  • Understanding Geographical Instrumentation

    Geographical instrumentation is one of the much heard terms especially in the field of building. Anywhere, where construction is carried out then services rendered for site examination plays an important role. It helps in identifying possible risks and also effectiveness present within the current site or structure.  Designing of the Site The basic step which is carried out ...

  • Delineation of potential sites for rainwater harvesting structures using a geographic information system-based decision support system

    This paper presents a methodology based on a decision support system (DSS) that employs remote sensing and field survey data and geographic information system (GIS) to identify potential rainwater harvesting areas (RWH). This DSS was implemented to obtain suitability maps and to evaluate the existing RWH structures in the study area. The DSS inputs comprised maps of rainfall surplus, slope, ...

  • State-wide collection of site remediation data in support of environmental quality objectives

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS) hold great potential as a tool for managing environmental site remediation data. While noting the location of contaminated sites in GIS is commonplace, GIS has played only a minor role in review and analysis of chemical data gathered during an investigation or monitoring activity. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Site Remediation Branch ...

  • Spatial variability of nutrients (N, P) in a deep, temperate lake with a low trophic level supported by global navigation satellite systems, geographic information system and geostatistics

    We investigated changes in the spatial distribution of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) in the deep, mesotrophic Lake Hańcza. The raw data collection, supported by global navigation satellite system (GNSS) positioning, was conducted on 79 sampling points. A geostatistical method (kriging) was applied in spatial interpolation. Despite the relatively small area of the lake (3.04 km2), ...

  • Decision support system for disaster communications in Dalmatia

    Taking into account that Dalmatia (Croatian region), due to its natural characteristics, is exposed to the dangers caused by natural or other catastrophes, within the DPPI (Disaster Preparation and Prevention Initiative) a project for telecommunications and information support during emergency situations is conceptualised. Within the project, a decision support system (DSS) is developed. The ...

  • Analytical Support for Cost-Effective Pollution Control

    ' Analytical tools have been developed by the World Bank Group to estimate rapidly the extent and impacts of pollution in a given situation and to support decisions on pollution management. These tools help decision makers to overcome the frequent lack of data on emissions from different sources, their impact on ambient quality, and mitigation alternatives.' Decision Support System for ...

  • Data analytics and the materials cycle

    Data has the potential to revolutionise the materials industry, from extraction to processing to commercialisation. But it can only do so with the right mix of technology, skills and strategy. Dr Matt Jones explains. Using data is nothing new, but the rapid increase in data sources and quantity of data collected means getting the most out of it is ever more important. Properly used, data ...

  • Urban planning support systems in Japan: evolutions and implications

    This paper introduces Japan's institutional efforts on city–level information systems and geospatial databases in various historical phases in the context of urban planning and e–government. The study of urban planning information systems and geospatial data building has been led by the national government from the beginning since 1970s. However, single purpose GISs, such as UIS in ...

  • A review of decision support system applications in flood management

    There are several spatial problems in the water resources sector such as flood control and management, which can be managed efficiently if there is a case–based decision–making process. These types of problems need human intervention and amicable management is possible by decision making based on various possible alternatives. The recent advances in computational facilities, quick and real time ...

  • Development of decision support system for managing and using recreational beaches

    The paper presents a decision support system (DSS) for managing and using recreational beaches. The DSS consists of (1) a sensor-assisted water quality monitoring system, (2) a multiple linear regression (MLR) model, developed with the Virtual Beach (VB) program, for predicting enterococci levels, and (3) a web-enabled Geographic Information System (GIS) platform for displaying beach water ...

  • Development of a GIS-based decision support tool and assessment of Nile River water quality

    The objective of this paper is to develop and present a GIS-based and software tool capable of data management, data visualisation, and data analysis. The developed software is proved to be a good tool in the initial assessment of the quality status of the Nile river water quality. In addition a Graphical User Interface (GUI) was fully designed and implemented to make the GIS tool very easy and ...

  • A decision support system for air quality management combining GIS and optimisation techniques

    This paper describes a multi-tiered approach to the design of plans and policies for urban environmental management, in particular air quality, as related to the energy and transportation sectors. The approach is based on the iterative combination of sectoral and global optimisation models, including a discrete multi-criteria approach, and spatially distributed air quality models. The approach ...

  • Managing Compliance: Taking Stock of Your Regulatory and Product Data in 2012

    As we head into 2012, the regulatory landscape remains volatile and unpredictable. OSHA’s adoption of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) was announced in March, significant progress is being made on the Safe Chemicals Act and the new requirement to produce REACH exposure scenarios (ES) further burdens manufacturers and distributors who already are struggling to conform to REACH’s ...
