    A few simple rules guide the design of Web services such as TerraService, a geospatial service added to Microsoft's popular TerraServer database. By sticking to standards-based tools, the authors were able to implement the Web service with no major structural changes to the database. Because it conforms to the "1-to-10 Kbytes in one second" guideline, TerraService offers a highly acceptable user e... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (697 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Web services can help facilitate the exchange and utilization of geotechnical information. Such data is of critical interest to a growing number of municipal, state, and federal agencies as well as private enterprises. However, the lack of service infrastructures among heterogeneous data sources operating under different administrative organizations or agencies hampers the full use of geotechnical...

    Effective and efficient Web services infrastructures for geoprocessing are essential for fields such as e-government and e-tourism. However, few model-based approaches exist that let researchers analyze and measure system implementation performance. The authors present a performance evaluation of a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) implementation based on common standards. The SDI's purpose is to ... View full abstract»

    Integrating multiple geographic services from different information communities and spatiolinguistic regions is challenging because of its inherent complexity and heterogeneity. A geographic information systems workflow approach can use semantic and syntactic service descriptions to form service chains that can integrate service discovery, composition, and reuse. Service chaining links remote geog... View full abstract»

    Using Web services, the authors have been able to increase the amount of data accessible through the Naval Research Laboratory's geospatial information database (GIDB) portal. They created a Web crawler for Web mapping services (WMS) that harvests and adds data to the portal index and a translator that provides access to non-WMS data through the WMS interface. The integrated Web services broker, u... View full abstract»

    Mobile computing devices vary in terms of display, memory, and battery life, and current network protocols aren't necessarily suited to the mobile computing environment. As computer networks' complexity increases, communication-related software must be able to adapt to mobile computing's constraints. This study aims to develop a software system that adapts data flows over dynamic wireless network ... View full abstract»

    The standard approach to radio-spectrum allocation in the US posits three alternative models from which regulators choose (on a case-by-case basis) to impose basic rules for coordinating wireless activities. However, this regulatory framework often yields anticonsumer outcomes. The author argues that public policy should instead permit competitive market forces to allocate airwave rights among riv...

    For pt.1 see ibid., p.54-59 (2005). This work spawned an effort in the IETF to develop a generalized method for routing and tunneling different address families across uniform IPv4 or IPv6 backbone networks. Inspired by the CERNET2 effort, the IETF softwires working group has introduced a framework for a solution that offers a generalized, network-based capability for routing and tunneling multipl...

    Implementing digital signatures on an individual basis presents many challenges, particularly with regard to key management and maintenance. The digital signature services standard eliminates the need to distribute user keys or signing devices across an organization. Instead, it facilitates the use of networked servers to create and verify signatures. The protocol's flexibility makes it suitable f... View full abstract»

    The author reviewed Maik Schmidt's enterprise integration with Ruby as a means of exploring dynamic languages' applicability to middleware integration projects. Using languages such as Ruby for these projects is straight forward when developers can create pure dynamic language applications that access preexisting services, even though such services are typically implemented in middleware languages...

    Radio frequency identification is a wireless identification technology that relies on cheap tags that can be attached to objects and that nearby readers can track. The computer science and computer engineering department at the University of Arkansas started a project aimed at developing open-source RF middleware to address this latter problem. In this article, we describe that software's developm... View full abstract»

    Many possibilities exist for semantic technologies. Indeed, using over loaded terms correctly in a given context is a major challenge that semantics is attempting to meet, thus making it the technology of globalization. But in this column, we discuss applications that help us manage what we pay attention to: semantic attention management (SAM). Semantic technologies offer to make our niches of int...
