International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research (IJAGR) Volume 5, Issue 3

Book Description

The International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research (IJAGR) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal specializing in studies from applied geography that interface with geographic information science and technology. Including both regular and special themed issues, this journal presents policy analysts, geospatial practitioners, and academicians with high-quality articles exemplifying various application domains within applied geospatial research. IJAGR is interested in research highlighting various GIS&T application domains that span the social and physical sciences. The limiting factor is less topical, but more whether such studies incorporate geospatial technologies (geospatial statistics, global positioning systems, geographic information systems, remote sensing, etc.) to answer practical, utilitarian, and applied geographic questions.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • Monitoring Urban Sprawl and Sustainable Urban Development Using the Moran Index: A Case Study of Stellenbosch, South Africa
  • The Impact of Data Time Span on Forecast Accuracy through Calibrating the SLEUTH Urban Growth Model
  • Compute-Efficient Geo-Localization of Targets from UAV Videos: Real-Time Processing in Unknown Territory
  • Impact of Training Set Size on Object-Based Land Cover Classification: A Comparison of Three Classifiers
  • Geospatial Analysis of Neighborhood Characteristics and Access to Fresh Produce: The Role of Farmers' Markets and Roadside Farm Stands
  • Land Classification Research: A Retrospective and Agenda
