The elements of probabilistic time geography

Stephan Winter, Zhang-Cai Yin
2010 Geoinformatica  
Time geography uses space-time volumes to represent the possible locations of a mobile agent over time in a x-y-t space.  ...  This paper starts with the standard assumption of time geography (no further knowledge), and develops the appropriate probability distribution by three equivalent approaches.  ...  Acknowledgements This work has been supported by grants of the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Research Council (DP0878119).  ...

Directed movements in probabilistic time geography

Stephan Winter, Zhang-Cai Yin
2010 International Journal of Geographical Information Science  
The paper is a second, after introducing first probabilistic time geography for space-time cones. With cones and prisms, the elementary space-time volumes of time geography are provided.  ...  This paper studies probabilistic time geography for space-time prisms, i.e., for situations where observers know the location of an agent at one time and then again at another time.  ...  Stephan Winter has been supported by grants of the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Research Council (DP0878119).  ...

The Mental Map of Neighborhoods in Bucharest Introductive Study of Mental Geography

Cristian Ciobanu
2008 Human Geographies: Journal of Studies and Research in Human Geography  
Mental geography appears where human geography meets psychology and studies the perception of space in all its forms.  ...  Being unofficial, the limits, names, and even existence of most of the neighborhoods are disputed.  ...  The studies of urban geography refer to functional areas and other elements of urban planning and the direct opinion of the inhabitants is neglected (Carter, 1990) .  ...

Managing Typhoon Related Crop Risk at WPC

Craig W. Tillman, Joel K. Sivillo, Sergei A. Frolov
2010 Agriculture and Agricultural Science Procedia  
Risk management of crop related exposures in coastal regions can be enhanced through a program of hazards modeling and real-time forecasting.  ...  This paper outlines a suite of techniques focused on building a probabilistic understanding of crop risk from tropical cyclones.  ...  The principal advantage of the ADCIRC comes from an adaptable finite element approach that allows very flexible assignment of grid density, according to the complexities of geography, bathymetry or loss  ...

Book Reviews

2010 Geographical Analysis  
These topics are given only a brief presentation, and the reader is left with the impression that these are the only areas of probabilistic modeling in geography.  ...  The subject matter of Spatial Time Series is located at the interface between geography and systems engineering.  ...

Logic of Simpson paradox

Jacek Malinowski
2005 Logic and Logical Philosophy  
The main aim of this paper is to elucidate, from a logical point of view, the phenomenon of Simpson reversal -the paradox of a statistical reasoning.  ...  We define a binary relation of supporting in the following way: a sentence A supports a sentence B if and only if the probability of B is higher when A is true, than when A is false.  ...  its negation on the whole population and at the same time E is less probable than its negation on all the elements of some partition of the whole population.  ...

W. Bunge
2010 Geographical Analysis  
Time will tell. Probabilists miss certain common interests, notably the search for the uniform plain. The liberating “distorted” maps are never appealed to in the probability approach.  ...  That two such seem- ingly antagonistic view points should provide the elements of the key recombination is very much in keeping with the history of such prog- ress.  ...

Youcef Azzoug, Abdelmadjid Boukra, Vasco N. G. J. Soares
2020 Future Internet  
The probabilistic Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) routing has been adjusted for vehicular network (VANET) routing through numerous works exploiting the historic routing profile of nodes to forward bundles  ...  In this paper, we propose a new hybrid swarm-inspired probabilistic Vehicular DTN (VDTN) router to optimize the next-SCF vehicle selection using the combination of two bio-metaheuristic techniques called  ...  Soares for ensuring the availability of the GeoSpray router's ONE source code for the proposed solution's coding and the simulation comparisons.  ...

Source geography estimation for web pages

Davide Bardone, Elias S. G. Carotti, Juan Carlos De Martin
2009 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Signal Processing and Information Technology (ISSPIT)  
The training set, consisting of a number of features extracted from web pages and the corresponding source-geography label (i.e. the country of origin of the web page) is automatically built by exploiting  ...  In this paper we propose a technique, grounded into the machine learning theory, to estimate source geography of web pages by means of a classifier learned on a specially constructed training set.  ...  The Content-Language meta element and the HTTP header are specifically designed to express the language of the intended audience and they typically consists of set of values (i.e.  ...

Comparison of probabilistic and deterministic record linkage in the development of a statewide trauma registry

D E Clark, D R Hahn
1995 Proceedings. Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care  
The outcomes using our data were similar, but we expect the probabilistic program to be more adaptable for general use, especially if large amounts of data must be linked.  ...  Using the same data preprocessing and linkage strategy, we programmed the probabilistic software to perform the matching step and compared the results with those obtained from the previously tested program  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported by a grant from the Maine Medical Center Research Trust Fund.  ...
