This volume is a comprehensive guide to the use of geographic information systems (GIS) for the spatial analysis of supply and demand for energy in the global and local scale. It gathers the latest research and techniques in GIS for spatial and temporal analysis of energy systems, mapping of energy from fossil fuels, optimization of renewable energy sources, optimized deployment of existing power sources, and assessment of environmental impact of all of the above. Author Lubos Matejicek covers GIS for assessment a wide variety of energy sources, including fossil fuels, hydropower, wind power, solar energy, biomass energy, and nuclear power as well as the use of batteries and accumulators. The author also utilizes case studies to illustrate advanced techniques such as multicriteria analysis, environmental modeling for prediction of energy consumption, and the use of mobile computing and multimedia tools.

This important book demonstrates why geography matters in the modern-day world through its examination of 100 moments throughout history that had a significant impact on the study of geography—literally, "writing about the earth." • Provides readers with an understanding of why geography matters to our 21st-century world and an awareness of how geography affects our everyday lives and is key to wise decision making • Addresses and explains key themes of geography, including scale, physical processes, cultural processes, patterns, relationships, models, and trends • Integrates time, space, and place in geography, documenting how it is not only the study of spatial patterns, but also the fact that many discoveries in geography came about because of the particular time and place in which the discoverers lived

A science-based text, New Developments in Biological and Chemical Terrorism Countermeasures presents research that addresses the growing threat of chemical and biological terrorism as well as the need for improvements in the implementation of countermeasures. This new textbook building upon Advances in Biological and Chemical Terrorism Countermeasures is the product of more than a decade of synthesizing newly acquired information through extensive research and development supported by the United States Army through Texas Tech University’s Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, Jr. National Program for Countermeasures to Biological and Chemical Threats. The book describes and expands upon threats, vulnerabilities, and pathogenic and toxic effects associated with agents used in biological and chemical terrorism. Among the discussions of agents is an exceptionally thorough examination of ricin history, toxicity, adsorption, and mobility. It also gives an overview of protective gear and in-depth perspectives on future research needs, including identifying challenges and paths forward in predicting risks. Effective countermeasures to biological and chemical threats are becoming increasingly necessary. New Developments in Biological and Chemical Terrorism Countermeasures provides a cutting-edge source addressing and advancing this need. It offers strategies and expert viewpoints toward improving defenses against threats in the United States as well as other nations.

Schätzungsweise 80% aller verfügbaren Daten haben geographischen Bezug. Dank der rasanten Entwicklung von Hard- und Software ist es heute leichter denn je, diese raumbezogenen Daten als Karte abzubilden. Zunehmend bedienen sich daher heute auch Praktiker und Wissenschaftler ohne spezielle Kartographiekenntnisse dieser Form der Darstellung. Dem Leser wird zunächst unverzichtbares Basiswissen aus dem Bereich der thematischen Kartographie vermittelt und darauf aufbauend die Methodik der angewandten digitalen Kartographie erläutert. Wie sieht ein kartographischer PC-Arbeitsplatz aus? Wie kommen die Daten in den PC? Wie wird eine Karte daraus und wie kommt diese anschließend auf den Drucker oder ins Internet? Diese Fragen werden in einem separaten Kapitel zur angewandten digitalen Kartographie beantwortet. Ein ausführlicher Überblick über gängige Software rundet das Buch ab. Die beiliegende CD-ROM enthält Demoversionen zu diesen Programmen.
