Context based interoperability to support infrastructure management in municipalities
Tufan, Emrah; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2010)
Interoperability between Geographic Information System (GIS) of different infrastructure companies is still a problem to be handled. Infrastructure companies deal with many operations as a part of their daily routine such as a regular maintenance, or sometimes they deal with unexpected situations such as a malfunction due to natural event, like a flood or an earthquake. These situations may affect all companies and affected infrastructure companies response to these effects. Responses may result in conseque...
Plural: A decentralized business process modeling method
Turetken, Oktay; Demirörs, Onur (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
Top-down and centralized approaches prevail in the design and improvement of business processes. However, centralized structures pose difficulties for organizations in adapting to a rapidly changing business environment. Here we present the Plural method which can be used to guide organizations in performing process modeling in a decentralized way. Instead of a centralized group of people understanding, modeling and improving processes, our method allows individuals to model and improve their own processes ...
Comparison of feature-based and image registration-based retrieval of image data using multidimensional data access methods
Arslan, Serdar; Yazıcı, Adnan; Sacan, Ahmet; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Acar, Esra (Elsevier BV, 2013-07-01)
In information retrieval, efficient similarity search in multimedia collections is a critical task In this paper, we present a rigorous comparison of three different approaches to the image retrieval problem, including cluster-based indexing, distance-based indexing, and multidimensional scaling methods. The time and accuracy trade-offs for each of these methods are demonstrated on three different image data sets. Similarity of images is obtained either by a feature-based similarity measure using four MPEG-...
Evaluation Of A Hospital Information System In An International Context: Towards Implementing Pb-Ism In Turkey
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Baykal, Nazife (WILEY, 111 RIVER ST, HOBOKEN 07030-5774, NJ USA, 2006-12)
High quality information technology (IT) support is an integral factor in the success of today's health sector. However, the medical profession is considered to be low level investors in IT when compared to other sectors. Many international comparisons look at the expenditure spent on health IT as a basis for determining how effective the systems are. This prescriptive mainly cost/benefit approach is believed to be deficient as a sole factor in evaluation procedures. The research in this study supports the ...
A fuzzy software prototype for spatial phenomena: case study precipitation distribution
Yanar, Tahsin Alp; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2010)
As the complexity of a spatial phenomenon increases, traditional modeling becomes impractical. Alternatively, data-driven modeling, which is based on the analysis of data characterizing the phenomena, can be used. In this thesis, the generation of understandable and reliable spatial models using observational data is addressed. An interpretability oriented data-driven fuzzy modeling approach is proposed. The methodology is based on construction of fuzzy models from data, tuning and fuzzy model simplificatio...
