Impact Assessment of Quarrying Activities Using Remote ...

2019-4-17 · Abstract: The Construction projects require a wide range of raw materials, such as sand and gravel for concrete, crushed stone for road surface, clay for bricks, metals for plumbing and wiring, etc Many of these materials are produced all around the world. But the location of their occurrence and impacts caused due to their extraction on the local and national environment is the major concern in the construction industries. The sources of these basic materials are quarries. A high demand for construction necessitates more volume of materials to be extracted from quarry sites. Such extractions alter the normal occurrences of nature. The main objective of this project is to develop the spatial information for determining the impacts of quarries on the urban environment using Geospatial Technology. Remote sensing, Geographic Information System and Global Positioning System constitutes the geo-spatial technology. In this work, the areal expansion of construction resource quarries
