The project entitled integrated spatial approach using GIS for slope risk assessment. The Roads Service Model was selected not only for the implementation of GIS where before there was none, but also the integration and management of multiple different datasets. The model is already being used commercially by the roads service, Northern Ireland.
“I am honoured to be the recipient of the AGI Student of the Year Award, 2013 sponsored by 1Spatial. My personal aims for the project were for providing an example of how modern spatial analysis approaches can be used for the manipulation, assessment and visualisation of spatial data for everyday real world applications. I am delighted that the success of this project was recognised through this award,” said Andrew Bell.
