My name is Børre Ludvigsen which is also spelt "Borre" and
"Barre" depending on what's most convenient.
Finger me at work and at home.
I'm an associate professor teaching third year students at Østfold Regional College. While my course is popularly called "multimedia", it's more closely related to a field under development titled "information architecture". IA is the process of designing, planning and producing information environments, where both digital processing and the character of informational content are considered equally important in forming interfaces and environments where information moves and resides.
As I find the time, I might add a short biography, some articles that might be of interest and various bits and pieces I find interesting and would like to share with visitors to our virtual home.
Here's a sample (51Kb) from NOAA 11's IR channel during an early morning pass on January 17, 1991. You'll notice that land is lighter than water. That's because the warmer temperatures are dark and the colder white. Although there is some noise, this is a fairly clear picture of Scandinavia and where we live from 800 km up.
And this image (36Kb) is sample from NOAA 11's IR channel on the "noon" pass of February 5, 1994. It shows clearly ice settling into the Baltic, cloud cover over southern Scandinavia and clear skies over the central part of our country.
2 NOAA 11 visible channel passes from August 1, 1994 . This is a combination picture, about 406K of great summer weather.
