcoal-burning field. In the Jänschwalder Heide, considerably more charcoal kiln relicts exist compared with the surrounding communal areas. Furthermore, the charcoal kiln remains in the Jänschwalder Heide have larger diameters, suggesting large-scale charcoal production for supplying energy to the nearby ironworks at Peitz. However, the charcoal production on the communal land was most likely for local crafts. The ages of the charcoal kiln remains indicated that charcoal production occurred between the 17th and 19th centuries, corresponding with the main period of charcoal burning. Overall, our study suggested that charcoal production sites are underestimated in the modern landscapes of the North German Lowlands.

PV Analyst: Coupling ArcGIS with TRNSYS to assess distributed photovoltaic potential in urban areas  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study presents a means to extend the functionality of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in assessing distributed photovoltaic (PV) potential in urban areas, via the new ArcGIS extension: PV Analyst. A methodology is proposed for coupling ArcGIS with TRNSYS that enables the PV Analyst extension to use the capabilities of 4 and 5-parameter PV array performance models and the irradiance components in TRNSYS for solar energy simulations in geospatial contexts. Because PV Analyst is embedded within the ArcMap environment, part of ArcGIS software package, the strong capabilities of ArcGIS and other ArcGIS extensions such as 3D Analyst, Spatial Analyst and Tracking Analyst can be fully utilized with PV Analyst’s functionalities. This paper describes the concept and details of the extension development, as well as its application to the Pollock Commons area at the Pennsylvania State University.

Integrating GIS and GPS in environmental remediation oversight  

SciTech Connect

This paper presents findings on Ohio EPA Office of Federal Facilities Oversight`s (OFFO) use of GIS and GPS for environmental remediation oversight at the U.S. Department of Energy`s (DOE) Fernald Site. The Fernald site is a former uranium metal production facility within DOE`s nuclear weapons complex. Significant uranium contamination of soil and groundwater is being remediated under state and federal regulations. OFFO uses GIS/GPS to enhance environmental monitoring and remediation oversight. These technologies are utilized within OFFO`s environmental monitoring program for sample location and parameter selection, data interpretation and presentation. GPS is used to integrate sample data into OFFO`s GIS and for permanently linking precise and accurate geographic data to samples and waste units. It is important to identify contamination geographically as all visual references (e.g., buildings, infrastructure) will be removed during remediation. Availability of the GIS allows OFFO to perform independent analysis and review of DOE contractor generated data, models, maps, and designs. This ability helps alleviate concerns associated with {open_quotes}black box{close_quotes} models and data interpretation. OFFO`s independent analysis has increased regulatory confidence and the efficiency of design reviews. GIS/GPS technology allows OFFO to record and present complex data in a visual format aiding in stakeholder education and awareness. Presented are OFFO`s achievements within the aforementioned activities and some reasons learned in implementing the GIS/GPS program. OFFO`s two years of GIS/GPS development have resulted in numerous lessons learned and ideas for increasing effectiveness through the use of GIS/GPS.

GIS for Nevada railroads: 1993 report  

SciTech Connect

This is an interim report on a task within a large, ongoing study by the University of Nevada, Reno to examine the safety of Nevada railroads. The overall goal, of which this year`s research is a middle stage, is to develop models based on the use of geographic information systems (GIS). These models are to enable the selection of the best and safest railway routes for the transport of high-level nuclear waste across Nevada to the proposed repository at Yucca Mountain. Last year`s research concluded that the databases are adequate and that GIS are feasible and desirable for displaying the multi-layered data required to reach decisions about safety. It developed several database layers. This report deals with work during 1993 on the use of geographic information systems (GIS) for rail-route selection. The goal was to identify and assemble many of the databases necessary for the models. In particular, the research aimed to identify (a) any problems with developing database layers; and (b) the level of effort required. This year`s effort developed database layers for two Nevada counties: Clark and Lincoln. The layers dealt with: topographic information, geologic information, and land ownership. These are among the most important database layers. The database layers were successfully created. No significant problems arose in developing them. The level of effort did not exceed the expected level. The most effective approach is by means of digital, shaded relief maps. (Sample maps appear in plates.) Therefore, future database development will be straightforward. Research may proceed on the full development of shaded relief elevation maps for Elko, White Pine, Nye and Eureka counties and with actual modeling for the selection of a route or routes between the UP/SP line in northern Nevada and Yucca Mountain.

A GIS approach for predicting prehistoric site locations.  

SciTech Connect

Use of geographic information system (GIS)-based predictive mapping to locate areas of high potential for prehistoric archaeological sites is becoming increasingly popular among archaeologists. Knowledge of the environmental variables influencing activities of original inhabitants is used to produce GIS layers representing the spatial distribution of those variables. The GIS layers are then analyzed to identify locations where combinations of environmental variables match patterns observed at known prehistoric sites. Presented are the results of a study to locate high-potential areas for prehistoric sites in a largely unsurveyed area of 39,000 acres in the Upper Chesapeake Bay region, including details of the analysis process. The project used environmental data from over 500 known sites in other parts of the region and the results corresponded well with known sites in the study area.

Transforming on-grid renewable energy markets. A review of UNDP-GEF support for feed-in tariffs and related price and market-access instruments  

SciTech Connect

As a Global Environment Facility (GEF) founding implementing agency, UNDP has worked on over 230 GEF-supported clean energy projects in close to 100 developing countries since 1992. About 100 of these projects in 80 countries have focused on renewable energy, supported by approximately US $ 293 million in GEF funds and leveraging US $1.48 billion in associated co-financing from national governments, international organizations, the private sector and non-governmental organizations. As part of UNDP efforts to codify and share lessons learnt from these initiatives, this report addresses how scarce public resources can be used to catalyze larger private financial flows for renewable energy. It provides an overview of UNDP-GEF’s extensive work supporting development of national renewable energy policies such as feed-in tariffs. In these activities UNDP-GEF assists developing countries to assess key risks and barriers to technology diffusion and then to identify a mix of policy and financial de-risking measures to remove these barriers and drive investment. This approach is illustrated through three case studies in Uruguay, Mauritius and Kazakhstan. This report is complemented by a companion publication presenting an innovative UNDP financial modeling tool to assist policymakers in appraising different public instruments to promote clean energy.

Activated RhoA Binds to the Pleckstrin Homology (PH) Domain of PDZ-RhoGEF, a Potential Site for Autoregulation  

SciTech Connect

Guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) catalyze exchange of GDP for GTP by stabilizing the nucleotide-free state of the small GTPases through their Dbl homology/pleckstrin homology (DH {center_dot} PH) domains. Unconventionally, PDZ-RhoGEF (PRG), a member of the RGS-RhoGEFs, binds tightly to both nucleotide-free and activated RhoA (RhoA {center_dot} GTP). We have characterized the interaction between PRG and activated RhoA and determined the structure of the PRG-DH {center_dot} PH-RhoA {center_dot} GTP{gamma}S (guanosine 5{prime}-O-[{gamma}-thio]triphosphate) complex. The interface bears striking similarity to a GTPase-effector interface and involves the switch regions in RhoA and a hydrophobic patch in PRG-PH that is conserved among all Lbc RhoGEFs. The two surfaces that bind activated and nucleotide-free RhoA on PRG-DH {center_dot} PH do not overlap, and a ternary complex of PRG-DH {center_dot} PH bound to both forms of RhoA can be isolated by size-exclusion chromatography. This novel interaction between activated RhoA and PH could play a key role in regulation of RhoGEF activity in vivo.

Creating a geographic information system (GIS)-based inventory of coal for West Virginia  

SciTech Connect

The goal of the Coal Bed Mapping Project at the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey is to produce an accurate Geographic Information System (GIS)-based inventory of the coal beds of West Virginia. GIS computer technology provides new and powerful ways to create, display, and analyze coal information. Geologists are creating maps depicting various aspects of West Virginia coal beds using a system of networked PCs and engineering workstations, coupled with manual map-making methods. The maps created for each coal bed and converted to GIS {open_quotes}layers{close_quotes} or coverages, include: a structural model, the outcrop, the areas mined by surface, auger, and underground methods, coal isopach, and locations of samples taken for chemical analysis. Mapping is organized around the 7.5-minute quadrangles. Once significant numbers of contiguous quadrangles are mapped, GIS gives the users flexibility to view the information in different combinations of coverages, for any desired geographic window, at any scale. Coverages are designed to take advantage of the analytical capabilities inherent in GIS technology. The coal bed coverages will have significant value to West Virginia and its citizens. Potential uses include a compliance tool for the mineral lands tax program, coal resource estimates, abandoned mine lands risk assessment and amelioration such as mine subsidence, planning and development, and mine permitting.

An integrated multi-software approach to the creation of a coal resources GIS  

SciTech Connect

The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey is currently involved in generating coal resource layers for a statewide Mineral Lands Mapping Program, the first step in a statewide Geographical Information System (GIS). The products to be generated from this project include GIS layers of coal bed thicknesses, elevation, outcrops, and mined-out areas for each minable coal. Traditional methods of strip-logging, correlation, data extraction, map compilation, and digitizing were inadequate to meet the time-sensitive project requirements. Various PC and UNIX workstation software tools were selected to most efficiently perform specific tasks within the project. For example, one PC-based software allows rapid on-screen correlation of stratigraphic data. Structure maps are produced from a different PC software that simultaneously maps multiple coals using isochores, ensuring that structure lines do not cross. This is vital since some areas of West Virginia contain 14 or more stratigraphically close minable coal beds, and the data for each bed has differing densities and distributions. Database management and isopach map generation are performed on UNIX workstations. A combination of PC and UNIX-based GISs are used for compiling mined area maps for each coal bed. The final integration and analysis are performed in a GIS on a 64-bit workstation with sufficient power and addressing capability for statewide GIS coverages. One of the most challenging aspects of this project is the creation of seamless interfaces between the various software and hardware platforms.

Upgrading remote sensing with GIS technology in support of petroleum operations  

SciTech Connect

Remote sensing data (including satellite and airborne) that are integrated with CAD and GPS have been successfully employed to improve understanding and mapping of geology, logistics, environment, and facilities. Methods developed over the years have provided the industry with reliable and cost-effective hardcopy and digital products. However, even when the data collected by remote sensing, CAD, and GPS are spatially co-registered and integrated into a high performance workstation, users have been unable to query, model or interactively link to spreadsheets (tabular data) that can contain important attribute information about features seen on the images and maps. This information gap is being rapidly overcome by integrating images, CAD maps, and tabular data with Geographical Information System (GIS) technology. An end result is greater appreciation and broader application of remote sensing by managers and workers in the petroleum industry. A major obstacle to establishing GIS for an overseas operation is the initial cost of data collection and conversion from legacy database management systems and hardcopy to appropriate digital format. GIS applications include using remote sensing images as the basis for documenting changes through time, linking to GPS to improve navigation in the field, verifying well locations and querying/updating well databases, planning facilities, and creating maps of features interpreted from the imagery. The integration of remote sensing, GPS, and now GIS is essential for planning operations in areas where maps are either out-of-date or unavailable.

TITIM GIS-tool: A GIS-based decision support system for measuring the territorial impact of transport infrastructures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract To achieve sustainability in the area of transport we need to view the decision-making process as a whole and consider all the most important socio-economic and environmental aspects involved. Improvements in transport infrastructures have a positive impact on regional development and significant repercussions on the economy, as well as affecting a large number of ecological processes. This article presents a DSS to assess the territorial effects of new linear transport infrastructures based on the use of GIS. The TITIM – Transport Infrastructure Territorial Impact Measurement – GIS tool allows these effects to be calculated by evaluating the improvement in accessibility, loss of landscape connectivity, and the impact on other local territorial variables such as landscape quality, biodiversity and land-use quality. The TITIM GIS tool assesses these variables automatically, simply by entering the required inputs, and thus avoiding the manual reiteration and execution of these multiple processes. TITIM allows researchers to use their own GIS databases as inputs, in contrast with other tools that use official or predefined maps. The TITIM GIS-tool is tested by application to six HSR projects in the Spanish Strategic Transport and Infrastructure Plan 2005–2020 (PEIT). The tool creates all 65 possible combinations of these projects, which will be the real test scenarios. For each one, the tool calculates the accessibility improvement, the landscape connectivity loss, and the impact on the landscape, biodiversity and land-use quality. The results reveal which of the HSR projects causes the greatest benefit to the transport system, any potential synergies that exist, and help define a priority for implementing the infrastructures in the plan.

GIS DRASTIC model for groundwater vulnerability estimation of Astaneh-Kouchesfahan Plain, Northern Iran  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this study, the groundwater vulnerability to pollution was evaluated for Astaneh-Kouchesfahan Plain, Northern Iran using GIS DRASTIC model. Based upon available data, six thematic maps were generated and intrinsic vulnerability map was developed based upon calculations from various mapped layers and DRASTIC index. The results show that low, moderate, high and very high groundwater vulnerability risk zones cover around 12, 52, 28 and 8% of the area, respectively. Finally, in order to verify the model, the categorised DRASTIC map was compared with a categorized TDS map and the results shows that the areas including enhanced values of TDS correspond with those with higher DRASTIC ratings.

Creating a coal bed Geographic Information System (GIS) for West Virginia  

SciTech Connect

The goal of the Coal Bed Mapping Project at the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey is to produce an accurate Geographic Information System (GIS)-based inventory of the coal beds of West Virginia. GIS computer technology provides new and powerful ways to create, display, and analyze coal information. Geologists are creating maps depicting various aspects of West Virginia coal beds using a system of networked PCs and engineering layers or coverages, include: a structural model, the outcrop, the areas mined by surface, auger, and underground methods, coal isopach, and locations of samples taken for chemical analysis. Mapping is organized around the 7.5-minute quadrangles. Once significant numbers of contiguous quadrangles are mapped, GIS gives the users flexibility to view the information in different combinations of coverages, for any desired geographic window, at any scale. Coverages are designed to take advantage of the analytical capabilities inherent in GIS technology. The coal bed coverages will have significant value to West Virginia and its citizens. For example, potential uses include a compliance tool for the mineral lands tax program, coal resource estimates, subsidence risk assessment and amelioration, planning and development, and mine permitting and regulation.

Development of a statewid, GIS-based inventory of coal resources for Illinois  

SciTech Connect

A statewide, GIS-based (geographic information system) inventory of coal resources in Illinois has been developed to provide information on the quality, availability, and recoverability of the state`s resources. The new database was assembled over a 9-month period from pre-existing digital data, newly digitized maps, and computer-contoured point-source data. The database contains resource information for 26 coal seams in 75 counties. The data include thickness, depth, mining status (minable, mined-out, inaccessible), sulfur content, heating value, and rank of the coal. Processing efficiency was enhanced by having individual staff members focus on specialized tasks (e.g. processing mine maps versus coal thickness maps). Detailed, on-line documentation was maintained to track and record the status of each component of information. Development of the GIS database revealed irregularities inherent in many paper-based resource inventories: some older base maps differed from newer ones digitized from more recent 7.5- minute quadrangles; depth and thickness contours on maps of adjoining areas commonly did not match and, in some cases, older boundaries of mined areas extended beyond more recent boundaries. Conversion of all the data to the new GIS resulted in some changes in volumetric values for coal seams in areas that had been neither re-mapped nor mined since the previous.

Applications of geographic information systems (GIS) in decision analysis for monitoring aquifer systems during oilfield development projects  

SciTech Connect

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) coupled with numerical ground water models provide a powerful Decision Support System (DSS) and visualization tool for monitoring aquifer systems during oilfield development projects. A GIS is a coupled software/hardware system that stores, processes, and displays a variety of data structures (raster, vector, TIN, CAD) that have been geographically referenced to some common map projection and coordinate system. Georeferencing allows the analyst to integrate diverse types of data layers into thematic maps for analysis of spatial trends and analyses. The integration of quasi 3-D numerical ground water models with GIS provides project managers with a Decision Support System (DSS) to assess potential impacts to aquifer systems during oilfield development projects. The rapid advancement in desktop PC computing power and data storage has allowed software developers to produce 32-bit GIS and data integration software applications. A variety of image processing, GIS, and numerical ground water modeling software will be used to demonstrate techniques for monitoring and visualizing the migration of an oilfield brine plume leaking during an oilfield development project. Emphasis will be placed on the integration of data structures and on database design to create a DSS within a desktop GIS to serve Project Managers during oilfield development.

Development of a GIS for environmental assessment incorporating known potential environmental hazards and remote sensing  

SciTech Connect

The development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) application to evaluate potential environmental hazards within the Bushkill watershed in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, is described by the authors. Information identifying hazardous materials used by businesses within the watershed was obtained from databases of the Environmental Protection Agency. These databases were supplemented and updated by visual reconnaissance and by a review of current tax maps, zoning information and aerial photographs. Information regarding the use or storage of substances considered hazardous was collected from various agencies as well as any known violations of environmental regulations by the businesses. Geographic information including remotely sensed data and maps of surface water bodies, geology and soil types was also obtained for the study area. A GIS was used to integrate the geographic information with the hazardous substance database resulting in a tool for use in environmental site assessments, planning for subsequent site characterization, and for environmental educational purposes.

A tightly coupled GIS and distributed hydrologic modeling framework  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Distributed, physics-based hydrologic models require spatially explicit specification of parameters related to climate, geology, land-cover, soil, and topography. Extracting these parameters from national geodatabases requires intensive data processing. Furthermore, mapping these parameters to model mesh elements necessitates development of data access tools that can handle both spatial and temporal datasets. This paper presents an open-source, platform independent, tightly coupled GIS and distributed hydrologic modeling framework, \\{PIHMgis\\} (www.pihm.psu.edu), to improve model-data integration. Tight coupling is achieved through the development of an integrated user interface with an underlying shared geodata model, which improves data flow between the \\{PIHMgis\\} data processing components. The capability and effectiveness of the \\{PIHMgis\\} framework in providing functionalities for watershed delineation, domain decomposition, parameter assignment, simulation, visualization and analyses, is demonstrated through prototyping of a model simulation. The framework and the approach are applicable for watersheds of varied sizes, and offer a template for future GIS-Model integration efforts.

The use of geographical information system (GIS) technology in surface mine reclamation monitoring  

SciTech Connect

The use of a Geographic Information System (GIS) and related technologies (e.g., Digital cartographic tools, satellite image processing systems) can benefit the planning and monitoring of open-pit mine reclamation activities. PCI Geomatics, in conjunction with Luscar Limited's Line Creek Mine, has developed a GIS-based system designed to store information relevant to planning and assessing reclamation progress. Data that existed in various formats throughout the company, and which had been collected since the mine-planning phase, was integrated into the GIS. The system is used to summarize current reclamation activities and is linked to corporate costing procedures. Monitoring of reclamation activities and quantifying change in the mine area is easily done using the spatial analysis capabilities of the GIS. Assessments of the change in reclamation areas are enhanced by using satellite image data to produce inexpensive and timely information on the land base, and allow the comparison of the health of the vegetation to reclamation areas from year to year. The implemented system substantially reduces the time needed to generate statistics and produce maps for government or internal reports. Also, there are benefits in terms of both cost and effectiveness of reclamation planning.

Automated GIS-based derivation of urban ecological indicators using hyperspectral remote sensing and height information  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Urban ecological indicators allow the objective and quantitative characterisation of ecological conditions in a spatially continuous way by evaluating the influence of urban surface types with respect to ecological functions and ecosystem services. Although the concept had already been developed in the 1980s, the variety of existing indicators had not been widely applied yet in urban planning practice, because of the high manual mapping effort that is required for spatially differentiated urban surface mapping. This paper presents a new automated remote sensing and GIS-based system for the flexible and user-defined derivation of urban ecological indicators. The system is based on automated surface material mapping using airborne hyperspectral image data and height information. Because the material classes obtained from remote sensing analysis differ in part from the surface types needed for the calculation of urban ecological indicators, they have been transformed into so-called linking categories representing the basis for the automated GIS-based derivation of urban ecological indicators. For this purpose, a computer-based system for flexible indicator derivation has been developed, allowing the user-defined integration of indicators based on the variable determination of mapping units, linking categories and respective weighting factors. Based on a comprehensive review of existing ecological indicators, 14 indicators have been selected and implemented in the system. To demonstrate the potential of the new system, a variety of indicators has been derived for two test sites situated in the German cities of Dresden and Potsdam, using city blocks defined by the municipal authorities as spatial mapping units. The initial mapping of surface materials was automatically performed on the basis of airborne hyperspectral image data acquired by the HyMAP system. The results of subsequent GIS-based indicator calculation were validated using results from field-based reference mapping that had been carried out for selected city blocks situated in both cities. An accuracy assessment for these reference city blocks has revealed mean errors of approximately 4%, confirming the suitability of the developed automated GIS-based system for flexible and efficient indicator calculation.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) is currently applying geographic information systems (GIS) technology to develop a geologic knowledge base that will provide the framework for an integrated basin analysis for the San Juan basin. GIS technology involves the integration of mapping and data-base functions that enable the user to integrate and manipulate spatial (coordinate) data with attribute (thematic) data in order to combine complex geographic, geologic, and geophysical data sets into resultant overlay and composite maps and to conduct multivariate exploratory data analysis and have access to a variety of options for analyzing these databases. The San Juan basin, a 13,500-mi{sup 2} Laramide structural basin in northwestern New Mexico, was chosen for the pilot project. The basin encompasses a maximum of over 15,000 ft of Paleozoic to Eocene sedimentary rock and contains economic deposits of natural gas, oil, coal, and uranium. Successful exploration in this basin requires an understanding of the complex stratigraphy and structural geology controlling the distribution of these resources. GIS technology applied to the San Juan basin includes both surface and subsurface data sets that establish a three-dimensional perspective of the basin's fundamental stratigraphic and structural framework and aid in the identification of its temporal and tectonic relationships relative to origin and occurrence of its resources. Among the digital data bases used for surface mapping is the US GeoData system from the USGS's national mapping program, which includes digital elevation models (DEM) for terrain elevations: digital line graphs (DLG) for planimetric information on boundaries, transportation, hydrography, and the US Public Land Survey system; and land use and land cover (LULC) data. Additional data bases used for surface mapping include surficial geology, locations of oil and gas wells, well status, and oil and gas fields.

Use of GIS to discover potential coalfields in Yatagan–Milas area in Turkey  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The study was aimed to produce potential coalfield map using geographic information systems (GIS) in the Milas–Yatagan Basin. Frequency ratio model was used to define the relationships between the coal occurrences and the selected variables which are significant for coal prospection. Formation, geologic age, lithology, rock types, depositional environment, distance to fault and slope data of the study area were used as variables. Frequency ratio values of the variables were calculated and assigned to variable's class attributes. All variable maps were summed according to the frequency ratio values of superposed pixels to calculate the probability index. The probability index values of the potential map were classified into five classes as very high, high, medium, low and very low probability areas. Finally, the potential map was compared with known coalfields in the Milas–Yatagan Basin and calculated distribution of the known coalfields on the probable areas.

The West Virginia mineral lands program: Statewide GIS resource evaluation and assessment  

SciTech Connect

In 1995, the West Virginia legislature enacted H.B. 2222 that provided a mandate and funding for a statewide evaluation of mineral resources, specifically coal, to promote a more open and equitable means to assess the taxable value of mineral holdings by West Virginia property owners. Written into the legislation was an appropriation for the initial development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) to integrate the work. Designated as the Mineral Lands Mapping Program, the lead agencies are the VIV Geological and Economic Survey, the WV Department of Tax and Revenue, and the State GIS Technical Support Center at West Virginia University. The complex topography and geology of West Virginia require that large volumes of two- and three-dimensional spatial data be created to support the identification, mapping, and evaluation of coal resources for improved tax assessment of land parcels. The political and economic context of the project, data requirements and sources, inputs and digital conversion procedures, adoption of metadata and data standards, geological base mapping, coal resource modeling methods, tax parcel reconciliation, and integration of the various data sets are all important issues for this program.

We define extension maps as maps that extend a system (through adding ancillary systems) without changing the state in the original system. We show, using extension maps, why a completely positive operation on an initially entangled system results in a non positive mapping of a subsystem. We also show that any trace preserving map, either positive or negative, can be decomposed in terms of an extension map and a completely positive map.

An Approach to Produce a GIS Database for Road Surface Monitoring  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Road Surface Monitoring (RSM) is the process of detecting the distress on paved or unpaved road surfaces. The primary aim of this process is to detect any distress (such as road surface cracks) at early stages in order to apply maintenance on time. Early detection of road cracks can assist maintenance before the repair costs becomes too high. Local authorities should have an effective and easy to use monitoring process in place across the road network to meet their obligations. The process of adding geographical identification metadata to the photos is called “Geo-tagging”. The proposed method in this work entails capturing GPS information when the photo is taken for the road surface distress, then attaching the photo to a map. The location disclosure in the act of geo-tagging of a photo provides qualities to the digital map. In that respect, a specific richness of the GIS dataset arises when they disclose the road surface distress photos. This paper proposes a system for establishing a GIS database consisting of geo-tagged photos for local authorities to automate the process of recording and reporting road surface distresses. This system is easy to use, cost-effective, deployable, and can be used effectively by local authorities.

Street-based Topological Representations and Analyses for Predicting Traffic Flow in GIS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is well received in the space syntax community that traffic flow is significantly correlated to a morphological property of streets, which are represented by axial lines, forming a so called axial map. The correlation co-efficient (R square value) approaches 0.8 and even a higher value according to the space syntax literature. In this paper, we study the same issue using the Hong Kong street network and the Hong Kong Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) datasets, and find surprisingly that street-based topological representations (or street-street topologies) tend to be better representations than the axial map. In other words, vehicle flow is correlated to a morphological property of streets better than that of axial lines. Based on the finding, we suggest the street-based topological representations as an alternative GIS representation, and the topological analyses as a new analytical means for geographic knowledge discovery.

An IT and GIS exploration of web-based nature tourism enterprises in the rural agricultural sector in Texas  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper addresses the role of IT in facilitating economic diversification for rural agricultural enterprises in Texas. The development of Texas INFRONT, an innovative database that acts as a clearinghouse of information for enterprises, is described. GIS mapping and analysis was applied as an innovative investigative tool to examine the relationship between a changing economic environment and the rise of online nature tourism businesses by rural producers. Spatial analysis for clusters and dispersions of nature tourism businesses using the internet was conducted. This revealed a variety of phenomena such as the concentration of nature tourism enterprises around urban centres. The results indicate that GIS-based spatial modelling informed by theoretical frameworks such as cultural ecology, while not common in the field of tourism research, can reveal important information about IT innovation and use by rural producers diversifying into nature tourism enterprises supported by the web, under conditions of economic hardship.

Fuzzy GIS-based multi-criteria evaluation for U.S. Agave production as a Fuzzy GIS-based multi-criteria evaluation for U.S. Agave production as a bioenergy feedstock Title Fuzzy GIS-based multi-criteria evaluation for U.S. Agave production as a bioenergy feedstock Publication Type Report Refereed Designation Unknown Year of Publication 2013 Authors Lewis, Sarah M., Sthephen Gross, Axel Visel, Maggi Kelly, and William R. Morrow Keywords Agave, bioenergy, biofuel, fuzzy logic, geographic information systems, suitability mapping Abstract In the United States, renewable energy mandates calling for increased production of cellulosic biofuels will require a diversity of bioenergy feedstocks to meet growing demands. Within the suite of potential energy crops, plants within the genus Agave promise to be a productive feedstock in hot and arid regions. The potential distri- butions of Agave tequilana and Agave deserti in the United States were evaluated based on plant growth parameters identified in an extensive literature review. A geospatial suitability model rooted in fuzzy logic was developed that utilized a suite of biophysical criteria to optimize ideal geographic locations for this new crop, and several suitability scenarios were tested for each species. The results of this spatially explicit suitability model suggest that there is potential for Agave to be grown as an energy feedstock in the southwestern region of the United States - particularly in Arizona, California, and Texas - and a significant portion of these areas are proximate to existing transportation infrastructure. Both Agave species showed the highest state-level renewable energy benefit in Arizona, where agave plants have the potential to contribute 4.8-9.6% of the states' ethanol consumption, and 2.5-4.9% of its electricity consumption, for A. deserti and A. tequilana, respectively. This analysis supports the feasibility of Agave as a complementary bioenergy feedstock that can be grown in areas too harsh for conventional energy feedstocks.

A Gis-based system for assessing marine water quality around offshore platforms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this study, a GIS-based system (MWQ-FES) is developed for marine water quality assessment around offshore oil platforms. The developed method consists of a fuzzy risk assessment model, a eutrophication assessment module, a heavy metal assessment module, a dynamic database, the ArcGIS Engine, and a graphical user interface (GUI). The developed GIS-based GUI system integrates the fuzzy risk calculation, eutrophication risk assessment and heavy metal risk evaluation and both spatially and visually presents the results in the form of contour maps and color-coded maps that indicate the risk levels. The assessment modules analyze a large amount of data with both spatial and temporal distributions; these data are managed by the developed system. An application of the developed MWQ-FES to a real case study in China is presented in this study. The MWQ-FES produces risk maps that depict the spatial distribution of the integrated water quality index values, the eutrophication risk level and the heavy metal risk level in the study area. The primary factors that affect the water quality are subsequently examined using the visualized results. The results of the fuzzy risk assessment model show that the general water quality status in the study area was good in Oct. 2005, May 2006, and Sept. 2007, while fair water quality occurred in May 2007. For Oct. 2005, May 2006, and Sept. 2007, the eutrophication risk levels were oligotrophic, slightly eutrophic and mesotrophic, respectively. However, the eutrophication risk level at most of the sites in May 2007 was highly eutrophic. These findings agreed with previously reported water quality variations in the study area. The heavy metal risk level in the study area exhibited a slight risk during all four investigations. As for the ecological risk in the mariculture zone near the study area, the heavy metal risk exhibited a slight risk; the eutrophication risk level ranged from eutrophic to slightly mesotrophic. A comparison with previous environmental assessment results for the same study area confirms that the developed MWQ-FES can provide a better understanding of the distribution of the water quality status and ecological risk levels. Moreover, MWQ-FES can be a useful decision-support tool for marine water quality management.

GIS surface effects archive of underground nuclear detonations conducted at Yucca Flat and Pahute Mesa, Nevada Test Site, Nevada  

SciTech Connect

This report presents a new comprehensive, digital archive of more than 40 years of geologic surface effects maps produced at individual detonation sites throughout the Yucca Flat and Pahute Mesa nuclear testing areas of the Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada. The Geographic Information System (GIS) surface effects map archive on CD-ROM (this report) comprehensively documents the surface effects of underground nuclear detonations conducted at two of the most extensively used testing areas of the Nevada Test Site. Between 1951 and 1992, numerous investigators of the U.S. Geological Survey, the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency meticulously mapped the surface effects caused by underground nuclear testing. Their work documented the effects of more than seventy percent of the underground nuclear detonations conducted at Yucca Flat and all of the underground nuclear detonations conducted at Pahute Mesa.

Development of a GIS-based monitoring and management system for underground coal mining safety  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Coal mine safety is of paramount concern to mining industry. Mine accidents have various causes and consequences including catastrophic failure of mine, substantial economic losses and most notably loss of lives. Therefore, any initiative in mine monitoring is of vital importance for progressing safety surveillance and maintenance. This paper presents the development of a geographic information system (GIS)-based monitoring and management system for underground mine safety in three levels as constructive safety, surveillance and maintenance, and emergency. The developed model integrates the database design and management to the monitoring system implementation which encompasses query and analysis operations with the help of web and desktop applications. Interactive object-oriented graphical user interfaces (GUIs) were developed to visualize information about the entities gathered from the model and also to provide analysis operations based on the graphical representations and demonstrations using data tables and map objects. The research methodology essentially encompasses five main stages: (i) designing a conceptual database model; (ii) development of a logical model in terms of entity-relationship (ER) diagrams; (iii) development of a physical model based on physical constraints and requirements; (iv) development of \\{GUIs\\} and implementation of the developed model, analysis and queries; (v) verification and validation of the created model for Ömerler underground coal mine in Turkey. The proposed system is expected to be an efficient tool for improving and maintaining healthy standards in underground coal mines which can possibly be extended to a national GIS infrastructure.

An open source Java web application to build self-contained web GIS sites  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This work describes OWGIS, an open source Java web application that creates Web GIS sites by automatically writing HTML and JavaScript code. OWGIS is configured by XML files that define which layers (geographic datasets) will be displayed on the websites. This project uses several Open Geospatial Consortium standards to request data from typical map servers, such as GeoServer, and is also able to request data from ncWMS servers. The latter allows for the displaying of 4D data stored using the NetCDF file format (widely used for storing environmental model datasets). Some of the features available on the sites built with OWGIS are: multiple languages, animations, vertical profiles and vertical transects, color palettes, color ranges, and the ability to download data. OWGIS main users are scientists, such as oceanographers or climate scientists, who store their data in NetCDF files and want to analyze, visualize, share, or compare their data using a website.

Alaska Coal Geology: GIS Data | OpenEI  

Open Energy Info (EERE)

Coal Geology: GIS Data Coal Geology: GIS Data Dataset Summary Description Estimated Alaska coal resources are largely in Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks distributed in three major provinces. Northern Alaska-Slope, Central Alaska-Nenana, and Southern Alaska-Cook Inlet. Cretaceous resources, predominantly bituminous coal and lignite, are in the Northern Alaska-Slope coal province. Most of the Tertiary resources, mainly lignite to subbituminous coal with minor amounts of bituminous and semianthracite coals, are in the other two provinces. The combined measured, indicated, inferred, and hypothetical coal resources in the three areas are estimated to be 5,526 billion short tons (5,012 billion metric tons), which constitutes about 87 percent of Alaska's coal and surpasses the total coal resources of the conterminous United States by 40 percent.

Southwest Virginia underground coal mine map database and base maps - synopsis of an ongoing coalfield project  

SciTech Connect

In September 1991, the Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy of the Commonwealth of Virginia entered into an agreement with the office of Surface Mining to prepare a coal mine map database and to produce 1:24,000 scale individual coal-bed base maps showing documented underground mined areas throughout the Southwest Virginia coal field. The project results are to provide public, industry, and all levels of government a much-needed means of initial evaluation of many coalfield related concerns. The completed maps will be incorporated into an integrated geographic information system (GIS). Evaluating the entire coalfield involved a preliminary review of 48 quadrangles. Ongoing detailed, accurate information gathering of extensive underground mine map files was necessary to provide a needed organized map database. Construction of coalfield index maps of information gathered to date provide insight into coalfield-wide outcrop patterns, mine distributions, and coal-bed trends. A completed set of individual maps, referenced to the underground mine map database, showing the types of mining applicable per coal bed quadrangle is the designated project output.

Lower granite GIS data description and collection guidelines  

SciTech Connect

The Lower Granite Geographic Information System (GIS) was developed jointly by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USCOE) Walla Walla District and the Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL). The goal of the project is to use GIS technology to analyze impacts of the drawdown mitigation option on the physical and biological environment of the Lower Granite Reservoir. The drawdown mitigation option is based on the hypothesis that faster juvenile salmon travel to the ocean would result in higher juvenile survival and greater smolt-to-adult return ratios; to accomplish this, reservoir elevations would be lowered to increase channel velocities. Altering the elevation of the reservoirs on the Snake River is expected to have a variety of impacts to the Physical environment including changes to water velocity, temperature, dissolved gases, and turbidity. The GIS was developed to evaluate these changes and the resulting impacts on the anadromous and resident fish of the Snake River, as well as other aquatic organisms and terrestrial wildlife residing in the adjacent riparian areas. The Lower Granite GIS was developed using commercial hardware and software and is supported by a commercial relational database. Much of the initial system development involved collecting and incorporating data describing the river channel characteristics, hydrologic properties, and aquatic ecology. Potentially meaningful data for the Lower Granite GIS were identified and an extensive data search was performed. Data were obtained from scientists who are analyzing the habitats, limnology, and hydrology of the Snake River. The next six sections of this document describe the bathymetry, fish abundance, substrate, sediment chemistry, and channel hydrology data.

Multicriteria decision analysis based on analytic hierarchy process in GIS environment for siting nuclear power plant in Egypt  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Due to increasing demand of electrical energy and freshwater in Egypt, it is safe to assume that the decision makers will turn to nuclear power as the feasible alternative for energy. However, as time goes by, fewer sites will be available and suitable for nuclear power plant development. Site selection is a key phase of the siting process of a nuclear plant and may significantly affect the safety and cost of the facility during its entire life cycle. The siting of nuclear power plants is one of multi-criteria problems, which makes it complex. Many interrelated factors affect the process. Six constraints and twenty-two factors corresponding to safety, environment and socio-economy were considered in the siting study presented in this paper. Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis was applied during the selection of nuclear power plants site using GIS software. Three spatial decision making models were applied in this paper during site selection stage. The binary overlay (Boolean logic) with Low Risk approach in which the logical OR operator is used to determine the candidate areas. All constraints were represented in binary maps, combined and a masking layer was created to eliminate the lands considered as constraints in Arc GIS Software. The 22 factors were represented in normalized maps after unifying all of them to 0–1 score scales based on the philosophy of suitability criteria (factors) using the Weighted Linear Combination (WLC) method. The relative scores and weight of factors which were used in the maps conducted by pairwise comparison were fed into Expert choice software that runs the Analytic Hierarchy Process. Final composite map of potential site priorities were represented by several polygons produced in MCDA add-in as an open source tool in Arc GIS 10.1. Four sites, all located along the North western and the Red Sea coasts were chosen as Candidate sites after eliminating the lowest scoring sites The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was used to select a suitable site by pairwise comparison and by calculating eigenvectors using Expert Choice software. The sites were ranked to determine the most desirable site. The El Dabaa site was found to be most suitable, followed by the East El Negila site on the Mediterranean Sea.

Using GIS and numerical modeling to assess subsidence over abandoned mines  

SciTech Connect

The US Bureau of Mines (USBM) has been developing techniques to assess surface subsidence over abandoned coal mines. One technique has involved estimation of stress acting on every pillar of an abandoned mine then comparing it to pillar strength and floor bearing capacity. This required computations for several thousand pillars for one mine. Mine maps are digitized and saved as a computer drawing file. Then the tributary area loading each pillar was determined graphically and outlined. Geographic Information System (GIS) software was used to compute the ratio of pillar area to tributary area for each pillar and then divide the average overburden stress by this ratio to compute an estimated pillar stress. Numerical modeling was then used to analyze a two-dimensional cross section of the overburden and mine, and provide an independent estimate of stresses. Based on published data for floor bearing capacity and pillar load capacity, GIS was used to perform a mine-wide classification of pillars according to stress level. An example of this analysis and classification is presented in this paper for an abandoned coal mine in the Illinois Basin. The mine had been operated in the Herrin No. 6 Seam at a depth of 60 in with an average overburden stress of 1.4 MPa. It was found that pillars with estimated stresses greater than 5 MPa correlated with historical subsidence events. Due to the greater detail considered in this approach, it provides a fundamental basis for the assessment of subsidence risk since it incorporates the geometry of mine pillars and entries as well as the ultimate strength of the pillars and floor.

GIS data models for coal geology  

SciTech Connect

A variety of spatial data models can be applied to different aspects of coal geology. The simple vector data models found in various Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) programs are sometimes used for routine mapping and some simple analyses. However, more sophisticated applications that maintain the topological relationships between cartographic elements enhance analytical potential. Also, vector data models are best for producing various types of high quality, conventional maps. The raster data model is generally considered best for representing data that varies continuously over a geographic area, such as the thickness of a coal bed. Information is lost when contour lines are threaded through raster grids for display, so volumes and tonnages are more accurately determined by working directly with raster data. Raster models are especially well suited to computationally simple surface-to-surface analysis, or overlay functions. Another data model, triangulated irregular networks (TINs) are superior at portraying visible surfaces because many TIN programs support break fines. Break lines locate sharp breaks in slope such as those generated by bodies of water or ridge crests. TINs also {open_quotes}honor{close_quotes} data points so that a surface generated from a set of points will be forced to pass through those points. TINs or grids generated from TINs, are particularly good at determining the intersections of surfaces such as coal seam outcrops and geologic unit boundaries. No single technique works best for all coal-related applications. The ability to use a variety of data models, and transform from one model to another is essential for obtaining optimum results in a timely manner.

The interactive maps are built with layers of spatial data that are also available as direct file downloads (see DDE00299). The maps allow analysis of these many layers, with various data sets turned on or off, for determining potential areas that would be favorable for geothermal drilling or other activity. They provide information on current exploration projects and leases, Bureau of Land Management land status, and map presentation of each type of scientific spatial data: geothermal, geophysical, geologic, geodetic, groundwater, and geochemical.

New Technique for Proposing Network's Topology using GPS and GIS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The problem of proposed topology for network comes when using Prim's algorithm with default distance (unrealistic distances) between network's nodes and don't care about the lakes, high hills, buildings, etc. This problem will cause incorrect estimations for cost (budget) of requirements like the media (optic fibre) and the number or type of Access-points, regenerator, Optic Amplifier, etc. This paper proposed a new technique of implementing Prim's algorithm to obtain realistic topology using realistic distances between network's nodes via Global Positioning System GPS and Geographic Information Systems GIS packages. Applying the new technique on academic institutes network of Erbil city from view of media (optic fibre) shows that there is disability in cost (budget) of the media which is needed (nearly) 4 times if implement default Prim's algorithm (don't using GPS & GIS) base on unrealistic distances between the nodes.

A GIS based assessment of urban sprawl in North Khobar  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Urban sprawl has turn out to be an issue of worldwide interest, mainly because of its alleged negative impacts on the social, economic and environmental aspects of the city. Many studies indicate that it is the pattern, density, and rate of new urban growth that leads to sprawl. The proportion of the total population in a region to the total built-up area of the region is a measure of quantifying sprawl. This paper presents a quantitative method to analyse urban sprawl based on computation of indicators and GIS techniques. It was found out that for the study area the percentage change in the built-up area (1980-2005) was 14 times higher than the percentage change in the population growth, and also with the analysis capabilities in GIS, it determined the patterns and densities of new growth thereby classifying some of those areas as sprawl patterns.

Enhancing management decision making in global enterprises using GIS principles  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Business organisations are increasing their influence and presence throughout the world as domestic economies become oversaturated. Organisations increasingly turn to international commerce to discover new markets. Globalisation requires that firms adapt their management and decision-making practices to recognise localised cultural, political, legal, social, and security requirements. In response, organisations are revamping their decision processes, tailoring them as cultures evolve, political assumptions and realities change, laws are enacted, social issues come to the forefront, and security requirements mature. Traditional decision support systems (DSS) are incapable of readily incorporating localised variables into decision-making processes and must be enhanced. Geographic Information Systems (GIS), have the potential to enhance traditional management decision-making (DSS) tools by adapting them for use in global environments. This paper proposes the melding of GIS and DSS toolsets to create a new framework, hereinafter referred to as Geographically-Enhanced Decision Support Systems (GEDSS), for enhanced management and decision-making for businesses.

DEVELOPMENT OF COAL BED METHANE UTILIZING GIS TECHNOLOGIES  

SciTech Connect

During the second half of the 1990's, Coal Bed Methane (CBM) production increased dramatically nationwide to represent a significant new source of income and natural gas for many independent and established producers. Matching these soaring production rates during this period were the advancements in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technologies generating terra-bytes of new data for the oil and gas industry. Coupled to these accelerating initiatives are many environmental concerns relating to production wastes and water table depletion of fresh water resources. It is these concerns that prompted a vital need within the industry for the development of Best Management Practices (BMPs) and mitigation strategies utilizing GIS technologies for efficient environmental protection in conjunction with effective production of CBM. This was accomplished by developing a framework to take advantage of a combination of investigative field research joined with leading edge GIS technologies for the creation of environmentally characterized regions of study. Once evaluated these regions had BMP's developed to address their unique situations for Coal Bed Methane production and environmental protection. Results of the project will be used to support the MBOGC's Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement as required by the Montana Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) and by the BLM for NEPA related issues for acreage having federally owned minerals.

Assessment of ground subsidence using GIS and the weights-of-evidence model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The weights-of-evidence model, one of the Bayesian probability models was applied in evaluating a ground subsidence spatial hazard near abandoned underground coal mines (AUCMs) at Magyori area, Samcheok City in Korea using GIS. Using ground subsidence location and a spatial database containing information such as mining tunnel, borehole, topography, geology, and land use, the weights-of-evidence model was applied to calculate each relevant factor's rating for the Magyori area in Korea. Seven major factors controlling or related to ground subsidence were determined from the probability analysis of the existing ground subsidence area; depth of drift and distance from drift from the mining tunnel map, slope gradient obtained from the topographical map, ground water level and permeability from borehole data, geology and land use. Tests of conditional independence were performed for the selection of factors, allowing 6 combinations of factors to be analyzed. For the analysis of mapping ground subsidence spatial hazard, the contrast values, W+ and W?, of each factor's rating were overlaid spatially. The results of the analysis were validated using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) with the previous ground subsidence locations. In the case of all factor used, the area under the ROC curve (AUC) showed 0.9667, which corresponds to an accuracy of 96.67%. In the case of the combinations, the case of distance from drift, depth of ground water and land use used, showed the 90.71% (AUC: 0.9071) accuracy which is the best result produced in this analysis. The results can be used for hazard prevention and land-use planning near AUCM areas.

Integrated RS, GIS and GPS approaches to archaeological prospecting in the Hexi Corridor, NW China: a case study of the royal road to ancient Dunhuang  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract According to historic records, the wasteland northeast of modern Dunhuang oasis contains remarkable, undiscovered monuments of medieval courier stations. In this study, statistical analysis of historic records and census data, image processing and interpretation of satellite remote sensing images, GIS analysis, and field surveys were carried out to contribute to the discovery of courier stations and the reconstruction of the medieval royal road system from Guazhou to Shazhou. Firstly, in order to obtain the existence regions of courier stations, historic records and census data were abstracted and digitized, for generating preliminary regions of interest by using GIS tools. Secondly, dried river channels and traces of the Great Wall were extracted from the remote sensing images, and GIS buffer and overlay analyses were applied to the creation of prospective sub-areas. Thirdly, prospective sub-areas were mapped from very high resolution WorldView-2 images, and suspected sites were found based on the human-computer interactive interpretation. Fourthly, suspected sites were investigated on the GPS-based archaeological survey, and were confirmed as two courier stations based on the remains of Han-Tang period observed at sites' surface. Lastly, the royal road to ancient Dunhuang, one of the most important sections of the royal road system in the Hexi Corridor, was discussed and reconstructed with the combined application of remote sensing imagery and ground-truthing.

For total resource estimation, wave power density in terms of kilowatts per meter is aggregated across a unit diameter circle. This approach is fully consistent with accepted global practice and includes the resource made available by the lateral transfer of wave energy along wave crests, which enables densities within a few kilometers of a linear array, even for fixed terminator devices.
