A software package has been developed, allowing to visualise simultaneously several data-sets in real-time without the need of special graphic hardware. This is achieved by combining DirectX routines together with methods like CLOD, culling, indicated triangles, ROAM, Quad tree, GeoMorphing and Geo-Mipmapping. This has been done within the framework of the(More)
Detailed geo-referenced information on the distribution and occurrence of forest and non-forest vegetation is essential for many different disciplines e.g. forestry, nature conservation, agriculture, landscaping and urban planning. This article presents a digital image processing procedure for automated delineation and classification of forest and(More)
It has been put forward that the existence of a non-Gaussian fixed point in general relativity might cure the ultraviolet problems of this theory in a quantum description. Such a fixed point is connected to an effective running of the gravitational coupling. We calculate the effect of such an effective coupling on the black hole production cross-section in(More)
This paper describes a 3D stockpile modelling algorithm to improve quality control and increase operational efficiency in iron ore handling. The 3D model, generated from real measuring data, approximates a stockpile using a group of 3D volumetric element, which able to store information inside it, such as quality compositions of the ore. By associating this(More)
The effects of classical gravitational radiation in models with large extra dimensions are investigated for ultra high energy cosmic rays (CRs). The cross sections are implemented into a simulation package (SENECA) for high energy hadron induced CR air showers. We predict that gravitational radiation from quasi-elastic scattering could be observed at(More)
