The interest group and corporation in Korea have cultivated Suaeda grass in the source area every year as a plan to prevent the yellow dust due to Chinese desertification. It needs the afforestation analysis about the research area to plan the greenbelt environment development in the region of yellow dust origin. Thus, this research analyzed the greenbelt environment based on Landsat 5 TM satellite image and Landsat 8 image to grasp and analyze the present of greenbelt environment development. And this research analyzed the inside of the salt desert to understand the detailed greenbelt environment and vegetation index. As a result, it represents that the afforestation was accomplished efficiently between 2009 and 2011, while the greenbelt area was decreased rapidly and bare soil was increased between 2011 and 2013. Through these results, we could recognize that it is in trouble about the greenbelt environment development after 2011 and it needs the project implementation using satellite image when the next afforestation project is planned henceforth.

HAZUS-MH is a GIS-based computer program that estimates potential losses from multi-hazard phenomena: earthquakes, floods and hurricanes. With respect to seismic disaster, characteristics of a hypothetical or actual earthquake are entered into HAZUS. Then HAZUS estimates the intensity of ground shaking and calculates the correspondent losses. In this study, HAZUS was used as a part of the preparations of the future seismic events at a coastal plant facility area. To reliably characterize the target facility area, many geotechnical characteristics data were synthesized from the existing site investigation reports. And the buildings and facilities were sorted by analyzing their material and structural characteristics. In particular, the study area was divided into 17 blocks taking into account the situation of both land development and facility distribution. The ground conditions of blocks were categorized according to the site classification scheme for earthquake-resistant design. Moreover, seismic fragility curves of a main facilities were derived based on the numerical modeling and were incorporated into the database in HAZUS. The results estimated in the study area using HAZUS showed various seismic damage and loss potentials depending on site conditions and structural categories. This case study verified the usefulness of the HAZUS for estimating earthquake losses in coastal facility areas.

Several studies have been performed globally on the construction of integrated systems that are available for the integrated use of 3D geographic information on terrain and oceans. Research on 3D geographic modeling is also facilitated by the application of Lidar surveying, which enables the highly accurate realization of 3D geographic information for a wide area of land. In addition, a few marine research organizations have been conducting investigations and surveying diverse ocean information for building and applying MGIS(Marine Geographic Information System). However, the construction of integrated geographic information systems for both terrain and oceans has certain limitations resulting from the inconsistency in reference systems and datum levels between two data. Therefore, in this investigation, integrated geospatial information has been realized by using a combined topographical map, after matching the reference systems and datum levels by integration of airborne Lidar data and multi-beam echo sounder data. To verify the accuracy of the integrated geospatial information data, ten randomly selected samples from study areas were selected and analyzed. The results show that the 10 analyzed data samples have an RMSE of 0.46m, which meets the IHO standard(0.5m) for depth accuracy of hydrographic surveys.

Lee, Jeong-Young ; Jin, Gi-Ho ; Ha, Sung-Ryong ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 40~51
DOI : 10.11108/kagis.2014.17.4.040
This study aims to investigate urban inundation considering building footprints based on dual-drainage scheme. For this purpose, LiDAR data is cultivated to generate two original data set in terms of DEM with
meter and building layer of the study drainage area in Seoul and then the building layer is overlapped as vector polygon with the mesh data with the same size as DEM. Then, terrain data for modeling were re-sampled to reduce resolution as
meters. As results, the simulated depth without considering building footprints has a tendency to underestimate the inundation depth compared to observed data analized by CCTV imagery. Otherwise, the simulation result considering building footprints revealed definitely higher fitness. The difference of inundation depth came from the variation of inundation volume which was relevant to inundation extent. If the building footprints are enlarged, the possible inundation depth is increased, which results in being inundation depth higher because hydrological conditions such as rainfall depth are conservational. Otherwise, according to comparison of inundation extents, there were no significant difference but the case of considering building footprint was revealed slightly higher fitness. Thus, it is concluded that the considering building footprint for inundation analysis of urban watershed should be required to improve simulation accuracy synthetically.

Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 52~68
DOI : 10.11108/kagis.2014.17.4.052
In this study, we investigated the seasonal variation of SST(Sea Surface Temperature) and thermal effluents estimated by using Landsat-7 ETM+ around the Kori Nuclear Power Plant for 10 years(2000~2010). Also, we analyzed the direction and range of thermal effluents dispersion by the tidal current and tide. The results are as follows, First, we figured out the algorithm to estimate SST through the linear regression analysis of Landsat DN(Digital Number) and NOAA SST. And then, the SST was verified by compared with the in situ measurement and NOAA SST. The determination coefficient is 0.97 and root mean square error is
. Second, the SST distribution of Landsat-7 estimated by linear regression equation showed
in spring, and
in summer and fall. The difference of between SST and thermal effluents temperature is
except for the summer season. The difference of SST is up to
in August. There is hardly any dispersion of thermal effluents in August. When it comes to the spread range of thermal effluents, the rise range of more than
in the sea surface temperature showed up to 7.56km from east to west and 8.43km from north to south. The maximum spread area was
. It is expected that the findings of this study will be used as the foundational data for marine environment monitoring on the area around the nuclear power plant.

Carbon stocks of NFI plots can be accurately estimated using field survey information. However, an accurate estimation of carbon stocks in other unsurveyed sites is very difficult. In order to fill this gap, various spatial information can be used as an ancillary data. In South Korea, there is the 1:5,000 forest type map that was produced by digital air-photo interpretation and field survey. Because this map contains very detailed forest information, it can be used as the high-quality spatial data for estimating carbon stocks. In this study, we compared three upscaling methods based on the 1:5,000 forest type map and 5th national forest inventory data. Map algebra(method 1), RK(Regression Kriging)(method 2), and GWR(Geographically Weighted Regression)(method 3) were applied to estimate forest carbon stock in Chungcheong-nam Do and Daejeon metropolitan city. The range of carbon stocks from method 2(1.39~138.80 tonC/ha) and method 3(1.28~149.98 tonC/ha) were more similar to that of previous method(1.56~156.40 tonC/ha) than that of method 1(0.00~93.37 tonC/ha). This result shows that RK and GWR considering spatial autocorrelation can show spatial heterogeneity of carbon stocks. We carried out paired t-test for carbon stock data using 186 sample points to assess estimation accuracy. As a result, the average carbon stocks of method 2 and field survey method were not significantly different at p

Kwon, Soon-Duk ; Joo, Woo-Yeong ; Kim, Won-Kyung ; Kim, Jong-Ho ; Kim, Eun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 86~100
DOI : 10.11108/kagis.2014.17.4.086
The purposes of this study are to provide a guideline for the suitability of wind farm facilities in forest lands and to suggest improvement plans of policies and systems to minimize the damage of forest lands. First, we implemented a literature review and field surveys to examine and select factors for the suitability of wind farm facilities in forest lands. Spatial database for selected location factors of wind farm facilities in forest lands was constructed to develop the suitability model for locating wind farm facilities focusing on Gangwon-do. Data used in this study include wind power resource, legal mountainous preserved area, forest roads, developed areas, forest class, and other spatial data. In order to find specific-sized potential areas for a certain number of wind farm turbines, we used block statistics and focal statistics methods. As a result, the areas for potential wind farm locations were 1,261ha from a block statistics method and 1,411ha from a focal statistics method. Based on the outputs of this research, it is required to make an urgent solution for the prevention of forest disaster and to prepare reduction measures for the destruction of ridge landscape.

Spatial events are predictable using data mining classification algorithms. Decision trees have been used as one of representative classification algorithms. And they were normally used in the classification tasks that have label class values. However since using rule ranking methods, spatial prediction have been applied in the spatial prediction problems. This paper compared rule ranking methods for the spatial prediction application using a decision tree. For the comparison experiment, C4.5 decision tree algorithm, and rule ranking methods such as Laplace, M-estimate and m-branch were implemented. As a spatial prediction case study, landslide which is one of representative spatial event occurs in the natural environment was applied. Among the rule ranking methods, in the results of accuracy evaluation, m-branch showed the better accuracy than other methods. However in case of m-brach and M-estimate required additional time-consuming procedure for searching optimal parameter values. Thus according to the application areas, the methods can be selectively used. The spatial prediction using a decision tree can be used not only for spatial predictions, but also for causal analysis in the specific event occurrence location.
An Analysis of Variation of Spatial Accessibility Pattern Based on 2SFCA : A Case Study of Welfare Facilities for the Aged in Gumi City
Ahn, Jae-Seong ; Kim, Lee-Bae ; Park, Mi-Ra ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 112~128
DOI : 10.11108/kagis.2014.17.4.112
This study aims to analyse the variation of spatial accessibility pattern based on 2SFCA(2 Step Floating Catchment Area) by changing its parameter values. The general pattern of the result of 2SFCA analysis shows that the spatial accessibility value is decreased by growing base population, while the spatial accessibility value is increased by growing PPR(Provider to Population Ratio). The three characteristics of local pattern in the Gumi City are founded by cluster analysis on the sensitive analysis procedure. Firstly, the variation of the accessibility values is insignificant in the fringe area of the Gumi City. Secondly, the variation of the accessibility values is diverse in the surrounding area of the welfare facilities. Especially, Dong areas are more sensitive to PPR variation, while others are more sensitive to base population variation. Thirdly, the larger parameter values, the more the spatial accessibility of the central areas, where elder people can access welfare facilities more easily, is improved. It needs to choose parameter values with caution to analyse spatial accessibility based on 2SFCA.

Song, Bong-Geun ; Lee, Taek-Soon ; Park, Kyung-Hun ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 129~143
DOI : 10.11108/kagis.2014.17.4.129
The purpose of this study is to evaluate flooding vulnerability considering spatial characteristics focused on Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do. Assessment Factors are water cycle area ratio, surface runoff, and precipitation. And construction of assessment factors and vulnerability was analyzed by GIS program. Water cycle ratio and surface runoff were vulnerable in urban area. Precipitation was often distributed in agriculture of the northern region. Results of flooding vulnerability were low in agriculture and forest of the northern region. In contrast, urban area was high because there has covered impervious land cover. Analytical results of flooding vulnerability density using hotspot spatial cluster analysis were high in urban area. And these areas were situated in down stream so flooding were generated. Therefore, flooding vulnerability assessment of this study can help for selecting construction sites of pervious land cover and rainwater management facilities in urban and environmental planning.

Kim, Gyeong-Su ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 144~155

The industrial areas including large industrial complexes formed by the process of the growth-oriented industrialization in the past have been attributed to worsening the urban competitiveness of cities due to their infrastructure shortages and aging. Government-led regeneration projects for old industrial complexes have been implemented on a trial basis, but there is a problem with applying a uniform regeneration planning to all the regional industrial complexes with different circumstances and physical environments. In this context, this study diagnosed the social conditions and physical characteristics of the Sasang industrial area in the city of Busan formed by private-led projects in the past and then tried to suggest its regeneration directions. The study area was characterized as its weakening industrial function, infrastructure shortage, and increasing development pressure. Based on these regional characteristics, the regeneration directions were suggested. In the planning phase, pubic-led infrastructure expansion is first needed and urban renewal needs to be applied to some areas designated as priority maintenance areas. In the implementation phase, stepwise projects are required in the medium to long term and it is important to build upon the consensus with private companies through establishing collaborative governance.
Epipolar Resampling from Kompsat-2 and Kompsat-3
Song, Jeong-Heon ; Oh, Jae-Hong ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 156~166

As of 2014, KARI (Korea Aerospace Research Institute) operates two high-resolution satellites such as Kompsat-2 and Kompsat-3. Kompsat-3 has capability of in-track stereo images acquisition but it is quite limited because the stereo mode lowers the spatial coverage in a trajectory. In this paper we analyze the epipolar geometry from the heterogeneous Kompsat-2 and Kompsat-3 image combination to epipolar resample them for 3D spatial data acquisition. The analysis was carried out using the piecewise approach with RPCs (Rational Polynomial Coefficients) and the result showed the parabolic epipolar curve pattern. We also concluded that the third order polynomial transformation is required for epipolar image resampling. The resampled image pair showed 1 pixel level of y-parallax and can be used for 3D display and digitizing.

As large-scale housing sites are being developed rapidly in Sejong City, which was launched in 2012 for resolving the adverse effects of overconcentration in the capital area, promoting balanced development of the country, and reinforcing national competitiveness, changes in spatial structure are expected in the surrounding areas. For setting the directions of urban planning, it is essential to understand changes in spatial structure. This study purposed to measure changes in the spatial structure of neighboring areas resulting from the construction of Sejong City by approaching from the aspect of spatial interaction. In the analysis, we calculated population potential for future spatial interaction using the accessibility model, and interpreted quantitatively and qualitatively the outcomes of spatial interaction among neighboring areas before and after the construction of Sejong City using population potential as an indicator. According to the results of the analysis, the impact range of the population potential of the subject areas had been shrinking continuously since 1995, and in 2013 population potential dispersed as the population concentrated on and around Cheonan City. Although Sejong City, as a new area of population potential, was not found to play the role of a pivotal point for the surrounding areas, it is probably because the analysis was made just after people began to move to Sejong City. Accordingly, along with the effort of Sejong City to reach the planned population, it is necessary to keep monitoring changes in related factors and changes in the spatial structure of the surrounding cities resulting from the growth of population.

Choi, Soo-Young ; Gang, Su-Myung ; Kim, Jin-Man ; Oh, Eun-Ho ; Jo, Myung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 179~188

Social overhead capital (SOC) facilities are being threatened continuously by abnormal climate events that are increasing globally. For disaster response, rapid decision making on evacuation routes and other matters is critical. For this purpose, spatiotemporal information that combine data on disasters and SOC facilities needs to be utilized. This information is separately collected by government agencies and public organizations, and is not managed in an integrated manner. For rapid disaster response, an integrated management of separately collected disaster data and the creation of such information as the safety and damages on SOC facilities are required. To achieve this goal, it is essential to build inventories that integrate all the related information to support decision making indispensable for disaster response. In this study, a development plan for an integrated inventory management system based on the management and connection of inventories to support rapid decision making for disaster response is proposed. This system can collect and standardize data related to disasters and SOC facilities that are being managed separately and provide integrated information in line with the needs of users. The proposed system can be used as a decision making tool for proactive disaster response.

Choung, Yun-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies, volume 17, issue 4, 2014, Pages 189~199
DOI : 10.11108/kagis.2014.17.4.189
Floodplain is a flat plain between levees and rivers. This paper suggests a methodology for analyzing the land uses in the Nakdong River floodplain using the RapidEye imagery and the given LiDAR(LIght Detection And Ranging) DEM(Digital Elevation Models). First, the levee boundaries are generated using the LiDAR DEM, and the area of the floodplain is extracted from the given RapidEye imagery. The land uses in the floodplain are identified in the extracted RapidEye imagery by the ISODATA(Iterative Self-Organizing Data Analysis Technique Analysis) clustering. The overall accuracy of the identified land uses by the ISODATA clustering is 91%. Analysis of the identified land uses in the floodplain is implemented by counting the number of the pixels constituting the land cover clusters. The results of this research shows that the area of the river occupies 46%, the area of the bare soil occupies 36%, the area of the marsh occupies 11%, and the area of the grass occupies 7% in the identified floodplain.

Technology planning is becoming increasingly important with the rapid development and decline of technology. Technology roadmapping is a tool used to select whether the specific technique of technology planning should pursue which technology and in which time. This technology is important to secure the uncertain future since it will provide a method that is able to share the goals and strategies between organizations. Therefore, technology tree in the planning stage of the problem would be a very useful tool. In this study, both domestic and international technology tree application cases were analyzed to be able to derive a plan for ensuring that the research performed and the requirements are met for the future development and implementation of a convergence portal system. The six major systems that aim at water hazard information platform are basic information providing system, analysis information providing system, water disaster theme providing system, national disaster information system, water disaster augmented reality system and open information platform system. General standardized core technologies corresponding to the needed functions in each target system are derived through brainstorming, and classified according to the technology field to derive the technology tree.
