Implementation of a Web-GIS Application with ArcGIS Server 9.2 for the Peace River Landslide Project, Alberta

Alberta Geological Survey created a Web-GIS application for the Peace River Landslide Project to provide access to significant geological, geotechnical, remote sensing and GIS data on the town of Peace River. We developed this application as part of a project to provide a better understanding of the extent, rate and drivers for landslides in and around the municipality, and to provide information for planning to reduce risk to population and infrastructure from landslide hazards.

The design of this Web-GIS application aims to create a user-friendly Web interface for the public to display and manipulate available data of the area. These data, organized as map layers, include geotechnical and water-well boreholes, bedrock geology, surficial geology, physiography, satellite images and a digital elevation model of the town of Peace River, urban infrastructure and hydrography. Users can turn on and off different map layers, navigate around the area, retrieve data, display borehole log information and create plots with geotechnical data.
