Localizer
INSTRUMENT LANDING SYSTEM LOCALIZER (short: LOCALIZER ) is a system of horizontal guidance in the instrument landing system , which is used to guide aircraft along the axis of the runway. Each radio station or system shall be classified by the service in which it operates permanently or temporarily. See also Main articles: Radio station and Radiocommunication service
Radiocommunication service
CONTENTS * 1 Principle of operation * 2 Carrier frequency pairings for localizer and glide slope * 3 Localizer in cockpit * 4 Localizer at runways * 5 Specifications * 6 See also * 7 References * 8 External links PRINCIPLE OF OPERATIONIn aviation, a LOCALIZER is the lateral component of the instrument landing system (ILS) for the runway centreline when combined with the vertical glide slope , not to be confused with a locator , although both are parts of aviation navigation systems. A localizer (like a glideslope) works as a cooperation between the transmitting airport runway and the receiving cockpit instruments. An older aircraft without ILS receiver cannot take advantage of any ILS facilities at any runway, and much more importantly, the most modern aircraft have no use of their ILS instruments at runways which lack ILS facilities. In parts of Africa and Asia large airports may lack any kind of transmitting ILS system

Land Claim
LAND CLAIM(S) are a legal declaration of desired control over areas of property including bodies of water. The phrase is usually only used with respect to disputed or unresolved land claims. Some types of land claims include aboriginal land claims , Antarctic land claims , and post-colonial land claims. Land claims is sometimes used as a term when referring to disputed territories like Western Sahara or to refer to the claims of displaced persons. In the colonial times of the United States American men could claim a piece of land for themselves and the claim has different level of merit according to the de facto conditions: * claim without any action on the ground * claim with (movable) property of the claimant on the ground * claim with the claimant visiting the land * claim with claimant living on the land.Today, only small areas of unclaimed land remain, yet large plots of land with little economical value (e.g., in Alaska) can still be bought for very low prices. Also, in certain parts of the world, land can still be obtained by making productive use of it. MINING CLAIM (UNITED STATES)A MINING CLAIM is the claim of the right to extract minerals from a tract of public land. In the United States, the practice began with the California gold rush of 1849. In the absence of effective government, the miners in each new mining camp made up their own rules, and chose to essentially adopt Mexican mining law then in effect in California

Locator Map
A LOCATOR MAP, sometimes referred to simply as a locator, is typically a simple map used in cartography to show the location of a particular geographic area within its larger and presumably more familiar context. Depending on the needs of the cartographer, this type of map can be used on its own or as an inset or addition to a larger map. CONTENTS * 1 Purpose * 2 Common uses * 2.1 Education
Education
* 2.2 Interactive applications * 2.3 Commerce * 2.3.1 Corporate web sites * 2.3.2 Direct marketing * 3 References PURPOSEArthur Robinson , an American cartographer influential in thematic cartography , stated that a map not properly designed "will be a cartographic failure." Any map that does not take its audience into account by assuming too much reader knowledge about the map area's context will not fulfill its purpose. Location maps help achieve this purpose by familiarizing the reader with the location of an area they may not have read about previously. A good understanding of the audience's mental map for a particular area is critical for a proper application of location maps. Used on their own, location maps do not differ significantly from traditional maps, differing primarily in the fact that solitary locator maps focus the attention on a single location within the map frame, where traditional maps generally seek to portray a multitude of features across the entire frame

Locator Software
An ONLINE LOCATOR SERVICE (also known as LOCATION FINDER, STORE FINDER, or STORE LOCATOR, or similar) is a feature found on websites of businesses with multiple locations that allows visitors to the site to find locations of the business within proximity of an address or postal code or within a selected region. Types of businesses that often have this feature include chain retailers , hotels , restaurants , and other businesses that can be found in multiple metropolitan areas . The locator also provides important information about each location, including its address, phone number, hours of operation, services provided, and sometimes directions to the location. On many sites, searches can be narrowed to locations providing certain services not provided at all locations (e.g. 24-hour operation, handicap accessibility, pharmacies). Location finders often operate in conjunction with a well-known online map service, such as Google Maps , MapQuest , or Bing Maps , allowing the user to see on a map where the particular location is found on a map. SOFTWAREStore locators use locator software in order to allow visitors to find nearby stores and business locations. In a common form, a visitor inputs a ZIP code and the locator returns all locations in a database within a specified radius

Maidenhead Locator System
The MAIDENHEAD LOCATOR SYSTEM also QTH or QRA grid system (deprecated) is a geographic co-ordinate system used by amateur radio operators to succinctly describe their locations. Its purpose is to be concise, accurate and robust in the face of interference and adverse transmission conditions. The Maidenhead
Maidenhead
Locator System can describe locations anywhere in the world, and replaced the previous QRA locator system which was limited to European contacts . Maidenhead
Maidenhead
locators are also commonly referred to as QTH Locator, grid locators or grid squares, although the "squares" are distorted on any non-equirectangular cartographic projection . Use of the terms QTH locator and QRA locator was initially discouraged, as it caused confusion with the older QRA locator system. The only abbreviation recommended to indicate a Maidenhead

reference in Morse code and radio teleprinter transmission was "LOC", as in "LOC KN28LH". Dr. John Morris G4ANB originally devised the system and it was adopted at a meeting of the VHF Working Group in Maidenhead

Record Locator
A RECORD LOCATOR is an alphanumeric or alpha code, typically 6 characters in length, used in airline reservation systems to access a specific record. When a passenger , travel agent or airline employee refers to a record locator they typically mean a pointer to a specific reservation which is known as a Passenger
Passenger
Name Record or PNR. However, a record locator can point at records containing other forms of data. Record locators are unique within a given system at a specific point in time. Because the number of character combinations in 6 characters is finite (albeit very large) record locators get reused once the data to which it refers has been purged from the system. Because 1, I and L can be confused (also 0 and o) these characters are not always used in record locators. The pool of available character combinations is further reduced because the locator is actually a location address and there are rules about what character combinations can be used for such addresses. Because the term record locator is usually used to refer to a PNR the two terms can become confused. When a reservation is made a PNR is created in the system used by the person making the booking. This PNR will have a record locator. If the booking has been made through the airline and the only flight(s) are operated by the airline making the reservation only one PNR will exist

Uniform Resource Locator
A UNIFORM RESOURCE LOCATOR (URL), colloquially termed a WEB ADDRESS, is a reference to a web resource that specifies its location on a computer network and a mechanism for retrieving it. A URL is a specific type of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), although many people use the two terms interchangeably. URLs occur most commonly to reference web pages (http ), but are also used for file transfer (ftp ), email (mailto ), database access (JDBC ), and many other applications. Most web browsers display the URL of a web page above the page in an address bar . A typical URL could have the form http://www.example.com/index.html, which indicates a protocol (http), a hostname (www.example.com), and a file name (index.html).

Acoustic Location
ACOUSTIC LOCATION is the science of using sound to determine the distance and direction of its source or reflector. Location can be done actively or passively, and can take place in gases (such as the atmosphere), liquids (such as water), and in solids (such as in the earth). * Active acoustic location involves the creation of sound in order to produce an echo, which is then analyzed to determine the location of the object in question. * Passive acoustic location involves the detection of sound or vibration created by the object being detected, which is then analyzed to determine the location of the object in question.Both of these techniques, when used in water, are known as sonar ; passive sonar and active sonar are both widely used. Acoustic mirrors and dishes, when using microphones, are a means of passive acoustic localization, but when using speakers are a means of active localization. Typically, more than one device is used, and the location is then triangulated between the several devices. As a military air defense tool, passive acoustic location was used from mid-World War I to the early years of World War II
World War II
to detect enemy aircraft by picking up the noise of their engines. It was rendered obsolete before and during World War II
World War II
by the introduction of radar , which was far more effective (but interceptable)

Non-directional Beacon
A NON-DIRECTIONAL (RADIO) BEACON (NDB) is a radio transmitter at a known location, used as an aviation or marine navigational aid. As the name implies, the signal transmitted does not include _inherent_ directional information, in contrast to other navigational aids such as low frequency radio range , VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) and TACAN . NDB signals follow the curvature of the Earth , so they can be received at much greater distances at lower altitudes, a major advantage over VOR. However, NDB signals are also affected more by atmospheric conditions, mountainous terrain, coastal refraction and electrical storms, particularly at long range.

Each NDB is identified by a one, two, or three-letter Morse code callsign

Locator Outer Marker
A MARKER BEACON is a particular type of VHF radio beacon used in aviation , usually in conjunction with an instrument landing system (ILS), to give pilots a means to determine position along an established route to a destination such as a runway . According to Article 1.107 of the International Telecommunication Union´s (ITU) ITU Radio Regulations (RR) a marker beacon is defined as A transmitter in the aeronautical radionavigation service which radiates vertically a distinctive pattern for providing position information to aircraft.

They are now very gradually being phased out of service, especially in more developed parts of the world, as GPS
