Technical Knowledge Bases

| Cartography | Geographic Information Systems (GIS) | Global Positioning System | Remote Sensing |
 Cartography and Mapping Links (Cartesia Software)
  Links to cartography, mapping and geography resources
Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
 Gateway to GIS Resources (U.S. Census Bureau)
 Geo Info Systems Resource Page (ADVANSTAR Communications)
  Covers a range of links from starting points to more detailed material
 GeoDirectory (
 Geographic Information Systems (DWIC)
  Geographic information systems (GIS) are a subset of data visualization tools with the key distinction being that the graphics displayed are maps. The products listed are designed for analysis of business data typically stored in a DSS or data warehouse. Not listed are GIS tools designed for more traditional uses of maps usually involving some sort of analysis of terrain.
 Geographic Information Systems - GIS (U.S. Geological Survey)
  Geographic information systems (GIS) technology can be used for scientific investigations, resource management, and development planning. For example, a GIS might allow emergency planners to easily calculate emergency response times in the event of a natural disaster, or a GIS might be used to find wetlands that need protection from pollution.
 Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - WWW Resource List (Department of Geography, University of Edinburgh,)
  Describesd itself as "The World's Leading Provider of Geospatial Information "
 GIS - Frequently Asked Questions (Langley Research Center)
  Geographic Information System (GIS) is an integrated system of computer hardware, software, and trained personnel linking topographic, demographic, utility, facility, image and other resource data that is geographically referenced. Simplistically put the system is based on premises that "pictures are worth thousands of words" and most data can be related to a map or other easily understood graphic.
 GIS / Environmental Sites (Digital Land Systems Research)
 GIS and GIP (Geographic Image Processing) Software Listing (University of Delaware)
  "This is a general compilation of many of the major Geographic Information Software (GIS) and Geographic Image Processing (GIP) packages currently available. I use the term "GIP" to distinguish between traditional image processing software such as Adobe Photoshop and those packages which are intended to support Satellite and Airborne derived data. A GIP package must allow geographic rectification, image registration and support map projections, spheroids, etc."
 GIS and Mapping related sites (A Brody)
  An internet index of Geography, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Mapping sites on the internet.
 GIS Buyers Guide (Geo Info Systems)
 GIS Frequently Asked Questions and General Info List Index
  The FAQ is a resource of the comp.infosystems.gis newsgroup and the GIS-L mailing list
 GIS Resources and Pointers (Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies)
 GIS WWW Resource List (Department of Geography, University of Edinburgh)
  This is an index of World-Wide Web (WWW) servers which are likely to be of interest to the GIS community.
 Online Resources for Earth Scientists (Bill Thoen)
 The Soft Earth - A Tour of the Web for Geoscientists (Phillip Ingram)
  "The Soft Earth is the second part of Web page of internet resources for Geoscientists. The first is The Virtual Earth which is an introduction to the Web, concentrating on starting points for Web exploration, data searches and special Earth Science connections. The Soft Earth aims to be more of a resource listing for Geoscience software available on the Internet."
 US Government Survey National Mapping Information
  The production of digital cartographic data and graphic maps comprises the largest component of the USGS National Mapping Program (NMP). Cartographic data are compiled from aerial photographs, other remotely sensed images, historical records, legal documents, and direct field observations and surveys and comply with standards of content, geometric accuracy, and presentation. Modern, automated equipment is used in this process, replacing the labor-intensive processes of the past. The NMP incorporates the documented needs of 40 Federal agencies and the 50 States, which are solicited and analyzed as part of a continuous requirements assessment process.
 The Virtual Earth - A Tour of the World Wide Web For Earth Scientists (Phillip Ingram)
  "This page is an introduction to the World Wide Web for Earth Scientists. It is not intended to be a resource listing, but to illustrate the potential of the Web as an information retrieval system. A second part of this document is The Soft Earth, which is more of a resource listing of software available on the Net."
 Xerox PARC Map Viewer
  The Xerox PARC Map Viewer is a World-Wide Web HTTP server that accepts requests for a World or USA map and returns an HTML document including an image of the requested map. Each map image is created on demand from a geographic database. Selecting on the map image requests a new map zoomed in on the selected point. Links embedded in the HTML document control other map rendering options.
Global Positioning System
 Global Positioning System Overview (University of Texas)
  GPS is funded by and controlled by the U. S. Department of Defense (DOD). While there are many thousands of civil users of GPS world-wide, the system was designed for and is operated by the U. S. military. GPS provides specially coded satellite signals that can be processed in a GPS receiver, enabling the receiver to compute position, velocity and time. Four GPS satellite signals are used to compute positions in three dimensions and the time offset in the receiver clock.
