Gravity Data Decides Height Reference Dilemma

For decades, scientists have disagreed about whether the sea is higher or lower heading north along the east coast of North America. Gravity data from ESA’s GOCE satellite contributed to settling this controversial issue. The conclusion: it is lower.   Winds, currents, tides and different temperatures cause seawater to pile up in some regions and dip in others. However, it is difficult to determine relative heights of the sea, especially near the coast. To do this, tide gauge measurements need to be compared with a ‘level’ surface. Carrying surveying instruments The old method of making these calculations involved conventional levelling,... (read more)

New Web-GIS Architecture
As the fast growth of Web-GIS produces more and more applications requiring data stored at remote databases, data access security and data transfer speed over the internet are at issue. The authors compare traditional client/server approaches with the open-source OPeNDAP data server.<P> Traditional client/server Web-GIS applications are usually based on accessing databases stored in one server machine or within a network of servers. Data transport goes as follows: -client requests data using web interface, web service or other interface -data requests sent to HTTP server, which sends pre-defined SQL statement to database -database retrieves data and sends resulting dataset back...

NOAA, Google Join Forces to Visualise Scientific Data

NOAA's Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and Google have signed a cooperative research and development agreement outlining how they will work together to create state-of-the-art visualizations of scientific data to illustrate how our planet works. "It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Here, we think NOAA's billions of bits of data are worth thousands of pictures," said Richard W. Spinrad, Ph.D., NOAA assistant administrator for oceanic and atmospheric research. "Through this agreement, Google's technical expertise will help to improve access to NOAA data in ways that allow the scientific community and the public to better... (read more)
