A Review of Case Studies on GIS Application in Geotechnical Engineering
With the advancement in technology, Geographic Information System (GIS) has come into view as influential decision making tool. GIS provides user friendly interface to access and update the data. GIS has various applications in the geotechnical field. It includes determining borehole locations, obtaining data at unapproachable places, identifying soil strata, creating zonation maps, graphs, charts and making the site description. This paper reviews past research related to use of geographic information system in geotechnical engineering. Outcome from these studies has been discussed. It needs to continue to other researchers to explore and evaluate GIS application in geotechnical engineering.
