A GIS for Dauphin Island

  • This outreach program will help to develop a GIS tool for future planning- similar in result to planting sea oats in the sand to increase the chance of survival of the dune

Project objectives

Project Objectives

  • Develop a Geographical Information System for the Town of Dauphin island

  • Identify and create a database of the existing infrastructure of Dauphin Island- the Town and its environmental matrix

  • Integrate the infrastructure database with a layered digital map base for analytical and management purposes

The town of dauphin island

The Town of Dauphin Island

  • Located at the the Mouth of Mobile Bay in Mobile County, Alabama

  • Is classified as a barrier island situated on the Northern Gulf of Mexico

A brief historical perspective

A Brief Historical Perspective

  • Was explored in 1699 by Sieur Pierre le Moyne d’Iberville who founded Colonie Louisiane

  • Pelican Bay on the south shore of the island the French colonists roadstead until 1718 when a hurricane closed Pelican Pass trapping 3 ships in the harbor

  • The island has suffered many devastating hurricanes that have drastically altered its shoreline- especially the transitory west end.

Expected results

Expected results

  • Create an important planning tool for the Town of Dauphin Island, not only for day to day management, but also for long range municipal planning.

  • This system will also help the Town of Dauphin Island to recover and to mitigate the adverse effects of catastrophic events (e.g, Hurricane Katrina).

Near term schedule

Near Term Schedule

  • Meetings with the Town of Dauphin Island are scheduled in November 2007 to discuss expectations and examine existing mapping & infrastructure databases.

  • Formulate a schedule for implementing upgrades to the Town’s existing data infrastructure to create a workable GIS.

  • Seek assistance & funding from State & Federal agencies to help in the cost & implementation of the GIS

  • Work with other agencies to accomplish the goals set forth.
