ACCESSIBILITY OF HEALTH CARE INSTITUTIONS: A CASE STUDY BY USING GIS

Author

Fatih KARA & Dr. Istvan Oliver EGRESI

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 3 Issue 4 (2013) Pg. 16- 27
Abstract

Equitable provision of health care services is a major challenge for developing countries. The degree of accessibility of health care institutions is one of the most significant indicators for measuring the efficiency of a health care system. Accessibility is a complex indicator that reflects the number of health care institutions, their geographical distribution and the impact of different types of barriers (economic, social, cultural, etc.). Geographers have been mainly concerned with geographical accessibility for the calculation of which they have tried different methods ….

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 3 Issue 3 (2013) Pg. 01-10
Abstract

Remote sensing technologies provide us with the facilities of observing wide oceans and mainland, agricultural fields, urban developments, natural disasters like volcanic activities and flood, and forest fires. At the same time, precious data can be obtained on short and long term repeating events through remote sensing technologies, especially satellites, which paves the way for data on how earth has been changed by human activities in time. One of the most significant areas of the use of remote sensing is the detection and inventory of forest areas. The aim of this study is to manifest that remote sensing method . ….

THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAFFIC CALMING MEASURES IN REDUCING ROAD CARNAGE IN MASVINGO URBAN.

Author

Ndhlovu Pardon and Chigwenya Average

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 3 Issue 2 (2013) Pg. 01-12
Abstract

Traffic calming is a useful way of controlling speeds where it is unnecessarily excessive and inappropriate for the place and uses in the surroundings, (Taylor et al, 2000). There are high incidents of road carnage in Masvingo urban and its peripheral areas despite the constructed traffic calming measures.The rationality of traffic calming measures was based on the need to improve safety and enhancing quality of life in urban areas and its neighbourhoods. The motivation behind carrying out the research was to assess the effectiveness of implemented traffic calming in Masvingo Central Business District and the high density residential areas of Mucheke and Rujeko. Research methodology used was explanatory research based on formative and evaluation research to gather qualitative and quantitative data. . ….

ON THE LOGICAL ANALYSIS OF THE FOUNDATIONS OF VECTOR CALCULUS

Author

Temur Z. Kalanov

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 3 Issue 2 (2013) Pg. 25-30
Abstract

A critical analysis of the foundations of standard vector calculus is proposed. The methodological basis of the analysis is the unity of formal logic and of rational dialectics. It is proved that the vector calculus is incorrect theory because: (a) it is not based on a correct methodological basis – the unity of formal logic and of rational dialectics; (b) it does not contain the correct definitions of “movement”, “direction” and “vector”;… ….

Abstract

In pervasive advertising distribution systems, the relevance of advertisements sent to users is an aspect of paramount importance, because it benefits both the advertiser, who increases the likelihood of a purchase by the user, and the user itself, who uses the advertising channel with grater satisfaction. In order to send relevant advertisements, an advertiser must know the situation, the interests, the activities and the intentions of users: in one word, their context. However, the disposal of this personal information to advertisers has clear repercussions on users’ privacy. The purpose of this work is the design and implementation of a pervasive advertisement distributio n platform for mobile devices which maximizes the relevance of advertisements sent to users … ….
