health of Lake Kasshabog today and tomorrow
The Lake Kasshabog Residents Association (LKRA) would like to develop a tool, using a Geographic Information System (GIS), which would be accessible to certain members of the association. With this tool they would be able to describe the extent of damage that shoreline modifications, invasive plant species, fishing practices, etc. are causing to the lake. Using Microsoft Access, a database of field data has been created which has been attached to a digital map of the area. The tools provided with this application allow the user to manipulate the data into a visual representation and to see exactly what is happening to the ecology of Lake Kasshabog. It will be a useful aid for any study done on the lake, and for determining if the lake is improving over time., Executive summary -- Table of contents -- List of figures -- List of appendices -- 1.0 Introduction. 1.1 The client. 1.2 The problem. 1.3 Background information/study area. 1.4 Objectives -- 2.0 Methodology. 2.1 Importing and modifying the data. 2.2 Creating the themes. 2.3 Creating and linking the database. 2.4 Displaying the data in a 3D scene. 2.5 Graphic user interface (GUI) development -- 3.0 Project results -- 4.0 Discussion and conclusions. 4.1 Risk assessment. 4.2 Limitations of the project. 4.3 Potential improvements of the project., by Shawn Seawright. --, Includes: final research report., Completed for: Terry Rees at the Lake Kasshabog Residents' Association; Supervising Professor: Graham Cogley, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2003., GEOG 440, Research in Physical Geography, Community-based research project.
