A GIS tool for the design and assessment of road drain spacing to minimize stream pollution: RoadCAT

Thompson, Christopher; Hicks, Andrew; Sun, Xiaoying


Unsealed roads are an important source of runoff and sediment which can affect the hydrology and water quality of streams. The Road Connectivity Assessment Tool (RoadCAT) is being developed based on the conceptual framework of volume-to-breakthrough and hydrological connectivity between roads and streams in managed forest environments that allows identification of the different types of delivery pathways and estimation of the runoff volumes delivered through them. RoadCAT is built in ArcGIS's...[Show more]
