GIS analysis of effects of inland water channels reconstruction on a plain sample area

Abstract


Application of scientific spatial methods is inevitable in modelling monitoring of environmental elements. Use of geographic information systems enables versatile rating of monitored areas. It is especially the case for plain land areas, where state and movement of surface and underground water are variable in both time and space. We have examined the expected effects of changes in inland water canalization of Bihari Plains (EAOP-5.1.2.D/2F-2009-0007) on land use with aid of GIS. As a result, land use for monitored drainage areas has become redesignable by development of the inland water system. Optimal land use determined this way assists success of both agricultural and environmental guidelines, and development of quality of environmental resources.
