Strategies for Cyber Territory Construction
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 1~14
Due to the rapid development in information technology, countries of advanced information technology and multi-national information communication industries have expanding their invesment in constructing a cyber territory or a cyber city, and even a cyber globe that combines the real world with the cyber world. As such, in order to keep up with the competition with other countries to secure the Invisible Continent, Korea cannot afford to fall behind in the preparation and efforts to construct a cyber territory. Therefore in preparation for the inevitable establishment of a cyber territory, this study defined the concept of a cyber territory clearly and proposed a promotional strategy needed by the government for the establishment of a cyber territory. A cyber territory is 'the dynamic second territory that realizes various values in various aspects through organically combining innumerable active bodies in a surreal space and that are created by systematically and optimally connecting the physical topographical space and activity of the first nation to the cyberspace'. To explain further, a cyber territory is defined as another simulated space not only to manage the land systematically and deal with administrative services far the greater population, but also to contain economic activities of corporations and the citizens' everyday lives in a virtual reality by digitizing the entire territory including even the sea. In order to establish such cyber territory, it is necessary to revise related laws and policies, to foster related technology and industry as a main engine for national development, to promote public awareness, and to train related human resources.
A Study on the Development of Evaluation Scheme of the National Geographic Information System Policy
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 15~27
GIS has recognized as the Social Overhead Capital to improve national competition and to heighterl the productivity of adminstration in 1990's in Korea. As the size and the scope of the NGIS policy have drastically expanded, evaluation has become a critical process. Thus NGIS driving committee has adopted the GIS project evaluation scheme in NGIS law since 2000. But the HGIS evaluation scheme is not sufficient for the comprehensive appraisal on the GIS project in the Second National GIS Master Plan (2001-2005). This research aims to explore an the improved evaluation scheme of NGIS policy.

Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 29~43
The purpose of this study is to set up the GIS Audit methodology through the definition of standard procedure ailed GIS Audit criteria and the result of preliminary study about the GIS Audit. the frame of GIS Audit criteria and the result of preliminary study about the GIS Project and check the GIS Audit methodology is to define a standard process of GIS Project and check the GIS Project according to the standard process. We named the method as CASP(GIS Audit Standard Procedure). GASP method means doing Pilot Project for setting the sample standard procedure(named Prototype) of total GIS Project process, and checking the activity to fulfill the prototype. GASP method is advanced method for GIS Audit to analyze the full range of GIS Project and characteristics of GIS contents.
Development of a user-friendly information system for river water quality using Web GIS
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 45~59
The author argues that the current Government Information System for river water quality appears to be non-user friendly due to lack of the cartographic representation for the field monitoring data. Acknowledging these constraints, an operational, user-friendly information system has been developed by combining Internet technology with GIS. A digital map for water quality has been generated by overlaying monitoring data on existing cartographic data such as road, topography and administrative boundary etc. A user interface was designed to address the need to querry the large spatial databases by non-GIS and non-environmental experts. The system has been checked experimentally and enabled the users to querry data required simply. And detailed visual maps for water quality can be generated over large areas quickly and easily. A visual mapping system for water quality was developed by reframing the monitoring data as graphic symbols and it was ideally suited to exploring area-wide water quality at a user-friendly manner due to extensibility and scalability along the various survey points. This system based on Web GIS could be accessed anywhere if internet is available. It would play a crucial role in improving the quality of public information service if it is operationally introduced into the Government since the highly user-friendly interface provides a completely new means for disseminating information far water pollution in a visual and interactive manner to the general public.
A Spatial Index for PDA using Minimum Bounding Rectangle Compression and Hashing Techniques
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 61~76
Mobile map services using PDA are prevailing because of the rapid developments of techniques of the internet and handhold devices recently. While the volume of spatial data is tremendous and the spatial operations are time-intensive, the PDA has small size memory and a low performance processor. Therefore, the spatial index for PDA should be small size and efficiently filter out the candidate objects of spatial operation as well. This paper proposes a spatial index far PDA called MHF(Multilevel Hashing File). The MHF has simple structure for storage efficiency and uses a hashing technique, which is direct search method, for search efficiency. This paper also designs a compression technique for MBR. which occupies almost 80% of index data in the two dimensional case. We call it HMBR. Although the HMBR technique reduces the MB\ulcorner size to almost a third, it shows good filtering efficiency because of no information loss by quantization in case of small objects that occupy a major portion. Our experimental tests show that the proposed MHF index using HMBR technique is appropriate for PDA in terms of the size of index, the Number of MBR comparisons, the filtering efficiency and the execution time of spatial operations.
A Study on Developing Model of Urban Planning Information System
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 77~92
In order to prevent indiscreet urban growth and harmonize urban development with environmental preservation, it is strongly required in Korea that urban planning should be reasonable and transparent. From this societal demand, the urban planning system was changed to be strengthened for the establishment of harmonious land-use order in urban space. However, implementation of the urban planning system demands a lot of information to analyze and estimate the present condition and problems of urban area. For this purpose, the information should quickly be collected, managed and analyzed. The urgent demand of information in urban planning field is able to be fulfilled with recent GIS and its relevant information technique, which can quickly, accurately and conveniently collect various spatial and statistical information, systematically analyze and manage them, and visually present the result of spatial analysis. This study suggested a urban planning information system and its basic implementing scheme to support the urban planning system with GIS and presented a development model of the urban planning information system using the recent GIS and its relevant information technique.
Metadata Structrues of Huge Shared Disk File System for Large Files in GIS
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 93~106
The traditional file system are designed to store and manage fur small size files. So. we cannot process the huge files related with geographic information data using the traditional file system such as unix file system or linux file system. In this paper, we propose new metadata structures and management mechanisms for the large file system in geographic information system. The proposed mechanisms use dynamic multi-level mode for large files and dynamic bitmap for huge file system. We implement the proposed mechanisms in the metadata structures of SANtopia is shared disk huge file system for storage area networks(SAN).
Analysis of hydrologic chracterustucs for Milyang river basin with a GIS
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 107~122
Hydrological characteristics would be utilized to apply such as hydrologic modelling or basin management. This study is to extract hydrological characteristics through DEM and stream network analysis using a hydrologic unit map and digital topographic map in Milyang river basin. OEM and stream network was generated from digital topographic map. Especially stream network was allowed direction, stream order, and topology. As a result of the study, it shows that Milyang river has been changing geologically mature stage into old phase and the landform of Milyang river correspond to Horton-Strahler's law on morphology of stream. This methodology can be applicable to other areas related to hydrological characteristics with vector data.
A Strategy for the Establishment of the Abandoned Mine GIS
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 123~138
The Abandoned Mine Geographic Information System(GIS) should be established in order to prevent and restore mine damages and to revitalize the economy in abandoned mine regions. The purpose of this paper is to develop and propose a pilot system and the Abandoned Mine GIS. The basic concept for the establishment of the Abandoned Mine GIS is embodied through case studies of various countries. Gosari region in Samcheok City is selected as a sample site for a pilot system. Through construction and operation of the pilot system, a rational method and some difficulties are identified. Based on tole result of the pilot system, directions and schedules for the establishment of the Abandoned Mine GIS are presented.
Estimation of Soil Loss Changes and Sediment Transport Path Using GIS and Multi-Temporal RS data
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 139~152
The purpose of this study is to estimate temporal soil loss change according to long-term land cover changes using G1S and RS. Revised USLE(Universal Soil Loss Equation) factors were prepared by using point rainfall data, DEM(Digital Elevation Model), soil map and land cover map. During the past two decades, land cover changes were traced by using Landsat MSS and TM data. As a result, forest area in 2000 has decreased 25.3
compared with that in 1990. Soil loss has decreased 3751.2 tou/yr. On the other hand, upland area has increased 22.5
. Soil loss of upland has increased 5395.4 to/yr. Therefore, soil loss in 2000 increased 6.3 kg/
/yr compared with that in 1990. This was mainly caused by the increased upland area.
A Study on the patterns of land use change based on the digital parcels
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 153~164
This used a new method to capture the neighbouring relationship among parcels. To define the neighbouring relationship, all the surrounding parcels in the study area can be identified as neighbours of the current parcel as long as they touch each other even at a point. To examine neighbouring parcels on all polygons of the study area, this study used ArcViews avenue programming which visited each polygon in turn and produced an outfile containing the parcel record ID and the contents of each of the adjacent parcels. The second thing is to translate the record IDs of neighbouring parcels into land use. For this, this study used the Lookup function in Excel to obtain neighbouring land use. To deal with how to calculate the ratio of each land use to neighbouring land uses, this study used Visual Basic. finally, this study considered a term of neighbour land use as the ratio of the number of urban use adjacent parcels to the total number of adjacent parcels. This study shows that GIS and spatial analysis can be applied to land use change in the urban fringe area at a very detailed level using municipal parcel data which occupies about 80% of administrative affairs, especially at the local government level in Korea. The results of analysis can be useful for local government to understand its situation and to manage land use efficiently in the urban fringe. The methodology developed in this study is especially useful for an empirical approach.
Strategy and Implementation of Land Management Information Systems
Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 10, issue 1, 2002, Pages 165~183
The master plan for the land management information system development was established in 1997 and demonstration projects were carried out in Nam-gu, Daegu Metropolis in 1998. As of the end of 2001, 12 project areas have completed installing the land management information system and are now utilizing it in operations or in trial operation and 88 areas are still under construction. Sixteen metropolises and provinces and 232 cities, counties and districts plan to complete the development of land management information system by 2004 and additionally Install a land information center to manage and maintain the land management information system. The land management information system was introduced as one of information technologies to solve the problems arising in the operations of land management and administration. It inevitably accompanies a radical change of working environment, from analogue to digital. It is obviously not a simple job and largely depends on how to entice the officials working in analogue settings into a digitalized world. Therefore, it is not too much to say that the success of the land management information system development project depends on how to rationally adapt the analogue land administrations to a digital environment.
