    Multi-Agent Geo-Simulation aims to simulate phenomena involving a large number of autonomous situated actors (implemented as software agents) evolving and interacting within a Virtual representation of the Geographic Environment (VGE). Motion planning is a critical issue since it corresponds to one of the most important activities of agents moving in a complex and large-scale VGE. There is also a ... View full abstract»

    Spatial relations are used in different fields of image understanding, spatial reasoning, linguistics description of scene and new fields like computing with words. These spatial relations could be used to detect change in a spatial scene, either it is a change in topological structure or a change in metric information. Three type of spatial relations can be described by fuzzy Allen histograms. As... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an evaluation of the Heuristic for Locating Cells (HLC) for identifying optimal sites in raster maps. The optimal sites are the result of a trade-off between the on-site suitability of individual cells, their spatial configuration, and their off-site impact at the watershed outlet. The evaluation is targeted to a case of reforestation in two sub-basins within the Tabacay catchm... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the problem of reducing cluttering in interactive maps. It presents a new technique for visualizing large spatial datasets using hierarchical aggregation. The technique creates a hierarchical clustering tree, which is subsequently used to extract clusters that can be displayed at a given scale without cluttering the map. Voronoi polygons are used as aggregation symbols to repr... View full abstract»

    During the last decade, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) considerably evolved: the amount of stored data explodes and the tools used to treat them have been improved. During the same period the arrival of very high spatial resolution satellite images (less than 1 meter) gives an inexhaustible source of information actually largely unexploited. We generally use images (satellite or airborne) in... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we consider a traffic information sharing system based on Floating Car Data (FCD). FCD is one of the methods used to gather traffic information. It uses vehicles as sensor nodes that transmit their speed to the server. The server then broadcasts the updated speed data to all vehicles on the road so that vehicles can compute optimal travel routes based on current traffic data. The co... View full abstract»

    Satellite imaging is well known as a useful tool in many scientific disciplines and various applications. Google Earth, with its free access, is now - thanks to increasing resolution and precision - such a tool. It improves the visualization and dissemination of scientific data, and opens doors to new discoveries. For example, many Nasca geoglyphs are now visible to Google Earth and so are the ori...

    This paper used the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) to investigate the spatial distribution of annual soil loss in the upper basin of Miyun reservoir in China. Among the soil erosion factors, the vegetative cover or C factor has been one of the most difficult to estimate over broad geographic areas. In this paper, the C factor was estimated based on a multivariate regression analysis,... View full abstract»

    Due to the fast growth of construction technologies and increasing demands on the efficient use of land, human living space are expanded from on the surface to above and under the surface. This has raised the need for 3D cadastre by recognizing that the current cadastre system based on 2D was not appropriate to reflect the trend. This paper proposed the 3D cadastre data model that is appropriate t... View full abstract»

    In the last decade, rapidly declining sensor costs triggered intense research in sensor technologies and vice versa. This fact led to the deployment of a number of sensor networks. However, these sensor networks tend to be deployed in monolithic stovepipe-like systems, limiting interoperability and reusability of both data and workflow components. This paper presents the Live Geography approach, w... View full abstract»

    As sensor networks grow the amount of sensor measurements increases. This large amount of data is crucial for monitoring systems but useless if it is not trustworthy. In this paper different approaches for the validation of sensor measurements using standardized encodings and services specified by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) are discussed. Approaches based on current OGC specifications fo... View full abstract»
