Development of advanced earthquake prediction method using artificial intelligence
Shunji Murai And Shoichi Teshima
The authors spent two years research on the application of the (Mahalanobis-Taguchi Method) MT method for earthquake prediction which shows interesting result. The MT method will be feasible to achieve precise prediction of larger earthquakes if big CORS daily data of more than ten years are provided...


Geomatics and GNSS education in India
The paucity of geodesy experts in the country has been the key reason for the sorry state of education and research in the field of geodesy the ‘mother of all geospatial science’ - Maj Gen (Dr) B.Nagarajan

Major areas that can have industry-academia collaborations would be algorithm development for accurate, robust and reliable positioning, integration of IRNSS with other sensors as well as in smart phones - Assistant Prof. Susmita Bhattacharyya

Pushing beyond the limits of technology in 2018
Dr Burkhard Boeckem
Perhaps sooner than we imagine, we will be talking about stitchless laser scans, flying laser scanners and voice-controlled total stations...

Road design parameter analysis based on the GNSS data
Akhilesh Kumar Karna And Dinesh Manandhar
Current analysis shows the capability of GNSS based location tracking in the analysis of road parameters. Further analysis is needed to find the proper value of the coefficients for different types of road...
Simple and effective RAIM technique for multiple outliers
Kong Longtao, Wang Wenli And Zhang Shuhui
In this paper, the conventional w-test is improved and the forward backward method is used for multiple outliers. Two observations are flagged as outliers in each iteration by the extended w-test method...

Sentinel-1 SAR data based flood mapping and monitoring of River Kosi, Bihar, India
Shashi Shekhar
The study makes an attempt to assess the inundated/flooded areas by comparing two time-series Sentinel-1 SAR dataset of 24th June 2017 i.e. pre-flood areas which depicts the permanent waterbodies (referred as archive image) and the image of 23rd August 2017 which depicts the actual flooded area (referred as crisis image) forward...
