Intelligent transport system
Renato Filjar, Mićo Dujak, Boris Drilo, Dinko Šarić
Recent advancements provide means for exploitation of mobile user location-related data for location-based and ITS. The telecom location-related data exploitation, generated and collected by the pure nature of mobile communication networks, will act as a key factor in establishing the New- Generation Intelligent Transport Systems. 

Flight test evaluation of a GPS/INS based integrity monitoring
Toshiaki Tsujii, Hiroshi Tomita, Takeshi Fujiwara and Masatoshi Harigae
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) developed a FDE software for integrity monitoring based on a filter bank method, and evaluated its performance by using flight test data. Since a Japanese satellite based augmentation system, MSAS, has been operational since September 2007, the MSAS differential correction data were also used in order to evaluate the effect of reducing protection level.

SDI: Purpose and direction
Jesús Olvera Ramirez
Complex problems do not require complex solutions but solutions with knowledge. Knowledge derived from multiple, accurate and compatible sources.The term Spatial Data Infrastructure implies that “Data” is being dealt with, although experts and non experts sometimes expect that SDI solve complex spatial problems.

Is spatial special
Ian Williamson
Today almost every piece of data has a location, with the ability to assign a location to all natural and human activity having transformed the way modern societies manage both the natural and built environments.
