This paper outlines the requirements, architecture, and design of a " Microscopy Channel " over the wide area network. A microscopy channel advertises a listing of available online microscopes, where users can seamlessly participate in an experiment, acquire expert opinions, collect and process data, and store this information in their electronic notebook.(More)
This paper summarizes a strategy for supplying ecosystem services in urban areas through a participatory planning process targeting multifunctional green infrastructure. We draw from the literature on landscape multifunctionality, which has primarily been applied to agricultural settings, and propose opportunities to develop urban green infrastructure that(More)
The purpose of this paper is to suggest a view of word meaning on the type level based on " meaning potentials " rather than on reified type meanings founded on either of the two traditional approaches of abstract generalization (Gesamtbedeu-tung) and typical or basic meaning (Grundbedeutung). It is suggested that actual meaning on the occurrence level is(More)
We present an approach for remote operation of instruments in the Internet environment. We h a v e applied this approach to in-situ electron microscopy experiments that require dynamic interaction with the specimen under observation , as it is excited with external stimuli, i.e., temperature variation, EM eld variation, etc. The dynamic operations include(More)
Real-time computer vision systems often make use of dedicated image processing hardware to perform the pixel-oriented operations typical of early vision. This type of hardware is notoriously difficult to program, limiting the types of experiments that can be performed and posing a serious obstacle to research progress. This paper describes a pair of(More)
