Title: Task 7.2 -- Resource data evaluation. Topical report, July 1, 1994--May 31, 1995

Abstract

The Resource Data Evaluation subtask of the US Department of Energy (DOE) base program represents an Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) initiative to promote the integration of geographic information system (GIS) technologies with other ongoing and planned EERC research in the areas of resource utilization, remediation, land use planning, and regulatory and policy assessment. Significant demand for GIS based information already exists for energy resource evaluation, interpretation of remote sensing data, environmental assessment at the state and local levels, and use in strategic planning. Through sound data taking procedures and wise data management policies, a GIS approach can serve an integral function in permitting cross disciplinary uses of information by many EERC researchers. The use of GIS methodologies will expand the potential for interaction between the researcher, governmental agencies, and private companies. The objective of this task was to determine the appropriate platform and approach upon which to develop GIS applications for optimizing resource evaluation and integrating this information with related areas of interest. Database design was undertaken for two EERC projects: coal occurrence in Bowman and adjacent counties in the Fort Union Coal Region of southwestern North Dakota; and energy resource utilization concerns for selected sites in Alaskamore » related to energy consumption, gas fields, gas pipelines, and coal availability.« less
