  1. 1. Landslide Susceptibility Analysis Using Open Geo-spatial Data and Frequency Ratio Technique

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : TARIK EMRE YORULMAZ; [2022]
    Keywords : Landslides; Hazard mapping; Geographic Information Systems GIS ; Spatial analysis; Frequency ratio FR ; Area Under a Curve AUC ;

    Abstract : Landslide susceptibility maps are useful for spatial decision-making to minimize the lossof lives and properties. There are many studies related to the development of landslidesusceptibility maps using various methods such as Analytic Hierarchy Process, Weight ofEvidence and Logistic Regression. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessing the potential impacts of tall buildings on a predominantly low-rise built urban environment : A case study from Västerås, Sweden

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för geografi

    Author : Vera Schwab; [2022]
    Keywords : Tall buildings; The City Image; 3D modelling; GIS; Shadow Analysis; Visibility Analysis; Västerås;

    Abstract : Tall buildings have been constructed in many cities over the world to accommodate the demographic and economic growth in urban areas. These structures, however, have been widely discussed concerning their potential negative impacts on urban life. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adapting Marching Squares to operate on sparse matrices

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Tahir Mert Karkan; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Marching Squares is an algorithm that iterates over a given matrix filled with data points and outputs lines depending on the values in the grid. The algorithm iterates over the matrix four data points at a time in the shape of a square, hence its name. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vad är väl en stig i skogen? : förbättrat beslutsunderlag vid skoglig planering

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Richard Engholm; Victor Göransson; [2022]

    Abstract : Skog, som täcker 69% av Sveriges landareal, är en viktig resurs för människor. Skogen tillhandahåller både trädbaserad råvara och erbjuder sociala värden för rekreation. En av de vanligaste fritidsaktiviteterna för svenskar är att röra sig i skog och mark. Rekreation i skogliga miljöer minskar stress och främjar den mentala hälsan. READ MORE

  5. 5. An Analysis of Spatially-enabled Mobile Decision Support Systems in a Collaborative Decision-Making Environment

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Mark Overton; [2022]
    Keywords : Geography; GIS; multi criteria decision analysis; mobile decision support system; route optimization; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The effectiveness of decision-making processes has been enhanced by integrating multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) and geographic information system (GIS) methods to solve more complex spatial problems that were not possible to solve using conventional GIS methods. A spatial decision support system (SDSS) supports various stakeholders in the decision-making process, by processing data using GIS-MCDA methods. READ MORE
