Dual network embedding for representing research interests in the link prediction problem on co-authorship networks
Diego Amancio –– The link prediction problem is an important problem in Science of Science.
Forest floor temperature and greenness link significantly to canopy attributes in South Africa’s fragmented coastal forests
Leonardo Montagnani –– I believe that besides the difficulties encountered in the specific location, the paper is well done and methodologically relevant. I would recommend its approach to a wide range of scientific sectors related to the physical interaction between plants, animals and possibly humans.
An index of non-sampling error in area frame sampling based on remote sensing data
Bo Huang –– This is an interesting work, which may be of value to a wide range of applications.
Modelling the dynamics of a large rock landslide in the Dolomites (eastern Italian Alps) using multi-temporal DEMs
Lei Wang –– The use of multi-time LiDAR with a GIS for landslide model calibration is interesting
Does Twitter language reliably predict heart disease? A commentary on Eichstaedt et al. (2015a)
Tjeerd Boonstra –– The article re-examines the results of an influential paper and challenges the idea that social media data analysed on a county-level may provide a reliable predictor of health outcomes. The authors raise several questions on the reliability of data and study design that need to be addressed for this field going forward.
Random forest as a generic framework for predictive modeling of spatial and spatio-temporal variables
Tal Svoray –– Comparison between machine learning tools and geostatistics are in the front of geosciences
Effects of mesoscale eddies on behavior of an oil spill resulting from an accidental deepwater blowout in the Black Sea: an assessment of the environmental impacts
Andrea Cucco –– The deep oil spill is still an open issue in operational oceanography and this job can be considered a further step forward in understanding this phenomenon.
Perceived user preferences and usability evaluation of mainstream wearable devices for health monitoring
Jie Liu –– Health care
Reproducible research and GIScience: an evaluation using AGILE conference papers
Nicolas Rougier –– An important study about reproducibility in GIS whose methods could be re-used in other domains.
Nitrous oxide variability at sub-kilometre resolution in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean
I. Emma Huertas –– The new dataset provided in an under explored region
