Agile scrum software development has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years due to its flexibility, responsiveness and reliability. This article extends it to multi-vendor competing situations, and introduces a collaborative framework for agile scrum development. A case study confirms the usefulness and applicability of the proposed framework.
Exploratory data analysis is increasingly more necessary as larger spatial data is managed in electromagnetic media. We propose an exploratory method that reveals a robust clustering hierarchy. Our approach uses the Delaunay diagram to incorporate spatial proximity. It does not require any prior knowledge about the data set, nor does it require parameters… (More)
We incorporate two knowledge discovery techniques, clustering and association-rule mining, into a fruitful exploratory tool for the discovery of spatio-temporal patterns. This tool is an autonomous pattern detector to reveal plausible cause-effect associations between layers of point and area data. We present two methods for this exploratory analysis and we… (More)
Crime activities are geospatial phenomena and as such are geospatially, thematically and temporally correlated. Thus, crime datasets must be interpreted and analyzed in conjunction with various factors that can contribute to the formulation of crime. Discovering these correlations allows a deeper insight into the complex nature of criminal behavior. We… (More)
The ordered order-k Voronoi diagram is a popular generalization of the ordinary Voronoi diagram modeling ordered k nearest sites. Despite of the usefulness of the ordered order-k Voronoi diagram, its structural complexity and wealth of information captured result in poor readability. Most research has focused on computational complexity, and… (More)
To support the need for interactive spatial analysis, it is often necessary to rethink the data structures and algorithms underpinning applications. This paper describes the development of an interactive environment in which a number of different Voronoi models of space can be manipulated together in real time, to (1) study their behaviour, (2) select… (More)
With the development of web technique and social network sites human now can produce information, share with others online easily. Photo-sharing website, Flickr, stores huge number of photos where people upload and share their pictures. This research proposes a framework that is used to extract associative points-of-interest patterns from geo-tagged photos… (More)
