GIS and Remote Sensing in Mining Development and Urban Sprawl

Image
GIS and Remote Sensing Application for Mining AssessmentThis article is showing the application of remote sensing data in finding relation between commercial development and urban sprawl. In this work, natural resource excavation as calls mining mapped and also find harmonic relationship with urban sprawl. Mapping done by remote sensing can be integrated with mathematical and statisticalmodeling to know the future changes. Makrana Mining AreaMakrana is located at 27°03′N/74°43′E-27.05°N/74.72°E. Makrana is a town in the Nagaur district of Rajasthan state of India. It has plenty of marble outcrops. It is famous for the white marble mined from the mines around it. It has an average elevation of 408 meters (1338 feet). The marble mines are located in the vicinity of the Makrana city. So these are directly affecting the human environment of the city. Therefore it is an interesting location for assess the influence of mines on urban sprawl. 
This area has vast marble deposits which are provi…

Application of Remote Sensing and GIS in Urban Sprawl and Watershed Study

Image
Remote sensing and GIS combined to used for mapping, monitoring, planning and management for better and sustainable development of city, state and country. There are many process in GIS and remote sensing, which can be used for creation of raster and vector database. These data can be integrated with mathematical and statistical models/methods for planning and management.Remote sensing images can be acquired temporally and in different bands for preparation of information in qualitative and quantitative with more accuracy. Different image processing methods can be adopted for creation of raster database. GIS can apply to various fields for database creation, analysis, monitoring and planning using vector based analysis. GIS has many functions which can be used to create spatial and non spatial database. In this article, application of remote sensing and GIS explained to understand the impact of urban on watershed.Watershed In a natural watershed environment, structural changes of the …

Application of Remote Sensing and GIS for Estimation of Land Surface Temperature

Image
Remote Sensing and GIS for Estimating Surface TemperatureRemote sensing images or satellite images can be used to estimate the surface temperature. Remote sensing data record reflectanceandemission from earth surface object after interaction of radiation with earth surface feature. The quality of emission and reflectance is also depend on atmospheric interaction of radiation before coming to ground. The emission and reflectance also depend on spectral properties/number of bands present in the sensor.
Emission values from the earth surface are recorded and measured through satellite images and converted into temperature using image processing software and GIS software. The basic image processing technique applied to create information and then GIS tools and functions deployed for further surface temperature analysis.
This estimated surface temperature can be applied to urban studies, transportation studies, environmental studies, surface water studies and many more studies. The most impo…

Remote Sensing and GIS for Prediction/Forecasting

Image
How Remote Sensing and GIS can be used to Predicting Urban Growth… Remote sensing and GIS integrated with simulation model can be used for forecasting or predicting change in land surface feature. These features can be natural or man-made both can be mapped and predict for future. This predicted information can be used for future plans/monitoring of city.
In Remote sensing one can use temporal and multi spectralsatellite images. These satellite image are also provided freely by many organizations. Satellite images can be downloaded from their portal but spatial resolution of satellite images can be moderate to low.
GIS is a versatile tool, which can be used in different applications for monitoring and mapping. In GIS many mathematical and statistical tools can be integrated for analysis current scenario and future prospects. GIS has many functions, which can employ for spatial and neighborhood analysis, as well as spatial database and non spatial database in the form of vector data can …

GIS Application for Watershed and Its Delineation

Image
GIS is a very important tool that can be used in application and analysis of data. GIS provide spatial perspective platform to  analyze data. GIS allow to integrate both spatial and non-spatial (attribute) data to understand the real time scenario of earth surface. GIS is advantageous for many applications and fields to monitor and manage the real world issues. GIS functions and tools are useful to analyze spatial data and impact of surrounding environment by incorporation location based factors.
In this article application of GIS for delineation of watershed is discussed. GIS can integrate both vector data and raster data for analysis, therefore watershed based studies become very useful. Watershed A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as reservoirs, bays, and the ocean. It combines with other watersheds to form a network of rivers and streams that progressively drain into larger water areas. Topography determines where and how …
