Spatial scale, time and process in mega-events: The complexity of host community perspectives on neighbourhood change

Julie Clark, Ade Kearns, Claire Cleland
2016 Cities  
Similarly, attention to the 'event' aspect underplays the long process of bidding and preparation before any putative legacy of urban transformation for local people.  ...  A focus on the 'mega' aspect of hallmark events can divert attention from the microthose local communities who are most impacted by the event.  ...  GoWell: Studying Change in Glasgow's East End project is funded by the Scottish Government, NHS Health Scotland and sportscotland. Claire Cleland's input  ...

Perspective Alignment in Spatial Language [chapter]

Luc Steels, Martin Loetzsch
2009 Spatial Language and Dialogue  
It is well known that perspective alignment plays a major role in the planning and interpretation of spatial language.  ...  In order to understand the role of perspective alignment and the cognitive processes involved, we have made precise complete cognitive models of situated embodied agents that self-organise a communication  ...  This research was funded and carried out at the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris with additional funding from the EU FET ECAgents Project IST-1940.  ...

A Conceptual Framework for Large-Scale Event Perception Evaluation with Spatial-Temporal Scales in Sustainable Smart Cities

Olga Pilipczuk
2021 Sustainability  
The placemaking process is highly dependent on people's perception of places, events and situations in which they find themselves.  ...  In order to acquire the opinions, a questionnaire with spatial–temporal measurement scales was applied.  ...  The process begins from the event analysis.  ...

Typological and Computational Investigations of Spatial Perspective [chapter]

Martin Loetzsch, Remi van Trijp, Luc Steels
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Following a cognitive-functional approach, we first investigate the cross-linguistic variety in spatial language, with special attention for spatial perspective.  ...  We then explain how experiments in artificial language evolution can contribute to that and give a concrete example.  ...  This research was funded and carried out at the Sony Computer Science Laboratory in Paris with additional funding from the EU FET ECAgents Project IST-1940.  ...

Textural Composition And Its Space

Kerry Hagan
2008 Proceedings of the SMC Conferences  
This piece utilizes Gaussian and uniform random variable generators for micro-level events and spatialization, while Markovian stochastic processes control structural events.  ...  And, all parameters include the spatialization of the events themselves [6] .  ...

Once upon a Spacetime: Visual Storytelling in Cognitive and Geotemporal Information Spaces

2018 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
From a cognitive point of view, it is important to assist users in reconnecting these multiple perspectives into a coherent picture-e.g., by utilizing coherence techniques like seamless transitions.  ...  This paper reflects on the internalization of stories from a cognitive perspective and outlines a visualization framework for supporting the analysis of narrative geotemporal data.  ...  Acknowledgments: The authors want to thank the team of the APIS project at the Austrian Center of Digital Humanities (ACDH) in Vienna, as well as Günther Schreder and Saminu Salisu for contributing to  ...

Deploying Spatial Data for Coastal Community Resilience: A Review from the Managerial Perspective

Xiameng Huang, Yanqing Song, Xuan Hu
2021 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health  
The use of spatial data for coastal community resilience applications has diversified as a consequence of the increasing availability of data, and extensive development in data processing.  ...  Based on the findings of the analysis, the authors conclude that the managerial perspective of deploying spatial data in coastal hazards are understudies, and outline problem formulation, mission prioritization  ...  In this step, studies that are not directly touching managerial perspective or spatial data were removed.  ...

Perspective taking in language: integrating the spatial and action domains

Madeleine E. L. Beveridge, Martin J. Pickering
2013 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Third, we review evidence showing that perspective taking in spatial language is a flexible process.  ...  a different spatial perspective), and perspective taking in action language (the extent to which they simulate an action as though they were performing that action).  ...  The above results show that spatial-perspective taking, like action-perspective taking, is a flexible process.  ...

Infectious Diseases as Socio‐Spatial Processes: The COVID‐19 Outbreak In Germany

Andreas Kuebart, Martin Stabler
2020 Tijdschrift voor economische en sociale geografie  
By identifying key processes of disease diffusion in space, we can explain the spatial patterns of the COVID-19 outbreak in Germany, which did not feature the well-known patterns of spatially contagious  ...  This paper argues that outbreaks of infectious diseases should be understood as socio-spatial processes with complex geographies.  ...  This reasoning is followed in this study by explicitly taking up a process perspective.  ...

Toward an Embodied Cognitive Semantics

Kurt Stocker
2015 Cognitive Semantics  
It will be shown that there is much empirical evidence that thought is spatialized and that our eyes project this spatialized thought into the external (usually near) space in front of our body.  ...  It will be shown that there is much empirical evidence that thought is spatialized and that our eyes project this spatialized thought into the external (usually near) space in front of our body.  ...  The work carried out in this article is part of my habilitation thesis at the University of Zurich (parts from the synopsis and outlook sections of the thesis).  ...

Neural correlates of two imagined egocentric transformations

Sarah H. Creem-Regehr, Jayson A. Neil, Hsiang J. Yeh
2007 NeuroImage  
Previous behavioral and neuroimaging work suggested that hand rotations would rely on dynamic and biomechanical processing of body-part relations recruiting a motor processing system, whereas perspective  ...  Two egocentric spatial transformation tasks, hand and perspective rotation, were compared using the same visual stimulus within both block and eventrelated functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)  ...  In contrast, perspective rotation tasks, while necessarily involving a transformation of the body to some extent, rely on visual-spatial processing in an extrinsic coordinate system in order to update  ...
