Creation of geodatabase and geoprocessing methodologies for geologic and hydrologic appraisals of agricultural water withdrawal permits
MetadataShow full item record
Water resources management in Georgia has become increasingly complex. Recent drought conditions as well as increased agricultural water withdrawals in the southwestern portion of the state have caused influent stream conditions. In order to mitigate further injurious environmental and economic effects, location-specific regulations and current geospatial datasets are manipulated in ArcGIS ® surface and groundwater geodatabases and process models. This research develops methodologies for joining and relating spatial and temporal data using the Arc Hydro data model for surface water evaluations and geodatabase functionality for groundwater evaluations. The hydrologic features contained within these hydrologic information systems are employed as inputs to the process models, which are in turn used to create appraisal forms.
