GIS improves decision making

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Geographic Information System (GIS) allows rapid and flexible assessments to produce easy-to-interpret visual product as an output of a digital or hardcopy map. An Australian coal industry research project, investigating practical methodology for assessing mining subsidence impacts, reveals that a GIS can be used in very different ways. The project involves several industry participants in demonstrating the best methods of adapting and using GIS technology. The project enables researchers to develop and demonstrate practical decision support methodology for assessing mining subsidence impacts on natural features. Researchers reveal that GIS in subsidence impact management can be used for storage and management of spatial data related to mine workings and the associated environment, site characterization and identification susceptible features, and assessment of the extent and magnitude of subsidence impacts.
