Pattern browsing and query adjustment for the exploratory analysis and cooperative visualisation of microarray time-course data. (2010)
Conference Proceeding
Craig, P., Cannon, A., Kennedy, J., & Kukla, R. (2010). Pattern browsing and query adjustment for the exploratory analysis and cooperative visualisation of microarray time-course data. In Y. Luo (Ed.), Cooperative Design, Visualization, and Engineering (199-206). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-16066-0_30

This paper presents work to support collaborative visualisation and data analysis in the microarray time-series explorer (MaTSE) software. We introduce a novel visualisation component called the ‘pattern browser’ which is used to support the annotati...

A new data, document and geospatial repository: knowledge base and project support for a major international railway project. (2008)
Presentation / Conference
Wigan, M., Kukla, R., Benjamins, M., & Grashoff, P. (2008, April). A new data, document and geospatial repository: knowledge base and project support for a major international railway project. Poster presented at Third International Conference on Open Repositories

The simplicity of the basic design has proved to be robust to the changing and varied needs of different ?clients?, but the complexity of the intellectual property issues engendered by the mix of commercial, open source and hand rolled software has p...

RKB: A Knowledge base to support research documentation, data, GIS, spatial data and communications for a major rail freight project. (2007)
Conference Proceeding
Wigan, M., Kukla, R., Benjamins, M., & Grashoff, P. (2007). RKB: A Knowledge base to support research documentation, data, GIS, spatial data and communications for a major rail freight project. In Proceedings of the European Transport Conference 2007

The paper places data and document access, use and exploration systems in the context of the Data Observatories movement, as well as the document repository systems now becoming mandated for universities. It will show how taking these developments in...

A software framework for the microscopic modelling of pedestrian movement (2007)
Thesis
Kukla, R. (2007). A software framework for the microscopic modelling of pedestrian movement. (Thesis). Edinburgh Napier University. Retrieved from http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/id/eprint/3927

A town planner, faced with the task of designing attractive walking spaces, needs a tool that will allow different designs to be compared in terms of their attractiveness as well as their effectiveness. PEDFLOW is an attempt to create such a tool. It... Read More about A software framework for the microscopic modelling of pedestrian movement.

Converting an existing taxonomic data resource to employ an ontology and LSIDs. (2006)
Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Gales, R., & Kukla, R. (2006). Converting an existing taxonomic data resource to employ an ontology and LSIDs. In L. Belbin, A. Rissoné, & A. Weitzman (Eds.), Proceedings of TDWG (2006), St Louis, MI

Data sharing is fundamental to biodiversity and taxonomic data applications, however previous attempts at developing mechanisms to facilitate sharing within the community have had limited effect. Reasons for this include the lack of take up of data e... Read More about Converting an existing taxonomic data resource to employ an ontology and LSIDs..

Developing a core ontology for taxonomic data. (2006)
Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Gales, R., Hyam, R., Kukla, R., Wieczorek, J., Hagedorn, G., …Vieglais, D. (2006). Developing a core ontology for taxonomic data. In L. Belbin, A. Rissoné, & A. Weitzman (Eds.), Proceedings of TDWG (2006), St Louis, MI

Over recent years several sub-groups within the Taxonomic Databases Working Group (TDWG) have developed models and exchange standards to facilitate data sharing within the taxonomic community. These include ABCD, SDD, DwC, TCS and Spatial Data Standa... Read More about Developing a core ontology for taxonomic data..

A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. (2006)
Journal Article
Kennedy, J., Hyam, R., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2006). A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. OMICS, 10, 220-230. https://doi.org/10.1089/omi.2006.10.220

The names used by biologists to label the observations they make are imprecise. This is an issue as workers increasingly seek to exploit data gathered from multiple, unrelated sources on line. Even when the international codes of nomenclature are fol... Read More about A standard data model representation for taxonomic information..
