Fostering Exploration of Georeferenced Data Semantics for Supporting E-government Initiatives
TLDR
The semantics of the georeferenced data were formalized and a prototype of data retriever was built, showing the positive impact of integrating the concept of tabular view with an interactive map component in order to facilitate data interpretation and the navigation among semantically annotated data views.
Towards big data behavioral analysis: rethinking GPS trajectory mining approaches from geographic, semantic, and quantitative perspectives
TLDR
The results suggested that to gain insights into the typological characteristics of human behaviors related to the built environments, the contribution of trajectory data alone was limited, hence, conventional field surveys and questionnaires which contain information on individual characteristics and spatial features should be used in conjunction.
Taking speed seriously: motion, simultaneity, and context in map-making for historical analysis
ABSTRACT This article discusses ways of representing motion and simultaneity in cartography regarding historical processes. The main goal is to debate the visual language necessary for representing
Model of Integrated Pollution Assessment Atmospheric Pollution in Urban Areas Associated with High Levels of Industrialization
The air environment in Bien Hoa city has been polluted by dust, carbon monoxide and lead metal pollution levels increase in the dry season and decrease gradually in the rainy season. Industrial zones
Asynchronous multi-decadal time-scale series of biotic and abiotic responses to precipitation during the last 1300 years
TLDR
It is suggested that PqPann-based decadal- to centennial-scale climatic change reconstruction should take biotic lags into account, although the lags can be ignored on the millennial scale.
Data-driven approach to characterize urban vitality: how spatiotemporal context dynamically defines Seoul’s nighttime
TLDR
This paper applies a functional principal component analysis (FPCA) on 24-hour-based dataset of pedestrian traffic in Seoul in order to make a data-driven extraction of principal components that characterize the city’s unique patterns of urban vitality.
The impact of particulate matter on allergy risk among adults: integrated exposure assessment
TLDR
Allergy risk increased significantly with increasing exposure to PM10, and adults exposed to the highest levels of PM10 exposure had a twice-higher risk of allergies than adults exposure to the lowest levels.
Five-year lung cancer mortality risk analysis and topography in Xuan Wei: a spatiotemporal correlation analysis
TLDR
Xuan Wei lung cancer mortality has increased continuously since the third national retrospective surveys on the causes of death by the Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China (2004–2005), especially for local women and residents over 35 years of age.
