We used mark-recapture methods to estimate the number of Parnssius smintheus (Papilionidae) butterflies moving among 20 alpine meadows separated by varying amounts of forest along the east slope of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. We combined generalized additive models and generalized...
Enhancing space modeling and mobile resources planning in construction operations through a simulation driven visualization frameworkDownload
Simulation modeling is a strong tool that has not been utilized to its expected potential in day to day construction industry activities. One of the reasons contributing to that is the inability of simulation models to depict changes in site space in an intuitive way. This research tries to...
Implementation and Evaluation of Spatiotemporal Prediction Algorithms and Prediction of Spatially Distributed Greenhouse Gas InventoriesDownload
Growing environmental concerns require monitoring and modelling of greenhouse gases. These modelling efforts require processing of massive datasets in a timely fashion. This, in turn, can lead to feasibility problems when estimating values of missing data points. This thesis examines and compares...
Recommender systems are a growing area of research that find practical applications in a variety of domains. Integrated library systems and location-based social networks can apply recommendation algorithms to assist their users in finding an item or location that suits their needs. With an...
Evaluating the process performance of mining and petroleum operations requires numerical geological models of many related rock properties or variables. Taken together, they provide a characterization of the geologic deposit that forms the basis for engineering design and decision making. Complex...
Technical report TR96-06. Video modeling has become a topic of increasing interest in the area of multimedia research. One of the key aspects in the video medium is spatial relationships. In this paper we propose a spatial representation, based on the temporal interval algebra, for specifying...
Modeling and Querying Multimedia Data
Technical report TR98-05. Amidst the dramatic developments of computer technology in the last decades, we have seen a growing interest in supporting multimedia data. Compared with traditional data, the most noticeable features of multimedia data are their spatiality (the spatial layout of...
Technical report TR96-12. Modeling moving objects has become a topic of increasing interest in the area of video databases. Two key aspects of such modeling are object spatial and temporal relationships. In this paper we introduce an innovative way to represent the trajectory of a single...
A reliable estimate of the amount of oil or gas in a reservoir is required for development decisions. Uncertainty in reserve estimates affects resource/reserve classification, investment decisions, and development decisions. There is a need to make the best decisions with an appropriate level...
Spatial analysis to locate new clinics for diabetic kidney patients in the underserved communities in AlbertaDownload
Background: Canadians often live far from health care facilities, which may compromise their care. However, no objective method exists for selecting new facilities from potential locations. We used a new method for selecting optimum clinic locations and characterized remote-dwellers clinically....
