The electronic commerce has become an integral part of the global economy during the last decade. The most obvious indication of the importance of electronic commerce in the world economy is rapidly increasing Internet use in trade and other sectors. The successful growth of e-commerce promotes the use of other electronic media, as well as it is perspective for development of territories located in backcountry and remote regions. In the result of the Internet and electronic commerce technological development there can be observed changes also in the business environment. In these circumstances successful strategies applied in different levels and sectors for the implementation of the most modern information technology achievements, as well as for the development of professionals with appropriate knowledge, expertise and skills, are becoming increasingly important for the development of electronic commerce in Latvia. The article will view the current situation, will explain the main limiting factors and advantages for successful development of the electronic commerce in Latvia. © Rezekne Higher Education Institution (Rēzeknes Augstskola), Rezekne 2015.

In the sawmill industry in Latvia the roundwood represents about 70% of the total production cost. The quantity measurements of the round wood are required throughout the logic chain of wood from forest to the sawmills but inspite of a large proportion of the total cost the term “true volume” of roundwood is equally actual for supplies and processors of wood. The roundwood volume results differ measured the same load by measuring the diameters of log in short intervals using harvester measurement systems and in sawmills by measuring the diameters of log in short intervals using electronic 3D systems or measured manually using the most accurate method according to the requirements of standard LVS 82:2003 by measuring top and butt diameter. This means that it is a great interest in industry to develop the measurement methods and systems to have a lower cost and more efficient algorithm to determine the wood volume. The purpose of this study is to compare the wood volume calculation results made by the most accurate manual and automatic measurement methods and give the recommendations for minimizing difference between them. The research is a continuation to the work done in the project „Harmonisation of piece-by-piece measurement methods of roundwood approved by Standard LVS 82:2003 „Apaļo kokmateriālu uzmērīšana” (Miklasevics, Z., 2013). © Rezekne Higher Education Institution (Rēzeknes Augstskola), Rezekne 2015.

Research of different studies related to collaboration municipality ─ university allows to establish a fact that it is very important for both partners and has distinctive forms. The core questions of this research are as follows: Is the regional university significant player in regional sustainable tourism development? What forms of collaboration among regional university and municipality are possible? The aim of this research is to examine the experience of regional university in sustainable tourism development in regional area. This research is performed on the illustration of collaboration among regional university (Rezeknes Augstskola) and Dagda county, which is one of the 19-th rural county in Latgale region. A new approach to the collaboration municipality ─ regional university is offered taking into account the possibilities of regional university in improvement of human resources capacity, in improvement of municipality administrative capacity, and in development of sustainable tourism products. The offered approach was set up by taking into account the interests of all stakeholders in this area. © Rezekne Higher Education Institution (Rēzeknes Augstskola), Rezekne 2015.

Ontology alignment, or ontology matching, is a technique of mapping different concepts between ontologies. For this purpose at least two ontologies are required. In certain scenarios, such as data integration, heterogeneous database integration and data model compatibility evaluation, a need to transform a relational database schema to an ontology can arise. To conduct a successful transformation it is necessary to identify the differences between relational database schema and ontology information representation methods, and then to define the transformation rules. The most straight forward but time consuming way to carry out transformation is to do it manually. Often this is not an option due to the size of data to be transformed. For this reason there is a need for an automated solution. The automatic transformation of OWL ontology from relational database schema is presented in this paper; the data representation differences between relational database schema and OWL ontologies are described; the transformation rules are defined and the transformation tool’s prototype is developed to perform the described transformation. © Rezekne Higher Education Institution (Rēzeknes Augstskola), Rezekne 2015.
