A case study in weather pattern searching using a spatial data warehouse model

Köylü, Çağlar
Data warehousing and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology has been used to access, visualize and analyze multidimensional, aggregated, and summarized data. Large part of data contains spatial components. Thus, these spatial components convey valuable information and must be included in exploration and analysis phases of a spatial decision support system (SDSS). On the other hand, Geographic Information Systems (GISs) provide a wide range of tools to analyze spatial phenomena and therefore must be included in the analysis phases of a decision support system (DSS). In this regard, this study aims to search for answers to the problem how to design a spatially enabled data warehouse architecture in order to support spatio-temporal data analysis and exploration of multidimensional data. Consequently, in this study, the concepts of OLAP and GISs are synthesized in an integrated fashion to maximize the benefits generated from the strengths of both systems by building a spatial data warehouse model. In this context, a multidimensional spatio-temporal data model is proposed as a result of this synthesis. This model addresses the integration problem of spatial, non-spatial and temporal data and facilitates spatial data exploration and analysis. The model is evaluated by implementing a case study in weather pattern searching.

An automated tool for information security management system
Erkan, Ahmet; Arifoğlu, Ali; Department of Information Systems (2006)
This thesis focuses on automation of processes of Information Security Management System. In accordance with two International Standards, ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and ISO/IEC 17799:2005, to automate the activities required for a documented ISMS as much as possible helps organizations. Some of the well known tools in this scope are analyzed and a comparative study on them including “InfoSec Toolkit”, which is developed for this purpose in the thesis scope, is given. “InfoSec Toolkit” is based on ISO/IEC 27001:2005...
A pattern classification approach boosted with genetic algorithms
Yalabık, İsmet; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Ensemble learning is a multiple-classier machine learning approach which combines, produces collections and ensembles statistical classiers to build up more accurate classier than the individual classiers. Bagging, boosting and voting methods are the basic examples of ensemble learning. In this thesis, a novel boosting technique targeting to solve partial problems of AdaBoost, a well-known boosting algorithm, is proposed. The proposed systems nd an elegant way of boosting a bunch of classiers successively t...
Mobile network traffic modelling
Çakmak, Yadigar; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the traffic patterns in the mobile data networks. In this work, a simple Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) network was modeled in order to be used in simulations. For the purpose of using in the CDPD model, a synthetic bursty traffic model was produced and using different traffic patterns some performance investigations were made in CDPD network. During the whole work, OPNET simulation tool was used. The CDPD network modeled by OPNET simulation tool was compared wi...
An application of the minimal spanning tree approach to the cluster stability problem
Volkovich, Z.; Barzily, Z.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Toledano-Kitai, D.; Avros, R. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-03-01)
Among the areas of data and text mining which are employed today in OR, science, economy and technology, clustering theory serves as a preprocessing step in the data analyzing. An important component of clustering theory is determination of the true number of clusters. This problem has not been satisfactorily solved. In our paper, this problem is addressed by the cluster stability approach. For several possible numbers of clusters, we estimate the stability of the partitions obtained from clustering of samp...
