Geospatial Anarchy: Managing datasets the Open Source way

Atle Frenvik Sveen
OpenStreetMap (OSM) is the largest and best-known example of geospatial data creation using Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI). A large group of non-specialists joins their efforts online to create an open, worldwide map of the world. The project differs from traditional management of geospatial data on several accounts: both the underlying technology (Open Source components) and the mindset (schema-less structures using tags and changesets). We review how traditional organizations are currently using the OSM technology to...

A Case Study of Formative Assessment Using Mobile Applications and Peripherals to Encourage ‘Real-Life’ Critical Analysis in the Biosciences

Daniel J Peart, Orrin J Fairhead & Keyleigh A Stamp
This paper shares a practice of encouraging critical analysis in science students by comparing mobile applications and peripherals to traditional tools to record physiological variables such as heart rate and blood pressure. A progressive series of case studies is described with learning outcomes mapped to the benchmark statement for Bioscience from the United Kingdom's Quality Assurance Agency. A student reflection and staff commentary of the practice is also offered.

Territorial stigmatisation and the negotiation of place

Jørgen Riber Christensen & Kim Toft Hansen
The article addresses the negotiated meaning of notorious places through a consideration of a recent tendency in Danish TV documentaries where marginalized, often peripheral, places are portrayed and debated. Based partly on sociological research about territorial stigmatisation, partly on location studies as a method, the article stresses that inhabitants often contest and contradict the mediated stigmatization of their towns from an ambivalent position. On the one hand, participants in the programs are aware of the...

Toward Smart City Business Models

Sari Perätalo & Petri Ahokangas
This paper discusses a business model concept in a public smart city context. To date, there is no unified understanding of how smart cities create value for their stakeholders. This study aims to contribute to the research by investigating the content and dynamics of a business model approach for smart cities.

Introducing Multi-Stage Qualification for Micro-Level Decision-Making (MSQMLDM) Method in the Energy Sector – A case study of Photovoltaic and Wind Power in Tehran

Sami Saleki
Buildings are consuming approximately 60% of the total electricity supply and 40% of the primary energy consumption around the world. Further, they are responsible for approximately one third of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Various approaches have been adopted to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions in buildings such as green buildings and low-carbon buildings. In spite of the existing differences among these methods, some similarities are available, especially in using renewable energy. The present...

Dissolving Europe?

Birgit Eriksson
When the performance Living Dead premiered in Denmark in 2016, its reception was characterized by an equal amount of praise and unease. Written and directed by Christian Lollike, Living Dead dealt with the increasing number of refugees coming to Europe from Africa and the Middle East. Controversially, it was a “horror performance” focusing on the fear, anxiety, and potential dissolution of Europe. The article examines the agency of the performance. How does it engage our...

Ejendomsdata – forandringer og muligheder

Peter Knudsen
I artiklen præsenteres de ændringer der følger af implementeringen af Ejendomsdataprogrammet under Grunddataprogrammet. Der redegøres bl.a. nærmere for implementeringsplanerne, samt muligheder og gevinster for anvendere. Derudover er der fokuseret på sammenhængene med resten af Grunddataprogrammet og den videre drift, vedligeholdelse og videreudvikling af ejendomsdataområdet. Artiklen er udarbejdet i sammenhæng med et indlæg på Kortdage 2017.

试析“六方会谈”各方在朝核问题上的地缘政治博弈 / An Analysis of the Geopolitical Game among the Parties of the "Six Party Talks" on the DPRK Nuclear Issue

Lin Limin & Cheng Yake
国际社会通常认为相关国家在朝核问题上的博弈是一场扩散与反扩散博弈。本文认为,朝鲜核问题的战略本质是相关方在扩散与反扩散博弈旗号下的一场地缘政治博弈,扩散与反扩散博弈固然重要,却不是其本质。朝鲜核问题之所以进进退退,不时高潮迭起,之所以陷入“无解”僵局,是由于国际社会是按扩散与反扩散博弈的政治逻辑认知、判断、处置一个地缘政治问题,其结果必然是药不对症。要从根本上解决朝鲜核问题,需要国际社会重新认识朝鲜核问题的地缘政治本质,从地缘政治角度谋求合理解决。 The international community generally believes that the game on the DPRK nuclear issue among related countries is about proliferation and nonproliferation. This paper argues that DPRK’s nuclear issue is a geopolitical game in essence, and only looks like a game about proliferation. The struggle between proliferation and nonproliferation is an important element of the game, but it does reflect its essence. The DPRK nuclear issue is caught in a deadlock with no solution in...

Business Models and Complexity

Gianluigi Viscusi, Lorenzo Massa & Christopher L. Tucci
  Purpose: To offer a -necessarily non-exhaustive- analysis of the meaning and significance of the notion of a complex system for research on the Business Model (BM). Design/Methodology/Approach: Conceptual paper Findings: Drawing from early research in complexity and debates that have inspired work in General System Theory, system thinking and cybernetics, we identify four insights, notably i) modeling of complex systems, ii) interdependencies, iii) nested hierarchies and iv) information processing that, we contend, have the...

Lessons Learned Implementing Project-Based Learning in a Multi-Campus Blended Learning Environment

Joao Alberto Arantes Do Amaral, Cintia Rejane Möller Araujo & Rebeca Júlia Rodrigues Lino Dos Santos
In this article, we describe a project management course developed in a multi-campus, blended learning environment, with the participation of 14 NGOs. There were 70 undergraduate students involved, from three campuses of the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil. We discuss how the course was conceptualized, provide an outline of its curriculum and online components, and analyze its successes and failures. To gather data, we used a convergent parallel mixed method approach, and we analyzed...
