A Theoretical Study Using Geographic Information Systems to Harvest Rain Water in Kand Structure Area Northern Iraq


In order to reach to the fundamental basis of this research, a theoretical study was carried out for a suitable application of rainwater harvesting in the seasonal valleys. Wadi AL-Malh were selected in Kand Structure, located in northern Iraq to design rainwater harvesting techniques where two of this techniques was applied in the study area.The Geographic Information Systems database was initiated using (Arc View GIS V.3.1) software.
