Abstract

The analysis and optimization of transportation
routes of calves to slaughterhouses by means of a GIS
(geographical information system) route planning
and time limitation software for the fl eet management
in transportation industry was performed. As
basic data the farms (last locations of the calves) and
the slaughterhouses were available in each case with
addresses and coordinates. 150 data records from 258
veal calves could be evaluated. None of the calves was
transported longer than 6 hours. Therefore, in all cases
the Swiss law for animal protection was obeyed concerning
maximum length of transportation time. In
the road model, 82% of calves were transported too
far.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
