A Data-Driven Approach For Benchmarking Energy Efficiency Of Warehouse Buildings, Wee Leong Lee, Kar Way Tan, Zui Young Lim

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

This study proposes adata-driven approach for benchmarking energy efficiency of warehouse buildings.Our proposed approach provides an alternative to the limitation of existingbenchmarking approaches where a theoretical energy-efficient warehouse was usedas a reference. Our approach starts by defining the questions needed to capturethe characteristics of warehouses relating to energy consumption. Using an existingdata set of warehouse building containing various attributes, we first cluster theminto groups by their characteristics. The warehouses characteristics derivedfrom the cluster assignments along with their past annual energy consumptionare subsequently used to train a decision tree model. The decision tree providesa classification of what factors contribute to ...

Efficient Motif Discovery In Spatial Trajectories Using Discrete Fréchet Distance, Bo Tang, Man Lung Yiu, Kyriakos Mouratidis, Kai Wang

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

The discrete Fréchet distance (DFD) captures perceptual and geographicalsimilarity between discrete trajectories. It has been successfullyadopted in a multitude of applications, such as signatureand handwriting recognition, computer graphics, as well as geographicapplications. Spatial applications, e.g., sports analysis,traffic analysis, etc. require discovering the pair of most similarsubtrajectories, be them parts of the same or of different input trajectories.The identified pair of subtrajectories is called a motif.The adoption of DFD as the similarity measure in motif discovery,although semantically ideal, is hindered by the high computationalcomplexity of DFD calculation. In this paper, we propose asuite of novel lower ...

Integrated Assessment Of Novel Two-Season Production Systems In Mato Grosso, Brazil, Marcelo Moraes, Affonso Libera, Evgeny Latynskiy, Anna Hampf, José Maria Silveira, Thomas Berger

Marcelo Carauta

One of the most significant advantages of growing crops in Mato Grosso (in mid-western Brazil) is that farmers can grow two crops (in some specific cases even three) in the same season. From an economic point of view, on the one hand, this provides a strong comparative advantage. On the other hand, this increases the number of decision variables that a decision making agent has to take into account. The agricultural production planning is complex and dynamic and it needs to consider crop rotation/succession in accordance with annual variability of climatic conditions. We developed a region-specific bio-economic micro-simulation model ...


Promoting Information Resources To Students: Using Wordpress To Maintain Library Data Sets, Derek Stadler 2017 CUNY La Guardia Community College

Promoting Information Resources To Students: Using Wordpress To Maintain Library Data Sets, Derek Stadler

Publications and Research

Although it began as a blog tool, WordPress has grown into a complete content management system with thousands of interactive themes available. Since it uses the MySQL database management system, the open-source software suits the needs of library websites by aggregating a college library’s complete database inventory. Rather than update several HTML pages within a site when new vendors are added or a URL is changed, information from vendors can be maintained in a database table and then displayed to students, highlighting available resources and information. The presentation highlights the use of some simple WordPress plugins to manage many ...

Generating A Normalized Database Using Class Normalization, Daniel Sushil Sudhindaran 2017 University of North Florida

Generating A Normalized Database Using Class Normalization, Daniel Sushil Sudhindaran

UNF Theses and Dissertations

Relational databases are the most popular databases used by enterprise applications to store persistent data to this day. It gives a lot of flexibility and efficiency. A process called database normalization helps make sure that the database is free from redundancies and update anomalies. In a Database-First approach to software development, the database is designed first, and then an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) tool is used to generate the programming classes (data layer) to interact with the database. Finally, the business logic code is written to interact with the data layer to persist the business data to the database. However, in ...

Common Management Gaps In The Life Cycle Of Digitized Objects, Jocelyn Wehr 2016 University of Kansas

Common Management Gaps In The Life Cycle Of Digitized Objects, Jocelyn Wehr

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

Presented from the perspective of someone responsible for creating the digital objects that will eventually be included in a digital preservation program, this poster session will identify common issues that make the management and preservation of digital objects more challenging. Digital preservation needs to be talked about within the digitization workflow, because it takes a lot of work to produce the best digital objects possible. We are often focused on the immediate use of the digital objects and less focused on their long-term use. Even with best practices in mind, there is often an immediate need (patron orders, for example ...
