Microcomputer Implementation of Geographic Information Systems
With the more recent development of high performance microcomputers, efforts have been made to adapt. Information Systems (GIS) software to microcomputers for application to a wide variety...

Simulation of Salt Behavior Using In Situ Response
This paper presents an improved method for simulating the salt behavior. In this method, the governing equations are normalized to the creep function, which represents the transient and...

Rationalizing Land Records, Mapping, Planning
The way land records are kept and used in cities and counties is outmoded. The same is true for base mapping and land use planning. The computer is helping streamline all three, as is...

Orthophotoquad Mapping Program for Alaska
The U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the lead civilian mapping agency in the United States and is responsible for creating and maintaining numerous map series. In Alaska the standard...

Geographic and Spatial Data Management and Modeling
A geographic information system is a computer based technology for storing and using spatial data. Many alternative methodologies exist for managing the three general types of spatial...

The Use of Thematic Mapper Data for the Identification and Analysis of Small Island Land Covers: The Case of Block Island
This paper describes the classification (unsupervised) of a portion of the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) scene covering Block Island, Rhode Island and surrounding waters. The Landsat system...

Development of a Computerized Wetlands Mapping Data Base for Use in Section 404 Jurisdictional Determinatins in San Francisco Bay
Development and habitat alteration in the San Francisco Bay-Delta system have placed the remaining wetlands in jeopardy. The Bay-Delta wetlands will be mapped in a joint project of the...

Remote Sensing of Mangrove Areas on the Brazilian Coast
Remote sensing techniques are compared when applied on the survey of mangrove areas. The use of LANDSAT MSS scenes from channels 5 and 7, processed by interactive analyzer, allowed the...

Litigating the Invisible Boundaries of Tidelands and Wetlands
The author urges uniformity in standards for establishing the two invisible lines that are dominant in coastal law, i. e. , the main high water line and the wetlands line. A high degree...

Application of Geographic Information System for Hydrologic Investigation
The Illinois Department of Energy and Natural Resources is developing a geographic information system (GIS) under the federally funded Lands Unsuitable for Mining Program (LUMP). This...

Modern and Historic Mapping of Tidal Marshlands of San Francisco Bay, California
In this work, studies were made of two marshland sites shown on the old maps that presently remain subject to tidal action. For each site, historic maps dating from the 1850's were accurately...

Computer Links Facilities Management, Mapping
Computerizing of map drafting alone was not cost effective, so electric and gas utilities are using their systems to aid in managing their facilities. This article is a case history of...

REMOTS Sediment Profiling at the Field Verification Program
Disposal of uncapped highly polluted Black Rock Harbor muds took place in April-May 1983 at a buoy located within the Central Long Island Sound Disposal Area in 62-66 feet of water. Baseline...
