  • Developing a Stormwater Infrastructure Geospatial Database for a Large Non-Traditional MS4 System

     ABSTRACT The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is a state agency which owns and maintains parks, conservation and watershed land, and roadways. They are regulated as a non-traditional MS4 stormwater municipality under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II program. To satisfy the ...

  • Land assessment for flood spreading site selection using geospatial information system

    Irregular patterns of precipitations from temporal as well as spatial perspectives not only cause destructions but also waste surface water resources. Hence, controlling surface water and leading the flood to underground stores improve the efficiency of water usage. Selecting appropriate sites for optimal use of water floods is ...

  • Geospatial water quality assessment system for the Sg. Buloh river basin in Malaysia

    Assessment of pollution risk requires the assimilation of spatio-temporally variable data on water quality parameters. This paper describes a GIS user-interface program coupled with a water quality index (WQI) model that was developed and built to assess water quality in the Sg. Buloh river basin. Fifty-two water sampling stations were selected for this study, and the WQI model considers ...

  • European Agrochemicals Geospatial Loss Estimator: Model Development and Applications

     The CAP reform by decoupling subsidies from production levels and liking them to the protection of the environment is promoting a cleaner agriculture and a more sustainable use of resources. Agricultural subsidies are now linked to application of statutory minimum requirements (SMR) and cross compliance. Farmers willing to go beyond SMR can get additional payments through Rural Development ...


  • Integrated water management plan for Shimla City in India using geospatial techniques

    This study focuses on evolving an integrated water management plan (IWMP) for Shimla City (erstwhile summer capital of British India). Presently it is the state capital of Himachal Pradesh. Total water demand (2014) is 58.46 million litres per day (MLD) against system capacity of 54.54 MLD. The present deficit of 3.92 MLD (2014) may amplify to 59.01 MLD in 2051. Resource assessment in the ...

  • Georgia city uses geospatial technology to identify assets and improve safety

    One of Georgia’s newest cities decided to go digital with CH2M - digitizing assets to manage operations and improve public safety for the city. If you’re a brand new city, you’re probably thinking what can we do to quickly make our community a better place to live? Peachtree Corners, one of Georgia’s newest cities, decided to go digital with CH2M - digitizing ...

  • Giardiasis in the United States – an epidemiologic and geospatial analysis of county-level drinking water and sanitation data, 1993–2010

    Giardiasis is the most commonly reported intestinal parasitic infection in the United States. Outbreak investigations have implicated poorly maintained private wells, and hypothesized a role for wastewater systems in giardiasis transmission. Surveillance data consistently show geographic variability in reported giardiasis incidence. We explored county-level associations between giardiasis ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Influence of an Integrated Remedial System on Groundwater Hydrology

    ABSTRACT This paper summarizes the development of a remedial system designed to hydraulically contain and ultimately reduce a plume consisting of primarily 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane (1,1,2,2-TeCA). The system consists of groundwater circulating wells or extraction wells located in the core of the 1,1,2,2-TeCA plume to provide active source control, combined with monitored natural attenuation ...

  • Molecular techniques and data integration: investigating distribution system coliform events

    A retrospective analysis of coliform events in a drinking water distribution system was conducted. A total of 13 coliform isolates with specific geographic/sampling records were analysed using microbial source tracking (MST) to establish genetic (based on DNA) and phenotypic (based on substrate utilization) relatedness between isolates, and a data integration approach (geo-spatial and event ...

  • Data Sharing – a Case of Shared Databases and Community Use of On-Line GIS Support Systems

    Data management is becoming increasingly simple and complex at the same time. The challenge is to effectively use the increasing number of tools available to manage increasing amounts of environmental information for purposes of data capture, analysis, display, sharing and storage. Government is no longer the main collector and provider of data. Community groups possess vast amounts of data ...

  • Water quality assessment of a polluted urban river

    Urban rivers in Latin America are heavily impacted by human activities that affect their functions and services. This paper shows the results of a water quality assessment for the Reconquista River, the second most polluted urban river in Argentina. They allowed the identification of the main processes of transport of pollutants and the prioritisation of different areas of the basin for ...

  • Human-GIS interaction issues in crisis response

    Geospatial information systems (GIS) provide a central infrastructure for computer supported crisis management in terms of database, analytical models and visualisation tools, but the user interfaces of such systems are still hard to use, and do not address the special needs of crisis managers who often work in teams and make judgements and decisions under stress. This paper articulates the ...

  • Mapping the results of mobile network monitoring: a GIS solution

    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 ...

  • Applying the Land Use Portfolio Model with Hazus to analyse risk from natural hazard events

    This paper describes and demonstrates the integration of two geospatial decision–support systems for natural–hazard risk assessment and management. Hazus is a risk–assessment tool developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to identify risks and estimate the severity of risk from natural hazards. The Land Use Portfolio Model (LUPM) is a risk–management tool ...

  • Uncertainty and urban water recharge for managing groundwater availability using decision support

    Quantifying groundwater availability depends upon sound methods and the use of integrated models. To determine availability or sustainable yield, the influence of scientific uncertainty from key sources, such as anthropogenic recharge, must be considered. This study evaluates uncertainty in recharge interpretations on the modeled available water balance for an urban case in Texas, USA. Analyses ...
