Updated> Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources Annotated White Paper
http://www.ScholarSearchEngines.com/

I am very pleased to announce that my Internet MiniGuide Annotated Link Compilation White Paper titled Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources has been just updated and is now a 66 page research paper listing selected resources both new and existing that will help anyone who is attempting to find academic and scholarly information and knowledge available on the Internet. Each source is described along with the URL address than can be accessed. It is freely available as a .pdf file (431KB) at the above link from the Virtual Private Library™ and authored by Marcus P. Zillman, M.S., A.M.H.A. [Updated September 1, 2011]

International Journal on Information Technology (IJIT)
http://ijit.theaceee.org/

The journal features original peer-reviewed papers on the theory and application of Information Technology. The dimensions of research areas in the Information Technology modeling have also got direct impact on the human beings. The journal deems to have a research forum where the scientists who study the dynamics of systems which have a direct bearing on the mass human population directly or indirectly, but not at the individual or micro level. International Journal on Information Technology is available free of charge as an Open Access journal on the Internet. Abstracts available online. Articles available in PDF format.

Crime Maps by Trulia

Crime Maps by Trulia
http://www.trulia.com/crime/#

Crime and safety are important factors when deciding on where to live. Trulia aims to aggregate the data and help home buyers and homeowners make better decisions. The crime data is provided by three partners, CrimeReports.com, EveryBlock.com and SpotCrime.com. These partners work with police agencies, crime feeds and news outlets for data. Unfortunately, not all police agencies publish data and we are limited by the partners we work with. The heat maps are created by analyzing the density of 12 months of crime data across census blocks. The color scale is relative, with an even percentage distribution across all cities. This means that the top 5% of blocks with the most crime density are colored dark red across every city, the next 5%-10% of blocks are light red while the next 10%-20% of blocks are orange, etc, following an s-curve distribution. The incident-level data (black dots) represents up to 2,500 of the most recently reported crime data. Updates to this crime data varies based on agency and location, from hourly to monthly, resulting in different cities having different time frames for data.

Apache Stanbol – Open Source Modular Software Stack for Semantic Content Management

Apache Stanbol – Open Source Modular Software Stack for Semantic Content Management
http://incubator.apache.org/stanbol/

Apache Stanbol (currently in incubation ) is an open source modular software stack and reusable set of components for semantic content management. Apache Stanbol components are meant to be accessed over RESTful interfaces to provide semantic services for content management. The current code is written in Java and based on the OSGi modularization framework. Applications include extending existing content management systems with (internal or external) semantic services, and creating new types of content management systems with semantics at their core. Its main features will include: a) Persistence: services that store (or cache) semantic information and make it searchable; b) Lifting/Enhancement: services that add semantic information to “non-semantic” pieces of content; c) Knowledge models and reasoning: services that enhance the semantic information; and d) Interaction: intelligent user interface management and generation. The Apache Stanbol project was initiated by the European R&D project [IKS – Interactive Knowledge Stack for small to medium CMS providers][iks]. Some people who are working on the project are part-funded by the IKS project, as well as by several European SME CMS providers, who are adopting Apache Stanbol. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to the Semantic Web Research Section of Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™.
