About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing | An Alternative Approach Using Remote Sensing & GIS: A Case Study at Attanagalu Oya Basin in Gampaha District, Sri Lanka | Remote sensing methods based on optical and medium resolution imagery are limited in their applicability. Although the classification and object extraction is difficult because of the imaging mechanism is quite different from multispectral images, Radar Images find special application in the flood monitoring due to the properties of all-weather, day-and-night and capability of cloud-piercing. The PALSAR data can easily to detect the water surface because of its wave length. This report presents a comprehensive methodology, based on Discrete Wavelet Transform analysis for flooded area identification & shows the effectiveness and efficiency of the developed method. The analysis results were timely provided to the central and local governments to make decision for flood disaster reduction. These analysis techniques will help to shed light on these new and existing RS and GIS technologies. Therefore, this study will be especially useful to students and it would guide the city developers, planners, and decision makers how best the remote sensing technology could be used in detecting and monitoring flood. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 68 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783847314769

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing | An Alternative Approach using Remote Sensing & GIS: A Case Study in Battaramulla, Sri Lanka | Uncontrolled rapid urban growth due to built-up area expansion over the last few decades has created critical problems to urban planners. Therefore, it is worth to identify spatial distribution pattern of built-up area in a town. Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) provide a great potential for urban data collection & spatial analysis and not much academic literature exists on how to best utilize these technologies for urban studies. Traditional approaches to data collection and analysis no longer adequate to provide updated information for urban planners. This book, therefore, introduces alternative techniques for data collection, updating, detection of built-up area change and unauthorised constructions, identifying urban spatial distribution pattern considering built-up area density. New GIS spatial analysis techniques such as weighted mean centre and spatial autocorrelation tools introduced. These analysis techniques should help to shed light on the field of urban planning, and should be especially useful to students and professionals in urban planning or anyone else who may be considering utilizing RS and GIS for urban spatial structure analysis. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 134 gr | 88 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783846511367

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing | Use of thermal remote sensing as an alternative to measure surface temperature: A Case Study of Colombo, Sri Lanka | Surface temperature in urban areas of the Western province in Sri Lanka has been dramatically increased during recent years. The traditional method used to measure the temperature in Sri Lanka is ground based observation and it only reflects the thermal conditions of local area around the station. There are only two ground-based observation stations located in Colombo urban area and their findings are not adequate to analyze the spatial patterns of temperatures and surface temperature levels in entire Colombo urban areas. This book suggests an alternative methodology to find the spatial variability of surface temperature in Colombo urban areas using thermal (LANDSAT) remote sensing and would help the interesting parties to re-think the use of remote sensing in the field of spatial sciences. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 91 gr | 220x150x3 mm | 56 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783845443133

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing | A GIS based Technology, Case study, Colombo, Sri Lanka | Making decisions, especially when it affects the wider society, we need scientific tools to process the available data. GIS is one such tool of decision making. Application of GIS in the field of Urban Planning, in order to make the optimal decision, is being attempted in this study. Our accurate decision in planning process leads to the successful completion of our plan, while a small error in our decision leads to the entire failure of the plan. Many urban development plans in Sri Lanka unfortunately meet the end of failure or many are abandoned before completion. This is partially due to the improper identification of the prevailing condition of the land area. For a plan to be successfully implemented in an urban area, where the land use, human processes and physical setting are more complex than in a rural area, a prior identification of the vulnerable and desirable regions is a crucial task. Then only the best decisions can be made to treat the vulnerable areas and to preserve the desirable areas. Hence the objective of this study is to develop a GIS-based technology in the identification of vulnerable and desirable regions in urban areas. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 88 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783845471211

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing | From 1981 to 2010 | Changes in extreme weather and climate events have significant impacts and are among the most serious challenges to society in coping with a changing climate. Since the extreme weather events are becoming a frequent and hitting issue for livings and non-livings. World Meteorological Organization (WMO) emphasizes the importance of the studies relevant to the above stated phenomena and motivates the countries providing necessary indices and guidelines on analyzing these weather extremes. Sri Lanka is also undergoing these weather extremes and among them severe rainfall hazards are one of the frequent weather hazards in the country. These events incur vast damages to many sectors. Therefore it is a timely important need to identify the spatial and temporal dynamics of rainfall extremes over the country to conclude the frequency and the intensity of extreme rainfall events. This also identifies the most vulnerable areas to these extremes and analyzes the temporal and spatial patterns identifying the significance of the trends. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 128 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783659880438

About this Item: Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: VDM Verlag Dr. Müller | An Alternative Approach for Demarcating the Appropriate Land Use Zoning in Urban Areas: A Case Study of Colombo, Sri Lanka | Land Use Control Zones and Regulations are some of the important aspects in the urban Management. However, Most of the Municipalities in the Developing world, demarcate land use zones based on very limited information or sometime in a very arbitrary manner. The main intention of this book is to validate the Potential Surface Analysis which has been introduced to demarcate the socio-economic boundaries rather than the arbitrary land use control zones for urban land uses, using Multivariate Analysis Techniques and Geographical Information Systems. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was the main Multivariate Techniques which used to extracted the main components of the socio- economic layers. GIS has been applied for the extraction of the common area among the different data layers. Further, attention has been given to some Urban Morphological aspects of the city of Colombo; Ethnic Segregation, Spatial Structure of the Occupational groups and the Filtering Process. This book may be very useful for those who are engaged in Urban Management activities such as Urban Planners, Urban Designers and Decision Makers. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 156 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783639372724

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was the main Multivariate Techniques which used to extracted the main components of the socio- economic layers. GIS has been applied for the extraction of the common area among the different data layers. Further, attention has been given to some Urban Morphological aspects of the city of Colombo; Ethnic Segregation, Spatial Structure of the Occupational groups and the Filtering Process. This book may be very useful for those who are engaged in Urban Management activities such as Urban Planners, Urban Designers and Decision Makers. 156 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # 9783639372724

About this Item: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, Germany, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Aufl.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Uncontrolled rapid urban growth due to built-up area expansion over the last few decades has created critical problems to urban planners. Therefore, it is worth to identify spatial distribution pattern of built-up area in a town. Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) provide a great potential for urban data collection spatial analysis and not much academic literature exists on how to best utilize these technologies for urban studies. Traditional approaches to data collection and analysis no longer adequate to provide updated information for urban planners. This book, therefore, introduces alternative techniques for data collection, updating, detection of built-up area change and unauthorised constructions, identifying urban spatial distribution pattern considering built-up area density. New GIS spatial analysis techniques such as weighted mean centre and spatial autocorrelation tools introduced. These analysis techniques should help to shed light on the field of urban planning, and should be especially useful to students and professionals in urban planning or anyone else who may be considering utilizing RS and GIS for urban spatial structure analysis.

About this Item: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Aufl.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Surface temperature in urban areas of the Western province in Sri Lanka has been dramatically increased during recent years. The traditional method used to measure the temperature in Sri Lanka is ground based observation and it only reflects the thermal conditions of local area around the station. There are only two ground-based observation stations located in Colombo urban area and their findings are not adequate to analyze the spatial patterns of temperatures and surface temperature levels in entire Colombo urban areas. This book suggests an alternative methodology to find the spatial variability of surface temperature in Colombo urban areas using thermal (LANDSAT) remote sensing and would help the interesting parties to re-think the use of remote sensing in the field of spatial sciences.

About this Item: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Changes in extreme weather and climate events have significant impacts and are among the most serious challenges to society in coping with a changing climate. Since the extreme weather events are becoming a frequent and hitting issue for livings and non-livings. World Meteorological Organization (WMO) emphasizes the importance of the studies relevant to the above stated phenomena and motivates the countries providing necessary indices and guidelines on analyzing these weather extremes. Sri Lanka is also undergoing these weather extremes and among them severe rainfall hazards are one of the frequent weather hazards in the country. These events incur vast damages to many sectors. Therefore it is a timely important need to identify the spatial and temporal dynamics of rainfall extremes over the country to conclude the frequency and the intensity of extreme rainfall events. This also identifies the most vulnerable areas to these extremes and analyzes the temporal and spatial patterns identifying the significance of the trends. Seller Inventory # KNV9783659880438
