AbstractThe Aculeo lagoon basin has been declared an emergency drought place, limiting water usage strictly for domestic use. Chile's laws impose economic sanctions on individuals who use water resources to irrigate grass in these places. This project evaluates the healthy lawn condition in a specific dry season (period without rain events) to identify the areas that have potentially been using the water resource illegally by using multi-spectral and multitemporal free satellite data at the Aculeo lagoon basin. We derive different soil indices, the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI), Green Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (GNDVI), Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (SAVI), Normalized Difference Moisture Index (NDMI), Moisture Stress Index (MSI), and Bare Soil Index (BSI) during October 2021 to April 2022. Also, we perform a cluster analysis to evaluate the statistical distribution of healthy vegetation cover. All the results are available in an ArcGIS interactive web map. This research proves some properties have probably used water to irrigate lawns because their health has maintained or increased over time. Thus, we estimate the lawn areas in the basin and their water consumption to illustrate how much water has been used illegally. In addition, the cluster analysis demonstrates a consistent pattern of healthy vegetation covers, concluding that these groupings are unusual compared to the entire basin. We present tools and protocols to be used in areas of water scarcity to identify locations that use the water resource illegally, helping governmental authorities to accomplish personal inspections and impose legal sanctions.

Mapping Interdisciplinarity at the Interfaces between the Science Citation Index and the Social Science Citation IndexLeydesdorff, Loet (2006)The two Journal Citation Reports of the Science Citation Index 2004 and the Social Science Citation Index 2004 were combined in order to analyze and map journals and specialties at the edges and in the overlap between the two databases. For journals which belong to the overlap (e.g., Scientometrics), the merger mainly enriches our insight into the structure which can be obtained from the two databases separately; but in the case of scientific journals which are more marginal in either database, the combination can provide a new perspective on the position and function of these journals (e.g., Environment and Planning Bâ Planning and Design). The combined database additionally enables us to map citation environments in terms of the various specialties comprehensively. Using the vector-space model, visualizations are provided for specialties that are parts of the overlap (information science, science & technology studies). On the basis of the resulting visualizations, â betweennessâ â a measure from social network analysisâ is suggested as an indicator for measuring the interdisciplinarity of journals. This paper is forthcoming in Scientometrics.
NCBI's Virus Discovery Codeathon: Building "FIVE" -The Federated Index of Viral Experiments API IndexMartí-Carreras, J.; Gener, A.R.; Miller, S.D.; Brito, A.F.; Camacho, C.E.; Connor, R.; Deboutte, W.; Glickman, C.; Kristensen, D.M.; Meyer, W.K.; et al. (NLM (Medline), 2020)Viruses represent important test cases for data federation due to their genome size and the rapid increase in sequence data in publicly available databases. However, some consequences of previously decentralized (unfederated) data are lack of consensus or comparisons between feature annotations. Unifying or displaying alternative annotations should be a priority both for communities with robust entry representation and for nascent communities with burgeoning data sources. To this end, during this three-day continuation of the Virus Hunting Toolkit codeathon series (VHT-2), a new integrated and federated viral index was elaborated. This Federated Index of Viral Experiments (FIVE) integrates pre-existing and novel functional and taxonomy annotations and virus-host pairings. Variability in the context of viral genomic diversity is often overlooked in virus databases. As a proof-of-concept, FIVE was the first attempt to include viral genome variation for HIV, the most well-studied human pathogen, through viral genome diversity graphs. As per the publication of this manuscript, FIVE is the first implementation of a virus-specific federated index of such scope. FIVE is coded in BigQuery for optimal access of large quantities of data and is publicly accessible. Many projects of database or index federation fail to provide easier alternatives to access or query information. To this end, a Python API query system was developed to enhance the accessibility of FIVE.
Diachronic and Synchronic Indexing: Modeling Conceptual Change in Indexing LanguagesTennis, Joseph T.; Arsenault, Clément; Dalkir, Kimiz (CAIS/ACSI, 2007)This paper outlines a model of conceptual change in indexing languages. Findings from this modeling effort point to three ways meaning and relationships are established and then change in an indexing language. These ways: structural, terminological, and textual point to ways indexing language metadata can aid in managing conceptual change in indexing languages. Résumé : Cette communication esquisse un modèle du changement conceptuel des langages d’indexation. Les résultats de cette tentative de modélisation convergent vers une triple dimension. Les relations sont établies, puis modifiées dans un langage d’indexation. Ces dimensions, structurelle, terminologique et textuelle, indiquent de quelle manière les langages de métadonnées peuvent contribuer à la gestion du changement conceptuel des langages d’indexation.
