Internetes szakfolyóirat a térat-infrastrukturák kutatásáról / On-line Journal on SDR Research

International Journal on Spatial Data Infrastructures Research

Extract of the Call for Papers:
Articles are considered for publication in the following areas:
The Journal encourages articles from broad multi-disciplinary backgrounds including social and environmental sciences, and engineering, deploying also critical and interpretative methodologies. Articles in the following areas are particularly welcome:
Spatial and Network Technologies with particular emphasis on the development of geoinformation services, interoperability, technical specifications and standards, distributed geoprocessing and grid computing, sensor webs, intelligent (geo)agents, and related areas. Reflections on the next generation of SDIs, their components, and research challenges that need addressing to develop them are encouraged.
Distributed Spatial databases and metadata with particular emphasis on data harmonization, conceptual modeling and schema mapping, semantics, ontologies, data quality and uncertainty, and innovative ways of documenting, indexing, searching and retrieving information resources in multi-lingual/cultural and multi-disciplinary settings.
Methods for data mining and knowledge retrieval, feature extraction, data fusion, integration, generalization, and visualization in distributed environments, and to spatial analysis, modeling, and simulation in environmental and social policy domains.
Information Policies with particular attention paid to the impacts of different policies and business models for data acquisition, documentation and maintenance, access, and exploitation. Articles reflecting on the differential impacts of such policies on data producers, value added resellers and business, education and research, and end-users at different levels, from trans-national to local, are encouraged, as well as articles on the organizational and institutional challenges to SDI implementation.
Applications and Impacts of SDIs at local, regional, national, and trans-national levels in different environmental and social policy thematic domains. Articles on applications are encouraged to be more than a mere description, but to provide a critical reflection on the underlying drivers, of what seemed to work and what did not. Analyses of failures are also welcomed as there is much to learn from these experiences. The Journal intends to pay particular attention to the social and economic impacts of SDIs, and related Information Infrastructures (e.g. e-government) at organizational, inter-organizational, and territorial levels. Studies on cost-benefits and return on investment are especially welcomed as well as evidence of positive or negative impacts on and for communities (virtual or physical) in respect to their development, mobilization, participation and empowerment.

3D visualisation - the HoloVizio approach

Illustration: extracted from Holografika Ltd's homepage

Hungarian solution for 3D Display: the HoloVizio

Holografika Kft has been nominated in the IT category of the World Economic Forum's "Technology Pioneers 2006 and has business success at the recent Research and Innovation Exhibition in Paris.

The 3DCGI.com writes on the HoloVizio approach of the Hungarian Company Holografika:

"The feature list for the HoloVizio line of displays is impressive. Like most of the displays mentioned here HoloVizio boasts true 3D with the naked eye. But, it's the other features that stand out.
- Viewers can walk around the screen in a wide field of view seeing the objects and shadows moving continuously as in the normal perspective. It is even possible to look behind the objects, hidden details appear, while others disappear (motion parallax)
- Unlimited number of viewers can see simultaneously the same 3D scene on the screen, with the possibility of seeing different details
- Objects appear behind or even in front of the screen like on holograms
- No positioning or head tracking applied
The displays are currently available in 32" (16:9) and 26" (4:3) sizes. "
