BACKGROUND Climate change has a significant impact on population health. Population vulnerabilities depend on several determinants of different types, including biological, psychological, environmental, social and economic ones. Surveillance of climate-related health vulnerabilities must take into account these different factors, their interdependence, as(More)
With the growing popularity of mobile computing and the empowerment of mobile devices by high end-users and decision-makers, the development of architectures based on web services for the deployment of mobile Spatial OLAP (SOLAP) applications is being perceived as a powerful solution. This paper deals with geospatial (web) Services-Oriented Architectures(More)
Introduction: Spatial data warehouses aim at effective and efficient querying of spatial data. Spatial databases are suited for answering regular transactional queries where there is not a lot of historical component or aggregation. The class of queries that are needed to support the decision making process are difficult on spatial data bases. This gave a(More)
Map generalization is a complex task which requires sometimes human intervention. In order to support such a process on-the-fly, we propose a generalization approach based on Self-Generalizing Objects (SGOs) which encapsulate geometric patterns (forms common to several cartographic features), generalization algorithms, and spatial integrity constraints.(More)
