Paper
Nowadays, the capture of location referenced data and the development of web mapping by the general public, who do not have formal training or remit, has be-come commonplace. However, little empirically based guidance exists in the litera-ture to assist amateur and professional data producers desi...

Map Generalization is the process by which coarse scale maps are to be derived from fine scale maps, balancing the amount of real-world in- formation with visual confusion. This requires the use of operations such as simplification, selection, displacement and amalgamation of features that are per...

When a processing model, its workflow, are published and recognised as useful for a scientific purpose or a decision making process, it enters its second life: the life of being reused. A series of questions come to the mind of the user/modeller discovering this processing workflow: “Is it fit ...
Paper
When assessing the quality of a workflow and, in particular, its uncertainty propagation, the management of the quality description of the components instantiated within the workflow is essential. This is the case whether one is using clients for quality visualisation or computational services f...

Overlaying maps using a desktop GIS is often the first step of a multivariate spatial analysis. The potential of this operation has increased considerably as data sources and Web services to manipulate them are becoming widely available. via the internet. Standards from the OGC enable such geospat...

Subject: Open Standards; Health; OGC;
This paper explores potential uses of OGC web services in the context of health mapping and epidemiological studies. The situations or scenarios cover (i) different user perspectives, e.g. public and community, research, health professionals and (ii) different interaction levels, e.g. simple data ...
