Geomatics in hydrogeology

Janusz Michalak


Design and construction of hydrogeological information systems is now a necessity. For proper functionality of these systems, it is necessary to create them in accordance with widely accepted international standards regarding geospatial information. Geomatics research tools allow for creation of basic models of hydrogeological data, consistent with these standards. The models can be based upon classification of types and subtypes of hydrogeological features, as well as upon basic and derived classes of hydrogeological objects. The basis for this classification can be differentiation between features and objects, as well as between fuzzy features (objects) and fiat features (objects), or the analysis of their spatial dimensionality.
