Selecting tourist attractions to visit at a destination is a main stage in planning a trip. Although various online travel recommendation systems have been developed to support users in the task of travel planning during the last decade, few systems focus on recommending specific tourist attractions. In this paper, an intelligent system to provide(More)

BACKGROUND In the past two decades the east African highlands have experienced several major malaria epidemics. Currently there is a renewed interest in exploring the possibility of anopheline larval control through environmental management or larvicide as an additional means of reducing malaria transmission in Africa. This study examined the landscape(More)
Solifluction patterns on Lee Ridge, Glacier National Park, Montana, USA, were characterized through a combination of field transects, enhanced, digital aircraft data, and geostatistics. The objectives were to (i) assess the role of high spatial resolution digital imagery for mapping the areal extent and spatial pattern of solifluction steps and risers(More)
BACKGROUND Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is endemic in many provinces with high incidence in mainland China, although integrated intervention measures including rodent control, environment management and vaccination have been implemented for over ten years. In this study, we conducted a geographic information system (GIS)-based spatial(More)
Current retrieval methods in geographic image databases use only pixel-by-pixel spectral information. Texture is an important property of geographical images that can improve retrieval eeectiveness and eeciency. In this paper, we present a content-based retrieval approach that utilizes the texture features of geographical images. Various texture features(More)
Medical researchers need improved tools and analysis methods for examining health-related information in spatial and temporal context. Geographic space is the arena within which all social and environmental processes occur. It follows that location is a fundamental dimension of the phenomena examined by environmental and social scientists. Geographic(More)
' The goal of geographical image classification is to. categorize images based on land cover classes. The current &&&ic~ image classification methods, usually use only the pixel-by-pixel spectral informatron. We can utilize the spatial relationship of image pixels with their surrounding pixels to improve classification. In this pa-uer. we exolain the(More)
