Harmonious Simplification of Isolines

Arthur van Goethem, Wouter Meulemans, Andreas Reimer, Bettina Speckmann, Krzysztof Janowicz, Judith A. Verstegen
2021
Based on principles of manual cartography, we propose an algorithm for simplifying isolines while considering harmony explicitly.  ...  Rather, we need to maintain the harmony between these isolines to make them visually relate and describe the structures of the underlying terrain.  ...  Harmonious simplification algorithm We present a simple, efficient algorithm to compute the harmonious simplification of a sequence of polygonal lines.  ...

Future extreme precipitation intensities based on historic events

Iris Manola, Bart van den Hurk, Hans De Moel, Jeroen Aerts
2017 Hydrology and Earth System Sciences Discussions  
The second method simulates the same event by using the convective-permitting NWP model Harmonie, for both present day and future warm conditions.  ...  In a warmer climate, it is expected that precipitation intensities will increase, and form a considerable risk of high impact of precipitation extremes.  ...  We would like to thank KNMI for their support to offer access to the Harmonie model.  ...

Future extreme precipitation intensities based on a historic event

Iris Manola, Bart van den Hurk, Hans De Moel, Jeroen C. J. H. Aerts
2018 Hydrology and Earth System Sciences  
The second method simulates the same event by using the convective-permitting numerical weather model (NWP) model HARMONIE, for both present-day and future warmer conditions.  ...  A comparison of the three methods shows comparable intensity changes, ranging from below the Clausius–Clapeyron (CC) scaling to a 3 times CC increase per degree of warming.  ...  We would like to thank KNMI for their support to offer access to the HARMONIE model.  ...

Spelling space: A computational test bed for phonological and morphological changes in Dutch spelling

2006 Written Language & Literacy  
In general we argue that artificial learning studies are a tool in obtaining objective measurements on a spelling system that may be of help in spelling reform processes.  ...  We present experimental results with artificial learners that show a competition effect between the two principles: adhering more to one principle leads to more violations of the other.  ...  The overall harmony of this spelling has clearly deteriorated from the perspective of learnability of the two dimensions.  ...
