Along with a rapid growth in the volume of user-generated video clips, efficient video retrieval methods have become one of the most critical challenges in multimedia management. In this article, we propose a service framework using geographic information for retrieval of the videos on the web. The main idea is to describe and query videos by video-related geographic data such as video location, field of view and trajectory. Based on the point, line and polygon description for videos, we define the commonly used video retrieval methods. A video retrieval service framework and the service interfaces are designed based on the REST architecture. A prototype system is also implemented to test the services. The experiment shows that the proposed video description, retrieval methods and web services are feasible and useful. We believe that the integration of geographical video retrieval methods into existing methods will promote the geo-tagged video sharing, discovery and consumption in various web applications. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Improving the efficacy of space utilization has been listed as the primary task of land space development in the report to the Eighteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China. But with the booming development of the tourism industry, tourism land has shown the trend of rapid expansion. Therefore, the efficacious utility of the land for scenic area is The inevitable tendency of tourism development. Gulou District was chosen as the study object in this paper, and the land use of the scenic area within the district was evaluated by using fuzzy mathematical model and the data obtained by field survey and expert interviews. The results show that the lower efficacy of the current land use of the scenic area within Gulou District leaves a huge space to improve the situation. © 2013 IEEE.

The Chinese welfare lottery 'double color ball' is a lottery giant in China. In 2011, sales volume is about ¥300 million for each drawing, the average monthly sales amount is more than ¥3 billion, the highest jackpot is over ¥800 million, and there are hundreds of millions of participants with a broad social impact. This, people are concerned aboutwhether thedrawing of 'double color ball' is fair or not, that is, whether there is manipulation behind the drawings. This paper based on spatial point pattern analysis methods, by using the package spatstat from R software, taking the nearest neighbor distances (G and F functions), Ripley's K-function, Besage'sL-function, and pair correlation function g(r) methods, studies the fairness of the red ball winning numbers of the 'double color ball'. The results show that, the red ball winning numbers of 'double color ball' is fair on the whole. But for very small datasets, for example, the point pattern formed by 1 or 2 consecutive drawings of winning numbers, it is difficult to decide whether there is complete spatial randomness(CSR) or not. © 2013 IEEE.

This paper uses data from Chinese prefecture-level administrative unit to examine the extent of spatial variability of the impact that population, income, and climate have on urban residential carbon emissions. The residuals of OLS estimation of urban residential carbon emissions exhibit a significant spatial association according to the value of the Moran's I statistic. GWR model effectively reduces the spatial autocorrelation of residuals by considering spatial effect. Not only does it enhance the explanatory power of the model, but also gets local estimates of the parameters. Results show that, there is strong evidence of spatial heterogeneity for impacts of three independent variables: (1) local regression coefficients of population and income are both positive in the OLS and GWR models, but spatial variability of the effect of income is greater in the GWR model; (2) the coefficient estimate of the climate variable in the OLS model is negative, however, the direction is both positive and negative in the GWR model with the magnitude of the effect varying within and across the 302 prefecture-level administrative units in China; (3) one should carefully check the reasonableness of policy recommendations made based on global linear regression models that ignore or failed to properly assess the spatial dependence. © 2013 IEEE.

This paper collected attribute data of affecting soil erosion factor by RS and GIS, combined soil erosion model, got the load and density of soil erosion in Luoning County, and analyzed the relationship between soil erosion and its main affecting factors. The results indicated that soil erosion modulus was 2799.29t/km2 and erosion load 6495744t, 61% of Luoning County had tiny or light degree erosion, while the serious eroded area, which mainly concentrated in the west, only occupied 20% of the area, but contributed 57.64% of sediment of whole area and need more protection. There is a basically positive correlation between soil erosion and slope; midding and more serious erosion were increased in different land use such as waters, farmland, construction land, forest, and unused land. © 2013 IEEE.

This paper examines the causal relationship among economic growth, energy structure, R&D investment and carbon emission in China by using autoregressive distributed lag bounds testing approach of cointegration during the period of 1990-2011. In order to examine this linkage, theauthors use the two-step procedures. Firstly, theauthors conducted the unit root tests to measure whether the single integrated of time series is not more than 1. Secondly, theauthors explore the long-run relationships between the variables by using ARDL bounds testing approach complemented by Johansen-Juselius maximum likelihood procedure in a multivariate framework. The findings are as follows:when carbon emissions and economic growth, respectively, are the dependent variable, the other independent variables show the long-term stability cointegration relationship of the dependent variable. Whether in the short-run or long-run relationship, the impact of economic growth and R&D investment on carbon emission is not statistically significant. In the long term and short term relationships, carbon emissions have a positive impact on the economic growth. However, energy structure has a negative impact on the economic growth. The decrease in energy structure will cause carbon emissions reduction and boost economic growth in both the long-run and short-run period. Therefore, China's government should give more attention to the optimization of energy structure and make a reasonable and feasible energy saving policy. © 2013 IEEE.

Gully erosion of tillage land in northeast China cause mass land degradation and threaten the safety of grain production of China. The relationship between the spatial distribution of gullies and topographic factors, such as slope angle, aspect, slope form, SPI and TWI, as well as land use and lithology are discussed in the Keshan County of Heilongjiang province. The topographic factors are derived from Digital Elevation Model, and landuse as well as gully distribution data were interpreted from satellite images and field survey. Basis on mapped controlling factors, single factor analysis was taken to recognize high risk region of gully erosion. The result of overlay analysis showed that nearly 80% of gullies occurred in farmland and concave slope elements; high slope angle and SPI value are identified as the high gully initiation regions due to the enhancement of runoff convergence. The two patterns of gully erosion were identified via the overlay analysis of different substratum. Based on the analysis, two processes of gully erosion were identified. © 2013 IEEE.

Identifying spatial patterns of geographic entities such as retail stores is important in city for understanding how they behave. The pattern formed by the distribution of points can be measured by some quantitative methods. In Big Data era, the data sets for spatial patterns analysis are various including traditional street network data and points of interest (POIs) data in LBS (Location based services) application. This paper analyzed the spatial pattern of retail stores and its correlations with street centrality using POIs data in Zhengzhou, China. Firstly, the paper provided an exploratory analysis of spatial patterns using the centrographic methods including Standard Deviational Ellipse and Average Nearest Neighbor. Secondly, the paper uncovered the spatial distribution of retail stores using the kernel density estimation (KDE). Finally, the paper calculated the street centrality of Zhengzhou using three centrality assessment indexes and converted all nodes centrality index values to raster pixel using KDE for correlation analysis. Results show that the retail stores are clustering pattern and mainly elongated along the west-east direction. The street centralities are correlated with the retail store location in Zhengzhou, and there is a different level of correlation between them. The paper reveals that the spatial pattern analysis and street centralities index are valuable in location analysis or urban planning. © 2015 IEEE.
