NDLR : Article issu du Séminai re ADEM E « Pollution atmosphérique et charges critiques: Bilan et perspectives des recherches menées en France " , 15 mai 2001, Paris (MATE). Résumé Dans le but d'assurer une mei lleure gestion et une meilleure diffusion des données concernant les charges critiques acides et azotées pour le territoire français, après une étude de faisabilité, une première application de système de gestion de base de données a été proposée. Dans un deuxième temps, une phase

D'autre part, outre l'extension de la base, un développement déterminant a permis le couplage entre la base de données BDCC et un système d'information géographique (Map Info 4.5). Dans ce travail, les possibilités de développement d'Oracle ont permis d'apporter des modifications à la structu re définie initialement et d'étendre la possibilité de la basepar ajout de nouvelles tables d'une part, et par ajout de nouvelles fonctions statistiques indispensables à l'exploitation des données de la base, d'autre part. L'évolution de la base permet en outre de pouvoirimporter et exporter par une procédure conviviale les fichiers sous format Excel. Une mise en sécurité des données de la base a été réalisée. Dans chaque cas, il s'agissait de rendre plus efficace le traitement, la gestion et l'acquisition des nouvelles données au sein du système. Ainsi, contrainte par les besoins au niveau européen et par le développement informatique de la base, la nouvelle structuration des tables et ses avantages dansla gestion des données sont présentées. Enfin, le développement du couplage entre la base de données et le SIG est illustré par un exemple d'application de liaison entre les données de la base et des cartes existantes de valeurs seuils importées à partir d'un autre SIG (Arc-Info). Les possibilités de croisement de données existantes et d'importation de cartes sont nombreuses. Abstract A first application of a data base management system was improved in order to ensure a better management of the critical loads data for France. The development was ensured starting from the first structure known as of level 1 using the RDBMS Oracle 7.3 for Windows NT. In addition to the extension of the base, the link between the data base BDCC and a GIS (Map Info4.5) has been performed . In this work, the possibilities of Oracle all owed to modify theinitiallydefined structure and to extend the base by addition of new tables on one hand, and by addition of new statistical functions essential to the exploitation of the data of the base, on the other hand. The evolution of the database allows to import and export by a user-friendly procedure the files under Excel format. A setting in data security of the base was carried out. In each case, it was a question of making the treatment, the management and the acquisition of the new data within the system more effective.

Implementation of Tiled Vector Services: A Case Study

Jens Ingensand, Marion Nappez, Cédric Moullet, Loïc Gasser, Olivier Ertz, Sarah Composto
2016 International Conference Geographic Information Science  
Vector tiling aims at cutting vector data into smaller entities. It offers several opportunities, especially for the development of web-mapping systems, such as the possibilities to apply different styles, to access attributes or to render 3D data. Today no open and widely adopted standard exists for the implementation of web services involving vector tiles. In this paper we investigate several important parameters that need to be considered for the implementation of vector tile services. We

Past studies conducted in urban areas analyzed the impact of the presence of green spaces on public health, and highlighted in particular the psychological benefits of interacting with nature. To investigate a supposed relationship between overweight and dense built environment, we focused on the State of Geneva, Switzerland, and calculated the correlation between Body Mass Index (BMI) in a representative sample of 6663 adults and the percentage of natural areas at the locations where these

To this end, we used populationbased health data from the "Bus Santé" study (Geneva University Hospitals) and multi-scale land cover maps obtained by means of satellite images and LiDAR data classification. We found little correlation between BMI (as a proxy for health) and land cover data and were not able to verify the working hypothesis at local and regional scales. However, an important phenomenon highlighted here is the difference in the results obtained between the city center and the whole State.

2019 Proceedings of the ICA  
<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Data quality is the primary concern for researchers working on citizen science projects. The collected data by citizen science participants are heterogeneous and therefore must be validated. There are several validation approaches depending on the theme and objective of the citizen science project, but the most common approach is the expert review. While expert validation is essential in citizen science projects, considering it as the only validation approach can

This project aims at introducing an automatic filtering mechanism for a biodiversity citizen science project. The goals of this project are to first use an available historical database of the local species to filter out the unusual ones, and second to use machine learning and image recognition techniques to verify if the observation image corresponds with the right species type. The submissions that does not successfully pass the automatic filtering will be flagged as unusual and goes through expert review. The objective is on the one hand to simplify validation task by the experts, and on the other hand to increase participants' motivation by giving them real-time feedback on their submissions. Finally, the flagged observations will be classified as valid, valid but uncommon, and invalid, and the observation outliers (rare species) can be identified for each specific region.</p>

<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> This paper aims at underling difficulties regarding the establishment of citizen engagement processes. The specificity of citizen engagement processes lies in their evolution over time where objectives, constraints, and latitudes of a given project influence the relevance of the tools offered to citizens. Three categories of urban projects (trans-urban, major metropolitan, architectural design) have been described. These classes range from a local space with short

Throughout this study, major challenges that have been experienced during the design a 3D participatory platform are identified. They range from the issues of implementing adequate tools according to the project (temporal and spatial scalability), the participation forms (passive, consultative or interactive), to the difficulties of convincing the authorities to use new bottom-up methods. Finally, a conceptual framework for the creation of a 3D participatory platform has been introduced. It can be summarized by three major steps: (1) Meeting the needs of a decision maker, (2) Designing the participation tool in accordance with the context, (3) Translating collected raw data in order to respond to the initial request.</p>

2007 Physical Review E  
The tortoise beetle Charidotella egregia is able to modify the structural color of its cuticle reversibly, when disturbed by stressful external events. After field observations, measurements of the optical properties in the two main stable color states and scanning electron microscope and transmission electron microscope investigations, a physical mechanism is proposed to explain the color switching of this insect. It is shown that the gold coloration displayed by animals at rest arises from a
more » ... hirped multilayer reflector maintained in a perfect coherent state by the presence of humidity in the porous patches within each layer, while the red color displayed by disturbed animals results from the destruction of this reflector by the expulsion of the liquid from the porous patches, turning the multilayer into a translucent slab that leaves an unobstructed view of the deeper-lying, pigmented red substrate. This mechanism not only explains the change of hue but also the change of scattering mode from specular to diffuse. Quantitative modeling is developed in support of this analysis.

Nicolas Blanc, Zhan Liu, Olivier Ertz, Diego Rojas, Romain Sandoz, Maria Sokhn, Jens Ingensand, Jean-Christophe Loubier
2019 2019 16th IEEE Annual Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC)  
The availability of global and scalable tools to assess disabled pedestrian level of service (DPLoS) is a real need, yet still a challenge in today's world. This is due to the lack of tools that can ease the measurement of a level of service adapted to disabled people, and also to the limitation concerns about the availability of information regarding the existing level of service, especially in real time. This paper describes preliminary results to progress on those needs. It also includes a

The main topics are how to use advanced computer vision technologies, and how to benefit from the prevalence of handheld devices. Our approach intends to show how crowdsourcing techniques can improve data quality by gathering and combining up-to-date data with valuable field observations.
