By Sébastien Caquard, Laurene Vaughan, William Cartwright

This publication enhances the transforming into physique of literature exploring the relationships among arts and cartography . it truly is certain from the former ones through its major concentration: The a number of methods of representing a database. within the context of the exponential raise of the amount of geospatial information to be had, addressing this factor turns into severe and has now not but bought a lot cognizance. moreover, the content material of the database – environmental matters within the urban – provides a powerful social and political texture to the venture. the anticipated viewers for this e-book are educational in addition to scholars attracted to the relationships among artwork and cartography, position and expertise, strength and representations. This e-book may possibly function an notion for neighborhood teams and groups facing environmental injustice worldwide. ultimately, at an area scale, this publication may turn into an immense reference for people, groups and associations attracted to environmental matters within the urban of Montreal.

The notice of surroundings safeguard is a smart success of people; an expression of self-awareness. even if the assumption of residing whereas holding the surroundings isn't new, it hasn't ever been so generally and deeply practiced by way of any international locations in heritage love it is this day. From the overdue 90s within the final century, the unusually speedy improvement of computing device technology has introduced many new applied sciences that have already been utilized in numerous fields like production, army, aerospace and pharmacy.

Environmental Release of and Exposure to Iron Oxide and Silver Nanoparticles: Prospective Estimations Based on Product Application Scenarios

During this thesis a potential method used to be constructed to spot and to evaluate present in addition to almost certainly upcoming product functions with specialise in environmental releases and exposures of engineered nanomaterials. The built product program eventualities have been illustrated in case experiences on iron oxide and silver nanoparticles.

2). These accuracy rates are close to those obtained by previous authors. Damm et al. (2005) obtained 64% and 84% for their class of “tree-shrub” and “herbaceous plants”; Mathieu et al. (2007) also obtained 63% and 70% for the class “tree” and 66% and 90% for the class “grass”. In most of the cases in Montreal, the grass surface is well maintained and hence appears on the QuickBird images with a fine texture that is easily identifiable. 33%) which occur where grass and bare soil are interspersed or where grass is masked by the shade of trees and buildings.

2007; Delm and Gulinck 2009). However, LiDAR data are costly and not always available (such is the case of our study area). In the light of this literature review, we attempt to isolate three classes of vegetation from very-high-resolution images –trees, shrubs and grass–, which will be combined with land-use information to map the greenscape in Montreal. Mapping the Greenscape and Environmental Equity in Montreal... 2 Environmental Equity Related to the Vegetation Cover There is increasing evidence that poor neighborhoods characterized by low incomes and the presence of racial or ethnic minorities have less vegetation than wealthier neighborhoods.
