Abstract

Many karst depressions with diameters of 300 m to 500 m, suitable for constructing Arecibo-style radio telescopes, were identified in the south of Guizhou Province by Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies together with field investigations. Fundamental topography and landform databases were established for 391 candidate depressions, and using GIS the 3-dimensional images of depressions, at a scale of 1:10000, were then simulated to fit a spherical antenna.
