Application of GIS in flood hazard management of Kosi River Basin
Over the last two decades Geographic Information System (GIS) has emerged on an effective tool for planning and management and has become an umbrella concept for all automated systems that integrate and handle geo- referenced information. GIS is a computer-based tool for the input. Storage, management, retrieval and out- put of information. Long (2000) defines is as "A Geographic Information (GIS) is a computer system for analyzing and mapping just about anything moving or stationary. A GIS integrates common database operations such as query and statistical analysis with the ability to see how data relates in space and time, "on Hall's Hall (1999)" stresses the point that "GIS are much more than simply computer mapping system and can do much more than merely out putting improved digital versions of static paper based map, GIS blend map production, image presentation and statistical analysis capabilities into a powerful analytical tool that can be applied to a variety of Problems."
