GIS in Subsurface MEC Investigation and Removal
Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Randall Clark
As the population continues to grow and expand on to former military range lands, MECs have become an increasing human health and safety risk. As work in the MEC field has progressed to meet this risk, it has become increasingly more complex and challenging. In response, GIS is playing a greater role in managing MEC projects, from the utilization of GIS/Global Position System (GPS) enabled handheld data collection to ArcGIS for data management, analysis display, and map production.
