The Importance of Building and Retaining the Soil in Watershead Areas

August 20th, 2012

The Global Positioning System and Circles - Math CentralWith new developments in modern agriculture and vast areas of land being developed throughout the world, keeping our soil and building up the ground in watershed areas has never been more important. In order to properly develop the land, we must use what we have learned in the past and apply it to what we are doing now. If we do not learn, we are destined to repeat the hard earned mistakes others have suffered.

When using heavy machinery, the soil becomes compacted and vegetation is removed. These soils cannot absorb water and causes large amounts of runoff. This leads to flooding in areas where flooding was never a problem. It also leads to acidification in the soil.

The way to fix this problem is with vegetation. Even small scattered areas within a developed area. Without vegetation, the future use of the land and its impact on the surrounding lands is in question. The best soil is created by microorganisms and plant roots which are a vital part of the ecosystem. Read the rest of this entry »

Technology Drives Innovations in Land Development

 ... Assessed for Orbit Determination at Global Positioning System OrbitTechnology in land development is responsible for keeping growth possible in a struggling economy. Undeveloped land can have retail operations up and running in months from the time the first tree is removed. Heavy equipment working along with surveyors using GPS technology can lay out a plan for every hill and flat space on a building site much quicker than if the Global Positioning System satellites were not in place. The equipment itself can now tell exactly where it is at. Following blueprints to dig a spot down to the inch of where it needs to be is easier now.

Technology makes it easier to get big cranes into city centers to build buildings straight up around the cranes that lift everything into place. Read the rest of this entry »
