Use of GIS in the search for potable water

Share this project


We want to help in curbing the menace of failed water wells/boreholes. In the oceanic environment, we use our sophisticated equipment to detect potable water.

The use of Geographical information systems and Geophysical investigation survey in search of potable water.

Project description

What problem are you trying to solve?
Seeing the process of potable water search becoming tedious in this part of the world with fruitless efforts in blasting of the earth’s subsurface, we have designed a lasting solution which would help in curbing the menace of failed water wells/boreholes.

What is your solution to this problem?
This solution uses Geographical information systems software and Geophysical Investigation survey to address the non-availability of potable water. We use Geographical information systems software to delineate probable location/sites where a water well can be dug or borehole sunk. The Geophysical investigation survey also uses hardware and software to probe into depth vantage area of interest.

What is your latest update on your innovation?
New applications of ARCGIS software widely used in environmental science, can be used for suitability analysis and terrain analysis. New geophysical software used for modelling the subsurface, drilling machines of much effective use are being introduced into the market.
