GIS for the Assessment of Fresh Water Springs in Lebanon
Track: Water Resources
Author(s): Rabih Abdullah Haddad
Ever since history was recorded, Lebanon has been known and envied for its freshwater. The proposal outlines a field study in which data is gathered on a very valuable aspect of our water system. It also describes the basic methods for acquiring such data and sets out the means for its analysis using modern-day technology. It seeks to combine the strengths of satellite-based GPS with the capabilities of GIS for data analysis. Once a station is identified, specific information (discharge, nature of use, quality, etc.) will be logged from it, and this information will be input to a specially designed database that will allow for its proper management in terms of entry retrieval, presentation, and analysis.
