Epidemiologists are adopting new remote sensing techniques to study a variety of vector-borne diseases. Associations between satellite-derived environmental variables such as temperature, humidity, and land cover type and vector density are used to identify and characterize vector habitats. The convergence of factors such as the availability of(More)
Cancer control researchers seek to reduce the burden of cancer by studying interventions, their impact in defined populations, and the means by which they can be better used. The first step in cancer control is identifying where the cancer burden is elevated, which suggests locations where interventions are needed. Geographic information systems (GIS) and(More)
The Transportable Applications Environment (TAE) Plus is a general purpose user interface development and management system. TAE Plus was designed for user interface (UI) designers who are not programmers and it provides an intuitive development environment for (1) interactively constructing the visual layout of an application screen, (2) rehearsing the UI,(More)
The Transportable Applications Environment Plus (TAE Plus) is a NASA-developed user interface development environment (UIDE) for the rapid prototyping, evaluation, implementation, and management of user interfaces. TAE Plus provides an intuitive What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) WorkBench for designing an application's user interface. The WorkBench(More)
This paper describes the evolution of the Transportable Applications Executive (TAE) (developed at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) from a traditional procedural menu and command-oriented system to an object-oriented, modeless user interface management system, known as TAE Plus. The impetus for developing this environment and early experiments which led to(More)
TAE Plus was built at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center to support the building of GUI user interfaces for highly interactive applications, such as realtime processing systems and scientific analysis system. TAE Plus is designed as a productivity tool for the user interface designer. Human factor experts and user interface designers frequently do not want(More)
Concerned over the growing epidemic of death by suicide in the United States, the National Institute of Mental Health of the U.S. National Institutes of Health funded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) projects using innovative web-based approaches to provide resources to professionals and the general public about suicide prevention. The Preventing(More)
The Transportable Applications Environment (TAE) Plus, developed at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, is an advanced portable user interface development environment which simplifies the process of creating and managing complex application graphical user interfaces (GUIs). TAE Plus supports the rapid prototyping of GUIs and allows applications to be ported(More)
Developers of interactive systems must make difficult engineering trade-offs in order to optimize their development processes and end products. The trade-offs are made among desirable, but sometimes conflicting, goals such as minimizing the future effects of changing technology and improving system runtime performance. The purpose of this paper is to(More)
