The Use of GIS Technology in Source Water Assessment
MetadataShow full item record
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology has been an invaluable component of the Atlanta Regional Commission's efforts in the Source Water Assessment Project. In fact, GIS has been involved in nearly every stage of the project, including watershed delineation, mapping of potential pollutant sources, generation of working maps for field verification, and visual and spatial analysis. By utilizing the data integration, visualization, and analysis capabilities of GIS to complete the Metro Atlanta SWAP, a foundation is being created for future watershed protection efforts in the Atlanta region.
