  • Visual discrimination and object/picture recognition in hens

    Railton, Renee Caron Richards (University of Waikato, 2011)
    Eight experiments were conducted to examine different aspects of hen’s visual behaviour, and to assess whether hens responded to photographs in the same way they do to the real objects that were depicted in the photographs. ...
  • Visual estimation of the direction of complex moving patterns by domestic chickens (Gallus gallus): A behavioural analytical approach

    Bright, John Grady (University of Waikato, 2016)
    Humans and nonhuman primates are able to combine ambiguous directions of movement in a scene into a global motion percept and are able to solve the problem of estimating motion direction. There is extensive research on ...
  • Visual Perception and Analysis of an Approaching Train at Railway Level Crossings in New Zealand

    Clark, Helen Elizabeth (University of Waikato, 2010)
    The prevalence of railway level crossing accidents in New Zealand is a high profile issue that has warranted close scrutiny over the last 10 years. However, the incident rate has not decreased. This research examined the ...
  • Visual Perception of a Motion Aftereffect in Domestic Chickens (Gallus gallus): A Behavioural Analytic Approach

    Wan, Jennifer (University of Waikato, 2016)
    The motion aftereffect (MAE) is an illusory motion in the opposite direction after the sudden halt of a prolonged moving visual stimulus. The human experience of the motion aftereffect has been extensively researched ...
  • Visual perturbances in digital pedagogical media

    Calder, Nigel Stuart (MERGA Inc., 2007)
    Several studies have investigated how the formation of informal conjectures, and the dialogue they evoke, might influence young children’s learning trajectories, and enhance their mathematical thinking. In a digital ...
  • Visual recovery of desert pavement surfaces following impacts from vehicle and foot traffic in the Ross Sea region of Antarctica

    O'Neill, Tanya Ann; Balks, Megan R.; López-Martínez, Jerónimo (Cambridge University Press, 2013)
    Sites of past human activity were investigated to assess the visual recovery of the desert pavement following impacts from human trampling and vehicle traffic. Visually disturbed and nearby control sites were assessed using ...
  • Visual semantic enrichment for ereading

    Coleman, Michael; Hinze, Annika (BISL, 2017)
    The current transition from physical to electronic books opens up opportunities to present semantic information about a book’s content. This paper reports on a project that aims to improve the eBook reading experience by ...
  • Visualisation of Parallel Data Streams with Temporal Mosaics

    Luz, Saturnino; Masoodian, Masood (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Despite its popularity and widespread use, timeline visualisation suffers from shortcomings which limit its use for displaying multiple data streams when the number of streams increases to more than a handful. This paper ...
  • Visualisation of semantic enrichment

    Schlegel, Alexa; Hesse, Ralf; Hinze, Annika (Gesellschaft für Informatik, 2012)
    Automatically creating semantic enrichments for text may lead to annotations that allow for excellent recall but poor precision. Manual enrichment is potentially more targeted, leading to greater precision. We aim to support ...
  • Visualising and communicating population diversity through web maps

    Brabyn, Lars; Jackson, Natalie; Stichbury, Glen; McHardie, Tristan James (Population Association of New Zealand, 2019)
    An online New Zealand Atlas of Population Change (NZAPC) is being developed (http://socialatlas.waikato.ac.nz/) to communicate the interaction and associated diversity resulting from three important components of population ...
  • Visualising present and past: a meter with a flexible pointer

    Monigatti, Paul; Apperley, Mark; Rogers, Bill (ACM, 2011)
    Meters and gauges based on analogue pointers provide a convenient way to visualise single dimensional data streams, such as speed, voltage, altitude, or fuel level. However, often a small amount of historical information ...
  • Visualising Time

    Clarke, Greg (University of Waikato, 2013)
    This study investigates the visualisation of temporal relationships between objects. A popular method employed for such information visualisations is the time line consisting of a single horizontal axis along which temporal ...
  • Visualization of physical library shelves to facilitate collection management and retrieval

    Jervis, Matthew Geoffrey; Masoodian, Masood (ACM, 2013)
    Electronic cataloguing systems are used by libraries to provide search mechanisms for finding books in their collections. These systems provide limited, if any, tools for browsing content electronically in a manner similar ...
  • Visualize online collocation dictionary with force-directed graph

    Pham, Bob (University of Waikato, 2012)
    For second-language learners, collocational knowledge is very important. Knowing collocational phrases allows learners to speak and write in their targeted language naturally and reduce dramatically side effect of their ...
  • Visualizing a control strategy for estimating electricity consumption

    Ozoh, Patrick; Abd-Rahman, Shapiee; Labadin, Jane; Apperley, Mark (Department of Computer Science, The University of Waikato, 2014)
    This paper investigates the potential of applying different control measures on low power and high power appliances with the goal of evolving efficiency in electricity consumption. The research involves carrying out ...
  • Visualizing class probability estimators

    Frank, Eibe; Hall, Mark A. (University of Waikato, Department of Computer Science, 2003-02-19)
    Inducing classifiers that make accurate predictions on future data is a driving force for research in inductive learning. However, also of importance to the users is how to gain information from the models produced. ...
  • Visualizing homelessness: a study in photography and estrangement

    Radley, Alan; Hodgetts, Darrin; Cullen, Andrea (John Wiley and Sons, Ltd, 2005)
    This article reports a qualitative study of how homeless people visualize their life in hostels and on the streets of London. Using a photo-production technique, the research enabled participants to show their situation ...
