The Ordnance Surveys are now using aerial photography coupled with detailed checking on the
Rock Cycle Animation (Interactive)
The rock cycle has no beginning and no end. Rather, it is an ongoing cycle in which rock — driven by tectonic processes such as volcanoes and earthquakes, the surface processes of weathering and erosion, and compaction — is created and destroyed. In this visualization and collection of animations from McDougal Littell/TERC, follow rock from its origins as magma through other stages of the cycle.

Pedagogical text indexation and exploitation for language learning
In this article we present the MIRTO platform -under development at the University Stendhal of Grenoble- and how it addresses common flaws of CALL software. This platform led to another project: the creation of a pedagogically indexed text base. We introduce here the notion of pedagogical indexation, and confront the particular case of pedagogical indexation for language learning with the existing pedagogical
