TL;DR: Current data quality indicators for geographic information as part of the ISO 19157 (2013) standard and how these have been used to evaluate the data quality of VGI in the past are reviewed.
Abstract: Uncertainty over the data quality of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) is the largest barrier to the use of this data source by National Mapping Agencies (NMAs) and other government bodies. A considerable body of literature exists that has examined the quality of VGI as well as proposed methods for quality assessment. The purpose of this chapter is to review current data quality indicators for geographic information as part of the ISO 19157 (2013) standard and how these have been used to evaluate the data quality of VGI in the past. These indicators include positional, thematic and temporal accuracy, completeness, logical consistency and usability. Additional indicators that have been proposed for VGI are then presented and discussed. In the final section of the chapter, the idea of integrated indicators and workflows of quality assurance that combine many assessment methods into a filtering system is highlighted as one way forward to improve confidence in VGI.
TL;DR: An inventory of the metadata that are collected with geo-tagged photographs is provided and what elements would be essential, desirable, or unnecessary for three use cases related to land cover: Calibration, validation and verification.
Abstract: Geo-tagged photographs are used increasingly as a source of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI), which could potentially be used for land use and land cover applications. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the feasibility of using this source of spatial information for three use cases related to land cover: Calibration, validation and verification. We first provide an inventory of the metadata that are collected with geo-tagged photographs and then consider what elements would be essential, desirable, or unnecessary for the aforementioned use cases. Geo-tagged photographs were then extracted from Flickr, Panoramio and Geograph for an area of London, UK, and classified based on their usefulness for land cover mapping including an analysis of the accompanying metadata. Finally, we discuss protocols for geo-tagged photographs for use of VGI in relation to land cover applications.
TL;DR: This paper defines two similarity coefficients between users and learning objects and focuses on automatic creation of properly matching collaborating groups based on an algorithmic approach to assuring optimal value of user's learning.
Abstract: Adaptability to each separate user’s needs and preferences is a common concern in modern e-learning systems. Among various adaptation techniques described in recent research, collaboration support seeks to create groups that efficiently work together in order to advance user’s learning. This paper defines two similarity coefficients between users and learning objects and focuses on automatic creation of properly matching collaborating groups based on an algorithmic approach. By adopting methods derived from Group Technology, the method simultaneously selects appropriate learning objects to form a corresponding educational package for each group, thus assuring optimal value of user’s learning.
TL;DR: In this paper, the notion of *-Ricci soliton is introduced and real hypersurfaces in non-flat complex space forms admitting a *-ricci s soliton with potential vector field being the structure vector field.
Abstract: In this paper the notion of *-Ricci soliton is introduced and real hypersurfaces in non-flat complex space forms admitting a *-Ricci soliton with potential vector field being the structure vector field ξ are studied. At the end of the paper discussion on this new notion and ideas for further work are presented.
TL;DR: In this paper, the governing equilibrium equations for strain gradient elastic thin shallow shells are derived, considering nonlinear strains and linear constitutive strain-gradient elastic relations, and the equilibrium equations along with the boundary conditions are formulated through a variational procedure.
Abstract: The governing equilibrium equations for strain gradient elastic thin shallow shells are derived, considering nonlinear strains and linear constitutive strain gradient elastic relations. Adopting Kirchhoff’s theory of thin shallow structures, the equilibrium equations, along with the boundary conditions, are formulated through a variational procedure. It turns out that new terms are introduced, indicating the importance of the cross-section area in bending of thin plates. Those terms are missing from the existing strain gradient shallow thin shell theories. Those terms highly increase the stiffness of the structures. When the curvature of the shallow shell becomes zero, the governing equilibrium for the plates is derived.
