Communicating Process Architectures 2007: WoTUG-30

This ebook bargains with computing device technology and types of Concurrency. It fairly emphasises on hardware/software co-design, and the certainty of concurrency that effects from those platforms. various papers in this subject were incorporated, from the formal modeling of buses in co-design platforms via to software program simulation and improvement environments.

Spatial Databases: With Application to GIS (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Data Management Systems)

This textbook is a wonderful source for individuals particularly drawn to the theoretical nuts and bolts of spatial databases. The publication covers loads of flooring in exactly over four hundred pages. it'd be a great textual content for a complicated GIS programming direction for both geography scholars or computing device technological know-how scholars.

Two prominent theories aim to describe how objects are recognized visually: Image-based object recognition and structure-based object recognition. The first proposes that humans recognize an object by matching the visual image with a snapshot stored in our memory. The second follows the idea that objects are analysed in terms of primitive 3D forms (geon theory) und structural interrelationships (Ware, 2004). While significant progress has been made in the understanding of individual processing steps within the human visual system, it is currently not possible to derive accurate predictions regarding the effectiveness of visualization techniques from these, as many processes remain active areas of research and complex interdependencies are involved in the whole process that are still little understood.

Lee et al. (2001) developed a prototype for visual navigation using a multimedia map. It used photographic images to represent landmarks and matched them directly on a perspective view of the map. Furthermore, full panoramic views from road nodes or sequential photographs along a path were used to provide visual information. The evaluation of the prototype has shown that landmark photographs must be taken from the line of sight in which the object is approached. Therefore, several images are required for each landmark.

The integration of landmarks could therefore make navigation instructions more usable. In this chapter we present a design concept for the visualization of building landmarks in mobile maps. We consider four categories of building landmarks: well-known shops (trade chains), shops referenced by their type, buildings with a specific name or function and buildings described by characteristic visual aspects. We then examine how landmarks from each of these categories can be effectively visualized by comparing possible visualizations at different abstraction levels, ranging from photo realistic image presentations, over drawings, sketches and icons to abstract symbols and words.
