Nowcasting, synonymous for short term (0-6h) forecasting of precipitation with high detail in terms of location, timing and intensity, is a dynamic field of research in weather forecasting that is relevant in mitigating the impact of severe weather events. Along with the development of remote sensing instruments, the first methods that were...

Glacial isostatic adjustment is the viscoelastic response of the Earth to ice and ocean loads. In forward models of glacial isostatic adjustment, mantle viscosity is often assumed to be laterally homogeneous. However, a lateral transition in shear wave velocities suggests a sharp transition in viscosity between West and East Antarctica. Along...

A start-up creates videos which users can watch to experience their running or cycling activity all over again. Currently, the company depends on external data sources to generate a video. To be less dependent on these sources the company wants to create their own tracking solution. This solution has to fit in their existing smartphone...

Google Location History Timeline could be used in the future to track mobile devices of users with a Google account. The Department of Forensic Digital Technology in the Netherlands Forensic Institute might consider using it as available data for evidence in its investigations. A part of this research is to assess the accuracy of the locations...

In this report, a least-squares approach is described for retrieving the 3D structure of the electron concentration in the Earth’s upper ionosphere and plasmasphere, using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data-sets from Low-Earth-Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Due to the lack of horizontal radio wave geometries, the method uses assumptions...

Injuries are a sportsman’s worst nightmare: They withhold players from playing, they weaken teams and they force clubs to buy a bench-full of substitutes. On top of that, injuries can cause an awful lot of pain. Regulating match and training intensity can drastically decrease the risk of getting injured. Furthermore, it can optimally prepare...

Additional thesis - To improve weather monitoring, local near-real time weather forecasts and climate monitoring, a dense network of sensors should be set up. As shown already in the 1990s, GPS is a promising measurement device to form a dense network for meteorology observation. Because of economic reasons, a network of dual frequency GPS...

Additional thesis - Precipitation and especially rainfall are very important for the world’s population. It has its positive and negative side like providing water and contrary causing floods. Therefore it is of utmost importance to make clear and accurate weather predictions. The revolution of GPS in the last few decades gave a new opportunity...

Nowadays, there is an increasing number of large scale events and a growing number of people tend to participate to these events. In general, during large scale events the combination of the lack of sufficient information to support crowd management with the movements of the crowd can create not only problems on the undisturbed movements of...

Many different Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are currently in orbit or are being deployed. Research on positioning techniques using these satellites is ongoing. The Curtin GNSS Research Centre has developed a software tool for further testing of these techniques. This thesis represents the testing done on the Curtin PPP-RTK User...

This master thesis analysed the route choice behaviour at the mass event SAIL Amsterdam 2015. Both stated preference [SP] (online survey) and revealed preference [RP] (GPS-trackers) data was collected, to gain more insight into the behaviour of pedestrians. Attributes of influence on the route choices are researched on the one hand. On the other...

Freight is moved by trucks on the road more and more, which is a worrying thing, especially for the environment. A very good alternative to transportation by trucks is transportation by trains. The Dutch government aims to increase the transportation of goods by train from 13% of all transportation to 20% of all transportation, but in reality,...

With the help of technologies such as GPS tracks, GIS and open data is now possible to study people travel behaviour in a new way. Nowadays, large datasets can be easily handled thanks to database and better visualized using GIS. Moreover, the availability of GPS data, open data and VGI makes accessible a lot of new information, which was not...

Keeping maps up to date is quite costly because road geometry changes over time and mapping by professional surveyors is an expensive operation. With the presence of GPS sensors on mobile phones and in most cars today it becomes possible to measure the location of roads with many measurements from sensors of lower accuracy. In this thesis we...

The Black Desert in the east of Jordan has recently gained attention in the archaeological domain due to the discovery of pre-historical structures and a vast amount of rockart depictions. The Department of Near Eastern Archaeology of the University of Leiden has started investigating the cultural developments within this area from c. 1000 BC to...

Ice-skating is a rather special form of locomotion: the skater pushes sideward to propel himself forward; Insight in the details of this technique can help a speed skater improve his performance. The aim of this thesis is to develop a reliable and valid three-dimensional biomechanical model that simulates the motion of a speed skater, to gain...

In this thesis first a study is conducted on which position determination method should be used in a UAV and especially in the Parrot AR.Drone. Then an autonomous control for the AR.Drone is designed. The best position determination method in this case appeared to be a combination of a GPS sensor and a barometer. The autonomous control is...

In this paper I present a novel method to determine the time of occurrence of tidal slack with a GPS receiver mounted on an anchored buoy commonly used to delineate shipping lanes in estuaries and tidal channels. Slack tide occurs when the tide changes direction from ebb to flood flow, or from flood to ebb. The determination of this point in...

Water vapour in the atmosphere is a key variable in the prediction of heavy rain and thunderstorms. Water vapour in the atmosphere is still badly modeled although more and more ground based, airborne, as well as spaceborne measurements are retrieved. The main input for current water vapour maps are Integrated Water Vapour (IWV) measurements...
