The geography of international terrorism : an introduction to spaces and places of violent non-state groups by Richard M Medina( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While geography is not the only factor to shape human behavior, its influence on terrorists' motivations, behaviors, options, and activities is a primary consideration in understanding terrorism. Taking a different approach than many other books on terrorism, The Geography of International Terrorism: An Introduction to Spaces and Places of Violent Non-State Groups presents an accessible, cross-disciplinary approach to managing terrorism on a global scale. The authors articulate the role of physical and human geography in terrorist ideology, operations, haven formation, and control. Providing the wider perspective required for preempting and countering terrorism, the book focuses on the geographic perspective in a more explicit manner than previous treatments of the topic. The authors examine networks as global systems and discuss new geospatial technologies in counterterrorism, supplying a blend of concepts and techniques that support policy development within the governing counter terrorist community. There are hundreds of books on terrorism, but few if any focus on the influence of geography, geospatial analysis, and geospatial intelligence approaches. A combination of academic theory and practical applications, this book provides the vertical linkage between topics at the high resolution level, such as sense of place and cultural identity of a clan or tribe with regional and global geographic-scale issues critical to understanding 21st century international terrorist groups."--Publisher's website

Open space and land development : a basic guide to management and preservation of open space, parks, and recreation areas in urban communities by Larry L Harris( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Control of urban development and preservations of open space have become increasingly controversial issues in recent years. This booklet was prepared to help citizens and local officials resolve these types of issues. It is intended to provide a framework for positive discussions between citizens and local officials, and includes an introduction to some of the philosophical and technical issues which generally underlie the creation of a systematic policy for managing local open space. The emphasis of the document is on citizen initiation of local government actions. It contains seven chapters concerning: (1) open space development in the United States; (2) a review of open space situations across the United States; (3) identification of needs; (4) planning, goals and needs; (5) importance of selectivity; (6) open space site analyses; and (7) implementation of open space acquisitions, funding and management. Sources for more information on these topics are also included. (Tw)

The Dynamic-Time-Warping-based k-means++ clustering and its application in phenoregion delineation( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: The phenoregion delineation facilitates more effective monitoring and more accurate forecasting of land-surface phenology (LSP), and thereby can greatly improve natural resources management. This article delineated a series of phenoregion maps by applying the Dynamic-Time-Warping (DTW)-based k -means++ clustering on normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) time series. The DTW distance, a well-known shape-based similarity measure for time series data, was used as the distance measure instead of the traditional Euclidean distance in k -means++ clustering. These phenoregion maps were compared with the ones clustered based on the similarity of phenological forcing variables. The results demonstrated that the DTW-based k -means++ clustering can capture much more homogeneous phenological cycles within each phenoregion; the two types of phenoregion maps have a medium degree of spatial concordance, and their representativeness of vegetation types is comparable. The phenocycle-based phenoregion map with 15 phenoregions was selected as the optimal one, based on the criteria of cluster cohesion and separation
