Transporting CO2 From Source to Sink using GIS Mission 2013, 12.000 Wednesday, September 30, 2009 Daniel Sheehan
Outline What is a GIS –Data Types –Symbolizing data Useful data for Carbon Sequestration –Power plants –Potential Sinks Processing –Network Analysis –Cost Path Analysis
What is a GIS (Geographic Information System)? GIS is a tool for managing data about where features are (geographic coordinate data) and what the features are like (attribute data). A GIS provides the ability to query, manipulate, and analyze these data.
Vector Data Points Line Polygons All are scale dependent
Development of Terrascope model in GIS workshops You will need to create your own cost surface (required for cost path model) –river crossings –zoning/land use restrictions –construction costs
Workshop content Use the data presented here to determine the least cost path for routing a pipeline from Boston area CO2 sources to the nearest deep saline formation Use Arcgis 9.3 software Visualize your least cost path in Google Earth
GIS Workshops Scheduled for 7:30-9PM, limit of 22 people per session Additional sessions can be scheduled –October 7 –October 14 –October 15 –Must sign up with Seth Burgess (sburgess@MIT.EDU) –Determine construction costs before lab
Geologic Maps For teams 4 and 5, you will need to know what minerals are where. Geologic data is not always available in digital form. Maps will be helpful for you. In Barton, maps are searchable. See, for example: http://library.mit.edu/item/000179757, Bedrock Geologic Map of Massachusettshttp://library.mit.edu/item/000179757
Where to get more infomation GIS Lab, Rotch Library, Building 7 –6 PCs with Arcgis and Google Earth Pro installed –staffed 12:30PM – 4:00PM Monday through Thursday and by appointment –email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org@email@example.com 37-312, Windows Cluster in Building 37 –23 high end PCs with Arcgis installed
