Model and solutions to campus parking space allocation problem.
Parking is considered a major land use challenge in campus planning. The problem can be in terms of scarcity (few available spaces compared to demand) or management (ineffi cient usage of available facilities). Many ...
Settlement type classification using aerial images.
In metropolitan and urban areas, the problems relating to rapid transformations that are taking place in terms of land cover and land use are now very pronounced, e.g., the rapid increase and unpredictable spread of ...
Formalisms for agents reasoning with stochastic actions and perceptions.
The thesis reports on the development of a sequence of logics (formal languages based on mathematical logic) to deal with a class of uncertainty that agents may encounter. More accurately, the logics are meant to be used ...

Studies of heuristics for hostel space allocation problem.
This research work focused on the performance of heuristics and metaheuristics for the recently defined Hostel Space Allocation Problem (HSAP), a new instance of the space allocation problem (SAP) in higher institutions ...
Studies in heuristics for the annual crop planning problem.
Increase in the costs associated with agricultural production and the limited availability of resources have amplified the need for optimized solutions to the problem of crop planning. The increased costs have imparted ...
Foundational ontology interchangeability with the Repository of Ontologies for MULltiple USes (ROMULUS).
The notion behind foundational ontologies is to have a single foundational ontology to serve as a basis for providing high-level entities and relations that are common between all ontologies in or- der to facilitate ...

Face recognition with Eigenfaces : a detailed study.
With human society becoming increasingly computerised, the use of biometrics to automatically establish the identity of an individual is of great interest in a wide variety of applications. Facial appearance is an appealing ...
Gabor filter parameter optimization for multi-textured images : a case study on water body extraction from satellite imagery.
The analysis and identification of texture is a key area in image processing and computer vision. One of the most prominent texture analysis algorithms is the Gabor Filter. These filters are used by convolving an image ...
