You can create a tree of "telewins"
(make a child telewin jump to any spot;
center the parent telewin)
Search under each telewin for all visible map features by name
Remember any map location in a cookie for future visits,

- CYGWIN Information:
Cygwin is a highly recommended (free)
port of Unix environment (with GNU development tools)
for Windows. Big plus is that you do not need dual-boot!
I have started to collect
information to help you get started.

- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies fluid flows
around geometric models (e.g., air flow around a wing).
Here, we need to construct meshes (or grids) in the exterior
of geometric models. A good representative for such work is
Numerical Aerospace Simulation (NAS) Division at
the NASA Ames Center. Here is a
mesh for a space shuttle model.

One of the fascination of GIS datasets is that each
data item has a unique reference in terms of latitudes and longitudes.
Merging disparate data sets using this common reference is
an important problem. But georeferencing problems arise even in
logical names. For instance, while the internet gives
indiscriminate access to global data, it is often important
to filter this access using georeferencing (more generally,
spatial and also temporal attributes). See
Eric Shaffer at UIUC for mapoing a host name, domain name, or IP Address
to latitudes and longitude. E.g. cs.nyu.edu
(Lat,Lon)=(40.839,-73.867), in downtown Manhattan
while cs.columbia.edu maps to
(Lat,Lon)=(40.849,-73.867), in uptown;
java.sun.com maps to (Lat,Lon)=(37.388,-122.067) in Mountain View, California.
