The Age of Discovery explores one of the most dramatic features of the late medieval and early modern period: when voyagers from Western Europe led by Spain and Portugal set out across the world and established links with Africa, Asia and the Americas. This book examines the main motivations behind the voyages and discusses the developments in navigation expertise and technology that made them possible. This second edition brings the scholarship up to date and includes two new chapters on the important topics of the idea of "discovery" and on biological and environmental factors which favoured or limited European expansion.

Journalism In The Age Of Virtual Reality

With the advent of the internet and handheld or wearable media systems that plunge the user into 360o video, augmented—or virtual reality—technology is changing how stories are told and created. In this book, John V. Pavlik argues that a new form of mediated communication has emerged: experiential news. Experiential media delivers not just news stories but also news experiences, in which the consumer engages news as a participant or virtual eyewitness in immersive, multisensory, and interactive narratives. Pavlik describes and analyzes new tools and approaches that allow journalists to tell stories that go beyond text and image. He delves into developing forms such as virtual reality, haptic technologies, interactive documentaries, and drone media, presenting the principles of how to design and frame a story using these techniques. Pavlik warns that although experiential news can heighten user engagement and increase understanding, it may also fuel the transformation of fake news into artificial realities, and he discusses the standards of ethics and accuracy needed to build public trust in journalism in the age of virtual reality. Journalism in the Age of Virtual Reality offers important lessons for practitioners seeking to produce quality experiential news and those interested in the ethical considerations that experiential media raise for journalism and the public.

Navigation fundamentally provides information on position, velocity and direction which are needed for travel in ocean, land, air and in space. The myriad forms of navigation developed so far are collectively called modern navigation. This recent text discusses new promising developments that will assist the students when they enter their future professional career. It is the outcome of authors’ wide experience in teaching, research and development in the field of navigation and inertial sensors. The content of the book is designed to impart adequate knowledge to the students in the area of navigation and related sensors. The text discusses inertial navigation, inertial sensors, MEMS based inertial sensors, satellite navigation, integrated inertial navigation, signal processing of inertial sensors and their applications. The chapters introduce all the topics in an easy to understand manner so that an appreciative understanding of the text matter can be made without resorting to equations and mathematics. Considerable references have been provided to enable both the students and the professors to dwell and learn more on the topics of their interest. This textbook is primarily intended to meet the academic needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students of aerospace engineering and avionics.

Many books on celestial navigation take shortcuts in explaining concepts; incorrect diagrams and discussion are often used for the sake of moving the student along quickly. This book tells the true story-and the whole story. It conveys celestial navigation concepts clearly and in the shortest possible time.It's tailored for navigation in the GPS age-a time of computers, calculators, and web resources. Although it covers all of the traditional methods of 'working a sight, ' the primary thrust is using the (under $10) scientific calculator. By using equations that you key into your calculator, this book guides you toward a better understanding of the concepts of celestial navigation.You will learn novel ways to plot lines of position, ways to check your sextant accurately by star sights, and how to tell what time it is from a moon sight. The many appendices are a treasure of references and explanations of abstract ideas. Celestial Navigation is a crucial skill for the offshore navigator to know, this book provides the shortest path to that knowledge.

Hand Bone Age

Author : Vicente Gilsanz
ISBN : 3540270701
Genre : Medical
File Size : 50.51 MB

For decades, the determination of bone maturity has relied on a visual evaluation of skeletal development in the hand and wrist, most commonly using the Greulich and Pyle atlas. The Gilsanz and Ratib digital atlas takes advantage of the advent of digital imaging and provides a more effective and objective approach to skeletal maturity assessment. This atlas integrates the key morphological features of ossification in the bones of the hand and wrist and provides idealized, sex- and age-specific images of skeletal development. This computer-generated set of images should serve as a reasonable alternative to the reference books currently available.

Truly revolutionary: now you can write geolocation applications directly in the browser, rather than develop native apps for particular devices. This concise book demonstrates the W3C Geolocation API in action, with code and examples to help you build HTML5 apps using the "write once, deploy everywhere" model. Along the way, you get a crash course in geolocation, browser support, and ways to integrate the API with common geo tools like Google Maps. Ideal for experienced JavaScript developers. Learn how geo information is gathered from different sources, depending on the device Discover how coordinate systems work, including geodetic systems and datums Use the API to collect location information from a user’s browser with JavaScript code Place geo information on a map using the Google Maps or ArcGIS JavaScript APIs Save geo data with databases, the Keyhole Markup Language, or the shapefile format Be familiar with several practical uses for geo data, such as geomarketing, geosocial, geotagging, and geo-applications
