The Polish-Soviet War, particularly the Battle of Warsaw (13–25 August 1920), soon became a subject of legend and myth. Irrespective of its fundamental political significance, the defeat of the Red Army was glorified as salvation for both Poland and Europe in military, ideological and metaphysical terms. Conducted beyond academia, the narrative was forged mainly by veterans, the Catholic Church and various forms of literature and art. Due to government subsidies, documentary and feature films also conveyed a normative notion of these dramatic events and their participants. This article focuses on cinematic works like Dla Ciebie, Polsko [For You, o Poland, PL 1920], and Cud nad Wisłą [The Miracle on the Vistula, PL 1921] produced in order to commemorate the war between the Poles and the Bolsheviks. Taking the iconic turn, this article scrutinises the cinematic self-portrait of the Polish nation that had already been ‘imagined’ as a bulwark of European culture in the East by earlier literary works. Spotlighting protagonists who were given a place in the pantheon of national heroes, it also asks about those who were denigrated or marginalised like women and Jews. Finally, using quantitative methods and Geographical Information System (QGIS) as a tool, the article juxtaposes the maledominated, ethnically and confessional homogeneous ‘imagined nation’ with the film entrepreneurs and actual cinema audiences characterised by their diversity.

Background: Air pollution is one of the most important causes of respiratory diseases that people face in big cities today. Suspended particulates, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide are the five major pollutants of air that pose many problems to human health. We aimed to provide an approach for modeling and analyzing the spatiotemporal model of ozone distribution based on Geographical Information System (GIS). Methods: In the first step, by considering the accuracy of different interpolation methods, the Inverse distance weighted (IDW) method was selected as the best interpolation method for mapping the concentration of ozone in Tehran, Iran. In the next step, according to the daily data of Ozone pollutants, the daily, monthly, and annual mean concentrations maps were prepared for the years 2015, 2016, and 2017. Results: Spatial and temporal analysis of the distribution of ozone pollutants in Tehran was performed. The highest concentrations of O3 are found in the southwest and parts of the central part of the city. Finally, a neural network was developed to predict the amount of ozone pollutants according to meteorological parameters. Conclusion: The results show that meteorological parameters such as temperature, velocity and direction of the wind, and precipitation are influential on O3 concentration.

This study aims to analyse the novel O Arco de Sant'Ana, by Almeida Garrett, one of the most important Portuguese writers of the 19th century. O Arco de Sant'Ana is a historical novel that describes a medieval narrative that is used as a context and emphasis for the presentation of the author's liberal ideas of his time. Using geographical information system as a methodological tool, a literary cartographic analysis will be conducted by identifying places, streets as well as tangible and intangible heritage, described in the novel. Several analyses will be performed to pinpoint the places where the medieval narrative occurs, transposing them to the current urban map. In this way, it should be possible to overlay the literary landscape onto the present map of Porto to offer the tourist a new product based on a journey through time based on the writer's literary work.

The purpose of the article is to present various adverse events that may occur in connection with the loading, unloading and transport of dangerous substances. The focus was on finding the reasons for their formation and an analysis of the quantity and structure of the goods transported was carried out. It also describes the possibility of using the geographical information system, with particular regard to the risk situation during the transport of such substances.

In Malaysia, the Geographical Information System (GIS) is widely used by various organizations in both government and private sectors because of its various capabilities. The rapid development process in the large city in Peninsular Malaysia and new area has caused an increasing number of the sewerage treatment plant (STP) maintained by Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd (IWK) every year. Nowadays, with the big services areas and limited staffs the IWK had faced many issues related to the sewerage such as a public complaint on blockage, overflow and others. Thus, based on the powerful function of this GIS, the IWK also has used the GIS application known as Integrated Geographical Information System (IGIS) in their daily routine works. However, due to the weaknesses of this existing system, it cannot be optimally utilized in managing and maintaining the sewerage system more efficient. The main objective of this research focuses on analyzing user requirements to improve IGIS based on the current issues faced by them. The method used in this study is qualitative method using a face-to-face interview with IGIS users in getting any feedback from them on the existing data with an examining what is the main attribute data required. Then a content analysis was used to analyze it by updating all the data required and removing unnecessary data from the IGIS. As a result, the newly updated attribute data into IGIS will help the users to conduct proper planning in controlling the increasing number of STP every year and to manage the sewerage system more efficiently.
