Towards the prediction of Earthquakes with GNSS data
Dr Shunji Murai, Dr Harumi Araki and Dr Hideharu Yanagi
The paper aims to validate the use of GNSS signals prior to the occurrence of earthquakes as a means of earthquake prediction, by referring to the Great East Japan Earthquake. The validation is based on data analysis of GNSS signals at GNSS-based Control Stations, about 1,200 of which have been installed all over Japan by Geospatial Information Authority (GSI) since 1996...

Suitability of projection for Defense Series Maps
Lt Col PVGS Jayaram, Dr T Vijaya Lakshmi and Maj Gen RC Padhi
It’s right time to close the discussion once for all and cement the choice of suitable projection for DSM. National Mapping Policy (India) 2005 has recommended rightfully the usage of UTM as projection for Open Series Maps (OSM), and LCC for Defence Series Maps (DSM). There are valid technical reasons why LCC suits DSM when compared to UTM...
