  1. 1. Climate vulnerability assessment methodology : Agriculture under climate change in the Nordic region

    Author : Lotten Wiréhn; Tina-Simone Schmid Neset; Björn-Ola Linnér; Giuseppe Feola; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Agriculture; Assessment methodology; Climate change; Geographic Visualization; Indicator-based methods; Vulnerability; Bedömningsmetodologi; Geografisk Visualisering; Indikatorbaserade metoder; Jordbruk; Klimatförändringar; Sårbarhet;

    Abstract : Food security and climate change mitigation are crucial missions for the agricultural sector and for global work on sustainable development. Concurrently, agricultural production is directly dependent on climatic conditions, making climate change adaptation strategies essential for the agricultural sector. READ MORE

  2. 2. PERFORMANCE VISUALIZATION OF URBAN SYSTEMS

    Author : Tim Johansson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : The planning, construction, management and use of our built environment are affected by diverse social, economic and environmental factors. Sustainable urban development is dependent on the understanding of the complex relations between the built environment, the social activities that take place over time and the interaction with the natural environment.

  3. 3. Computational and Visual Tools for Geospatial Multi-Criteria Decision-Making

    Author : Goran Milutinovic; Stefan Seipel; Ulla Ahonen-Jonnarth; S. Anders Brandt; Gennady Andrienko; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geographic information systems; multi-criteria decision-making; interactive visualization; even swaps; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development; Intelligent industri; Intelligent Industry;

    Abstract : Geospatial multi-criteria decision-making usually concerns quasi-continuous choice models, with the number of alternatives constrained only by the limits of the used representation model. This sets high demands on the decision-making methods used in the context. READ MORE

  4. 4. Topological and Scaling Analysis of Geospatial Big Data

    Author : Ding Ma; Bin Jiang; Shaowen Wang; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Third definition of fractal; scaling; topology; power law; head tail breaks; ht-index; complex network; geospatial big data; natural cities; natural streets; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Geographic information science and systems face challenges related to understanding the instinctive heterogeneity of geographic space, since conventional geospatial analysis is mainly founded on Euclidean geometry and Gaussian statistics. This thesis adopts a new paradigm, based on fractal geometry and Paretian statistics for geospatial analysis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Terrain Object recognition and Context Fusion for Decision Support

    Author : Fredrik Lantz; Erland Jungert; Per Svensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nformation Fusion; Terrain Elevation Model; Driveability; Context Fusion; Terrain Object Recognition; Computer science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : A laser radar can be used to generate 3D data about the terrain in a very high resolution. The development of new support technologies to analyze these data is critical to the effective and efficient use of these data in decision support systems, due to the large amounts of data that are generated.
