Applications of Geomatics in Civil Engineering
GIS Geographical Information System is a system anticipated to capture, analyze, manipulate, store, manage and present every type of geographical data. The merging of cartography, database technology, and statistical analysis is all what GIS means and is the reason why it is has been intensively used in the civil engineering niche. GIS is used more in the mechanical practice of construction industry. In construction during the preparatory phase, the issues of spatial positioning have to be solved cooperatively with the checking of the purposely and feasibility, the traffic projects are operated out and the alternative. GIS technology is gaining interest from a wide range of civil engineering disciplines owing to its potential to offer a new way of resolving environmental difficulties which could reduce costs, support multi-discipline analysis and improve quality for complex projects.
It is more than a simple digital evolution from cartography to IT based geographic data and digital mapping offers enormous benefits to research, engineering, project management and resource allocation. Useful in the private and public sector, it allows decision makers the benefit of streamlining an operation using more information more readily and quickly. It is used in town planning and waste disposal, in clean-up operations for oil spills, in building new road networks and planning infrastructure for those roads, and in natural disaster relief. Because it is fast becoming an essential tool, you will find many options to study GIS for your chosen field at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Most states have at least one university with an accredited program.
Environmental Engineering and GIS
Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus is in contrast to on-site observation. The term is applied especially to acquiring information about the Earth. Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines for example, hydrology, ecology , meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology ; it also has military, intelligence, commercial, economic, planning, and humanitarian applications, among others. In current usage, the term "remote sensing" generally refers to the use of satellite or aircraft-based sensor technologies to detect and classify objects on Earth. It includes the surface and the atmosphere and oceans , based on propagated signals e. It may be split into "active" remote sensing when a signal is emitted by a satellite or aircraft to the object and its reflection detected by the sensor and "passive" remote sensing when the reflection of sunlight is detected by the sensor.
Water Supply Systems pp Cite as. This Section applies the theory of the preceding Section to the problems of water supply systems. The first section looks at the use of GIS with environmental process models. The second section covers the use of GIS and remote sensing techniques in demand evaluation and forecasting. The third section looks at two current applications of remote sensing for water supplies; the detection of buried objects and leaks, and the assessment of water quality.
GIS and remote sensing techniques have become indispensable and potential tools for solving problems in civil engineering. Data from remote sensing mostly correlate spatial data to their attributes making them useful in this field. Different themes such as geology, terrain, drainage, and hydrology can be extracted by the use of remote sensing. Integrating the above themes helps to solve civil engineering problems faster.
30 GIS Uses in Civil Engineering
Это не смешно, Чед. Заместитель директора только что солгал директорской канцелярии. Я хочу знать. Бринкерхофф уже пожалел, что не дал ей спокойно уйти домой. Телефонный разговор со Стратмором взбесил .
В комнате тут же стало тихо. Старший дешифровщик, нескладный тип по имени Морант, не выпускавший сигареты изо рта, недоверчиво уставился на Беккера. - То есть вы хотите сказать, что эти знаки имеют множественное значение.
Но мы его упустили. - Не могу с ним не согласиться, - заметил Фонтейн. - Сомневаюсь, что Танкадо пошел бы на риск, дав нам возможность угадать ключ к шифру-убийце.
Сьюзан застыла в полутора метрах от экрана, ошеломленная увиденным, и все называла имя человека, которого любила. ГЛАВА 115 В голове Дэвида Беккера была бесконечная пустота. Я умер. Но я слышу какие-то звуки.
Иногда даже, если жертва внушительной комплекции, она не убивает вовсе. - У него было больное сердце, - сказал Фонтейн. Смит поднял брови.
