    • Managing spatial selections with contextual snapshots 

      Mindek, Peter; Gröller, Eduard; Bruckner, Stefan (Wiley, 2014-12)
      Spatial selections are a ubiquitous concept in visualization. By localizing particular features, they can be analysed and compared in different views. However, the semantics of such selections often depend on specific ...

    • Mangrove forest extent and status along the Eritrean Red Sea coast 

      Hailemichael, Mussie Tesfayesus (The University of Bergen, 2015-10-08)
      A mangrove forest species and spatial extent study has been conducted in Eritrea to see if there has been mangrove forest area change over the last two decades, and to describe mangrove cover status. GIS, field work data ...

    • Mapping the fugacity of CO2 in the Nordic Seas and the northern North Atlantic Ocean 

      Kvæstad, Elise (The University of Bergen, 2013-12-20)
      Self organizing maps (SOMs) have been used to estimate seawater fugacity of CO2 (fCO2) distribution in the Nordic Seas and the northern North Atlantic Ocean for 2005-2007. Four maps were produced for each region using ...
