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)
This book explores the far-reaching implications for linguistic theory of Eleanor Rosch's seminal work on categorization. A common assumption has been that all members of a category necessarily share a common set of attributes. Rosch's work suggests, instead, that categories are definable in the first instance in terms of best examples, or 'prototypes', and(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)
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)
Mapping inter-cell signaling pathways requires an integrated view of experimental and informatic protocols. BioSig provides the foundation of cataloging inter-cell responses as a function of particular conditioning , treatment, staining, etc. for either invivo or invitro experiments. This paper outlines the system architecture, a functional data model for(More)
