Locate your place in the exciting field of GISIn existence since 1962, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are really coming into their own today. And not just in your car’s GPS system or your cell phone’s tracking capabilities. GIS is finding applications throughout science, government, business, and industry, from regional and community planning, architecture, and transportation to public health, crime mapping, and national defense.Michael DeMers’s Fundamentals of Geographic Information, Fourth Edition brings an already essential text up to date, capturing the significant developments in the field and responding to the needs of a diverse set of readers, from geographers to students in a host of other fields.If you are a non-geographer or new to GIS, get a quick introduction to the ?lay of the land? of GIS through the new ?Spatial Learner’s Permit? section. Then join in the excitement of discovery with GIS databases as you absorb the such concepts and skills as digital geographic data and maps, GIS data models, spatial analysis, measurement and classification, cartographic modeling, and GIS design.Responding to both the needs and technical skills of today’s students, this Fourth Edition:Makes concepts accessible to students from a wide range of backgroundsOffers more practical and relevant coverage of GIS design and implementationReflects the latest changes in GIS applicationsExamines in greater depth the underlying computer science behind GISUncovers the most recent developments on GIS researchExpands coverage of the increasingly robust literature on cartographic visualizationIncludes Web-based labs and links to current and updated dataset resourcesTaking an open-ended, hands-on approach that gets you to ask your own questions about the underlying concepts, the Fourth Edition helps you not only master the basics but acquire the active problem-solving skills that are a key component of success in the GIS industry.

A practical guide to the specification, design, and programming of smart card systems for working applications. More than 3 billion smartcards are produced every year. Generally defined as any pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits or chips, they have a huge number of applications including travel cards, chip and pin cards, pet tags, mobile phone SIMs and pallet trackers. Now with modern Smart Card technology such as Java Card and Basic Card it is possible for everyone to create his or her own applications on a smart card. This book provides generic solutions for programming smart cards, enabling the creation of working applications and systems. Key features: Presents a comprehensive introduction to the topic of smart cards, explaining component elements and the smart card microcontrollers. Sets out information on operating systems with case studies of a range of applications including credit card security, mobile phones and transport payment cards. Gives detailed advice on the monitoring of smart card applications, recognizing potential attacks on security and improving system integrity. Provides modules and examples so that all types of systems can be built up from a small number of individual components. Offers guidelines on avoiding and overcoming design errors. Ideal for practising engineers and designers looking to implement smart cards in their business, it is also a valuable reference for postgraduate students taking courses on embedded system and smart card design.
Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, slipcased.When this series was first broadcast on National Public Radio in 1981, it generated the largest response in the network’s history: 50000 letters and phone calls in a single week, an audience of 750000 per episode, and a subsequent 40-percent jump in NPR listenership.This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to NPR an affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film’s highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development. Director John Madden guided a splendid cast–including Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels, reprising their film roles as Luke Skywalker and the persnickety robot See Threepio–through an intense 10 day dialogue recording session. Then came months of painstaking work for virtuoso sound engineer Tom Voegeli, whose brilliant blending of the actors’ voices, the music, and hundreds of sound effects takes this intergalactic adventure into a realm of imagination that is beyond the reach of cinema.
