Some applications of GIS in the selection suitable location for rain water harvesting
Location Selection for RWH
The water crisis has been rapidly increasing these days in many parts of the world which emphasize the importance of refinement in water management systems. Harvesting of rainwater(or rainwater harvesting(RWH)), which involves the collection and storage of rainwater for future use, is an area of increasing interest and one of the most suitable measures for ensuring water availability in the future days. The location of RWH is of utmost importance for the success of the water harvesting project. Locations for the construction of RWH structures like check dams, percolation tanks, bench terraces, contour ridges, and contour bunds can be determined by the application of Geographical Information System(GIS), Multi-Criteria Decision Making(MCDM), and different predictive models.
