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)
Today, we observe a wide use of geospatial databases that are implemented in many forms (e.g. transactional centralized systems, distributed databases, multidimensional datacubes). Among those possibilities, the multidimensional datacube is more appropriate to support interactive analysis and to guide the organization's strategic decisions, especially when(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)
The configuration of mental representation of space plays a major role in successful navigational activities. Therefore, navigational assistance for pedestrians who are blind should help them to better configure their mental representation of the environment. In this paper, we propose and exploit a computational model for the mental representation of urban(More)
Existing Spatial OLAP (SOLAP) applications are targeted towards desktop computer environments. In order to enable geospatial decision support in mobility contexts, SOLAP requires some modifications. This paper describes a solution, based on service-oriented architec-tures and Web services technologies, designed to adapt SOLAP data cubes to the requirements(More)
