Specification of the structure of land in hard-to-rich areas of the Republic of Iraq on remote sensing data

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.7

[download]

The paper discusses the problem of using QuickBird space images to provide land cadastralsurveys and regulations regarding the protection and rational use of land under specific conditions: hard-to-rich areas, limited funds, time and staff for the inspection and monitoring of large territories. Legal, technical and technological questions concerning the use of QuickBird im ages and geoinformation technologies for the specified purposes are analysed in the work.

Thematic mapping of avalanche-threatened areas

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.15

[download]

Providing avalanche-threatened areas with modern thematic data mapping is an urgent task. It w i  ll allow us to predict and prevent catastrophic consequences of snow avalanche s. The  purposeof this paper is to create a set of thematic raster maps of Polonyna Borzhava mountain ridge,including a physical map, a map of relative avalanche hazards, and a map of avalanche paths,on the basis of analysing certain morphometric and environmental factors. Modelling and analysingmorphometric parameters of the ridge surface were implemented, and they were represente das factors of avalanche occurrence. The areas with consistent snow avalanche occurrencein the Polonyna Borzhava mountain ridge were allocated by combining cartographic material,re mote sensing data, statistical meteorological data and some geomorphometric data about thesurface in one unified geographic information system. Thematic mapping of snow avalanches of Polonyna Borzhava ridge has been implemented in the scale of 1:50000. The resulting thematicmaps can be used when developing winter tourist routes.

Analysis of transaction price of undevelopedreal estate  of Kołobrzeg with the use of GIS technology

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.27

[download]

The expansion of geographic information systems contributes to the development of an information society that increasingly uses geoinformation data in all areas of life. GIS also enters the economic and scientific realm of the real estate market, slowly displacing analogue price registers and real estate values. With the use of GIS tools, many issues in this area (e.g. sales / purchase, rental, average sales prices) can be presented on maps, and the wide database provides many possibilities for carrying out a variety of analyses. The aim of this article is to use the selected GIS technology to analyse the value of real estate in Kołobrzeg. Using the secondary data from the price and property register spanning the years 2013–2016 the value of undeveloped land has been analysed. The analysis was presented by two different methods: cartodiagram and cartogram, and then the results were compared and interpreted. The maps that were developed during the process of analysis provide accessible information about the distribution of real estate values for property valuers as well as potential buyers and sellers.

Determining criteria for optimal site selection for solar power plants

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.39

Site selection is one of the basic vital decisions in the start-up process, expansion or relocation of businesses of all kinds. Construction of a new industrial system in the form of solar photovoltaic power plant is a major long-term investment, and in this sense determining the location is critical point on the road to success or failure of industrial system. One of the main objectives in industrial site selection is finding the most appropriate site with desired conditions defined by the selection criteria. This work suggests how to define and classify particular criteria considered for solar PV farm siting. Multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) is proposed as a method to process available technical information to support decisions in many fields, especially in environmental decision making. In some cases, due to the lack of reliable information on the impact of various natural factors on the economic activity related to the use of land resources, the method of expert assessments can be used. The peculiarity of this method is the lack of empirical evidence of the influence of a given factor on the final result of decision-making. In this case the value of separate factor is judged by experts. When applying this method, expert groups are formed of leading specialists, the main influence factors is established, a questionnaire and a scale of criteria are compiled. Level of reliability of the results is assessed by the coefficient of concordance.

Comparison of selected methods of interactive geovisualization on the basis of a monuments register in Poland

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.55

[download]

Visualization of objects on interactive maps usually completes a design process which is preceded by collecting and processing of data. The same applies to the list of monuments (objects of cultural heritage), as its compilation requires both field and office works. The aim of the paper was to evaluate if registers monuments maintained by Polish communes (gminas) can be presented with Google Fusion Tables and Leaflet software, the tools that are specifically used to provide and visualize data. Successive stages of creating a communal register of monuments in Poland – from surveying the objects of heritage in the field to preparing their address cards and creating electronic map application – were presented in the paper. In conclusion, it was proved that a web mapping service, in which text description and photographic documentation of presented objects are complemented with data about their location, can perfectly supplement the communal list of objects of cultural heritage compiled as a standard paper address cards.

Methodological and technological aspects of 3D modelling of historic memorials and statues in order to document and preserve objects of cultural heritage

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.67

[download]

The article deals with the main aspects and contemporary methods in 3D modelling of historical memorial structures in order to preserve objects of cultural heritage. Results of experiments using various combinations of software and technology have been presented: geographic information systems, ground laser scanning and computer graphics programs for rendering. On the basis of comparison between these methods and technologies, conclusions have been drawn, and recommendations for their application in the field of heritage preservation have been given.

Rural land management in Bangladesh: problems and prospects

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.79

[download]

Based on a theoretical discussion from global perspective the paper describes present rural land administration and management structure in Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a land scarce country with high-density population. As most of the people live in rural areas and depend on agriculture and allied activities, proper rural land management is crucial. The paper presents an overall view of rural land management in Bangladesh and reveals that the current land management system is almost obsolete. Land administration system is conventional and characterised by inefficiency and corruption. Some of the major problems facing the country in managing rural land are: outdated and inadequate land related policies and land laws, inequality of land ownership and landlessness, as well as increasing conflicts over land. The study also looks at some potential measures taken by the government to improve the country’s land administration and management system. Finally the paper provides a set of guidelines to deal with present land management challenges.

Developing “green” public spaces as a path to urban revitalisation of residential-industrial zones

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15576/GLL/2017.4.95

[download]

Optimization of the urban structure, as well as modernization of city districts as a result of changes in the functional use of the urban territory, are currently coming to the fore among research topics for most cities in Eastern Europe. In the present article, as seen in the example of the Pidzamche district of the city of Lviv (Ukraine), attention was drawn to the need of revitalising the already urbanized, often postindustrial areas, which had lost their original function over time. The developmental impetus for this area may arrive by way of “green” public spaces project, which will affect the “quality of life” for the local residents, through: performing recreational and leisure functions, raising the aesthetic value of the place, as well as potentially constituting so-called “green corridors”, connecting individual parts of the discussed area.
