  • Spatial analysis of water quality using a combination of GIS and statistical software

    GIS-based spatial analysis was combined with statistical analysis to process time varying water quality data. A data model was employed to manage the spatio-temporal data. The spatial data engine of ArcSDE was used to access the database. A data relationship model was developed to perform data communication between GIS and the statistical software. Visual Basic was used to construct links between ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • New Jersey Uses GIS, EQuIS to Collect Site Remediation Data

    Using GIS To Manage Remediation Data GIS holds great potential as a tool for managing environmental site remediation data. While using GIS to locate Superfund sites is commonplace, GIS has played only a minor role in the review and analysis of chemical data gathered during an investigation or monitoring activity. There are a number of reasons why GIS has not become commonplace in the ...

  • Integration of Subsurface Data Management and GIS to Facilitate Model Calibration

    Abstract The development of numerical codes, as well as pre- and post-processors to support these codes, has made the discipline of groundwater modelling increasingly more automated and efficient. The value of such modelling is reliant on the site-specific data used to build and calibrate the models. The integration of EarthSoft's EQuISÒ Geology and any of several popular modelling environments ...

  • 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 ...

  • Successful application of GIS technology for post-9/11 disaster management: overcoming challenges, capitalising on advantages

    Post-9/11 conditions have modified disaster management requirements increasing the need for quick access to an array of geocoded information about community critical infrastructure, populations at risk and risk response resources needed for emergency incident decision making. Concomitantly, the risk assessment and risk reduction requirements to prevent disasters from occurring that have emerged ...

  • A GIS-based approach for the long-term prediction of human health risks at contaminated sites

    A Health Index/Risk Evaluation Tool (HIRET) has been developed for the integration of risk assessment and spatial planning using GIS capabilities. The method is meant to assist decision makers and site owners in the evaluation of potential human health risk with respect to land use. Human health risk defined as the potential adverse effects on human life or health is generally accepted as the ...

  • A GIS-supported 3D approach for flood risk assessment of the Qu'Appelle River, Southern Saskatchewan

    This research introduces a hybrid approach for flood risk assessment through GIS. The developed approach is based on the integration of hydraulic simulation and GIS analysis, which allows spatial-based visualisation and prediction of flood disaster. In particular, the Hydraulic Engineering Center River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) model is employed to simulate multi-scenario flood cases within a ...

  • Implementing noise prediction standards in software

    Software requirements in the 80's Until the 80's most consultancy projects were based on noise measurements due to complaints. As noise legislation became more strict, noise prediction became more important. New national and international noise prediction standards As there was no commercial software available many consultants started to develop their ...

  • The 3rd Danish Hydraulic Institute Software Conference within its sociotechnical context

    The two earlier conferences in this series organised by the Danish Hydraulic Institute (DHI), called DHI Software User Conferences, established these gatherings as among the most important events in the hydroinformatics calendar. Building on this success, this third conference in the series introduced an important shift in emphasis away from a primary concentration on users of DHI Software. It ...

  • Considering emergency and disaster management systems from a software architecture perspective

    The use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) has been advocated for addressing the obstacles and improving decision–making for emergency and disaster management. A number of ICT support systems and frameworks, both conceptual and application–based, have evolved to support the highly time and collaboration intensive task of emergency and disaster management. A number of the ...

  • Evaluating Modeling Software - The Hidden Features that Determine the True Cost/Benefit

    There is general agreement that the costs/benefit balance of hydraulic modeling is now heavily in its favor.  The massive advances in both speed of build and ease of use over recent years make modeling the best approach to a far greater range of issues than was the case even a few years ago.  However, as many users know as they try to select modeling software, comparative evaluations of ...

  • Noise Planning Software Used to Map Major EU Roadways

    Most countries have a national noise policy to protect citizens from undesirable environmental noise levels from road, rail and air traffic and industrial sources. The European Noise Directive for the Assessment and Management of Environmental Noise outlines a coordinated method to achieve noise reduction in large cities as a first step, followed by smaller cities as a second step. The ...

  • Which Route Delivers the Best Results - Packaged Software or In-House Development?

    The software “Buy or Build” debate is being won inexorably by packaged software in the majority of applications. With scientific and engineering software, the key was the emergence of the PC and the consequent PC package market in the 1980s. The trend over the years since then has been a one way street leading away from in-house development towards the use of package software, with the increasing ...
