Ecuadorian Science Journal https://journals.gdeon.org/index.php/esj <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Ecuadorian Science&nbsp;Journal</em>&nbsp;is a biannual scientific publication. It is aimed at the academic community, researchers, graduates, productive sectors and, in general, the interested public. Its main objective is to disseminate and discuss advances in research and development in the different areas of engineering, education, administration and health through the publication of original and unpublished articles, with local or international relevance. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">GDEON Editorial<br><strong>E-ISSN:</strong> 2602-8077</p> GDEON Editorial en-US Ecuadorian Science Journal 2602-8077 <p style="text-align: justify;">Authors maintain the rights to the articles and are therefore free to share, copy, distribute, execute, and publicly communicate the work&nbsp;on their personal websites or in institutional deposits, after its publication in this journal, as long as they provide bibliographic information that certifies its publication in this journal.</p> <p><a href="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/" target="_blank" rel="license noopener"><img style="border-width: 0;" src="https://i.creativecommons.org/l/by-nc-nd/4.0/88x31.png" alt="Licencia de Creative Commons"></a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The works are under one <a href="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/</a></p> Use of ICTs in notaries of the city of Guayaquil in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic https://journals.gdeon.org/index.php/esj/article/view/128 <p>The objective of this research article is to analyze the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and its incidence in the provision of services in the notaries of the city of Guayaquil in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic in order to know the reality of the use of technological tools in labor processes. This research is apply, because it determines the effects of ICT in the notaries of the city of Guayaquil in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and the focus of the research was mixed, with the theoretical foundations as antecedents for the qualitative part and the application of the survey for field research. The population analyzed were the notaries of Guayaquil that give a number of 80, while the sample determined by the finite population formula with 95% confidence and 5% margin of error, gives a value of 67 to those who are used the survey. The results determined that several changes arose after the pandemic, such as a greater use of technological resources, but that in turn restrictions limit customer service and that the Sanyr system is not yet use in greater quantities for the benefit of customers. One of the main conclusions of the research was that it is necessary for staff to be trained in the use of ICT to complement and streamline processes in notaries</p> Karen Annabell Cedeño Jurado Guillermo Omar Pizarro Vásquez Copyright (c) 2022 Karen Annabell Cedeño Jurado, Guillermo Omar Pizarro Vásquez https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-09-30 2022-09-30 6 2 1 16 10.46480/esj.6.2.128 Influence of meteorological variables on the transmission of COVID-19 in Guayas and Pichincha https://journals.gdeon.org/index.php/esj/article/view/185 <p>Ecuador, at the beginning of April 2020 suffered the sudden attack from the virus SARS-CoV-2, becoming the focus of the disease in the country and reaching one of the highest mortality rates in South America. Regarding the COVID-19 disease, daily data from official national sources were consolidated about the total number of deaths, probable and confirmed deaths as well as confirmed cases of COVID-19, data collected in the period from March 26 of 2020 to July 7 of 2021. Here we show that the main parameters are the number of people infected with COVID-19, total deaths, temperature, relative humidity, and cloudiness, once these parameters were analyzed they were allowed to understand how they can affect or influence the spread of the virus and mortality in Guayas and Pichincha caused by COVID-19.&nbsp;</p> Javier Del Cioppo Morstadt Maritza Aguirre-Munizaga Copyright (c) 2023 MARITZA AGUIRRE https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-09-30 2022-09-30 6 2 17 25 10.46480/esj.6.2.185 Internal control and the importance in the administrative step in the company San Miguel Chade, Manabí-Ecuador https://journals.gdeon.org/index.php/esj/article/view/191 <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The corruptions and converged frauds in the organizations, in the last years, have induced according to custom of the internal control as a tool of administrative step. At present work it pursues as main objective, evaluating the importance that coats the internal control in the administrative step in the saint company Miguel Chade, Manabí-Ecuador.&nbsp; about the matter and to know on importance happiness it follows a qualitative focusing, with descriptive reach of retrospective type and design not experimental of cross section, for the one which is been clear with a population of 110 participants of those which were selected in an intentional way and that it is considered as sample of study to 86 peoples. They interviewed 3 of the administrative personnel, and they surveyed 33 partners.&nbsp; applied interview, hug the coast and the observation is carried out to driver and users, in which it is verified that in the company of study, exist implemented a system of internal control contextualized, although if exist normative to follow of internal control, that do possible that the company keeps your standard of quality of organizational step.&nbsp; Also verified that the level of preparation of the directives and the knowledge on the law's norms with focusing on administrative steps is scarce. </span></p> Sara Geoconda Soledispa Reyes María Cristina Zavala Sánchez Copyright (c) 2023 Sara Geoconda Soledispa Reyes, María Cristina Zavala Sánchez https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-09-30 2022-09-30 6 2 26 32 10.46480/esj.6.2.191 Evaluation of a data flow clustering algorithm for GPS trajectory analysis https://journals.gdeon.org/index.php/esj/article/view/99 <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The large volume of data generated today by various GPS devices makes the analysis of this data a field of current research interest. Clustering algorithms identify patterns in a massive set of data. In the field of transportation, in the case of vehicles circulating through the streets of a city, these algorithms help to identify congestion, common traffic flows, frequent events such as vehicle stops, among others. A GPS trajectory is defined by a set of geographic locations, each of which is represented by its latitude and longitude at an instant in time. There are vehicular GPS trajectories that are nowadays generated by intelligent transportation systems in cities. This work evaluates a data flow clustering algorithm called Dyclee in the processing and analysis of two data sets from the cities of Guayaquil-Ecuador and Rome-Italy. The results obtained from the evaluation of the two data sets using Dyclee allow the identification of vehicular patterns that occur at different time instants, being able to show common speed ranges. In addition, measurements are made to determine the quality of the resulting groups, the results obtained are satisfactory.</span></p> Gary Reyes Zambrano Edisson Steeven Zambrano Meza Oscar León-Granizo Christopher Crespo León Copyright (c) 2023 Gary Reyes Zambrano, Edisson Steeven Zambrano Meza, Oscar León-Granizo, Christopher Crespo León https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2022-09-30 2022-09-30 6 2 33 45 10.46480/esj.6.2.99
