Das satellitengestützte Positionierungssystem GPS wurde ursprünglich für die militärische Navigation konzipiert und entwickelt. Bald wurden aber auch die Anwendungsmöglichkeiten im zivilen Bereich erkannt. Unter anderem zählt GPS heute bereits zu den Standardmethoden der geodätischen Punktbestimmung, wobei Genauigkeiten bis in den Millimeterbereich erzielt werden können. Dieses Buch richtet sich an alle, die eine praxisbezogene Beschreibung von GPS hinsichtlich der Beobachtung und der Auswertung suchen. Nach einer elementaren Einführung in das Prinzip von GPS werden die wichtigsten Aspekte der Beobachtung beginnend von der Planung über die Durchführung bis zur Berechnung der Basisvektoren beschrieben. Das Schwergewicht des Buches liegt in der Auswertung. Im Detail werden die Netzbildung, die Transformation der GPS-Ergebnisse in das lokale geodätische Datum sowie die gemeinsame Ausgleichung von GPS und terrestrischen Messungen behandelt, wobei zahlreiche numerische Beispiele angeführt sind. Im Anhang sind neben den Zahlenwerten für die Parameter der bekanntesten Ellipsoide auch die Formelsysteme für die gebräuchlichsten konformen Abbildungen enthalten.

Bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit blieb uns der Zugang zu vielen der interessanten Aspekte des Denkens von Kindern verwehrt. Philosophen haben sich Jahrhunderte lang darum gestritten, ob Säuglinge die Welt als "strahlendes und dröhnendes Durcheinander" sehen oder ganz ähnlich wie ältere Kinder und Erwachsene. Erst mit der Entwicklung aufschlußreicher experimenteller Methoden in den vergangenen Jahren wurde die Antwort deutlich. Sogar Neugeborene sehen bestimmte Aspekte der Welt recht klar und mit 6 Monaten ähnelt die Wahrnehmung von Säuglingen der von Erwachsenen. Dies und andere Erkenntnisse über das Denken von Kindern sind Gegenstand dieses Buches.

Mit Sokrates und Co. auf Entdeckungsreise zu sich selbst Philosophie muss keine verstaubte Wissenschaft sein, die verschrobene Exzentriker in ihrem Elfenbeinturm praktizieren! Sie kann vielmehr zur unerschöpflichen Quelle der Inspiration werden, um die Herausforderungen des Lebens zu meistern. So haben es uns die großen Philosophen der Antike eindrucksvoll vor Augen geführt. Ob Sokrates, Aristoteles oder Diogenes – jeder von ihnen steht für einen nachvollziehbaren und gangbaren Weg, wie der Mensch zu sich selbst finden, ein erfülltes Leben führen und in Einklang mit anderen Menschen leben kann. Die Essenz ihrer Lehren ist auch für das moderne Leben richtungweisend. Um dies zu verdeutlichen, bettet Jules Evans seine Darstellung in reale Geschichten heutiger Menschen ein: Menschen, die mithilfe der Philosophie selbst schwierigste Situationen mit Mut und Würde bestanden. Dieses Buch bietet Philosophie für die Straße, den Arbeitsplatz, für Freundschaft, Liebe – eine Philosophie für Jung und Alt.
