MAPPING THE STREAMS OF ATTICA USING GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS
Summary:
Rivers and streams in Attica and many other regions of Greece since ancient times have been an important criterion for the placement of human settlements due to the fertile soil that provided multiple benefits. Over time, many streams, rivers and streams that specifically crossed the Attica basin have been encroached upon and have suffered extensive degradation due to the intense urbanization of the area. The human interventions in the hydrographic network of the area resulted in the change of the geomorphological characteristics of the streams and the modification of their hydrological function. In the context of this work, the hydrographic network of the Attica Basin was mapped in a Geographical Information System (GIS) using the ArcGIS Pro 13.1 software, so as to map the network of the area and digitize the main networks of the rivers Kifisos, Ilisos, Picrodafni, Iridanou, Podonifti, Trahones and some streams in the southern suburbs. Through the use of a digital elevation model, and orthophotomaps from the Hellenic Cadastre, the streams were digitized and named. In addition, land use changes during the last few decades were investigated using CORINE data as well as previous publications and sources.
