Down the Chute: When vendor selections tank

March 31, 2006 7:00 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

The sane always prevail Randy C. Hice I recently read online an opinion by a LIMS salesperson who lamented that some consultants "…only recommend(s) (vendor A or vendor B) because those are the systems they know and can support." That's a drive-by kneecapping of legitimate consultants in general, and reflects a specific ignorance for the consulting business.

How to Control the Earth and Other Arcana: A look at popular geopositioning tools

March 31, 2006 7:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments

Past columns have examined online map resources. These have ranged from topographic map sources to travel information sites such as MapBlaster and MapQuest. In most cases, these applications were designed for manual data input over the Web. Some of the more recent additions to this class, such as TerraServer, Yahoo! Maps and Google Maps, provide an application program interface (API) in addition to the manual interface.

StatXact: Statistical Software for Exact Nonparametric Inference

March 31, 2006 7:00 pm | by John A. Wass, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

StatXact is software for conducting exact statistical tests, confidence intervals and power/sample size calculations. For the non-initiated, these are tests that calculate exact p-values from compilations of tables, giving more extreme values than a given cutoff table. These are to be contrasted with p-values based upon asymptotic theory that requires very large samples and a normal distribution.
