Earthquake analysis by 3-D affine deformations
James L Farrell
Changes in coordinates at stations affected by earthquakes have been monitored successfully, for years, with precision using satellite navigation. Results of interest have then been produced in the past through processing the outcome by conventional means. Those methods can now be augmented by applying entirely different criteria: deformation states associated with affine transformations...

Cadastral reform project in South Korea
Kang Sang-Gu, Kim Kyung-Il and Kim Tae-Hoon
The main purpose of this research is to propose the establishment of cadastral reference network based on the WGRS, and to make a fundamental plan which is unified into one national reference point...


Outdoor Mobile Field Robot Navigation
Chung-Liang Chang, Bo-Han Wu and Yong-Cheng Huang
This paper proposes a low-cost field robot capable of short-range field navigation, obstacle avoidance, color identification and spraying. Multiple micro-electro-mechanical sensors (MEMs) and multiple micro-controllers using a multi-layer fuzzy logic decision scheme were integrated to guarantee the autonomy of the mobile robot. Readers may recall that first part of the paper was published in the previous issue of Coordinates. Concluding part is presented here...

The use of GIS to forecast tourism demand
Dr Adnan AL-Jaber
This study shows that the full potential of the Huff model has not been recognized yet. Running the proposed model’sprogress scheme is fast and practical and saves a lot of effort and money,only in case of compliance with the terms and objectives of the model in addition to the required level of details...
