Presentation Transcript

  1. GIS and Solid Waste Site assessment of illegal dump sites using GIS!

  2. 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

  3. 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. Waste Area Dimensions

  4. 0.11 526 4.0 3.0 Disposal Site Characteristics

  5. Locate the site. Verify the property the site is located on. Identify the responsible party. iOwner: Greg Garbage & Donna Dump Mail: PO Box 123 Trash City Site: 999 Darn Ln. Refuse Village Identify the Responsible Party

  6. Access additional Information from various shape files Soil Mariposa Formation … Precipitation 27 – 35 in … Floodplain Not in floodplain …

  7. Risk Assessment Put the dot on the map

  8. Risk Assessment Put the dot on the map Measure to the dwellings

  9. Risk Assessment Put the dot on the map Measure to the dwellings Measure to well and creek

  10. Risk Assessment Put the dot on the map Measure to the dwellings Measure to well and creek Add contour lines for the relief

  11. Slope The GIS software calculates the pitch of the slope

  12. Slope The GIS software calculates the pitch of the slope iThe dump site is located on a slope with a 15.1 to 20 ° pitch

  13. Risk Assessment Put the dot on the map NO   340’, 900’ and 1430’   NO  (creek) Maps are enclosed! YES NO Measure to the dwellings Measure to well and creek Add contour lines for the relief

  14. Visualization of Dump Sites Include maps with the Site Assessment Form

  15. Visualization of Dump Sites If appropriate include a 3D view of the dump site. Ω View

  16. Remediation of Illegal Dump Sites Software requirements...Tools applied... • GPS Unit Pathfinder Office, ArcPad or TerraSync • Select (attribute) ArcView • Measure ArcView • Slope Calculation 3D-Analyst • 3D visualization 3D-Analyst
