by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

There is an increasing need for exploiting spatial information for effective management of enterprise in virtually every industry, in the competitive world. Banks and Financial Institutions thrive by the financial services that they offer like, a variety of loans, credit cards, etc. This paper proposes ways and means through which an integrated GIS approach would enable banks to help their customers serve better.


Whitepaper: A GIS/LIS Approach for Study on Suitability of Shallow Foundation at Southern Chennai, India

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

The tedious bore-log studies or costly specific subsoil investigation techniques demand the necessity of a GIS / LIS based database system. This paper presents a synoptic analysis of the safe bearing capacities of the soil in southern part of south Chennai of India and subsequent digitization at various depths. Using Arcview/ArcInfo, the iso-standard penetration number (SPTN)-StrengthTest is integrated with the base map as well as the generated/interpolated thematic maps to obtain user-friendly Foundation-Suitability Maps, whose validity is verified in the site upto a high precision accuracy.

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

This paper is based on the project ""Municipal Level GIS for Resource Mapping and Planning using GIS and GPS"". Main objective of the assignment was to prepare a GIS based Digital Database and Preparation of a Resource Maps as a planning and resource management tool in accordance with the provisions made in the Local Self Governance Act and Regulations.


Whitepaper: Fleet Management: A GPS-GIS Integrated Approach

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite system that provides highly accurate location with the use of special GPS receivers and their augmentations. This accurate GPS data is of limited use by itself, unless it is coupled with a powerful visualization tool like the Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The GIS is a widely accepted visualization tool that presents data in a graphic form, which is a convenient and effective means of communicating complex information.

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

A state-of-the-art asset management technology for road and railway transportation systems, with special focus on conditions in India has been developed by MaxSys Engineering Solutions Inc. (MaxSys) and LEA Associates South Asia (LASA). The technology consists of, GIS based digital maps, high-resolution satellite imagery, digital elevation models based on satellite imagery and appropriate data base management system and GPS based Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) hardware units.


Whitepaper: GIS Database Management for Planning of Hydel Power Generation

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

A methodology for using GIS database for site location and preparing layout for transmission lines for Hydel Power Systemis described in this paper. The present method of surveying and investigation has certain limitations and it is not cost effective either. FCC images that are obtained from IRS-1B/1D satellite are used to study the geographical features of the region for estimating the Hydro Power potential of the area.


Whitepaper: An Integrated Approach for Banking GIS

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

To survive and succeed, banks are looking for ways to increase customer satisfaction and retention, while containing costs, improving efficiency and maximizing return on their technology investments. To accomplish these measures, banks need to integrate disparate systems, need to adopt advanced technologies like Geographic Information System (GIS), develop more effective marketing programs and overcome the difficulties of translating strategy into actions.


Whitepaper: GPS-Aided-INS for Mobile Mapping in Precision Agriculture

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

The increasing accuracy and reliability of GAINS has opened door of Mobile Mapping Solution (MMS) in Precision Agriculture. The Global Positioning System (GPS) provides the positioning, velocity, and timing data from the satellite signals in the line of sight. And the Inertial Navigation System (INS) maintains the availability of the navigation solution during GPS outages that are due to interference, jamming, etc.


Whitepaper: Implementing Internet GIS With Java Based Client/Server Environment

by GISdevelopment.netJan 01, 2008

Data pertaining to spatial attributes in a GIS can be efficiently managed with any relational database management system (RDBMS). Java’s open, platform-independent, object-oriented design is an ideal platform for mapping and geographic information system (GIS) solution for developers. Extensible Markup Language (XML) standards can be used to describe and exchange map data between applications. It describes the salient features of a spatial database that was developed by integrating thematic layers stored as feature datasets in MySQL-Relational Database Model into a Java based Client/Server environment.
