Parameterization of the surface infrastructural situation and land use planning specifications


The parameterization of the surface infrastructural situation and land use planning specifications comprises the selection, formal description and visualization of the geoobjects relevant for land use planning as well as the near-surface underground (to a depth of two meters) and the surface subjects of protection, climate, water and air. It also incorporates the areas of applicability and primacy contained in the federal state development plan and the landscape conditions plan for the concerning uses (i.e. drinking water protection areas, drinking water extraction areas, conservation areas and energy exploitation areas).

The aim of this work package is the incorporation of the surface and subsurface planning domain into a three dimensional data model. This includes the parameterization of the surface energy infrastructure as well as present land use planning regulations.

For the technical realization, different spatial information systems (QGIS, GRASS) as well as spatial packages of the python programming language are used. For the incorporation of the subsurface domain (geological layers, storages and storage attributes), the data, created in GoCAD and Petrel, is transferred to geocoded 3D-Models. Together with the surface data it forms the data basis for the implementation of a spatially enabled online steering instrument (in terms of a spatial decision assistance system) to perform an identification of areas of applicability based on objective criteria for possible economically, energetically, ecologically or socially relevant land uses.
