# What Is Spatial IQ?

 HOME ยป Health
In "A Framework of Intelligence," Robert Kamp defines spatial
intelligence (or spacial IQ) as relating to "mental rotation,
mirroring, translation, comparing shapes, estimation of angles and
relative distances and searching." In other words, it relates to your
ability to recognize objects and shapes, and see how they relate to
one another. If you can look at pieces of a puzzle and see how they
fit together or look at a Rubik's Cube and determine how to solve it
before you have touched it, you are using spatial IQ. Howard
Gardner's Multiple IntelligencesSpatial IQ is part of Howard Gardner's
theory of multiple intelligences. In 1983, Gardiner speculated that
 What Is a Spatial Reflex? A spatial reflex isn't a single reflex but rather a coordinated set of reflexes. Your spatial sense is your ability to perceive where you are in space. Many of the reflexes in this set are referenced in the saying, "A cat always lands on his feet." It is a commentary on an almost innate ability to understand our environment spatially. BalanceLike spatial reflexes, balance is a set of physiology inputs and responses, some of which are reflexes---in other words, they're done without forethought. It is not as broad a set of reflexes, but many systems are involved. Perhaps the most notable is the role of our inner ear. Three fluid-filled tubes tell us where we are in relationship to the force Sports & Fitness Spatial agent models / spatial emergent behaviour [on hold] I am trying to use R to model grids of agents that change their decisions based on the decisions of other agents in their direct proximity. Basically - each agent looks to the other agents around him on the grid, and might change its behaviour based on the the actions around him. I have included some sample dinky-toy code per below to show (one iteration) of such dynamic.I am wondering whether a) there is an elegant manner to address the boundaries of the grid (currently the t+1, i+1 code does Programming Languages spatial query using C# hi,were getting some odd behaviour using the Oracle Data />Provider for .Net. spatial queries return no data unlessthe indexes on the queried table are rebuilt, the queryreturns data when executed using sql*plus.were coding in C#, the database version is 9.2.is this a bug, has it been reported, and is there anydocumentation on it?are they any on-line resources i could refer to?any help will be appreciated (this is extremely urgent)thankssantosh sewlal Nov 15 05 #1 C & C++ & C# Conversion of MySQL spatial query with intermediate tables to PostGre spatial query Hi All,I have the following query which was based on a working query in MySQL:(dont be afraid of the size of the query you see below, later on I will concentrate on part of this query)SELECT count(*) FROM ((SELECT * FROM tileinfo where julianDay BETWEEN DATE2JDAY((2003-03-01 00:00:00),0) AND DATE2JDAY((2003-03-01 23:59:59 ),0) AND intersects(tile, geomFromText(POLYGON((-10.84 35.8,18.14 35.8,18.14 59.41,-10.84 59.41,-10.84 35.8)),4326))) tic0 LEFT JOIN (tileinfo_meta__2p left join meta__2p on tileinfo_meta__2p.fk_name = meta__2p.pk_name) on tic0.pk_tileinfo = tileinfo_meta__2p.fk_tileinfo ),((SELECT * FROM tileinfo where julianDay BETWEEN Development oracle spatial hi all,Iam new to oracle spatial please suggest me an open source for displaying the .shp files ie spatial data using purely java swing and oracle.please help me out .thanks in advance. Programming Languages Spatial Database Spatial Database Dear friends,Im a student and search about a special issue. I need articles about Spatial Database and its meaning and use. please help me and address me the links or URL.thank you so much. Databases R Create a Spatial Bubble Plot That Overlays A basemap of the US and other spatial layers as needed I'm trying to produce a nice bubble plot overlaid on top of a basemap of the US (i could import a shapefile if that is preferred but i've been using the R basemaps. ``````library(ggplot2,sp,raster,maps,mapdata,maptools,ggmap,rgeos) myData = data.frame(name=c("Florida","Colorado","california","Harvard","Yellowstone"), lat=c(28.1,39,37,42,44.6), long=c(-81.6,-105.5,-120,-71,-110), pop=c(280,156,128,118,202)) `````` Using this code below, that i adapted from another stack overflow post ( href="http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23427479/create-bubble-plot-in-r-using-satellite-map">Create bubble plot in R using satellite map), i am able to overlay a bubble plot on a map of the US. However this renders very slowly, the extent is too tight, it is bounded in a box, i'm not able to add other layers to the plot from what i can tell, and the base map is thick and not visually clean. ``````xy <- myData[,c("long", "lat")] nl <- getData('GADM', country="USA", level=1) #raster data, format SpatialPolygonsDataFrame nl <- gSimiplify(nl, tol=0.01, topologyPreserve=TRUE) # coercing the polygon outlines to a SpatialLines object spl <- list("sp.lines", as(nl, "SpatialLines")) SPDF <- SpatialPointsDataFrame(coords=xy, data=myData) coordinates(myData) <- c("lat", "long") projection(SPDF)<- "+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs +towgs84=0,0,0" coordinates(SPDF)[1:5,] #retrieves spatial coordinates form the dataframe bubble(SPDF, "pop", sp.layout=spl, main="This is It!") `````` I can draw a nice basemap using this code. I add points to the map but they are not sized by the pop column in my data. And i can add additional layers to this map. But can i control the size of the points and the symbol itself like i can using a bubble plot? ``````map(database= "world", ylim=c(45,90), xlim=c(-160,-50), col="grey80", fill=TRUE, projection="gilbert", orientation= c(90,0,225)) coord <- mapproject(myData\$lon, myData\$lat, proj="gilbert",orientation=c(90, 0, 225)) points(coord, pch=20, cex=1.2, col="red") `````` Can anyone please guide me towards the best way to plot a bubble map in R where i can adjust the fill and outline of the symbols in the bubble map, And i can add a clean basemap, that i can a) control the colors of (fill and lines) and b) add additional layers to (for instance another shapefile layer).
