Reasoning with Mixed Qualitative-Quantitative Representations of Spatial Knowledge
TLDR
We introduce a hybrid reasoning system to deal with mixed qualitativequantitative representations of spatial knowledge—combining techniques developed separately for qualitative spatial reasoning and quantitative data analysis. Expand

Managing Qualitative Spatial Information to Support Query-by-Sketch
TLDR
In this paper, we propose an extension of existing geographic information systems to support querying-by-sketch, focusing particularly on data management and querying performance. Expand

A Qualitative Model for Visibility Relations
TLDR
We propose a qualitative model for visibility relations based on properties of the projective space, which allows the prediction of ternary relations between specific regions. Expand

Situation awareness in crowdsensing for disease surveillance in crisis situations
TLDR
We extend the mobile4D smartphone-based disaster reporting and alerting system with a situation awareness data interpretation and integration layer and demonstrate its application to the problem of tracking cholera outbreaks. Expand

A Hybrid Geometric-Qualitative Spatial Reasoning System and Its Application in GIS
TLDR
We propose a hybrid geometric-qualitative spatial reasoning system that is able to simultaneously deal with input information that is partially given geometrically and partially qualitatively using spatial relations of different qualitative spatial calculi. Expand

An egocentric semantic reference system for affordances
TLDR
This article suggests a theory of egocentric semantic reference systems for human observations of affordances that can be used to semantically account for subjective human observations on the web. Expand

Reasoning system to derive spatial information out of mixed quantitative-qualitative representations
Spatial data representation and the possibility of making spatial reasoning is essential in the field of Artificial Intelligence. There has been considerable research on spatial representations whichExpand
Urban Pollution: Computational Approaches For The Modelling Of PollutionTransport On Local Scale
In the present work we investigate some aspects of the problem about urban air pollution due to the vehicle-traffic. It is well known that a class of actions is oriented towards the direct reductionExpand
Ripensare la documentazione archeologica: nuovi percorsi per la ricerca e la comunicazione
TLDR
This paper describes a series of field experiments conducted by the archaeology team of the University of Foggia, and reflections based on the growing use of computers in the various phases of our research. Expand
