  • Clustering and Fuzzy Reasoning as Data Mining Methods for the Development of Retrofit Strategies for Building Stocks

    This chapter discusses the application of hierarchical agglomerative clustering and fuzzy reasoning as data mining methods for the building stock management and strategic planning. It familiarizes the reader with data mining methods for the development of effective retrofit strategies for a building stock, including energy efficiency measures (EEMs) and automated network identification (ANI) for smart energy networks. Applied data mining methods identify groups of buildings for exactly defined purposes, that is, to find buildings that react similarly to retrofitting measures. This allows for the development of intelligent systemic strategies instead of isolated approaches to individual buildings. The chapter also identifies the benefits and methodological differences between sparse information approaches, that is, the type‐age classification, and novel approaches based on information available from building catalogs and databases, measurements, as well as data mining methods in smart city contexts.

  • Application Areas of Positioning

    This chapter begins by presenting the Location Stack, a framework created by Jeffrey Hightower, which offers an overview of an exemplary localization system with all its elements and interrelations, similar to the seven‐layer ISO/OSI model used in the field of communication systems. It introduces the first application area of positioning and thereby the formal definitions of a location‐based service (LBS), which is basically considered as the intersection of new information and communication technologies (NICTs), the Internet and geographic information systems (GISs). The chapter illustrates the "LBS ecosystem", which is an efficient parallel taken from biology, to show the many actors rotating around this business; in particular, these actors will be split into operational and non‐operational actors. It then presents taxonomies of LBSs, which are divided into the service model, application, market segment and content. The chapter focuses on the second of these classes and explains some application categories within LBSs.

  • Geographic Information Retrieval: Progress and Challenges in Spatial Search of Text

    Significant amounts of information available today contain references to places on earth. Traditionally such information has been held as structured data and was the concern of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). However, increasing amounts of data in the form of unstructured text are available for indexing and retrieval that also contain spatial references. This monograph describes the field of Geographic Information Retrieval (GIR) that seeks to develop spatially-aware search systems and support user¿¿¿s geographical information needs. Important concepts with respect to storing, querying and analysing geographical information in computers are introduced, before user needs and interaction in the context of GIR are explored. The task of associating documents with coordinates, prior to their indexing and ranking forms the core of any GIR system, and different approaches and their implications are discussed. Evaluating the resulting systems and their components, and different paradigms or doing so continue to be an important area of research in GIR and are illustrated through several examples. The monograph provides an overview of the research field, and in so doing identifies key remaining research challenges in GIR.

  • Algorithms and Data Structures for External Memory

    Data sets in large applications are often too massive to fit completely inside the computer's internal memory. The resulting input/output communication (or I/O) between fast internal memory and slower external memory (such as disks) can be a major performance bottleneck. Algorithms and Data Structures for External Memory surveys the state of the art in the design and analysis of external memory (or EM) algorithms and data structures, where the goal is to exploit locality in order to reduce the I/O costs. A variety of EM paradigms are considered for solving batched and online problems efficiently in external memory. Algorithms and Data Structures for External Memory describes several useful paradigms for the design and implementation of efficient EM algorithms and data structures. The problem domains considered include sorting, permuting, FFT, scientific computing, computational geometry, graphs, databases, geographic information systems, and text and string processing. Algorithms and Data Structures for External Memory is an invaluable reference for anybody interested in, or conducting research in the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms and data structures.

  • Spatial Data Management

    Spatial database management deals with the storage, indexing, and querying of data with spatial features, such as location and geometric extent. Many applications require the efficient management of spatial data, including Geographic Information Systems, Computer Aided Design, and Location Based Services. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with an overview of spatial data management technology, with an emphasis on indexing and search techniques. It first introduces spatial data models and queries and discusses the main issues of extending a database system to support spatial data. It presents indexing approaches for spatial data, with a focus on the R-tree. Query evaluation and optimization techniques for the most popular spatial query types (selections, nearest neighbor search, and spatial joins) are portrayed for data in Euclidean spaces and spatial networks. The book concludes by demonstrating the ample application of spatial data management technology on a wide range o related application domains: management of spatio-temporal data and high-dimensional feature vectors, multi-criteria ranking, data mining and OLAP, privacy-preserving data publishing, and spatial keyword search. Table of Contents: Introduction / Spatial Data / Indexing / Spatial Query Evaluation / Spatial Networks / Applications of Spatial Data Management Technology

  • Introduction

    The maps in this book are drawn with satellites, assembled with pixels radioed from outer space, and constructed from statistics; they record situations of intense conflict and express fundamental transformations in our ways of seeing and of experiencing space. These maps are built with Global Positioning Systems (GPS), remote sensing satellites, or Geographic Information Systems (GIS): digital spatial hardware and software designed for such military and governmental uses as reconnaissance, secrecy, monitoring, ballistics, the census, and national security. Rather than shying away from the politics and complexities of their intended uses, in Close Up at a Distance Laura Kurgan attempts to illuminate them. Poised at the intersection of art, architecture, activism, and geography, her analysis uncovers the implicit biases of the new views, the means of recording information they present, and the new spaces they have opened up. Her presentation of these maps reclaims, repurposes, and discovers new and even inadvertent uses for them, including documentary, memorial, preservation, interpretation, political, or simply aesthetic. GPS has been available to both civilians and the military since 1991; the World Wide Web democratized the distribution of data in 1992; Google Earth has captured global bird's-eye views since 2005. Technology has brought about a revolutionary shift in our ability to navigate, inhabit, and define the spatial realm. The traces of interactions, both physical and virtual, charted by the maps in Close Up at a Distance define this shift.
