    Because it involves a huge amount of hydraulic engineering works, feasibility analysis of large-scale water-diversion projects is complex. Based on 3D modeling and visualization techniques, this water-diversion project simulation and evaluation system builds 3D digital geological models to aid in project development and assessment. Initial results from a project on rivers in China show the system'... View full abstract»

  • Using GIS to quantify mountains in China

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):36 - 43
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (7060 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Studying the natural resources, environment, and socioeconomic development of China's mountain areas is difficult without a clear quantification of those mountains. Quantification is also essential for developing digital mountains. Using GIS and the digital elevation model, this research effort quantified and classified China's mountains according to domestic and international criteria. View full abstract»
