Abstract

  This study integrated and updates the entire Fadama- mada area with a comprehensive digital map and cadastral data in order to achieve economic and sustainable development. The raster image from the analogue maps was also fully utilised. Scanned images were sent to Auto CAD environment for proper geo-referencing. Positions of updated features were added using coordinate geometry (COGO). Drawings were properly edited using Arc view3.2a soft ware environment. Graphics were linked with non spatial attributes data base. The result of this exercise was checked by some GIS operation and analysis, and digital map of Fadama- mada was produced. Results were shown in graphics and tables. At the end of this study cadastral information system (CIS) has proved to be a reliable efficient tool that can be used in the monitoring, evaluating and management of cadastral records in our ministries and local government offices as well as other related agencies and government establishment for sustainable development.

Publication Title Developing A Road Maintenance Model For Abuja FCT Nigeria, Using Remote Sensing And GIS Technologies.
Publication Authors Babalola S O and Ibochi A A
Year Published 2011
Abstract

The dynamism and complexity of road damage, its related consequences on the economy of this nation call for a novel technology with full potential and capacity that can effectively handle spatial referenced data. The road networks in Nigeria are so much afflicted that they function below standard and design specifications. The cause of this prevailing deterioration that has plagued the road networks into death traps can be traced to successive government neglects, inadequate resources, out-lived design lifespan, structural design defects, sub-standard construction materials and other natural phenomena. Road asset is a prime indicator of any nation’s economy and the driving force of integration and developments. These are some of the reasons for proper maintenance and management of the existing networks, in view of the dwindling resources available for its up-keeping. To cope with the pace of repairs and the dynamic nature of road damage, there is a need to have a centralized network database for proper performance and preservation of road integrity and serviceability. This study explores the potentials of the binary technologies of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System in data capturing, processing and dissemination to produce a road maintenance model that can be edited and up-dated.

Publication Title Analysis Of Land Use/land Cover Of Girei, Yola North And South Local Government Areas Of Adamawa State, Using Satellite Imagery
Publication Authors Babalola S.O, Musa A.A, Adegboyega S.A, Abubakar T.& Ezmodu IC.
Year Published 2012
Abstract

This research demonstrated the use of satellite imagery in detecting changes in land use/ land cover on the fringes of urban areas. Satellite data of the same geographical area, recorded over a decade, were used to identify changes in the pattern of land use/land cover. The study used multi date satellite imageries namely, Landsat MSS 1978 and SPOT5 2007. The images were separately classified and then compared using ILWIS 3.3 and Erdas Imagine 9.3 Versions. The land use/land cover statistics results obtained from the two classifications process showed that built-up areas, sand, water bodies, and open/barren land were found to have been increasing at alarming rate while agricultural land and scrubs were encroached upon by other land use/land cover types. The study showed that land use/land cover change was better captured and monitored through the use of satellite imagery that served as a means of efficiently updating digital databases as shown in the research.

Publication Title Combating Flood Crisis Using GIS: Empirical Evidences From Ala River Floodplain, Isikan Area, Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria
Publication Authors Michael Ajide Oyinloye, Oluwadare Isaac Olamiju, and Babalola Sunday Oyetayo
Year Published 2013
Abstract

 Natural hazards have become an issue of growing concern throughout the world. The related well as the magnitude of the related disasters, threatening large population living in diverse environments show a dramatic rise everywhere in recent years.

Due to structural growth and the booming economics activities within the flood plain of River Ala in Akure, Nigeria has induced flooding in this city, with subsequent loss of properties, life and human dissettlemnet.     

The objectives of the paper were to determine the causes of flooding in the area; identifies areas which activities and development need to be monitored and to devise a workable framework for managing flood problems in the study area. For this study, a SPOT imagery of the area was acquired. ArcGIS 9.0 software was employed to obtain information by the process of digitizing the SPOT imagery for the purpose of delineating River Ala flood plain. The results obtained implicated dumpsites within the river channel as well as structural development within the River Ala flood plain as the major causes of environmental hazards in this section of the city, especially during rain period. The study recommends structural and non structural strategies for mitigating the effects of flooding on the residents and infrastructures. Structural measures in terms of construction of levee and flood walls along river channel to protect the buildings that are most vulnerable. Non structural measures include landuse planning and legislation against encroachment on flood plains.

Publication Title Application Of Geo-Informatics Techniques To Solid Waste Generation And Its Management In Aule GRA, Akure Nigeria.
Publication Authors Babalola S.O and Adegboyega S.A
Year Published 2013
Abstract

The problem of solid waste generation and management has assumed a dangerous dimension in cities of developing countries particularly in the fast growing capital cities in Nigeria. It is obvious that waste generation, collection and management are not given right of place in the physical planning of these cities. The emerging environmental challenges such as the growth of  refuse hill which occasionally leads to blocking of roads and often times constitutes a serious  threat to human habitats by way of causing environmental menace, health hazard and economic descend leave much to be desired. A case under consideration is Aule GRA part of Akure metropolis where attention is required for a proactive determination of solid waste generated at household level, effective collection and its evacuation at regular interval to nib in the bud the possible outbreak of epidemics in the area. In this paper, geo informatics was used as a decision support tool for the volume of waste generation, collection and management. Google earth imagery of the study area was downloaded and processed using digital image processing techniques. GPS was used to take the coordinates of six prominent places which were used to geo reference the imagery. From the imagery, a base map of the study area was generated. 63% of the copies of questionnaire administered on the randomly sampled households were returned and analyzed using SPSS. Wastes generated were weighed over a period of one month to determine the rate of generation per day. Hence waste per head per day was determined. The population of each household was used together with the waste per head to determine the total waste generated at each family-household. A spatial decision support system was eventually developed to predict the evacuation day for each household. In a general overview of the results generated from this research, it was discovered that using the waste bin provided by the, project evacuation of waste must take place within two days interval otherwise waste bin for some house would be over-filled.
