GPS and Inertial Systems Technology: A Winning Combination from Trimble
SiRF Technology, Inc. announced that its location solutions are at the heart of the new LinksPoint GlobalPoint GPS(TM), a global positioning system (GPS) receiver for use with Symbol Technologies' ruggedized handheld computers. GlobalPoint GPS is a second-generation handheld technology with a number of new features and enhancements to its widely acclaimed initial version. That version has been used for high-profile, mission-critical applications such as recovery efforts by the New York Fire Department at "Ground Zero," by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for field bio-terrorism investigations, and by utilities and enterprises worldwide for data collection and field force tracking.
GISCafe has many popular Downloads in various categories. Visitors are encouraged to go to the site and add new downloads or update their old ones.
Locator Application Demos Using SpatialFX and the company's new Web Application Framework they have constructed three fictional "customer web sites" that make use of location services. These demos are comprised of JSP's with HTML and image maps. And example: Pedal Path Tours A fictitious bike touring company in Colorado. The demo shows the store location and allows users to route themselves to the store.

The Truth about XML The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is sometimes pitched as a better and less expensive way to trade e-commerce information than the stalwart electronic data interchange (EDI).

The development of effective methodologies for the analysis of multitemporal data is one of the most important and challenging issues that the remote-sensing community should face in the next years. The importance and the timeliness of this issue are directly related to the ever increasing quantity of multi-temporal data provided by the numerous remote-sensing satellites that orbit around our planet. For this reason, the Second International Workshop on the Analysis of Multi-Temporal Remote Sensing Images (MultiTemp-2003) will be organized. Like MultiTemp-2001, it will be a high quality workshop, focusing on the methodological aspects of multi-temporal remote-sensing image analysis and on their applications.
