Duties: The objective of the project is to generate grassed waterway map by processing spatial DEM data. The maps help to eliminate massive field surveys for designing grassed waterways. To process DEM, I have developed an ESRI ArcGIS 9.3 based spatial data processing application using existing and custom built model tool with ESRI model builder. This model tool later converted to a python based application which directly process vector and raster data using the leverage of the lightweight RDBMS SQLite. The process involves a complex algorithm TauDEM for grid processing with python and SQLite.
Duties: Objective of the project is to generate variable filter strip map along with streams from DEM data. The technology used to develop the application is ArcGIS 10.0 based python scripting. Complex algorithms like D8 are coded using python and SQLite RDBMS, ESRI ArcGIS Model builder, Python.
