GEOMATICS TECHNOLOGIES APPLICATED FOR LANDUSE ON EASTER ISLAND (CHILE)
Herrera González,Víctor Fernando
This project resorts al use integrated and satellite images application with high spatial resolution (QuickBirdII). The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the contribution of geomatics technologies for cadastral applications in Easter Island (Chile). This project resorts use integrating satellite images with high spatial resolution (QuickBridII), GPS equipment and geographic information system (GIS) in a very particular zone in land use administration like Rapa Nui or Easter Island . The result obtained with high accuracy measurements, resolved the geo reference for the land use map of the city and also defined the geometric control point for the satellite image correction process. Finally, with the creation of this cartographic data base we can mix the information with the cartographic mosaic necessary for the Ministry of National Assets . The data gathered with this technique is very important for the government actions regarding future transference of land to the descendants of ancient inhabitants of the island. Also, there is special relevance in the application of geomatics technologies in the island, when it comes to improve the urban growth planning and people's life conditions.
