GIS technology changed the way cities are planned. Software suite like ArcGIS supports complex large data analysis, simulations and management. At the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning in Novi Sad students learn how to integrate their knowledge about urban planning and architecture by using several essential components of ArcGIS.In this paper various approaches in spatial and data analysis based on GIS technology are introduced. Also several student work case studies are presented. Temporal change of urban morphology through graphs and animations and spatial analysis of present urban structure are two major topics presented in this work.

One of the most apparent features of information society is the increasing number, diversity and complexity as well as the continuous and fast change of technical tools surrounding everything and everyone. In an interaction with the adoption of new technologies, the receptive medium, the society does also change, while the environmental changes require adaptation. The change, as the new tools and the additional services are becoming a part of the citizens’ everyday life at an extent never seen before, develops new deviances. However, the role of law in this change is constant: it has to regulate the social relations in a way that it could ensure social collaboration and prevent, punish any offence against it. Several branches of law within this complex legal system have a different role, where criminal law means the sanction keystone and stands guard. However, to be able to understand the role of criminal law, we have to discover the environment that needs to be regulated and to understand the incentives of deviant behaviours within this change.

Abstract  

This study is the first to provide estimates of the economies of scale in science and technology agencies. As such, it sheds new light on issues of interest to policy-makers. The study identifies that there are strong economies of scale to be captured in organisations with budgets less than $200 million. The least efficient agency in the study requires 136 times more input per unit of output than the most efficient one. The study was unable to identify diseconomies of scale up to the range of $3 billion. The policy implications for countries which are small in science in particular, are discussed.

Abstract  

In the paper we will present the adjustments we implemented on the mapping procedure. We consider them as important improvements to make the maps more user-friendly. The improvements concern the implementation of graphical user interfaces, and the addition of ‘map-external’ information. This interface enables the users of the maps to focus onto their specific areas of interest and to determine the position of actors in the field. In addition the ‘map-external’ information contributes to an objective validation of the maps. The presentation will include a demonstration of the electronic maps and added tools.

Abstract  

India's isotope programme is today largely self-sustaining both in terms of availability of isotope products and the range of their applications in medicine, industry, hydrology, agriculture and research. Nuclear medicine is practised by over 200 medical institutions whereas 300 organisations offer radioimmunoassay service. Tracer technology, nucleonic gauging and isotope raiography are fairly well accepted by the Indian industry for troubleshooting, NDT and process control. There are three large radiation plants for sterilisation of medical products. Radiation chemical processing with both gamma and EB shows good promise. In agriculture, sixteen mutants of various crops have been produced using gamma-radiation and distributed for commerical cultivation. A strong programme of research on radiation preservation of food has finally resulted in the clearance of some irradiated foods by the Government of India.

Abstract  

Carbon nanotube field emission display (CNT-FED) represents both emerging application of nanotechnology and revolutionary invention of display. Therefore, it is an important subject to monitor the states and trends of CNT-FED technology before the next stage of development. The present paper uses patent bibliometric analysis and patent network analysis to monitor the technological trends in the field of CNT-FED. These results firstly reveal the different aspects of patenting activities in the field of CNT-FED. Then, patent network analysis indicates the developing tendency of worldwide FED production based on the synthesis of CNT materials. Furthermore, key technologies of three clusters can be identified as the depositing CNT on substrate, coating phosphor on screen and assembling process for whole device. Finally, emitter material is taken for the key factor in R&D work to improve the efficacy in CNT-FED technology.

Abstract  

The link between science and technology represents a major strategic stake, so the relation between scientific bibliographic references and technical bibliographic references can be of very important documentary interest. To set up this link, International Patent Classification catchwords have been used as a switching language. A previous feasibility study had shown the possibilities of such a full automatic correspondence and its obvious inadequacies. We present here the most important modifications brought to this correspondence, in particular the consideration of multilingual indexes which allow to link several indexation fields with one of the most complete representation of patent classification. The major evolution of our project affects the correspondence mechanism which now generates a global reindexation of bibliographic reference with classification codes. We also discuss the concept of correspondence itself which must be interpreted as a simple presumption of the link. There are some consequences due to these developments: first, insofar as there is not an univocal relation, end users do not have to select switching keywords which generate concordances. They can directly use codes which symbolize the industrial property classification. Next, main documentary indicators do not seem to be adapted to measure the performance evaluation of this new field. It has the single role of suggesting trails that can be explored. Lastly, it seems that only end users should be able to supply a complete validation and we show that a documentary validation is not sufficient.
