This study investigates the many dynamics of the Manyame Catchment and comes up with recommendations on how to adapt or become more resilient to the risks at hand. The bad politics and forthcoming economic situation of Zimbabwe has led to instability and dramatic inflation over the last decade. This has resulted in a terrible investment climate,...

The plastic pollution of aquatic environment is undoubtedly an emerging environmental risk, as it negatively affects ecosystems globally to a great extent. To prevent the plastic soup from growing even further, a Delft-based start-up Noria has developed plastic collectors, to remove plastic from rivers and canals before it reaches the ocean. In...

Global economic losses due to flooding have increased over the last 50 years, with damages estimated in the billions of dollar each year. Governmental institutions face great challenges to reduce flood risk under the influence of population increase, urbanization and climate change. Interdisciplinary urban planning becomes more important to...

More than half of Mexico’s population is living in a type of poverty, recognized as a multidimensional challenge with a geographical context. Even though Mexico’s poverty is measured in a multifaceted way, the concept of Energy Poverty has not been studied, per se, by governmental institutions. It is until recently that the study of this concept...

Nederland heeft de ambitie om het aantal dodelijke en ernstige ongevallen met 25% te reduceren. De ontwikkeling van ongevallenvoorspellingsmodellen (OVM’s) kan hier een bijdrage aan leveren. Op basis van de ontwikkeling van OVM’s kunnen allereerst de effecten van het wegontwerp op de verkeersveiligheid beter worden ingeschat dan in de huidige...

This project investigates the feasibility of hydrogen refueling stations using photovoltaic systems for fuel cell scooters. The aim was to identify the solar electricity generation potential of noise barriers in the Netherlands and the connection between this and future theoretical hydrogen demand for fuel cell powered two wheelers (scooters or...

Three-dimensional maps are deemed better for navigation purposes as they offer a larger number and more realistic navigation cues than two-dimensional maps. Improvements in two key technologies have opened the doors towards utilization of 3D maps for car navigation devices. Advances in data acquisition technologies and data processing methods...

This study shows how historical topographic maps of the Zuid-Limburg mining area can be used to estimate the effects of mining activities on vertical ground surface motion. Coal has been the most important energy supplier for the Netherlands from the 19th century until the discovery of the large Slochteren gas field. After 1960, mining of coal...

Fugro GeoServices is currently storing their CAD models of the Petrochemical Industry as attributes of 2D lines in a spatial DBMS. This solution works well for web visualization, but not for performing analyses in 3D. The main objective of this graduation project is to create a 3D spatial DBMS with solid CAD geometries as input. The difficulty...

Where Level of Detail (LoD) allow City Geography Markup Language (CityGML) models to be shared over different application domains, only one LoD defines building interiors. As there are potentially numerous applications with a need for building interiors (but not with all the details as defined in LoD4), in order to attain a larger applicability...

Depth-contours are an essential part of any hydrographic chart—a map of a waterbody intended for safe ship navigation. Traditionally these were manually drawn by skilled hydrographers from a limited set of surveyed depth measurements. Nowadays this process of map making is shifted towards the digital domain, not in the last place because of the...

The main products of this graduation are a new pattern language to map difficult/technical interventions in spatial tiles, a GIS model for assessing urban metabolism potentials and restrictions and a new approach for applying urban metabolism measurements on neighbourhood level. A personal motivation for me is the relation between the urban...

Q\&A fora have developed into a precious tool for online knowledge exchange. Being community-driven, openly accessible and free, getting an answer to a complicated question can nowadays be a matter of minutes. This research investigates the specific case of gis.stackexchange, a technical Q&A forum used by Geographic Information Systems...

The ambient conditions could influence the breakdown strength of gas insulated substation. It is important to check if this influence will put the GIS into severe condition, especially in the presence of protrusion. A risk assessment is thus important for making decision if the GIS is safe to be operated.

The relational data model is now more than 40 years old. It's good for very diferent scenarios and can handle certain types of data very well. But it isn't perfect. An increasing number of non-relational systems are being worked on, collectively called the 'NoSQL movement'. NoSQL is an umbrella term for a loosely defined class of non-relational...

Subsidence is affecting different parts of the Netherlands. The strongest subsidence is observed in the province of Groningen due to ongoing natural gas extraction. Subsidence is also observed at several locations in the province of South Holland, where the processes of peat oxidation, soil compaction and the withdrawal of groundwater are at the...

Managed realignment involves the deliberate breaching of engineered defences to allow landward coastal migration whilst at the same time creating intertidal marshes and mudflats. Over the last two decades, this practice has become more common; however, the monitoring of realignment schemes is relatively limited and morphological changes are...

The notion of terroir covers the interaction between the natural, the cultural conditions and the grape vine itself relative to the character of the final wine product. It is about a dynamic chain whose factors get different weights in each wine region and this results in the typicality of the different terroir wine products. The Old World wine...

CityGML is a standardized data format used to store the semantic information and geometries of buildings and other object classes of 3D city models. The Level of Detail of current state of the art city models (LoD2) is not sufficient for accurate environmental simulations like noise, the solar potential of windows and other types of analyses. An...

The Dutch government set two environmental goals by 2050. One of them is being climate neutral and the other one is to have a circular economy. In order to meet both goals in the best environmental conditions, extensive environmental research is required. This thesis is one of these researches and its main focus is on the climate neutral goal by...
