The purpose of this chapter is to outline patterns to give construction or updating of a legacy GIS some discipline and structure. In fact the GIS pattern for an Enterprise...

The purpose of my research is to attempt to understand why these laws were set within the Old Testament and to compare and contrast different scholarly approaches to this very interesting topic. Many have reviewed the dietary laws within Leviticus and Deuteronomy, questioning whether they were...

Viewshed is a geographic area that is visible to the human eye from a fixed angle or point. It's usually used in areas such as urban planning, archaeology and in military operations. The four corner of the building provide more accurate result than the centre of the building simply because the four corners are more visible than the point at the middle of the building as the observation point. The nodes and vertices that form the four corners can be easily used as observation point,...
