Beyond mapping: a case for geospatial analytics in humanitarian health

P. Gregg Greenough, Erica L. Nelson
2019 Conflict and Health  
However, the utilization of these data in the humanitarian health arena is predominantly in thematic map format, thereby limiting the full insight and utility of geospatial information.  ...  The field of humanitarian health, which is inextricably bounded by geography and resource limitations, should leverage the unique capacities of spatial methods and strategically integrate geospatial analytics  ...  This seasoned operational agency serves as an open repository of graphic outputs, interactive tools, common operational (including geocoded) datasets across all sectors, and shared maps and rapid assessment  ...

Efficient Factor Graph Fusion for Multi-Robot Mapping and Beyond

Ramkumar Natarajan, Michael A. Gennert
2018 2018 21st International Conference on Information Fusion (FUSION)  
The time taken for either of the ordering schemes are shown graphically using an encounter map in Figure 6 .3 and 6.4.  ...  The encounter maps contain the smoothed, centralized and final trajectory of all the robots using the combined information during every encounter.  ...  In reality the robot motion is subjected to noise and hence the actual velocity differ from the commanded one.  ...
