Collecting and analyzing soccer-related graffiti with the spatial video technology and GIS: a case study in Krakow, Poland

Introduction This proposed research builds upon two (unpublished) soccer-related graffiti maps compiled by Dr. Piotr Trzepacz in 2006 and 2016. He is currently a researcher at the Institute of Geography and Spatial Management (IGSM), Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland and an important facilitator of this project. The original collections of the soccer-related graffiti was conducted on a bicycle, pictures taken by a digital camera, and graffiti locations were manually recorded for subsequent visualization on maps. In contrast, this research applied the

A model of the analysis of the dynamics and structure of socio-economic development (an example of the set of the largest Polish cities in the years 1998–2015)

the set of the cities (the entire data table). For particular rows, the dynamics of development was determined (a study of changes), for columns – the variance of features, whereas the entire table supplied the principal components and was a basis for a multivariate classification (a study of structures). The arrangement of the computed coefficients of variation (a standardized measure of variance) allowed determining the general trend of changes and comparing the acquired results to the two contrasting, as already mentioned, hypotheses of contemporary

transactions. Second, municipal banks (general) have no owner other than the public, and thus cannot be bought or sold. Third, their objective is to serve all community members, including people living off social welfare. Fourth, their management and supervisory boards include political representation of the municipality council, as well as some members of the local community.

top priority. A new law on housing cooperatives was adopted in 1995. In the same year austerity measures were introduced in order to continue the ongoing renovations, which was followed by measuring the size of apartments and compiling a list of heaters.

In that sense, the members of the Cooperative became more involved in its work and a higher

Selected aspects of water and sewage management in Poland in the context of sustainable urban development

purification technologies ( Tortajada, Nam Ong, 2016 ; Salgot, Folch, 2018). The environmental aspects of water and sewage management mainly relate to the quality and parameters of potable water ( Ekiye, Zejiao, 2010 ; Wang et al., 2009 ; Coombes et al., 2016 ), and its impact on the natural environment ( Haase, 2015 ; Herslund et al., 2018 ). The socio-economic aspects of water and sewage management focus on efficiency ( González-Gómez, García-Rubio, 2008 ; Zarghami, 2010 ). They also relate to the development of practical tools for measuring and improving water
