Alternative methods have been developed to improve upon the areal weighting technique.
When this problem arises, it is necessary to estimate the data values for the desired set of areal units based on the data values of another set of areal units.
Several methods of disaggregating population data are discussed below: weighted areal interpolation; filtered weighted areal interpolation; the use of land use/land cover as ancillary data for filtering; three-class and limiting variable methods; "image texture" method; statistical approaches, such as regression-based methods; heuristic sampling; kernel density surface using weighted census centroids; the use of other types of ancillary data sets, such as street-weighted interpolation; and the proposed CEDS method.
Dasymetric mapping therefore has a close relationship to areal interpolation--the transformation of data from a set of source zones to a set of target zones with different geometry (Goodchild and Lam 1980).
The areal weighting method is a 2-D polygon overlay method which sums the weighted variable within least common geographic units (LCGUs) of common target zones to derive target zone estimates.
According to IHS iSuppli, areal densities are projected to climb to a maximum 1,800 Gbits per square inch per platter by 2016, up from 744 Gbits per square inch in 2011.
One of the solutions to minimizing the MAUP impact is areal interpolation, which is a spatial interpolation technique used to disaggregate spatial data available at a coarser scale of analysis to a finer scale of analysis (e.
Each image has a number of spatially distinct areal objects, {[a.
Seven "exemplary" studies are then presented as illustration of the state-of-the-art and the volume concludes with examination of the methodological problems concerning areal variation in segmental phonetics and phonology, areal variation in prosody, areal variation in morphology, lexical variation in space, areal variation in syntax, and areal variation and discourse.
Representing the industry's first nanopatterning system specifically designed for patterned media pilot- and volume-manufacturing, the NuTera HD7000 enables sub-20nm lithography at production speeds and provides the low cost of ownership (CoO) that HDD manufacturers require in order to economically extend their areal density roadmaps to well beyond one terabit per square inch.
Areal was a student at a Catholic school as a child, then at an Islamic school for several years, and now she is at a prep school where being Muslim is a distinct oddity.
Perpendicular recording allows hard drive manufacturers to put more bits of data on each square inch of disk space-called areal density or data density--because of magnetic geometry.
According to the company, this areal density is the result of a new tape formulation process known as Advanced Metal Evaporated II (AME II).
Making full use of Toshiba's latest advances in HDD technologies, including the highest areal density yet commercialized, the new HDD delivers 100GB of storage capacity and does so in a drive only 9.
Achievement of higher areal density requires further reduction in the space between the head and the magnetic layer at higher speed.
