More > researches and data collections. As we know, geographic data is being collected and stored at an ever-increasing rate by government agencies, large corporations, small to medium companies, and individuals. It is a challenge to make those valuable data resources available to a wide range of data consumers. To make data easily discoverable, metadata standards have been established. With metadata, data can be easily indexed and cataloged into clearinghouses and online catalog systems. Data collecting and data producing organizations still face challenges to submitting their data for indexing due to missing metadata, invalid metadata, and incompatible metadata. This book proposed a solution to address geospatial metadata interoperability and compatibility issues.< Less

On the Structure of Complex Networks By Daniel Grady

Large-scale complex networks in natural, social, and technological systems exhibit an abundance of rich information, and extracting meaningful structural features from network data is one of the most... More > challenging tasks in network theory. Nonetheless, understanding these networks is essential to explaining phenomena in transportation, epidemiology, sociology, economics, and other fields. This book presents three novel analyses of large-scale empirical networks. First, a comparison of two world-wide transportation systems reveals many statistical similarities despite extremely different operational and geographic constraints. Second, we develop a new method for determining geographic borders based on human mobility. Finally, we demonstrate how measuring networks in terms of shortest-path trees can identify a robust network skeleton, and its relevance in predicting dynamical processes.< Less

In the 74 years from the October Revolution in 1917 to the fall of Communism in 1991, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, its leaders and its people, had to face a number of difficult challenges: the overthrow of the Tsarist autocracy, the establishment of a new state, four years of civil war, a famine, transition to a mixed economy, political strife after Lenin's death, industrialization, collectivization, a second famine, political Show Trials, World War II, post-war reconstruction and repression, the "Thaw" after Stalin's death, Khrushchev's experimentation, and Brezhnev's decline. Each of these challenges engendered new solutions and modifications in what can be loosely called the evolving "Soviet system."< Less
