Understanding Dynamics of Geographic Domains by Kathleen S. Hornsby, May Yuan

By Kathleen S. Hornsby, May Yuan

Even supposing the dynamic element of the realm is widely known, info platforms have lagged of their skill to symbolize those dynamics and supply help for clients and analysts, particularly those that paintings with dynamic geographic domain names. a suite of peer-reviewed articles, figuring out Dynamics of Geographic domain names showcases new examine and views on theoretical features of geographic dynamics and together with novel information modeling and visualization-related stories. Multidisciplinary ebook Brings jointly revered experts Editors Kathleen Stewart Hornsby and should Yuan assemble favorite and revered experts to create a multidisciplinary publication that mixes insurance of issues from the views of GIS, computing device technology, snapshot processing, and knowledge and knowledge processing. Containing an 8-page colour insert, the e-book is split into 3 sections that discover the conceptual and cognitive underpinnings of geographic dynamics and knowledge modeling themes; the comparable analytical and computational methods; and issues on the subject of the visualization and simulation of geographic dynamics. A Milestone for study advancements a brief evaluate of the contents and participants unearths the breadth and intensity of data supplied. Incorporating theoretical, cognitive, methodological, and utilized articles, the insurance is heavily with regards to the nationwide learn time table on Geographic details technology proposed via the collage Consortium of Geographic details technology (UCGIS). certainly, the rules for this booklet started with a workshop co-sponsored by means of the UCGIS with regards to geographic dynamics. This makes the ebook not just a top-notch reference but additionally a milestone for learn advancements within the box.

Chroniques de geographie economique

Les progrès de l. a. technological know-how économique sont rapides autour los angeles Seconde Guerre mondiale : l'économétrie s'affermit, l. a. macroéconomie prend son essor et les comptabilités nationales donnent enfin des bases solides à l'intervention des États. Rédigées de 1966 à 1985, les chroniques de géographie économique visent à informer les géographes de ces mouvements d'idées.

2005), to the social networks formed in online learning communities (Russo and Koesten 2005). Although geographers have long embraced the concept of networks at a conceptual level (Barrett et al. 1999), the networks are largely notional, and examples that employ a large body of existing and emerging complex network theory are only just starting to appear (Grabher 2006; Grubesic and Murray 2006). Advancements in the understanding of dynamic geographic phenomena can benefit significantly from the wealth of advances that are occurring in the area of complex network theory (Barabási 2002; Newman 2003).

In summary, then, the role of GIScience in this context of geographic dynamics is to find general structures that support the domain. These may take the form of algorithms, simulation models, data models, languages, standards, knowledge about the modeling and propagation of uncertainty, and so on. By looking for generic solutions, GIScience pursues structures that are sharable, formal and unambiguous, reusable, and thus efficient. Fields and Objects The distinction between continuous-field and discrete-object conceptualizations appears to lie at the most fundamental level of GIScience.

In the case of citation networks, new articles only cite articles that already exist. An emergent property of this type of network is that the more citations an article has, the more likely that it will be cited again as the network continues to grow. In turn, the number of links increases and, commensurately, the likelihood of additional links increases in concert. The result of preferential attachment during network growth often leads to the formation of a scale-free network (Barabási 2002). A scale-free network is one whose degree distribution — essentially a histogram of the number of edges connected to each vertex — follows a power-law.
