Realizing an Open Ubiquitous Environment in a RESTful Way

Yong Liu, Kay Connelly
2008 2008 IEEE International Conference on Web Services

Optimizing Multi-Way Spatial Joins of Web Feature Services

Guiwen Lan, Qiang Zhang, Zhao Yang, Tong Li
2017 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
In a heterogeneous GIS application, a user can issue a query that relates two or more spatial datasets at different WFS servers.  ...  In this paper, we examine the problems of multi-way spatial joins of WFSs, and we present a client-side optimization approach to generate good execution plans for such queries.  ...  In heterogeneous spatial data applications, the answers to some queries may often involve integrating and analyzing data from a number of services [10] [11] [12] .  ...

Genomics and proteomics—the way forward

J. P. A. Baak, E. A. M. Janssen, K. Soreide, R. Heikkilæ
2005 Annals of Oncology  
Secondly, it is not always easy to select the way forward in Genomics and Proteomics. Therefore emerging technologies are updated and the hallmarks of cancer cells briefly discussed.  ...  This will only increase in the future when more will become known about proteins, which not only outnumber the genes, but also can be functionally altered in various ways.  ...  One may ask, how do we grasp this unfolding knowledge? This article will attempt to give a short overview of where we are and how the way forward might be chosen.  ...

Georgios A. Klados, Michalis Zervakis, Rosalia Dacosta-Aguayo, Antonio Fratini, Manousos A. Klados
2019 2019 IEEE 19th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Bioengineering (BIBE)  
The aim of the present study is the development of a user-friendly desktop application to predict the induced cognitive deficits in patients who have suffered a brain lesion.  ...  In addition, we have embedded two types of visualization methods: One to present the slices of the brain mask and another to show the 3D volume of the mask into 3D semitransparent human brain.  ...  Then, given a voxel, it can tell you how strongly this voxel is linked with each one of the key-terms included in Neurosynth's database.  ...

Heidi Jo Newberg, Matthew Newby, Travis Desell, Malik Magdon-Ismail, Boleslaw Szymanski, Carlos Varela
2013 Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union  
AbstractMilkyWay@home is a volunteer computing project that allows people from every country in the world to volunteer their otherwise idle processors to Milky Way research.  ...  We will add additional spatial dimensions as well as kinematic measures in a piecemeal fashion, with the eventual goal of fitting the orbit and parameters of the Milky Way potential (and thus the density  ...  The result is stored in a database, and another work unit (with a new set of parameters to try) is sent out.  ...

Which is the best way to organize/classify images by content?

Anna Bosch, Xavier Muñoz, Robert Martí
2007 Image and Vision Computing  
Thousands of images are generated every day, which implies the necessity to classify, organise and access them using an easy, faster and efficient way.  ...  Many different approaches concerning scene classification have been proposed in the last few years.  ...  The DST (discriminant spectral template) is a function that describes how each spectral component contributes to a spatial envelope property.  ...

HydroBlocks v0.2: enabling a field-scale two-way coupling between the land surface and river networks in Earth system models

Nathaniel W. Chaney, Laura Torres-Rojas, Noemi Vergopolan, Colby K. Fisher
2021 Geoscientific Model Development  
The results show (1) the implementation of the two-way coupling between the land surface and the river network leads to appreciable differences in the simulated spatial heterogeneity of the surface energy  ...  The resulting routing scheme provides an effective and efficient path forward to enable a two-way coupling between the high-resolution river networks and state-of-the-art tiling schemes in ESMs.  ...  We would like to dedicate this article to Peter Metcalfe, who passed away due to a climbing accident in 2018. Peter's help in developing the original HydroBlocks model was instrumental.  ...

Toward Information Infrastructure Studies: Ways of Knowing in a Networked Environment [chapter]

Geoffrey C. Bowker, Karen Baker, Florence Millerand, David Ribes
2009 International Handbook of Internet Research  
We move from a definition of infrastructure to the exploration of a historical context for its development.  ...  Introduction It is rare enough in human history that fundamentally new ways of working are developed, which changed the way in which information was gathered, processed, stored, and reused.  ...  We show in Fig. 1 how their definitions can be ordered along two axes, one explicitly non-spatial and the other spatial: the social/technical and the individual/group or local/global.  ...
