GIS and Solid Waste

Site assessment of illegal dump sites using GIS!


Site assessment form

The State asks for the following information:

(among other)

Waste area(s) dimensions

Soil Type

Mean annual precipitation

Is waste area within a flood plain? (Y/N)   

Slope pitch

Show detailed site map(s)

Site Assessment Form


Waste area dimensions

GPS the outline of the dump.

The GIS software calculates the surface area, perimeter etc.

Estimate the depth of the dump and calculate the rough volume of trash to be removed.
