By Songnian Li, Suzana Dragicevic, Bert Veenendaal

Advances in Web-based GIS, Mapping companies and Applications is released as a part of ISPRS WG IV/5 attempt, and goals at featuring (1) contemporary technological developments, e.g., new advancements below internet 2.0, map mashups, neogeography etc; (2) Balanced theoretical discussions and technical implementations; (3) observation at the present levels of improvement; and (4) Prediction of advancements over the following decade. Containing 21 contributions from 60 researchers energetic inside ISPRS groups, so much of them from academia and a few from governments, the ebook covers quite a lot of subject matters regarding the state of the art in internet mapping/GIS and geographic details prone. the amount is geared up in 5 sections:

1. Analytical and Geospatial Services;

2. Performance;

3. Augmentation and LBS;

4. Collaboration and choice Making, and five. Open criteria for Geospatial Services.

Supported via a number of technical information and examples, an total view of the present achievements and growth made within the box of web-based GIS and mapping prone is given. The chapters mirror well timed and destiny advancements addressing: consistent updating of comparable internet and geospatial applied sciences in addition to the revolution of net mapping attributable to mainstream IT owners resembling Google, Yahoo and Microsoft; elevated curiosity from on geo-spatial details applied sciences; and extending call for from most of the people for steered and powerful spatial info providers. Advances in Web-based GIS, Mapping prone and Applications will entice academia and researchers, software experts and builders, practitioners, and undergraduate and graduate scholars drawn to dispensed and web-based geoinformation structures and purposes, geodatabases, and electronic mapping.

Server-side GPS and Assisted-GPS in Java (Artech House Gnss Technologies and Applications)

Assisted GPS (A-GPS) is a expertise that vastly complements GPS functionality and functions. This cutting edge booklet deals an in depth rationalization of how that an A-GPS server operates from a realistic viewpoint. Engineers find out how A-GPS improves severe elements of GPS, similar to time-to-first-fix (TTFF) and yield.
