The Geoinformatics & Geostatistics (GIGS) promotes rigorous research that makes a significant contribution in advancing knowledge for geoinformatics and geostatistics. GIGS include all major themes pertaining to the use of spatial data in various activities.
Geoinformatics & Geostatistics is a subscription based journal that provides a range of options to purchase our articles and also permits unlimited Internet Access to complete Journal content. It accepts research, review papers, online letters to the editors & brief comments on previously published articles or other relevant findings in SciTechnol. Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by a group of peer review experts in the field and ensures that the published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate and reliable.
Active Faults on the Satellite Image of Azerbaijan Province, Northwestern Iran
Lake Urmia in northwestern Iran is one of the hypersaline lakes of world. In the Urmia region a Cenozoic island arc was formed by northeastward subduction of Neo-Tethyan oceanic plate beneath central Iran; the lake is therefore located in the fore-arc basin tectonic setting.
Spatial Heterogeneity of Tectonic Features in the Area between the Qatar-Kazerun and the Minab Faults, the Southeast of the Zagros Fold-and-Thrust Belt, Iran
Tectonic activity in the southeast of the Zagros of Iran varies in intensity. Investigators have evaluated the tectonics using the geological and geophysical features of the region for several decades. We have analyzed many of the data geostatistically to map the two-dimensional spatial distributions of seismicity, topography and structure. We distinguished two contrasting tectonic domains:the less tectonic activities in the north-northeast than southsouthwest.
The Five Qualities of Life in Europe: Multidimensional Spatial Typology of Countries with a Special Attention to Ukraine
Which of regions in Europe is the most attractive? Where is it best to live and work – on objective grounds? This article offers a method of typology of the European states from a viewpoint of their development under four dimensions of quality of life: competitiveness of the economy, social well-being, environmental performance and penetration of post-industrial tendencies.
Earth Atmospheric Land Surface Temperature and Station Quality in the Contiguous United States
A survey organized by A. Watts has thrown doubt on the usefulness of historic thermometer data in analyzing the record of global warming. That survey found that 70% of the USHCN temperature stations had potential temperature biases from 2°C to 5°C, large compared to the estimated global warming (1956 to 2005) of 0.64 ± 0.13°C. In the current paper we study this issue with two approaches. The first is a simple histogram study of temperature trends in groupings of stations based on Watt’s survey of station quality.
