Geochemical Anomaly and Mineral Prospectivity Mapping in GIS, Volume 11 (Handbook of Exploration and Environmental Geochemistry) application of gis in bathymetric mapping of gosainkunda lake
The book documents and explains, in three parts, geochemical anomaly and mineral prospectivity mapping by using a geographic information system (GIS). Part I reviews and couples the concepts of (a) mapping geochemical anomalies and mineral prospectivity and (b) spatial data models, management and operations in a GIS. Part II demonstrates GIS-aided and GIS-based techniques for analysis of robust thresholds in mapping of geochemical anomalies. Part III explains GIS-aided and GIS-based techniques for spatial data analysis and geo-information sybthesis for conceptual and predictive modeling of mineral prospectivity. Because methods of geochemical anomaly mapping and mineral potential mapping are highly specialized yet diverse, the book explains only methods in which GIS plays an important role. The book avoids using language and functional organization of particular commercial GIS software, but explains, where necessary, GIS functionality and spatial data structures appropriate to problems in geochemical anomaly mapping and mineral potential mapping. Because GIS-based methods of spatial data analysis and spatial data integration are quantitative, which can be complicated to non-numerate readers, the book simplifies explanations of mathematical concepts and their applications so that the methods demonstrated would be useful to professional geoscientists, to mineral explorationists and to research students in fields that involve analysis and integration of maps or spatial datasets. The book provides adequate illustrations for more thorough explanation of the various concepts. *explains GIS functionality and spatial datastructures appropriate regardless of particular GIS software is in use*simplifies explanation of mathematical concepts and application*illustrated for more thorough explanation of concepts

Remote Sensing & GIS in Glacier Mapping application of gis in bathymetric mapping of gosainkunda lake
This book is an expression of the myriad ways in which the range of Remote Sensing and GIS techniques can be applied to the mapping of glaciers. Glaciers are characterized by the variability of different types of snow and ice deposited in accumulation and ablation areas. Remote Sensing techniques like Digital image processing of satellite data provide an effective solution for categorizing the various materials on glaciers depending upon their spectral reflectance.Visual interpretation in glaciated terrain suffers mainly because of less understanding highly variable material composition and processes operative over glaciers. This sometimes leads to biased interpretation based on little knowledge which leads to wrong interpretation. Inventory of the glaciers is of prime interest to evaluate the nature of changes in glacier dimensions and also to establish relationship between climatic change and dynamics of glaciers. As glaciological studies in high altitude terrains are very difficult by conventional methods. Remote Sensing data with GIS techniques is used to mapping and monitoring of permanent snowfields and glacier covered area.

Gis & rs based fertilizer suitability mapping for wheat,Ethiopia application of gis in bathymetric mapping of gosainkunda lake
Fertilizer suitability mapping is the way of determining nutrients demanded by specific crop type on the basis of soil sample testing results. It is a very important method for modern precision agriculture to increase fertilizer use efficiency and environmental friendliness. In order to make efficient fertilizer application for wheat at Lume Watershed, the book tried to map the plant macro nutrients, physical land suitability and diammonium phosphate (DAP) suitability for wheat. Starting from soil sample collection to final map, standard laboratory analysis methods plus GIS and remote sensing tools were used. Because both potassium and nitrogen showed non-significant variation within the watershed, fertilizer suitability map was only made for phosphorous variability. The DAP requirement for wheat was determined as the deference of phosphorous critical level for wheat from initial phosphorus level in the soil. Finally by applying Krignig interpolation DAP suitability map was prepared for wheat. The DAP requirement map of the area reveals that about 51.38%, 20.25%, 18.40% and 8.43% need 50 to75 kg/ha, 75 to 100kg/ha, 25 to 50kg/ha and greater than 100kg/ha respectively.

GIS and Remote Sensing for Mapping Species Spatial Distributions application of gis in bathymetric mapping of gosainkunda lake
Relatively little attention is currently given to the issue of biodiversity loss in savannah ecosystems and only a limited range of methods have been developed for the assessment and management of this issue. The aim of this study was to contribute to a better understanding of dry land woody species biodiversity and to test if woody species biodiversity assessment can be performed using remote sensing and geostatistics. The research was undertaken on an experimental site in the Serowe area, Botswana. A total of 169 sample plots were collected and analyzed. An importance value index (IVI), which is the summation of relative frequency, relative density and relative basal area, was used to select the dominant species of the area. The applicability of IKONOS imagery data and geostatistical techniques for savannah woody species biodiversity assessment were tested. A total of 33 woody species, which belong to 25 genera and 18 families, were identified. Two vegetation types were identified: dense savannah (SAD) and open savannah (SAO). The tree stems density was significantly higher (t-test, t=-4.39, d.f=167, p>0.001) in SAD than in SAO. According to the IVI criteria, the dominant species.
