Indoor Navigation - solutions by infsoft Indoor navigation deals with navigation within buildings. Because GPS reception is normally non-existent inside buildings, other positioning technologies are used here when automatic positioning is desired. WiFi or beacons (Bluetooth Low Energy, BLE) are often used in this case to create a so-called "indoor GPS". Contrary to GPS, however, they also enable you to determine the actual floor level. Most applications require an "indoor routing" functionality that guides people precisely through a building using an indoor navigation app and in this way, automatically determines their position - very similar to the navigation systems that we use in our cars.

Team identifies hidden clues to ancient supercontinents, confirms Pannotia An Ohio University geologist who first proposed the now-accepted supercontinent cycle theory in the 1980s has rallied to the cause of one of those supercontinents, Pannotia, that is in danger of being overlooked. Dr. Damian Nance, Distinguished Professor of Geological Sciences, said the supercontinent cycle is known to have had a profound influence on the course of Earth history and the evolution of its oceans, atmosphere and biosphere, and is now thought to be, in addition, the dominant influence on the circulation of the Earth's mantle, even fundamentally affecting the behavior of Earth's magnetic field.
