Simulation of Changes of The Warsaw Urban Area 1969-2023 (Application of Cellular Automata)

Abstract

It is possible to make analyses within the field of GIS applying cellular automata. One of the purposes of socio-economic geography is indirect understanding of the phenomenon by analyzing spatial patterns and inferring spatio-temporal processes looking rather for local hotspots. The cellular automata are the tool both for spatio-temporal inferring based on local conditions and data visualization. The evidence is the case study of spatial simulation of Warsaw Urban Area (Poland).

The author verifies the hypothesis that the present layout and extent of the Warsaw agglomeration determines further directions of the city’s spatial development. To this end, he employs a method based on cellular automata theory.

ESR dating of fossil teeth: In which extent the thickness of adjacent tissues should be taken into account in the external beta dose rate evaluation?

facilitate data visualization, data were aligned to the right. Fig. 3 shows the mean path length of beta particles within the enamel layer (grey band). An asymmetric U-shape attenuation of the beta dose rate within the enamel layer may be observed, as the result of a higher U-238 concentration from the inner side (dentine). However, because ESR data are not spatially resolved (the whole volume of the enamel layer is powdered and measured by ESR), beta dose rate in the enamel have to be considered as a bulk value. Consequently, a pseudo-bulk estimate of the external

A thematic cartographic visualization of a small region, based on the example of the Mrozy Commune

Mrozy. The second part of this article involves the assessment of the collected data. The data was checked in terms of completeness (it turned out that some of the data was lacking), topicality, details (the Mrozy commune is a small area), and usefulness for map design (the data deemed useful for visualization, was data with a spatial reference). A database was developed for the purposes of spatial data visualization. The data in this database was coded, generalized, and described. Furthermore, the database can be updated and expanded as needed. The next stage was

Topographic surface modelling using raster grid datasets by GMT: example of the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench, Pacific Ocean

1 Introduction Current paper introduces the use of Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) for the cartographic workflow aimed at the geological data visualization. Among the wide range of GIS software used for mapping and geospatial data modelling, GMT stands apart from the traditional tools such as ArcGIS ( ESRI Team, 2010 ), QGIS ( QGIS, 2019 ) and MapINFO. The particularity of the GMT comparing to the standard GIS consists in its fundamentally different approach towards geodata processing. The GMT, originally developed by Wessel and Smith (1998) is not a classic

Spatial data processing for the purpose of video games

Abstract

Advanced terrain models are currently commonly used in many video/computers games. Professional GIS technologies, existing spatial datasets and cartographic methodology are more widely used in their development. This allows for achieving a realistic model of the world. On the other hand, the so-called game engines have very high capability of spatial data visualization. Preparing terrain models for the purpose of video games requires knowledge and experience of GIS specialists and cartographers, although it is also accessible for non-professionals. The authors point out commonness and variety of use of terrain models in video games and the existence of a series of ready, advanced tools and procedures of terrain model creating. Finally the authors describe the experiment of performing the process of data modeling for “Condor Soar Simulator”.

From cartography of the Universe to molecular cartography – the use of map projections

Abstract

Map projections are very important in the compilation of various types of maps and spatial databases. Geographical information systems provide their users with the significant opportunities in the choice of map projections, coordinate systems, their definitions and transitions between them. The role of map projection can be considered depending on an objective, for which a map has to be used, user of this map and a form of its publication. The Internet, mobile devices and GIS caused that the map projections are used for two main purposes: data visualization and performing of calculations and analyses. The role of map projections is still important, despite the changes occurring in cartography. The rules for the applications of map projections developed over the centuries are still valid. However, the new rules resulting from the new functions of map projections are also created. The aim of this article, that is the author’s overview of map projections, is to illustrate the broad spectrum of applications for the map projections.

Transformation of 3D geospatial data into CityGML – a case of Prague

, only a subpart (the rectangle 2.5 ⨯ 2 km covering the city centre including, for example, Prague Castle or Charles Bridge) was used. The intention was to describe the principles of data transformation, storage and visualization, which can be later applied on larger data sets. In particular, the following objects were available: buildings, bridges, digital terrain model. Figure 2 shows the downloaded input data visualized in Esri ArcScene desktop application. The used coordinate systems are S-JTSK/Krovak East North (EPSG:5514) and Baltic 1957 height
