GIS for Caves and Karst

Engineering and Hydrogeology

Click to enlarge
Cave and karst organizations use GIS to map and preserve groundwater resources.

GIS is an effective tool for all the unique engineering aspects of karst, from permitting and compliance to construction, infrastructure management, and groundwater protection.

Sinkhole collapse and its effective mitigation begin with an understanding of the potential for these occurrences and the ability to access and analyze information about karst features. Effective protection of groundwater resources in karst areas requires the incorporation of information from a variety of sources as well as the ability to model the impacts of land-use activities, flood-related events, and spill and contamination mitigation.
