  • STREET GUIDE MAPPING OF PART OF BIRNIN KEBBI TOWNSHIP

    ABSTRACT

    This research is on Street guide mapping of part of Birnin Kebbi township. The advent and advances made in computer technology in the twenty-first century has generally increased the speed and the capacity of various geoinformation and map-making processes. The improvements have revolutionized the map-making process, which has metamorphosed into the widely acknowledged of the use of ARCGIS 9.2. ARCGIS 9.2 has tremendously transformed the traditional (analogue) method of map-making. Round the world, ARCGIS9.2 is continuously being applied in achieving high precision street guide maps for a variety of purposes. However in Nigeria, the full potentials of such modern technologies and science are  to be realized.

    In achieving this, a Analogue map of part of Birnin Kebbi metropolis was obtain from Kebbi urban development Authority (KUDA) which was scanned in order to convert it from analogue to Digital map which can be use and also a Google image of part of Birnin Kebbi covering the entire area of the project was save as alibekjoe (jpeg format) which copy into the flesh drive and latter on been transfer to the laptop computer hp(930).

    Coordinate of the part of the area was obtain through hand held GPS that will be use for geo-referencing comparing them with those on the ground.

    A spatially referenced street guide map showing various essential information in the study area such as streets names, street index; important features and services such as schools, hotels, Church, hospitals, Government, and High court of justice was produced in the process. It is expected that the result will among other things boost tourists’ experience in the state, which are often hampered by the unavailability and often times outdated analogue street maps of the city. The results will also be of immense help to the general management and administration of the local government council through the provision of up-to-date information on the location of utilities and services in the state.
