Title: Merging Of Visual Modelling In Gis With Application To Merowe Dam Project
Author: Mohd. Kheir, Mohamed Abdel Rahman
Abstract: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is widely known to comprise a set of spatial data accompanied with a corresponding set of descriptive data, which are used together to treat different problem areas within that spatial extents and data domain. GIS scientists and models developers started to face continuous challenges due to the increasing complexity both in the spatial and non-spatial data of different types and resources inspite of the efforts spent in interoperability and standardization. This research explores the possibilities and benefits gained from introducing and merging of visual modelling technique in the GIS, as an additional modelling dimension that leads GIS developers to tackle problem stating, analyzing and solving of GIS modelling issues in more reliable and efficient way. The Visual modelling technique will guarantee proper development approach using the Unified Modelling Language which is considered as a general purpose, broadly applicable, tool-supported and industry standardized visual modelling language for specifying, constructing and documenting the artifacts of softwareintensive systems. The research applies the Unified Process of the object-oriented software development as a methodology for the Unified Modelling Language and developed a GIS-based model for Merowe Dam Project to serve as prototype model to test and prove the concept of merging. Enterprise Architect is used as a software tool for the visual modelling, while ArcGIS is used as GIS application software. This combination have supported the development and provided the model with the required capabilities for the concept clarification and approval.
