Venkateswara Rao Kagita, Arun K Pujari, Vineet Padmanabhan, Vikas Kumar

A System for Land Development Approval Management using Geographic Information Systems - A Case Study of Thimbirigasyaya Ward, Colombo

H. H. Leelananda, N. T. S. Wijeselera, T. A. Peiris
2005 Engineer Journal of the Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka  
The system developed using GIS was verified for computational accuracy using manual calculations. Adequacy checks were done with respect to the approved regulations.  ...  Most of the countries use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for similar land management work.  ...  Randomly selected ten applications submitted for the UDA approval were tested using the GIS for the fulfillment of the approval/rejection issued by UDA.  ...

Multi-Winner Voting with Approval Preferences [article]

Martin Lackner, Piotr Skowron
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The corresponding multi-winner voting rules are called approval-based committee (ABC) rules. Due to the simplicity of approval preferences, ABC rules are widely suitable for practical use.  ...  Multi-winner voting is the process of selecting a fixed-size set of representative candidates based on voters' preferences.  ...  Let us also mention that Bei et al. [8] studied a related model, but there the goal is to select the committee of maximal cardinality that satisfies the attribute-level constraints.  ...

Online Approval Committee Elections [article]

Virginie Do, Matthieu Hervouin, Jérôme Lang, Piotr Skowron
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Assume the voters use approval ballots, i.e., for each candidate they only specify whether they consider it acceptable or not. This setting can be seen as a voting variant of choosing k secretaries.  ...  Our contribution is twofold. (1) We assess to what extent the committees that are computed online can proportionally represent the voters. (2) If a prior probability over candidate approvals is available  ...  We also thank the IJCAI-22 anonymous reviewers for useful comments and suggestions.  ...

National Drug Formulary review of statin therapeutic group using the multiattribute scoring tool

Azuana Ramli, Syed Mohamed Aljunid, Saperi Sulong, Faridah Aryani Md Yusof
2013 Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management  
The multiattribute scoring tool (MAST) systematizes the evaluation of the drug attributes to facilitate the drug selection process.  ...  Effective selection of the best drugs to remain in the formulary can become complex due to the multiple drug attributes involved, and is made worse by the limited time and resources available.  ...  Our special thanks is due to the members of the Drug Scoring Technical Committee; Anis Talib, Aznida Abd Aziz, Azuwana Supian, Noraini Saari, Rosliza Lajis, Haarathi Chandriah, Hariana Haris, Hayati Alwani  ...

Stakeholder position paper: The need for antimicrobial use data for risk assessment

Scott A. McEwen, Randall S. Singer
2006 Preventive Veterinary Medicine  
This paper provides some examples of risk assessments that have been conducted with and without antimicrobial use data, and identifies possible benefits and applications of quantitative antimicrobial use  ...  Risk assessment seeks to estimate the probability and impact of human health effects due to antimicrobial resistance arising from antimicrobial use in animals.  ...  Attribution is relevant on two levels. First, there is the question of whether the resistance is attributable to the use in animals.  ...
