Using spatial information system on artificial reefs positioning (ARPOS) by LKIM / Mahadi Man

Man, Mahadi (2006) Using spatial information system on artificial reefs positioning (ARPOS) by LKIM / Mahadi Man. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


This research describes the development of a web-based prototype system specifically
tailored to perform queries and updating of spatial datasets. Spatially enabled computing
can provide situation aware assistance to web-based users by presenting the right
information at the right time, place, and situation. The knowledge is assembled by
combining knowledge gained about information accessed in the past with the activities
planned by the user, together with other situation dependencies (e.g. location) of these
activities. The datasets are provided by the Fisheries Development Authorities of
Malaysia (LKIM) and the prototype is customized to the specific needs of the LKIM
requirements for Artificial Reefs distribution. Currently, the enforcement officers have
access to the fisheries database and location of Artificial Reefs solely fi'om the office.
Delivering these data overlaid on base maps of the Terengganu Sea to a spatially
enabled with the online access and linking it to each task currently being investigated
will allow for user and enforcement officers in the field to make informed decisions
immediately. Proper tracking and maintenance activities for the existing artificial reefs
are also required for their sustainability. It will collect and analyze artificial reefs
positioning using online Autodesk Map Guide software. Data of the artificial reefs was
recoded based on longitude and latitude and stored in MySql database. The information
will be presented in web-based GIS map user-friendly environment. The development
of the software will help to manage the information involved in the fisheries industry
and as the result can increase the productivity and the quality on that particular sector.
