  1. 1. A Spatial Analysis of Homicide Crime’s Distribution and Association with Deprivation in Stockholm Between 2010-2017

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Dennis Lindell Schettini; [2019]
    Nyckelord :GIS; homicide; deprivation; hot spot; generalized regression; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : A Spatial Analysis of Homicide Crime’s Distribution and Association with Deprivation in Stockholm Between 2010-2017 Homicide crimes are rare events depending on numerous factors and tend to be distributed differently based on geographic location. The use of spatial analysis is substantively important for detecting different predictors in varying geographic areas and for the diffusion process of homicide crimes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Assessing evolution of ice caps in Suðurland, Iceland, in years 1986 - 2014, using multispectral satellite imagery

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Alicja Miodonska; [2019]
    Nyckelord :remote sensing; multispectral satellite imagery; Landsat; Iceland; glaciers; ice caps; Geography; GIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The study focuses on the application of multispectral satellite imageries in glaciological studies. It aims to assess how the Icelandic glaciers have evolved over the last decades (from the 1980s to 2014). The study area covers Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull ice caps located in Suðurland, Iceland. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Impacts of future sea level rise and high water on roads, railways and environmental objects: a GIS analysis of the potential effects of increasing sea levels and highest projected high water in Scania, Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Emilie Jideblad Arnesten; [2019]
    Nyckelord :geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; sea level; sea level rise; climate change; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : This study uses GIS analyses to investigate the risk that increasing sea levels and highest projected highwater pose by increasing the risk of inundation on state-owned roads and railways as well as environmental objects in their side areas. This is done through an assessment of sea level rise projections and a risk analysis, which points out where vulnerable features are located and provides timeframes and durations for the risk.

  4. 4. A GIS-Based Multicriteria Decision Analysis Approach on Wind Power Development: the Case Study of Nova Scotia, Canada

    Magister-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Athanasios Senteles; [2018]
    Nyckelord :GIS; MCDA; AHP; wind energy; suitability; Nova Scotia;

    Sammanfattning : The growing need for reducing the negative impacts of climate change and ensuring a constant and environmentally friendly energy supply, led the way to the exploitation of renewable energy sources. Canada has already acknowledged this trend by incorporating more power from renewables on its energy mix. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Investigation of E-health solutions for chronic diseases and the cost benefits in Swedish Regions/County councils

    Magister-uppsats, Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för industriell ekonomi; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för industriell ekonomi

    Författare :Lars Nilsson; Jonas Norling; [2018]
    Nyckelord :E-health; Health economy; E-hälsa; Hälsoekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : Swedish healthcare is facing major challenges both today but more critically looking at predictions for the next 20 years. Healthcare costs will increase dramatically and competent personnel to support all the needs will be lacking. LÄS MER
