Sözer, Aziz
Modeling spatiotemporal data, in particular fuzzy and complex spatial objects representing geographic entities and relations, is a topic of great importance in geographic information systems, computer vision, environmental data management systems, etc. Because of complex requirements, it is challenging to design a database for spatiotemporal data and its features and to effectively query them. This thesis presents a new approach for modeling, indexing and querying the spatiotemporal data of fuzzy spatial and complex objects and/or spatial relations. As a case study, we model and implement a meteorological application in an intelligent database architecture, which combines an object-oriented database with a knowledge base.

Indexing Fuzzy Spatiotemporal Data for Efficient Querying: A Meteorological Application
Sozer, Aziz; Yazıcı, Adnan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (2015-10-01)
Spatiotemporal data, in particular fuzzy and complex spatial objects representing geographic entities and relations, is a topic of great importance in geographic information systems and environmental data management systems. For database researchers, modeling and designing a database of fuzzy spatiotemporal data and querying such a database efficiently have been challenging issues due to complex spatial features and uncertainty involved. This paper presents an integrated approach to modeling, indexing, and ...

Soezer, Aziz; Yazıcı, Adnan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Petry, Frederick E. (2010-01-01)
Modeling and querying spatiotemporal data, in particular fuzzy and complex spatial objects representing geographic entities and relations are challenging topics that have many applications in geographic information systems. In a recent article the authors have presented an approach to these problems. The present chapter focuses on the issues that arise from implementing this approach. As a case study the implementation of a meteorological database application that combines an object-oriented database with a...
Data sharing and access with a corba data distribution service implementation
Dursun, Mustafa; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Data Distribution Service (DDS) specification defines an API for Data-Centric Publish-Subscribe (DCPS) model to achieve efficient data distribution in distributed computing environments. Lack of definition of interoperability architecture in DDS specification obstructs data distribution between different and heterogeneous DDS implementations. In this thesis, DDS is implemented as a CORBA service to achieve interoperability and a QoS policy is proposed for faster data distribution with CORBA features.
Verification of Modular Diagnosability With Local Specifications for Discrete-Event Systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-09-01)
In this paper, we study the diagnosability verification for modular discrete-event systems (DESs), i.e., DESs that are composed of multiple components. We focus on a particular modular architecture, where each fault in the system must be uniquely identified by the modular component where it occurs and solely based on event observations of that component. Hence, all diagnostic computations for faults to be detected in this architecture can be performed locally on the respective modular component, and the obt...
