Structuring an Energy Technology Revolution

The United States is hooked on fossil fuels, and the environmental and geopolitical expenditures are mounting. A federal program—on the size of the ny undertaking or the Apollo Program—to stimulate innovation in power coverage turns out crucial. In Structuring an strength expertise Revolution, Charles Weiss and William Bonvillian make the case for simply this sort of application.

However, in current usage, the distinction between multimedia and hypermedia has faded. Multimedia is commonly used to also describe the combination of distributed media. The purpose of this chapter and this book is to create a stronger linkage between GH and GI Science.

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.

6) that an OHS should provide (Grønbæk and Wiil 1997). These services must be adopted and extended in an Open GHS to meet the special requirements of geographical domains. These extended types of services are described next. 1 Geographic Hypermedia 13 Integration An OHS must be able to integrate (Grønbæk and Wiil 1997): (a) existing services, (b) third party applications and (c) third party stores. Existing services consist of scripts, programs, software agents and hardware devices. In geographical domains, the scripts and programs involve geographic analytical and processing tools; the software agents deal with GI Systems, Mapping and/or Remote Sensing software packages; while the hardware devices involve specific devices for collecting and displaying geographical information, such as GPS receivers, geodetic stations, earth observation systems, digitizers, plotters and projectors.
