Abstract

Computer-based systems for processing environmental information have been in use for more than three decades now. A broad range of applications is covered by these systems, including monitoring and control, information management, data analysis, as well as planning and decision support. Progress in informatics has made an invaluablecontribution to our ability to analyse the biological, chemical and physical processes taking place in the environment. Inversely, the complex nature of problems occurring in environmental contexts is a great challenge to informatics. From this process of mutual stimulation, a special discipline has emerged known as Environmental Informatics. It combines computer science topics such as database systems, geographic information systems and simulation modelling with respect to their application to environmental research and protection.

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.
