'Wikification of GIS by the masses' is a phrase-term first coined by Kamel Boulos in 2005, two years earlier than Goodchild's term 'Volunteered Geographic Information'. Six years later (2005-2011), OpenStreetMap and Google Earth (GE) are now full-fledged, crowdsourced 'Wikipedias of the Earth' par excellence, with millions of users contributing their own(More)

This paper presents a systematic design of an efficient cloud framework for wellness self-management devices and services. The innovative wellness self-management devices and services performs the following functions: (1) Collecting GPS, accelerometer, temperature, image data and personal profiles, (2) Fusing data and recognizing the state, (3) Performing(More)
With the rapidly growth of wireless sensor networks (WSN), more and more services provide people up-to-date information such as weather forecast, earthquake reports, fire alarm, even for the surveillance system, and so on. The raw data are usually hard to be understood by users. We had proposed an innovated sensor observation service with web-based and(More)
With the widely used of wellness self-management devices, more and more services provide people up-to-date wellness information such as blood pressure, SpO2, rate of heartbeat, etc. How to gather these data more efficiently is an important issue. Moreover, these data may be combined with the information of geographic location. The data gathering system need(More)
The need for an efficient technique for compression of Images is ever increasing because the raw images require large amount of disk space and large amount of time for images to be sent over the internet or downloaded from the web pages which seems to be very big disadvantage during transmission & storage. In this paper, we propose a simple image(More)
Accuracy of segmentation methods is of great importance in brain image analysis. Tissue classification in Magnetic Resonance brain images (MRI) is an important issue in the analysis of several brain dementias. This paper reviews the performance of segmentation techniques that are used on Brain MRI. A large variety of algorithms for segmentation of Brain MRI(More)
