REMOTE SENSING AND GIS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS AND HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
Civil Engineering is one of the oldest and important branches of engineering, comprises of many sub-divisions such as surveying (topographic/cadastral/natural resources etc.), construction (urban/rural/municipal infra-structure/materials etc.), transportation (roads/bridges/traffic etc.), water resources (water supply/treatment/ canals/dams/ storm/sewers etc.), environmental (chemical and biological waste/public-health/pollution-impact/remedy/resource management etc.), geological (rock, soil mechanics/ earthquake engineering etc.) and coastal (erosion/flood defense/hydro-dynamics etc.). In simple terms the civil engineering applications can be divided into two groups: a) human related b) environment related, and remote sensing plays a vital role in providing required near-real-time images/data about the ground/topography/weather/ landcover which will potentially help the civil engineers for effective planning and decision making
