Next week, according to the information of Springer-Nature, the proofs of the second edition of “MATLAB and Design Recipes for Earth Sciences” (MDRES) will arrive on my desk, now with a new title “Collecting, Processing and Presenting Geoscientific Information” and the old title as the subtitle. According to Springer-Nature, the Hardcover book will cost € 90.94, the eBook € 71.39. This is of course a lot of money, especially for students who need not only this, but many other books to study.
The 2nd edition of “MATLAB and Design Recipes for Earth Sciences” comes with a new title, to be published in March 2018!
This exercise will show students how to capture thermal images, export them, import them to MATLAB, and calculate temperature readings. The Seek CompactPro does not allow the export of raw data, but only the images. Nevertheless, with a linear color palette it is possible to calculate and display quite good temperature values.
This exercise is intended to help students to understand the difference between accuracy and precision by means of performing multiple measures of distances by using the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Ultrasonic and Infrared Sensor. In addition, the students should understand in which data format the measurements are recorded, stored and transfered between the sensor and the computer.
The paperchase exercise is intended to help students to understand how to use sensors of mobile devices connected to a server via MATLAB Mobile. We used a laptop in the classroom, connected to the internet via WiFi, and a smartphone, connected to the internet via mobile internet connection. Continue reading “MATLAB Mobile GPS Paperchase”
