THE USE OF THE GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS FOR INVENTORING AND MONITORING THE GREEN AREAS IN CARANSEBEŞ
The purpose of this paper is to present a modern approach used to establish the Local Registry of Green Cadastre of the public administrative territory of Caransebeş Municipality. Topographic measurements of green areas and the tree inventory database have been performed with the latest generation GIS and GNSS instruments. More than 7,000 trees were identified taxonomically and their geographical coordinates and biometric data were determined. All the field data was loaded into an updatable database and processed using the ArcGIS v.10.3 software. A GIS map with all the Green Cadastre information was realized as a useful instrument for the Municipality in order to easily monitor and permanently have an actual image of their green areas situation. Additionally, 48 hectares of green areas have been identified and measured as future potential objects for new projects to be financed in order to improve their citizen`s welfare.
