Generally, an aerial mapping requires image with good quality such as clear image, nearly vertical image, including more overlapping image, as well as constant interior orientation, exterior orientation parameters and ground control point (GCP), all of which are necessary for image processing to generate the orthophoto map. Therefore the control of imaging and data logging system are important and very useful. However, these kind of systems are generally not supported in UAV platform. This research will present the designing and creating of 2-axis brushless gimbal (camera controller), including the development of data logger for using in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platform, particularly multi-rotor UAV (or Drone). Which these developed tools will be used in order to control and stabilize a camera for vertical imaging to get a nearly vertical image, as well as data logging of exterior orientation parameters for digital image processing and georeferencing in aerial mapping. The prototype of 2-axis brushless gimbal is capable of rotating around X-axis (roll) and Y-axis (pitch) in a range of maximum at -45o to 45o by using Brushless DC (BLDC) motor, which helps the camera stabilize smoothly. The results of the experiment shows better quality of images that are derived from developed 2-axis brushless gimbal and data logger. Images were tilted in range of -1.889o to 2.099o and -1.247o to 1.625o of roll and pitch angles respectively. In addition, all exterior orientation parameters of each image can also be recorded to facilitate aerial mapping processing.

Print designers work in images, shapes, and color: not code. The last thing many of them want to do is to translate their work into mono-spaced tags and numbers, divs and ids. But print designers can't ignore the web and producing a design for the web has become a common part of a complete graphics package. And, knowing the basics of CSS is an essential ingredient for success. CSS for Print Designers presents web design concepts using metaphors that make sense to visual designers. Instead of using terms like semantics and structure, the book simplifies the language of web design using metaphors that print designers are comfortable with such as grouping like items or sculpting a layout from top to bottom or even how using sprites with CSS is like importing and cropping images in InDesign. The book uses efficient use of space with supporting graphics that demonstrate complex concepts such as nesting tags, clearing floats, and creating sprites.

Humans perceive the three-dimensional structure of the world with apparent ease. However, despite all of the recent advances in computer vision research, the dream of having a computer interpret an image at the same level as a two-year old remains elusive. Why is computer vision such a challenging problem and what is the current state of the art? Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications explores the variety of techniques commonly used to analyze and interpret images. It also describes challenging real-world applications where vision is being successfully used, both for specialized applications such as medical imaging, and for fun, consumer-level tasks such as image editing and stitching, which students can apply to their own personal photos and videos. More than just a source of “recipes,” this exceptionally authoritative and comprehensive textbook/reference also takes a scientific approach to basic vision problems, formulating physical models of the imaging process before inverting them to produce descriptions of a scene. These problems are also analyzed using statistical models and solved using rigorous engineering techniques Topics and features: structured to support active curricula and project-oriented courses, with tips in the Introduction for using the book in a variety of customized courses; presents exercises at the end of each chapter with a heavy emphasis on testing algorithms and containing numerous suggestions for small mid-term projects; provides additional material and more detailed mathematical topics in the Appendices, which cover linear algebra, numerical techniques, and Bayesian estimation theory; suggests additional reading at the end of each chapter, including the latest research in each sub-field, in addition to a full Bibliography at the end of the book; supplies supplementary course material for students at the associated website, http://szeliski.org/Book/. Suitable for an upper-level undergraduate or graduate-level course in computer science or engineering, this textbook focuses on basic techniques that work under real-world conditions and encourages students to push their creative boundaries. Its design and exposition also make it eminently suitable as a unique reference to the fundamental techniques and current research literature in computer vision.

A superbly illustrated book that examines the emergence of modern Chinese interior design and architecture, from the country's enthusiastic embrace of Western technologies and advancements in the wake of the "Cultural Revolution," to today's quiet renaissance of traditional values. It is not a simple return to ancient times and themes, but a successful and mature approach to blending the old with the new. Today's developments in Chinese interior design are a direct result of the gradual awakening of national consciousness and a new appreciation of the idea that "the more national a culture is, the more internationally cherished it becomes." The book is divided into five chapters all devoted to rethinking specific elements of Chinese design tradition including philosophy, ideas, techniques, decorations and components. It covers ceilings, furniture, courtyards, spatial definition, ventilation techniques, lighting and much more.
