This paper presents an approach to the task of locating a group of buildings based solely on their relative spatial relationships. This situation can occur in the problem of conflation of a hand or machine drafted map to a satellite image or in matching of two images taken under different viewing conditions (the correspondence problem). Of importance to us(More)
This paper presents a novel method for visualizing vectors of fuzzy numbers. The proposed approach is an extension of the standard polar area diagram and can be applied to a single uncertain vector or a fuzzy weighted graph with vectors of fuzzy attributes on the vertices and/or edges. The resulting diagrams are intuitive to understand and do not require an(More)
This paper presents an endmember estimation and representation approach for human geography data cubes. Human-related factors that can be mapped for a geographic region include factors relating to population, age, religion, education, medical access and others. Given these hundreds (or even thousands) of factors mapped over a region, it is extremely(More)
In this paper, we present an improved evolutionary method for the task of locating a group of buildings based solely on their relative spatial relationships. This problem arises in the general text-to-sketch problem of conflating a hand or machine drafted sketch of building locations to a satellite image. We use the histograms of forces to capture the(More)
Human geography is a concept used to indicate the augmentation of standard geographic layers of information about an area with behavioral variations of the people in the area. In particular, the actions of people can be attributed to both local and regional variations in physical (i.e., terrain) and human (e.g., income, political, cultural) variables. In(More)
This paper presents a memetic algorithm for the task of sketch geolocation. Small sets of 2D objects having real-world origin are depicted as sketches, which capture their spatial configuration. These are matched to a much larger geospatial reference scene using a memetic algorithm, which combines both global and local search strategies. Sets are(More)
