Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

Would it be possible via a LANDSAT satellite image(or some other system) that was  digitized,to make a plan for a drainage system, say for a large farm or village,like Haradevsinh Hadeja did in India.
Something that is really,really effective,by just using the  satellite imagery?

RE: Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

A simple topo map works equally well.

RE: Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

Are there any companies that you are aware of that would offer a complete service,say to survey a farm and then carry out the work..........anyone?

RE: Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

Sounds an awful lot like "Keyline Design" which is an irrigation - water management method utilizing topography (two differing sides of the same coin); and, "yes" our business offers this highly recommended planning type service.

RE: Rain water harvesting plan via satellite image

Does google earth have a rain fall plugin for this type of survey ?
