Globalization and rural transition in Germany and the UK [based on papers presented at the Third Anglo-German Meeting of Rural Geographers ; held at the University of Oldenburg June ] by Ingo Mose 1 edition published in in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This book contains th studies of contemporary rural development in Germany and the UK.
Based on papers presented at the Third Anglo-German Meeting of German Rural Geographers, the book focuses on two key "Transitions" occurring in the countryside. The first reflects the impact of global forces on agriculture, with family farming struggling to survive in the face of rising costs and the power wielded by large supermarket chains. The second examines responses to the multi-faceted changes within rural areas: depopulation and decline in rural communities, pressures to maintain the environmental quality of rural areas, the growth of tourism, the creation of new rural-based industries as well as local responses to the threats and opportunities associated with globalization.
This book highlights both similarities and distinct differences between Germany and the UK as they both experience a range of rural and agricultural transitions. Strong emphasis is placed upon the way in which different outcomes are occurring based on the intricate interplay between global and local forces.

Transition pathways towards sustainability in agriculture : case studies from Europe by Lee-Ann Sutherland 4 editions published between and in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Based on the research of an interdisciplinary team of sociologists, geographers and economists, this book focuses on understanding farming transitions in Europe. The book discusses the importance of understanding transition pathways towards sustainability using case studies from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Portugal and the United Kingdom.
Assessing the utility of the multi-level perspective in transition theory for addressing contemporary issues, the book identifies future research needs and possible approaches, making this an essential read for researchers intereste.

Thought-provoking illustrations include U. Geological Survey maps; electoral and transportation maps; and numerous examples of critical cartography, participatory GIS, and map art. Current methods for specifying data models lack well-defined descriptions of the expressions, which represent data types, attributes, attribute values, and operations.
It is impossible to define clear translation rules for data models, because the relation between source and target data model elements is not computable. Furthermore, translation has to account for imprecision caused by conceptual heterogeneities and measurement error.
In this thesis we use the DOLCE foundational ontology to provide a semantic reference frame for geospatial data. Available extensions to DOLCE are profiled and additional geospatial characteristics, such as topological relations, are included. Annotating or semantically referencing expressions, which are used to define geospatial data models, with this frame supports computability and allows for selecting appropriate translation rules on the attribute level.

Using a logic-based approach, semantically referenced data models allow for inferring relations between source and target attributes. This includes inference on applicable translation operations and the detection of match types exact, upper bound, and lower bound between attributes. The scripts are executed using an algebraic theory, which includes propagation of measurement errors. The approach allows for specifying data model semantics and imprecision.
A demonstrator is provided as proof of concept. The introduction of online access to remote sensing data, such as Google Earth, has made remote sensing more familiar to the public and has popularized the science in recent years.
Events to connect
Remote sensing makes it possible to collect data from dangerous or inaccessible areas, replacing costly and slow data collection on the ground and ensuring that areas or objects are not disturbed in the process. Applications include monitoring deforestation and the effects of climate change, as well as depth sounding of coastal and ocean depths. This symposium aimed to highlight the work of the association and communicate future trends and developments in the field, both to those attending the conference and to a wider public.

Subjects covered include; Earth observation, earthquake monitoring, new trends in GIS and remote sensing software packages, coasts and climate conflicts, forestry, land use and land cover, thermal remote sensing and urban remote sensing. This authoritative, reader-friendly introductory text presents core principles of good map design that apply regardless of production methods or technical approach.
The book's utility is enhanced by over illustrations, including 23 color plates; suggested readings at the end of each chapter; a glossary; and recommended Web resources. All of the figures are also available online as PowerPoint slides. Black, William R. During the past two decades, sustainability has become the dominant concern of transportation planners and policymakers. This timely text provides a framework for developing systems that move people and products efficiently while minimizing damage to the local and global environment. The book offers a uniquely comprehensive perspective on the problems surrounding current transportation systems: climate change, urban air pollution, diminishing petroleum reserves, safety issues, and congestion.
It explores the full range of possible solutions, including applications of pricing, planning, policy, education, and technology. Numerous figures, tables, and examples are featured, with a primary focus on North America. Nyerges, Timothy L.
Book Unravelling Desertification: Policies And Actor Networks In Southern Europe 2005
This unique text shows students and professionals how geographic information systems GIS can guide decision making about complex community and environmental problems. The authors' step-by-step introduction to GIS-based decision analysis methods and techniques covers important urban and regional issues land, transportation, and water resource management and decision processes planning, improvement programming, and implementation. Real-world case studies demonstrate how GIS-based decision support works in a variety of contexts, with a special focus on community and regional sustainability management.
Ideal for course use, the book reinforces key concepts with end-of-chapter review questions; illustrations include 18 color plates.
