An Electronic Journal of Geography and Mathematics. This publication
has just completed its 15 year. The journal appears twice yearly
on astronomical solstices. Most articles are peer-reviewed by one
or more reviewers in fields related to those of the submitting authors.
Solstice displays a wide range of creative and imaginative use of current
technology: from animated
maps that blend space and time, to Java (TM) applets that may reflect
stability, to clickable
maps that offer spatial views of large databases, to virtual
reality in support of local governmental interaction with civil society,
of color photos (not usually possible in high-cost conventional publications)
depicting some element of the state of the world's population. To
view the wide range of materials available, please use a current browser,
enable Java (TM), and obtain a free browser plug-in for viewing virtual
reality (such as Cosmo Player or Cortona). Early issues of Solstice
were typeset using TeX (TM); both the TeX files, for historical purposes,
and scanned images of printouts from them, for ease in reading, are available
on this site.
book-length documents, as scanned images, concerning mathematical geography.
Original manuscripts are featured here, as are reprints of Solstice from
TeX displayed here as scanned images from printouts.
