GIS in Response Time Analysis

Fire Station, Zutphen, Netherlands
Response time is key to fire fighting. Urbanisation and changes in land use demand continual assessment of the spatial distribution of fire stations and fire risk within the framework of costs/benefits. Since these problems have a spatial component, GIS systems are being used to solve them. The author demonstrates through a case-study in the Dutch city of Zutphen the capabilities of GIS in optimising location of fire-stations.<P> Is the area effectively covered by fire stations and, if not, how should fire stations be distributed? How should optimal distribution of stations be determined? What traffic problems may be faced at various... (read more)

Using GIS for Environmental Analysis

The Instituto Ambiente em Foco (IAF), a socio-environmental nonprofit organization (NGO) founded in 2007, is organizing the Third Workshop on Using GIS for Environmental Analysis, which will be held 5th to 8th October in Piracicaba (SP), Brazil.   With the participation of about 300 people, the workshop will feature lectures and workshops, and will occur in the Engineering School of Piracicaba/FUMEP. One of the workshops (Mapping Techniques in ArcGIS) will be given for the ESRI, the official developer of this software. The instructor will be the environmental engineer Bernard Barbarisi Freire, an analyst at the company and Master of Remote... (read more)

SimActive Software for Watershed Analysis

SimActive ash sold Correlator3D to the Department of Agriculture. SimActive's software will be primarily used for watershed analysis from imagery. The ability to quickly and easily generate digital surface models (DSM) will allow the Department of Agriculture to significantly reduce costs of watershed analysis compared to traditional survey methods or LiDAR data.   Designed for speed and ease of use, Correlator3D consists of fully automated software tools for the production of digital surface models (DSM) and digital terrain models (DTM), the creation of orthophotos and mosaics, and the detection of 3D changes. Correlator3D is significantly simpler and faster than currently... (read more)

Using the Spatial Perspective

GIS Analysis of Execution and Lynching in Alabama
Between 1871 and 1930 executions and lynching were carried out in Alabama as forms of both official and unofficial social control. Such events often took place in counties not under direct state supervision. What was the spatial and temporal appearance of such clusters of social control? Prior studies have been based on demographic, economic and electoral data, with minor explanatory success. The authors demonstrate how GIS provides the spatial perspective missing in other forms of analysis. Alabama is a ‘Deep South’ state and its Black Belt, shown as a dashed white line in Figure 1, is covered with dark rich... (read more)

Spatial Statistics Conference

The 1st Conference on Spatial Statistics 2011: Mapping Global Change is to be held from 23rd to 25th March 2011 at the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. Spatial statistics is a rapidly developing field involving the quantitative analysis of spatial data and the statistical modelling of spatial variability and uncertainty. Applications of spatial statistics are for a broad range of environmental disciplines such as agriculture, geology, soil science, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, forestry, meteorology and climatology, but also for socio-economic disciplines such as human geography, spatial econometrics, epidemiology and spatial planning. Keynote speakers include Martin Schlather (Universität Göttingen), Noel Cressie... (read more)
