Spatial And Topological Analysis Of Urban Land Cover Structure In New Orleans Using Multispectral Aerial Image And Lidar Data, Shuxian Liu 2020 Louisiana State University

Spatial And Topological Analysis Of Urban Land Cover Structure In New Orleans Using Multispectral Aerial Image And Lidar Data, Shuxian Liu

LSU Master's Theses

Urban land use and land cover (LULC) mapping has been one of the major applications in remote sensing of the urban environment. Land cover refers to the biophysical materials at the surface of the earth (i.e. grass, trees, soils, concrete, water), while land use indicates the socio-economic function of the land (i.e., residential, industrial, commercial land uses). This study addresses the technical issue of how to computationally infer urban land use types based on the urban land cover structures from remote sensing data. In this research, a multispectral aerial image and high-resolution LiDAR topographic data have been integrated ...


Geographic Information Systems (Gis) In Humanitarian Assistance: A Meta-Analysis, David A. Ortiz 2020 Florida International University

Geographic Information Systems (Gis) In Humanitarian Assistance: A Meta-Analysis, David A. Ortiz

Pathways: A Journal of Humanistic and Social Inquiry

Every year natural and man-made disasters cause mass population displacement, loss of lives, and human suffering. On a given disaster several international or non-profit organizations will respond depending on the region in need as well as media and donor attention Olsen, Gorm Rye, et al (2003). Because of the extreme unique difficulties found in each disaster zone such as infrastructural damages, uncertain demand and supply, geographical challenges and time pressures, it is imperative that humanitarian organizations have readily available and applicable response methodologies as well as information technologies to increase their relief impact. In regards to the latter Geographic Information ...

Agent based modeling (ABM) is a standard tool that is useful across many disciplines. Despite widespread and mounting interest in ABM, even broader adoption has been hindered by a set of methodological challenges that run from issues around basic tools to the need for a more complete conceptual foundation for the approach. After several decades of progress, ABMs remain difficult to develop and use for many students, scholars, and policy makers. This difficulty holds especially true for models designed to represent spatial patterns and processes across a broad range of human, natural, and human-environment systems. In this paper, we describe ...


Remote Sensing Approaches To Predict Forest Characteristics In Northwest Montana, Ryan P. Rock 2020 University of Montana

Remote Sensing Approaches To Predict Forest Characteristics In Northwest Montana, Ryan P. Rock

Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers

Remote sensing can be utilized by land management organizations to save money and time. Mapping vegetation using either aerial photographs or satellite imagery and the applications for forest management are of particular interest to the Montana Department of Natural Resources. In 2018, the organization began a pilot program to test the incorporation of raster analysis of remotely sensed data into their inventory program and had limited success. This analysis identified two areas of improvement: the selection method of inventory plots and the imagery used for classification and metrics. This study found that selecting inventory plots using a generalized random tessellation ...


Utilization Of Machine Learning Algorithms To Support Retail Chain Store Location Decisions, Petr Grin 2020 University of Northern Iowa

Utilization Of Machine Learning Algorithms To Support Retail Chain Store Location Decisions, Petr Grin

Dissertations and Theses @ UNI

Businesses use GIS software to build spatial business models to have possibility to analyze customers, competitors or markets not only in terms of finance, but also in terms of their behavior in space. Specifically, geomarketing methods are used to maximize profit when searching for places to open new factories, shops, restaurants, or expand chain of cafes. The main geomarketing approach is to identify the optimal location based on socio-economic data, as well as on the criteria that are necessary for this type of business (suitability model).

Traditionally the Maxent model, a type of an ecological niche model (ENM), is used ...


Essential Modeling Techniques For Geospatial Analysis Using Arcgis: An Intermediate-Level Gis Workbook, Nicolas R. Malloy 2020 Humboldt State University

Essential Modeling Techniques For Geospatial Analysis Using Arcgis: An Intermediate-Level Gis Workbook, Nicolas R. Malloy

Textbooks Series (imprint)

This book contains four chapters and six intermediate-level tutorials to introduce students to geospatial modeling techniques. The tutorials represent approximately two-weeks of work for a three-credit 16-week semester course. Though some tutorials presented here cover similar concepts, each represents a complete and independent exercise. The modeling techniques shown here only scratch the surface of what is possible for each. The intent is to introduce readers to a varied array of geospatial modeling techniques, develop the skills needed to be successful in the workplace, and prepare students for more advanced work. Peer review pending.


Pass The Faa Drone Pilot Test—Remote Pilot Exam Preparation 2020, Nicolas R. Malloy 2020 Humboldt State University

Pass The Faa Drone Pilot Test—Remote Pilot Exam Preparation 2020, Nicolas R. Malloy

Textbooks Series (imprint)

Part 107 is the subdivision of Subchapter F of Chapter 1 of Title 14 that pertains to small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS). To legally fly a small unmanned aircraft for non-hobby, non-recreational use, remote pilots must abide by these regulations. This book is intended to explain the Part 107 regulations in a short and easy to read format. Additionally, this book also covers other areas of knowledge required by the FAA, including airspace and requirements, weather, loading and performance, and operations. Readers also have access to a series of sample test questions. Because the FAA does not provide specific test-questions ...
