Mother Fugger: Mining Historical Manuscripts with Local Color Patches

Qiang Zhu, Eamonn Keogh
2010 2010 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining  
While there is an active research community pursuing data mining of text from historical manuscripts, there has been very little work that exploits the rich color information which is often present.  ...  In this work we introduce a simple color measure which both addresses and exploits typical features of historical manuscripts.  ...  We have shown our ideas allow true data mining, rather than just query-by-content for the domain of historical manuscripts.  ...

As such, pikas may be susceptible to local extirpation in the face of global warming (Beever 2002).  ...  American pikas (Ochotona princeps Richardson) are small (130-g), diurnal alpine lagomorphs that inhabit talus patches in the mountains of western North America (Smith and Weston 1990) .  ...  Smith, and 3 anonymous reviewers gave helpful comments and criticisms on earlier drafts of this manuscript. P. Nichols provided helpful discussions, help with fieldwork, and endless encouragement. R.  ...

The Miedzianka Mountain Ore Deposit (Świętokrzyskie Mountains, Poland) as a Site of Historical Mining and Geological Heritage: A Case Study of the Teresa Adit

Agnieszka Ciurej, Monika Struska, Anna Wolska, Wojciech Chudzik
2021 Minerals  
In several sites of the adit unique features can be observed, such as: (1) old mining works—galleries carved in the rock back in the 19th century; (2) interesting vein mineralization with secondary-colored  ...  The proposal to make the Teresa adit available to tourists is in line with the tendency to protect the post-industrial landscape associated with former mining activities.  ...  The authors are also grateful to two anonymous reviewers for constructive suggestions and thorough, critical comments on the manuscript.  ...

Monitoring Forest Change in Landscapes Under-Going Rapid Energy Development: Challenges and New Perspectives

Paul Pickell, Sarah Gergel, Nicholas Coops, David Andison
2014 Land  
We discuss the challenges associated with characterizing ecological change related to energy resource development using North America as an exemplar.  ...  Characterizing anthropogenic disturbances using conventional patch-based disturbance measures will tend to underestimate the ecological impacts of energy development.  ...  The lead author wrote early drafts of the manuscript with contributions from the other authors through the editorial process. Conflicts of Interest The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

New Myloplus from Essequibo River basin, Guyana, with discussion on the taxonomic status of Myleus pacu (Characiformes: Serrasalmidae)

Marcelo C. Andrade, Hernán López-Fernández, Elford A. Liverpool
2019 Neotropical Ichthyology  
The new species is similar to Myleus pacu and Myloplus planquettei in its silver to purplish black coloration and its overall morphology, and has a putative syntopic distribution with those species.  ...  The new species is, however, readily distinguishable from the other two by meristic counts of the unpaired fins and by differences in color pattern, primarily in males.  ...  However, coloration in Myleus pacu consists of a solid terracotta red background, with males showing brownish black patches scattered on the flanks.  ...

Integrating Landsat Time Series Observations and Corona Images to Characterize Forest Change Patterns in a Mining Region of Nanjing, Eastern China from 1967 to 2019

Yali Zhang, Wenjuan Shen, Mingshi Li, Yingying Lv
2020 Remote Sensing  
The obtained findings can provide mining site restoration managers with clear, long-term forest change information and mine restoration assessment methods.  ...  Long-term surface mining and subsequent vegetation recovery greatly alter land cover types, reshape landscape patterns and impose several impacts on local ecosystem services.  ...  All authors have read and agreed to the published version of the manuscript.  ...

2009 Carbon Balance and Management  
Results: Transport-related emissions, evaluated as a fraction of transported wood carbon at 4 points in time on a landscape in western Montana (USA), rose from 0.5% in 1988 to 1.7% in 2004 as local mills  ...  The monitoring approach used here, which draws only from widely available monitoring data, could readily be adapted to provide current and historical estimates of transport emissions in a consistent way  ...  harvests (colored patches) and a single mill (red triangle) in Ravalli County.  ...
