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 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.

We all have walked on a street when suddenly someone comes over to you asking for directions. Sometimes, people do not know where they are and they do not know how to reach their destination. They are lost. However, people should not depend on others to find their way. The urban fabric should be legible enough to find one’s way. The problem...

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...

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...

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...

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...

We do live in interesting times. Social, political and financial turmoil, peak oil and nuclear accidents all contribute to the realisation that perhaps things need to change in our energy system. Providing the right type of energy at the right place at the right time is of course the answer. As the potential yields of renewable energy sources...

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...

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...

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 thesis consists of 7 chapters. The first chapter will explain the background, motivations and the general overview of the thesis. Chapter 2 is a literature review describing the physics behind the creation of PDs. The conditions necessary for the occurrence of PDs are covered in addition to an analysis of the different types of PD in GIS...

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...

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...

This thesis focusses on the intersection 3D Boolean set operation on voxel data represented as surfaces, with other 3D surface based vector data, in GIS. The Application of this research makes the linkage with geohydrology possible: based on the vectorised GeoTOP (TNO) data the water infiltration and storage capacity of specific locations can be...

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...

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...

Detection of partial discharge (PD) in any high voltage equipment is of great importance to improve the reliability of the device and the power system. Characteristics of PDs, such as: rate of occurrence, magnitude, location and the type; gives information of the assets that must be considered. Nowadays, there are many different methods for...

The rapid growth of the PV industry has meant that prices have been falling steeply, making them more accessible for a wider range of applications. The combined use of noise barriers as energy generating facilities, usually coined as PVNBs has been occurring since the late 80’s. It has not realised wide spread implementation, remaining mostly in...

The heating transition goals of the Netherlands are ambitious. To reach the goal of an 80% reduction of CO2 emission by 2050, the total residential heat consumption would need to be drastically cut down. The Dutch government is leaning towards implementing large-scale heating networks and reusing waste heat from non-renewable industry. However,...
