The Google Elevation API provides you a simple interface to query locations on the earth for elevation data. Additionally, you may request sampled elevation data along paths, allowing you to calculate elevation changes along routes.
The amount of input data acquired from a remote sensing equipment is rapidly growing. Interactive visualization of those datasets is a necessity for their correct interpretation. With the ability of modern hardware to display hundreds of millions of triangles per second, it is possible to visualize the massive terrains at one pixel display error on HD displays with interactive frame rates when batched rendering is applied. Algorithms able to do this are an area of intensive research and a topic of this article. The paper first explains some of the theory around the terrain visualization, categorizes its algorithms according to several criteria and describes six of the most significant methods in more details.
In this post I've collected a lot of links on the topic of 64-bit C/C++ software development. These include my articles and articles by my colleagues in the sphere of developing safe and efficient 64-bit code; FAQ's and a training course. There are also many reviews of third-party articles on 64-bit software development. Enjoy yourself studying the materials.

It’s been awhile since I posted something here, and I figured I might use this spot to explain some general points about graphics hardware and software as of 2011; you can find functional descriptions of what the graphics stack in your PC does, but usually not the “how” or “why”; I’ll try to fill in the blanks without getting too specific about any particular piece of hardware. I’m going to be mostly talking about DX11-class hardware running D3D9/10/11 on Windows, because that happens to be the (PC) stack I’m most familiar with – not that the API details etc. will matter much past this first part; once we’re actually on the GPU it’s all native commands.
Google Apps contain the proprietary Google applications that come pre-installed with most android devices. Due to licensing restrictions, these apps cannot come pre-installed with CyanogenMod and must be installed separately. CyanogenMod does not require Google Apps to function properly, however, to take full advantage of the Android system, Google Apps are recommended.
The Quandary texture pack for Minecraft is designed to act as a subtle replacement to the original Minecraft textures. Quandary uses the original textures and adds more fidelity to the terrain, items, and interface, improving the visibility of world blocks. In other words, two players playing on the same server will be able to experience the same "feel" even when one is using the Quandary texture pack and the other is using the default textures.
S překladem se začalo již v únoru 2010, kdy světlo světa spatřila betaverze hry. Naneštěstí až s příchodem plné verze jsme zjistili, jak je ve skutečnosti hra (co do počtu textů) obsáhlá, nicméně díky tvrdé práci celého překladatelského týmu vám tímto překlad přinášíme již po měsíci od vydání hry.
