  • Geographical information system ; Historical geography ; Honshu ; Internet ; Japan ; Regional analysis ; Spatial statistics ; Statistics
  • This paper introduces an internet GIS for historical regional statistics developed by the Laboratory of Spatial Information Science, Doctoral Program in Geoenvironmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba. The paper discusses the objectives
  • of this project, the available data, its scope and features, and some of the prospects and challenges as an online geospatial database facility of historical statistics of Japan since the Meiji period.

  • Analysis of fire events and controlling factors in eastern India using spatial scan and multivariate statistics
  • statistic that quantifies hotspot areas of fire risk has been used to identify statistically significant fire clusters during the ten-year time period. To assess the causative factors of fires, topographic, vegetation, climatic, anthropogenic
  • and accessibility factors were used in a multivariate statistical framework. Results suggested a clear variation in hotspots of fire occurences among districts.

  • The paper presents a demographic analysis of Polish voivodships, with a focus on Łódzkie and Świętokrzyskie. The basis for the work was provided by statistics from the Central Statistical Office of Poland (e.g. as regards the population of Poland
  • in the years 2002-2007 and the Polish population forecast formulated in 2008). Despite their central locations within Poland, Łódzkie and Świętokrzyskie voivodships have experienced a decline in their natural increases per 1000 head of population since 2002
  • (at rates of 3.2 and - 1.4‰ respectively up to 2007). This paper therefore seeks to explain the natural decreases in question, by reference to a dimensional analysis of population, structure as regards age, other vital statistics and data on migrations

  • This paper is based on the hypothesis that the official statistical data does not reflect actual succession status on mountain farms in Slovenia and also on Slovene farms in general, since the census criteria defining succession are still incomplete
  • . With the purpose of confirming our assumption, we formulated more accurate criteria and also determined as to what is the real status of succession on mountain farms in Slovenia. It has proved to be more favourable, than it is presented by the official statistics

  • This paper focuses on the urban biogeographical study of tree quality with regard to habitat conditions that vary mainly by land cover. Statistical analysis, including logistic regression, was used to test the hypothesis that tree performance
  • performance was related to land cover. Exotic and evergreen species grew better than indigenous and deciduous, offering hints on species-habitat matching. Detailed field and statistical analyses could yield tree-environment information to enhance urban

  • The AA. developed statistical models of colluvium and shallow-groundwater distributions to aid landslide hazard assessments. The models were developed using a geographic information system, digital geologic maps, digital topography, subsurface
  • exploration results, the groundwater flow modeling VS2DI and regression analyses. Input to the colluvium model includes slope, distance to a hillslope-crest escarpment, and escarpment slope and height. The AA. developed different statistical relations
