Abstract Problem statement: GIS has several techniques and functions that can be used for health services planning. Each one of these functions can be applied for different health related issues. However, based on previous studies, there is an absence of the method for calculating the hospital service area, taking into account the spatial and social dimensions. Approach: The first part of this study reviews the relevant GIS methods that are used to calculate the hospital service area. The second part of the study focuses in developing a technique that can calculate the service area based on spatial and social dimensions. …

Abstract

Gait is the walking style or pattern of the human motions. This research aims to improve the accuracy of human gait recognition using the information provided by Microsoft Kinect. It benefits from a human joint positioning system by Kinect in three dimensions and proposes a new method in recognising the human gait. In this method, the angles between the body’s joints during the walking process have been used in ………

Abstract

3D modelling is a tedious and time-consuming process in games and entertainment industries. Due to the availability of high performance graphics hardware today, the demand for higher detailed and realistic graphics complicates tremendously the creation of large 3D model such as a city. Several modelling techniques have been introduced to ease the productivity of 3D modelling. However, they only fit for certain models. This paper proposes to auto-synthesize logical and realistic 3D model based on simple input primitive models

Abstract

Face recognition has long been a goal of computer vision, but only in recent years reliable automated face recognition has become a realistic target of biometrics research. In this paper the contribution of classifier analysis to the Face Biometrics Verification performance is examined. It refers to the paradigm that in classification tasks, the use of multiple observations and their judicious fusion at the data, hence the decision fusions at different levels improve the correct decision performance. The fusion tasks reported in this work were carried through fusion of two well-known face recognizers………

Abstract

The objective of this research work is aim at providing reliable information to land-use planners, it offers almost limitless opportunities for intelligent land-use allocation using Geographic Information System approach. Land-use planning is a decision making process, it is a geometrical process. Therefore, planners need appropriate and reliable geographical information to enable them make sound decisions relating to sharing of various competing land-uses. Thus, the end product of the GIS will be part of an Educational Decision Support System that provides the user with a map of Mubi North with focus on the schools locations and future sites for establishment of

APPLICATION OF GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (G.I.S.) IN EVALUATING SUITABLE AREAS FOR WHEAT CULTIVATION IN ADAMAWA STATE NIGERIA

Author

Source International Journal of Scientific Knowledge Volume 6 Issue 2 (2015) Pg. 06- 14
Abstract

Land Suitability Analysis (LSA) is a GIS-based process applied to determine the suitability of a specific area for considered use, i. e. it reveals the suitability of an area regarding its intrinsic characteristics (suitable or unsuitable) ( Sudabe etal 2010). In Nigeria as a whole and Adamawa in specific, wheat is one of the important cereal crops but the production is very low. In particular the wheat production does not meet the demands. The aim of this study is application of geographic information system in evaluating suitable areas for wheat cultivation in Adamawa state Nigeria. FAO 1976 suitability guidelines Boolean method, and GIS technique were used in order to get suitable areas for wheat production in the study area and the result showed that 12% of the total land mass of Adamawa State is highly suitable for wheat cultivation, 19% moderately suitable, 52% marginally suitable, 8% currently not suitable and 4 % permanently not suitable.

Abstract The service failures occur because the service can not be delivered well as the customer’s expectation, and it will lead customer’s complaints. That is, the customer’s complains will be happened along with the service failure. How to effectively rectify a service delivery failure via a service recovery will be an important consideration during the competitive and dynamic environment. The service recovery can be divided into mechanistic (e.g. the guidelines) and organic (e.g. favorable internal environment) service recovery. Besides, the intersection structure between the mechanistic and organic recovery will significantly exist and it will have effect on repurchase intention. And, customers’ repurchase intention will be also affected via WOM effect, especial for positive WOM (PWOM) and Negative WOM (NWOM). …. ….

Abstract

ABSTRACT
Service activities are multifaceted and have distinctive behavior of being simultaneous with their delivery and consumption. This makes them intricate and of problematic nature. It is also common to hear customers’ complaints in service areas. In healthcare centers, the complaints are high and need immediate solution as the activities in the healthcare consist a work of life perpetuation that should be delivered as fast as possible. Thus, improving the service quality of healthcare centers is a determinant issue. In addition, customer needs are different in nature and difficult to understand. Prioritizing service quality improvement in healthcare is usually uncertain and vague. From the existing methods, there is no single method which fully handles the uncertainties. This paper proposes a fuzzy logic integrated with analytical hierarchy process (AHP) (fuzzy extended AHP) in order to consider the uncertainties to prioritize service
