This approach was a serious try to improve the education and E-learning and it indeed had a dramatic effect as it worked to promote the general well-being of learners in Iraq. This paper investigates and presents a comparison between the E-learning applications during BLA (in term of their features, flexibility, ease of use, advantages and disadvantages, and privacy and security). The outcome of the study was relied on a questionnaire made in various Iraqi universities. A total of 100 people participated in the questionnaire, divided into two groups: students and lecturers. The results showed that most lecturers and students prefer Google Meet. Google classroom and Zoom were the second popular applications whereas Microsoft Teams was the least choice for both groups.</p> Sara Raad Qasim , Eman Hassony Jaddou Copyright (c) 2022 Journal Port Science Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://jport.co/index.php/jport/article/view/116 Sat, 15 Oct 2022 00:00:00 +0300 PRODUCING DIGITAL MAPS FOR THE DISTRIBUTION OF MINERALS IN IRAQ USING GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (GIS) https://jport.co/index.php/jport/article/view/121 <p>Considering the huge amount of information, it becomes so difficult to deal with and understand only in condition they were organized, classified and saved as data base that can be deal with automatically and to make use of it without interfering with its meaning and significance. Here comes the need to invent new methods and systems to save such information and deal with. An example of such systems is Management Information System and Geographic Information System. The ability of geographic information systems to prepare the geographic database and represent it as digital maps is verified by processing mineral data. This research aims to produce digital maps of mineral materials in Iraq by converting a paper map (geological map) at a scale (1:1000000) into a digital map using the survey process and modifying the coordinate system for this map using the georeferencing process. Then the layers are extracted from this map using the digitization process, and these layers are represented, and the proportion of these materials on these layers is represented as a circular sector. The purpose of a geodatabase is to create features in GIS datasets and to determine the relationship between features that are shown on maps as layers, where each layer represents a specific type of feature that was used for spatial analysis.</p> Ayad A.

The 0-1 tests, the Lyapunov Exponent (LE) tests, and the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) tests, which are typically used to verify the randomness of bits, are employed to evaluate the dynamic behavior of the system based on a variety of criteria. Based on the results of tests demonstrating the system's characteristic chaotic and random behavior, it is reliable for use in covert communications and image encryption.</p> Ali Akram Abdul-Kareem, Waleed Ameen Mahmoud Al-Jawher Copyright (c) 2022 Journal Port Science Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://jport.co/index.php/jport/article/view/117 Sun, 23 Oct 2022 00:00:00 +0300 E-LEARNING AND MANAGING ITS CRISIS UNDER COVID-19 FOR THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD https://jport.co/index.php/jport/article/view/122 <p>The study aimed to review the experiences of others in e-learning from different universities in Iraq and countries around the world about facing the Covid-19 and how to face the crisis in the educational field and come up with positive outcomes to advance the educational reality. The researchers used an electronic questionnaire (Google Form) to collect information from (152) male and female students, the questionnaire included (15) questions about e-learning, and the positive answers supported the success of e-learning in getting out of the Covid-19 crisis with satisfactory positive results.</p> Sahar Abbas Ibrahim, Hussein Hamed Khudair, Hamed Khudair Kazem Copyright (c) 2022 Journal Port Science Research https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0 https://jport.co/index.php/jport/article/view/122 Sat, 10 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0300 FORENSIC BIOMETRICS IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM FOR DNA PROFILE HUMAN BASED ON ASSOCIATION RULES https://jport.co/index.php/jport/article/view/119 <p>It should be noted that there is a joint work between biomedicine such as forensic medicine and information technology through the use of information technology technologies in all fields, including determining the of DNA profile. One of the leading biotechnologies in this field is data mining techniques. There are many ways to identify disaster victims, such as fingerprints, dental record and DNA profile matching. DNA matching is a highly accurate identification way that does not need specific parts of the victim's body. Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid (DNA) is the basic elements that make up an entire section of a human. The core elements store unique information for each individual and will be passed on through generations. DNA also helps in identifying the father in paternity testing,. The limitation of applying DNA matching for disaster victim identification lies on expensive and time consuming process. To address this situation, in this paper, we performed a method to measure the confidence of matching of human DNA profiles identification using Association Rule Classification System is proposed. In this Classification system, DNA profile data is used as an input that stores human identity along with its DNA profile. advisable information or good patterns from present datasets for certain objective. The results were satisfactory and characterized by large percentage and high accuracy. Finally, performance of this system is evaluated and in turns the proposed system proves its capability in forensic human identification and scalability to handle huge amounts of data.</p> Najah H.
