Creating Value with GIS?

This article is an adaptation of a lecture presented last February to the Benelux Branch of the Hydrographic society in Delft, The Netherlands. The main question addressed in this lecture was ‘should a hydrographic survey company utilise GIS?’. This question cannot here be unambiguously answered for all organisations but instead a few guidelines are provided to facilitate the decision-making process. GIS and hydrography do not seem to match if one looks at the limited use of GIS in hydrography in comparison to other disciplines, such as land surveying and environmental surveys. The reason for this phenomena lies perhaps in the... (read more)

GIS in the Zone

‘It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself’. (From the preface to The Sea Around Us by Rachel Carson). It has been more than fifty years since Rachel Carson first published The Sea Around Us, her foreboding best-selling book on the long-term effects of the continued pollution our oceans. However, with the huge increase in the world’s population during the intervening years... (read more)

GIS Applications for Nearshore Investigations

Site investigation surveys involving hydrographic or geotechnical data acquisition often generate high volumes of data and require handling through specialist software packages. The combination of volume of data and variety of software and formats may hinder the analysis and presentation of data. In order to attain a fluent operating system, many companies are choosing to integrate datasets and analyses through the implementation of structured data management solutions such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS). In an industry within which the majority of primary data is spatially referenced, GIS offer the capability to merge datasets based on this fundamental property. However, the... (read more)
