Towards a Cooperative Traffic Network Editor [chapter]

José L. F. Pereira, Rosaldo J. F. Rossetti, Eugénio C. Oliveira
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we explore the potential benefits of concepts such as visual interactive modelling and simulation to devise and implement a cooperative network editor embedded in a collaborative environment  ...  The use of a common geographical data model of the application domain promotes the means for different experts to interact seamlessly in a collaborative environment.  ...  In the former case, any modification to the database through the cooperation layer will directly affect the analysis processes running on the other layer.  ...

The Effect of Geographical Proximity on Scientific Cooperation among Chinese Cities from 1990 to 2010

Haitao Ma, Chuanglin Fang, Bo Pang, Guangdong Li, Alejandro Raul Hernandez Montoya
2014 PLoS ONE  
Methodology: Selected statistics from the ISI database on cooperatively authored papers, the authors of which resided in 60 typical cites in China, and which were published in the years 1990, 1995, 2000  ...  Thus, how geographical proximity affects scientific cooperation, and whether geographically proximate scientific cooperation activities in fact exhibit geographic scale features should be investigated.  ...  This suggests that the cooperation network has been developing towards a regional network structure, while obvious growth in distant cooperation appeared gradually.  ...

Cooperative Management of Data and Services for Environmental Applications [chapter]

Wolf-Fritz Riekert
1995 Informatik aktuell  
The integration of such heterogeneous systems and the support of cooperation on a regional, national and international scale is a big challenge of today.  ...  Metadata (such as in data and service dictionaries) and codata (such as spatiotemporal references) must be provided in order support the proper usage of these data and services.  ...  In the past, the cooperative aspect of environmental information processing has been neglected in most cases.  ...
