This booklet introduces a brand new paradigm, Geographic Hypermedia, which emerges from the convergence of Geographic info technology and - permedia expertise. either GI technological know-how and hypermedia were swiftly evolving fields. The preliminary proposal of Geographic Hypermedia was once born in 2004 whilst the editors have been invited to prepare a workshop in conju- tion with the ‘Hypertext’ convention geared up every year by means of the specific - terest crew of the organization for Computing equipment. the aim of the workshop used to be to envision how hypermedia options and instruments can be utilized in geographical domain names. The workshop was once finally held along side the Maps and the web fee of the foreign Cartographic organization on the annual assembly of the organization of yankee Geographers in Denver, Colorado, in April 2005. The Denver workshop used to be a winning occasion, bringing jointly mul- disciplinary researchers and execs within the quarter of Geographic - permedia. Researchers from 4 continents and good famous insti- tions provided their paintings and exchanged reviews concerning the new pa- digm, its content material and particular features from different paradigms. prolonged types of the papers provided on the workshop in addition to a few invited chapters from specialists within the box resulted in the compendium of the twenty-five chapters during this booklet quantity. Geographic Hypermedia isn't really but a mature paradigm yet we aspire to supply the clinical group with a modern view of Geographic Hypermedia, current an outline of its development and present prestige, whereas additionally selling extra dialogue and research.

Superlattices and Other Heterostructures: Symmetry and Optical Phenomena

Superlattices and different Heterostructures bargains with the optical homes of superlattices and quantum good constructions with emphasis on phenomena ruled by means of crystal symmetries. After a short advent to staff concept and symmetries, equipment for calculating spectra of electrons, excitons, and phonons in heterostructures are mentioned.

The rapid development of the Internet has changed dramatically the collection and processing of geographic information. The Internet is already the most widely used system for the dissemination of information and services. As a consequence, it affects GIScience technology in at least three aspects (Peng and Tsou 2003): (a) the accessibility to data and information, (b) the dissemination of geographic information, and (c) the modeling and analysis of geographic information. This situation forces a dramatic change on the architecture of systems used for the management and handling of geographic information.

To Ota (2004) “the definition of ubiquitous mapping is that people can access any map at (sic) anywhere and anytime through the information network” (pp. 167). A prominent field of application in the context of ubiquitous cartography is the support of orientation and navigation functions. Within the last few years a lot of research and development has taken place concerning Location Based Services, which could now be supplemented and expanded with the help of ubiquitous methods, and maybe in the future they could 34 William Cartwright, Michael Peterson, and Georg Gartner even be replaced.

2 New Media: From Discrete, to Distributed, to Mobile, to Ubiquitous 31 When “Wireless application protocol” (WAP) started some years ago it was for the first time ever that mobile devices had restricted access to the Internet and content that was prepared especially for the use on mobile clients with small displays. Although it does not allow the provision of graphics other than in a very basic presentation, it has been used for first attempts. With 3rd generation technology UMTS it is possible to give continuous access to most of the internet sites, graphical presentations included.
