Can't Find a Parking Space? This App Can Help | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it
Crowdsourcing successfully helps people find cheap gas and avoid traffic, but locating the best parking spot requires more than just good will.

Scientists Use Wikipedia to Predict Disease Outbreaks - Tech Times

Scientists Use Wikipedia to Predict Disease Outbreaks - Tech Times | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it
Researchers say they can predict the outbreak of an infectious disease by watching people search Wikipedia for information and symptoms. The technique could yield a global disease-forecasting system, they suggest.

Swarm Behavior - A single ant or bee isn't smart, but their colonies are. The study of swarm intelligence is providing insights that can help humans manage complex systems, from truck routing to military robots.

DrDids's insight:

First beautiful picture ... and if we re-scoop this it may become buzz ... then we will have acted like a swarm does! but I guess what is really interesting is when something goes buzz and modify itself at the same time and then another buzz mixes with it creating a quite new ... that's quite complex as one cna only identify the origin at the beginning of the mix of things  / ideas etc.!

Didier Leibovici's PageMaison | geocomputational statistics and GIS | Scoop.it

This is the BPMN representation of the SIEL model (Loireau et al. (2006)) some interesting error propagation studies betwen categories (e.g. soil), quantitative attribute (e.g. biomass), positions (e.g. vegetaion map) etc ...are currently investigated. These would make such scientific geoworklfow models very useful for decision making. 

Can meta-propagation with multivariate uptake using copula distribution be more than a theoretical solution? 

I think that would do a very interesting PhD. email me if you are interested!

ComplexInsight's curator insight, May 6, 2013 12:06 AM

Palantir teamed with the OpenGeo to extend PostGIS to support WGS84 coordinate system and geodetic coordinates. This enabled Palantir to migrate from Oracle spatial to PostGIS as the underpinning spatial database for their Gotham platform.  The benefits to the wider spatial community are signficiant since WGS84 based mapping is often a requirement in government and geoscience applications. Palantir's sponsored open source development undertaken by OpenGeo enables other to take advantage of the new features and integrate PostGIS into workflows.
