I am currently doing a M.Tech in Geoinformatics, having done an UG in Electrical & Electronics Engg and 3yrs Software Work Experience in DotNet and Java (I know C, C++ also). I am looking for thesis topic in the field of Photogrammetry/Microwave Remote Sensing/ GIS integration.
I received an offer to do my project with an MNC on a project titled "GIS integration with Outage Management System" (Electrical outage). This topic describes the integration of GIS to help dispatch service staff to outage locations.
All the work is done within ArcFM. They are trying to make the different utilities talk to a GIS utility in the Electric Management System where they are facing problem with bringing the GIS data up to CIM standards (IEC standard for Electricals) which involves a fair amount of work since due to the complexities of converting to common standards and returning the data back from the converted format.
Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?
Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the Americaâs annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.
The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:
technology - Silicon Valley
finance - New York
There are other factors to consider. How important are mountains? the ocean? good weather? I have met many midwesterners in Acapulco during the winter, and none ever told me
"I got to get back to Omaha. I just miss those snow covered plains."
4,000 Year Old Greenlander
WASHINGTON (Reuters) â Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
