Application of GIS system on the example of Ujście Warty National Park

key words: geoinformation systems, national parks, geospatial data, UAS


Currently national parks are collecting considerable quantities of spatial data. These data are gaining over from air, ground as well as water. The data exists in both digital and analog form, and to processed them various systems with different functionalities and the different degree of complexity are used. The building of geoinformation infrastructure of the Parks is going through satellite and aerial images as well as surveying data. Measurements data are collected mostly using Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receivers. The wide possibilities in this field offer also, less used in national parks technologies, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) as well as the LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). The analytic study of data is mainly basing on GIS (Geographical Information System) application, which makes possible the analysis of data base and elevation data. These data set has also spatial reference, which makes possible e. g. defining intensity of touristic routes of degree of moisture of forest bedding. In this paper the possibility of utilization of GIS system type on the example of Ujście Warty National Park were presented. The national park currently creates analytical solutions to provide the multi-access to spatial information. The basis for obtaining information are the attribute data stored in the geodatabase (in ArcGIS), image data (aerial and satellite images, UAS pictures and the numerical elevation models. Thanks to described proposal (Witzurki A., 2013) it was possible to create a fully functional system, using a wide range of spatial data. In the publication were also presented the possibility of a three-dimensional development of the national parks using data from the UAS and terrestrial laser scanning.
