  • Spatial or territorial organization is one of effective tools for sustainable land use. Spatial organization of land use and environmental protection by functional sub-areas is performed on the basis of comprehensive and integrated research on characteristics and differentiation laws of natural components and landscapes, socio-economic factors, the present status and trend of environmental changes as well as the structures and functions of sub-areas. Uong Bi is a national center for tourism, coal mining and thermal power production.

  • This book discusses an emerging approach to architecture in which building performance is a guiding design principle. This architecture places broadly defined performance above, or on a par with, form-making; it utilizes digital technologies of quantitative and qualitative performance-based simulation to offer a comprehensive new approach to the design of the built environment.

  • These disorders are caused by maturational white matter abnormalities and therefore white matter tractography (using DTI) can offer advantages over conventional MRI in the detectability of clinically relevant microstructural features. High field strength structural MR scanning (up to 7 tesla for clinical and research use in humans) is now available in some countries, and this greatly enhances the spatial resolution over that offered by standard clinical facilities (typically 1.5 or 3 tesla).

  • Recently, pyramid matching algorithms were proposed for different applications, such as object recognition, scene classification, and event recognition in movies and news videos [13], [25], [26], [48], [49]. These methods involved pyramidal binning in different domains (e.g., feature, spatial, or temporal domain), and improved performances were reported by fusing the information from multiple pyramid levels.

  • Event recognition methods can be roughly categorized into model-based methods and appearance-based techniques. Model-based approaches relied on various models, includ- ing HMM [35], coupled HMM [3], and Dynamic Bayesian Network [33], to model the temporal evolution. The relationships among different body parts and regions are also modeled in [3], [35], in which object tracking needs to be conducted at first before model learning.

  • We think this book is unique in that it uses a novel and logical approach to present discussions of this topic from three general perspectives: scientific, social, and economic, and the integration within these important areas. We think this book is somewhat different than other environmental management books since we offer a more balanced view of the topic – many of the books available today concentrate primarily on just one of these three perspectives.

  • Vector processors provide high-level operations that work on vectors, i.e., linear arrays of numbers [20]. A typical vector is able to contain between 64 and 512 64-bit elements. With a single instruction, operations can be performed in parallel on all elements. Specialized architectures with large numbers of simple processing elements are required. Compared to vector registers, SIMD registers can hold a small number of elements. For example, at most four 32-bit values can be processed using SIMD instructions in a Pentium 4.

  • Stakeholder and biodiversity at the local level is a three-year collaboration between the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC). Tropenbos International-Vietnam (TBI-V) has been a very helpful collaborator for coordinating the project activities. The project goal is to contribute to the enhancement of the livelihoods of local forest dependent communities and sustainable forest management.

  • Agroforestry is one of the sustainable approaches to land-use management where both agriculture and forestry combine into an integrated production system to get maximum benefits (Kidd and Pimentel, 1992; Nair, 1998). As per ICRAF (International Centre for Research in Agroforestry, now World Agroforestry Centre), ‘‘agroforestry is a deliberate integration of woody components with agricultural and pastoral operations on the same piece of land either in a spatial or temporal sequence in such a way that both ecological and economic interactions occur between them.’’...

  • The DSS will enable examination of existing conditions, forecasting of future conditions, and simulation of alternatives that will be ecologically sustaining and socially desired. The DSS will address watershed, water quality, water quantity, groundwater and ecosystem restoration needs at the small watershed, major watershed, tributary river, and main stem Minnesota River reach levels of spatial scale. The DSS will enable forecasting future conditions.

  • The USFS Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program seeks to assess the condition and trend of the forests of the U.S. FIA recently assumed responsibility for all former Forest Health Monitoring program (FHM) plot work on a national level, and is currently active in 32 states. Lichen community monitoring was included in FIA in order to address key assessment issues such as the impact of air pollution on forest resources, spatial and temporal trends in biodiversity, and the sustainability of timber harvesting.

  • Sustainable urban development requires an integrated approach and the Thematic Strategy advocates that national and regional authorities support municipalities in achieving more integrated management at the local level. This approach is supported by both of the Council and the European Parliament5. Integrated approaches include long-term strategic visions and link different policies at different administrative levels to ensure coherency.

  • This paper presents the particular use of “Jibiki” (Papillon’s web server development platform) for the LexALP1 project. LexALP’s goal is to harmonise the terminology on spatial planning and sustainable development used within the Alpine Convention2 , so that the member states are able to cooperate and communicate efficiently in the four official languages (French, German, Italian and Slovene).
