As an Excel add-in, GeoFlow provides interactive, 3-D geospatial and temporal data visualizations. It enables information workers to discover and share new insights from data through rich, 3-D data on a globe and fluid, cinematic guided tours—virtual cinematography moving through data. With dynamic data exploration that turns rows and columns of spatiotemporal data into rich 3-D maps, the term “add-in” really doesn’t do justice to the technology behind GeoFlow, a preview of which is available for download. But even while Curtis Wong, principal researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond, was busy giving talks about WWT, he had further ambitions in mind for the technology.

POV-Ray - The Persistence of Vision Raytracer Entity Resolution Framework News Jan. 2012: Our paper on Pay-As-You-Go ER [11] has been accepted to the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering. Overview The goal of the SERF project is to develop a generic infrastructure for Entity Resolution (ER). In our approach, the functions that "match" records (i.e. decide whether they represent the same entity) and "merge" them are viewed as black-boxes, which permits generic, extensible ER solutions. Some of the challenges we are addressing in the SERF project include: Performance: Entity resolution algorithms must perform a very large number of comparisons.

Champix Information and Stopping Smoking How to Become a Paranormal Investigator In case you don’t understand what I mean by ‘paranormal investigator’, I mean someone who tries to figure out if ghosts, spirits or other alleged phenomenon are responsible for certain events. When I first saw the term, I thought of Dirk Gently, the holistic detective from Douglas Adams’ books. Turns out he was just an abnormal investigator. That was too obscure of a reference for a joke, wasn’t it? Since I am the self-proclaimed tin-hatter here at MakeUseOf, I’ll give you my take on how to become a paranormal investigator and some great sites to help you on the way. Yes, the first site I recommend is Canadian and that is pure coincidence. Paranormal Studies and Investigations Canada has a great site with tons of information. – Paranormal Phenomena It may seem like a bit of a cop-out to list The Atlantic Paranormal Society Also known as TAPS, the gang over there are responsible for the show Ghost Hunters on the SciFi channel as well as Beyond Reality Radio.
