Tutorial: Freedom Board with Adafruit Ultimate GPS Data Logger Shield Many times I start with a project and tutorial, only to get interrupted for emergency tasks and assignments. For a long time I wanted to add GPS (Global Positioning System) functionality to one of my projects. While I started a few months ago on this, it took me until this week-end to finish the at least the first part: a SD card data logger with GPS :-): I calculate global positioning and time information, can use it in Google maps and store it on a SD card: Adafruit GPS Data Logger Shield on a FRDM-KL25Z Board This tutorial is about using the Adafruit Ultimate GPS Data Logger Shield with Eclipse and Processor Expert. I’m using the Freescale FRDM-KL25Z board, but in general any board or hardware can be used, as long I have 5V, GND and RX on the microcontroller.

Medical Geography and Disease Surveillance A Survey has been developed by myself to document and compare GIS utilization in the workplace. This is intended only for sharing at this blogsite (and Medical GIS conferences) –no gimmicks, no advertising. Survey Monkey is used, which is a secured survey site that gathers no private information. Why the survey? There must be others like me trying to deal with the frustrations experienced due the slow progress made when it comes to incorporating high level GIS skills into the workplace. This survey assesses GIS availability and utilization in both academic and non-academic work settings.
Osmapi This documentation is about a python class to communicate with OpenStreetMap API v0.6 developped by User:EtienneChove (currently maintained by User:Metaodi). Please submit an issue if you require other features. Hello World : node download Documentation The documentation is available online: Examples Seam carving: content-aware image resizing Ariel Shamir and Shai Avidan have presented the coolest digital image effect I have ever seen. “Seam carving” allows an image to be resized non-uniformly, so you can change the height to width ratio in the image without cropping, but also without distorting important features in the image (such as faces). If I understood the demonstration correctly, the algorithm detects horizontal and vertical paths which span the whole image and have the least gradient magnitude along the span. When resizing an image, the pixels along these seams are stretched or removed, leaving the rest of the image untouched. Areas of an image that absolutely need to be preserved can be manually excluded, and the seam generating function will negotiate paths around those pixels. You need to watch the video to really see this in action, but the technique can also be used to remove whole portions of an image without perceptible artifacts.
