Shoreline Change Along the South Carolina Coast
Shoreline erosion/accretion rates were determined for the Atlantic coast extending from Tybee Island, GA. along the entire South Carolina coast to Cape Fear, NC. Approximately 130 years...

The Geographical Information System of the Brazilian Coastal Management Program
The paper discusses the coastal management program presents; and two modules which are intimately associated and integrated with the system of geoenvironment information: the Zoning and...

A Parallel Partitioning Method for Large-Scale Circuit Simulation
In this paper, we discuss a partitioning method for large-scale circuit in parallel computer simulation. The partitioning method maps the sparse and irregular circuit equations to a special...

Geographic Information Systems for Hydrologic Modeling
Geographic information system techniques provide flexible and powerful capabilities for computer processing of spatial data sets integral to flash flood forecasting. Video digitizing or...

Computerized Operation of Water and Urban Networks: From Digital Mapping to Integrated Information Systems
Advances in computer hardware and software have provided the opportunity for development of powerful technical information systems (TIS) for municipal water supply and distribution services....

Regional Flood Plain Management
A flood plain management plan for White Rock Creek in the Cities of Dallas and Plano, Texas was developed. New technologies such as three-dimensional topography, CADD, and remote sensing...

Two Case Studies of Stochastic Identification of Aquifer Hydraulic Parameters and Natural Recharge
A method to identify aquifer transmissivity, storativity and natural recharge (inverse modeling), based on a geostatistical approach is presented. The basic assumptions of the method are...

Extraction of Terrain Features from Digital Elevation Models
Digital elevation models (DEMs) are being used to determine variable inputs for hydrologic models in the Delaware River basin. Recently developed software for analysis of DEMs has been...

The Illinois GIS and Hydrologic Database
Development of the Illinois Geographic Information System (GIS) from 1983 to the present is described including the hardware configuration and ARC/INFO software. The database design at...

Application of Geographic Information Systems for Flood Risk Mapping
This paper presents an overview of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) efforts to automate flood risk mapping performed in support of the National Flood Insurance Program...

GIS Applications to the Water Resources Development Program of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The ability that a Geographic Information System (GIS) offers to quickly reference multiple data sets to an overall base map and to one another provides the potential opportunity to greatly...

Development of a GIS for the U.S. Great Lakes Shoreline
The Computer Mapping Center of the Detroit District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is developing a Geographic Information System (GIS) to contain physiographic, demographic, and...
