Sam recently commenced his PhD at RMIT as part of Project 4.104 — LandFor: Landsat for Forests.

In this project the team is researching methods to take advantage of the extensive archive of Landsat satellite imagery to model and map disturbance in Victorian forests. By creating an ‘image stack’ from almost 30 years of images, the team can analyse change as a function of time on a pixel by pixel basis. Using a combination of machine learning and user trained multiple lines of evidence, large area disturbance histories will be modelled.

Prior to beginning his PhD Sam worked for a number of years in the Victorian State Government in spatial/mapping roles, particularly focused on emergency management.

P4.45 - Spatial Variations in Natural Disasters

Thesis Abstract

Daniel Hogg and University of Canterbury colleagues Simon Kingham, Thomas M. Wilson, Edward Griffin, and Michael Ardagh published the paper Geographic variation of clinically diagnosed mood and anxiety disorders in Christchurch after the 2010/11 earthquakes in October 2014.

Abstract

The 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquake killed 185 people, injured over 8000, damaged over 100 000 buildings, and on-going aftershocks maintained high anxiety levels.

This paper examines the dose of exposure effect of earthquake damage assessments, earthquake intensity measures, liquefaction and lateral spreading on mood and anxiety disorders in Christchurch after this event. We hypothesise that such disorders are more likely to develop in people who have experienced greater exposure to these impacts within their neighbourhood than others who have been less exposed, but also live in the city. For this purpose, almost all clinically diagnosed incident and relapsed cases in Christchurch in a 12 month period after the 2011 earthquake were analysed. Spatio-temporal cluster analysis shows that people living in the widely affected central and eastern parts after the 2010/11 earthquakes have a 23% higher risk of developing a mood or anxiety disorder than people living in other parts of the city. Generally, mood and anxiety-related disorders increase with closer proximity to damage from liquefaction and moderate to major lateral spreading, as well as areas that are more likely to suffer from damage in future earthquakes.

P4.53 - Adoption of SI Tools in Planning

Thesis Abstract

Patrizia Russo and her colleagues Maria Francesca Costabile, Rosa Lanzilotti and Christopher J. Pettit published the work Usability of Planning Support Systems: An Evaluation Framework in 2014.

Abstract

Previous research on Planning Support Systems (PSS) showed that low usability of these computer-based tools is one of the reasons why they are not widely used by planning professionals. Few studies for evaluating PSS usability are performed, possibly because developers do not regard it as their task, do not have enough skills to conduct them, and have not been stimulated so far to appreciate their value. In this chapter, a framework is described that aims at guiding usability evaluation of PSS; it is developed on the basis of a more general usability evaluation framework.

The current version of the framework has been applied to evaluate three PSS by performing a test with a small group of land use planners. Results of this user test are discussed, also providing some recommendations for the design of PSS, specifically those addressing Land Suitability Analysis (LSA), capable to generate a positive user experience.

Thesis Abstract

Cynthia Yu along with Curtin University colleagues Petra Helmholz, David Belton and Geoff West, published the paper Grammer-based automatic 3D model reconstruction from terrestrial laser scanning data in the May issue of The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Volume XL-4, 2014.

Abstract

The automatic reconstruction of 3D buildings has been an important research topic during the last years. In this paper, a novel method is proposed to automatically reconstruct the 3D building models from segmented data based on pre-defined formal grammar and rules.

Such segmented data can be extracted e.g. from terrestrial or mobile laser scanning devices. Two steps are considered in detail. The first step is to transform the segmented data into 3D shapes, for instance using the DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) format which is a CAD data file format used for data interchange between AutoCAD and other program. Second, we develop a formal grammar to describe the building model structure and integrate the pre-defined grammars into the reconstruction process. Depending on the different segmented data, the selected grammar and rules are applied to drive the reconstruction process in an automatic manner. Compared with other existing approaches, our proposed method allows the model reconstruction directly from 3D shapes and takes the whole building into account.
