GIS for Ordnance/Explosives Remediation, Formerly Used Defense Site, Camp Beale
Track: Defense and Intelligence
Author(s): Jeremy Gessaro
The Ordnance and Explosives (OE) detection process for the Formerly Used Defense Site at Camp Beale, California currently employs a combination of Geophysical, Global Positioning Systems, and GIS technologies. First, this paper will explain how these technologies work together to detect subterranean OE, specifically unexploded ordnance. Secondly, this paper will outline GIS applications for OE site archive research analysis, narrowing and sectoring the OE search areas, management and analysis of OE field operations, OE statistical analysis and prediction, 3D spatial analysis, general OE program management, and distributed GIS access for management and the public.
