Also target selection and properties are available through the menu. The hazard and the speed Warner have also acoustically during the optical drive and on request Speed violations and speed traps there. The application interface is in two versions: Classic and modern. The interface for the communication with other programs (API) is simple, intuitive and offers many ways of interacting.
So the navigation system can be, for example, with a Dispositionsapplikation, to manage the orders to driver and much more. PTV Navigator 8 is one of the first navigation systems, which focuses on the eco-tax in France. The routes the driver can install as also the toll on the eco-tax routes display, the number of kilometres of these sections, as well as eco-tax service stations, a black box for the settlement. Also helpful: Just as toll are also eco-tax routes of navigation as far as possible, avoid. Source: PTV AG

All participants receive the biodiversity hiking pass and thus can win attractive prizes in the contest of the day. We produce digital maps for a year for mobile devices.
With our range of LiveWorld, the mobile phone is but also to the facilitators of knowledge, E.g. on biodiversity. As modern information technology can contribute to nature conservation”, says the Managing Director of gistum, Arno Behlau. During the hike, the cell phone of geological formations and the resulting flora informed. We will demonstrate how this works, this hike to the Sweden ski jump.” Meeting point for the hike is Sweden ski jump at 14:30 at the parking lot of the mountain inn.

The increasing development of the tropical rain forests through streets, but also the highway construction and the urban sprawl of the landscapes in Germany are two examples. So unnatural barriers are human created, isolated by the animals and plants. Thus, the reproduction makes it difficult and preventing gene flow. This increases the likelihood of off death for one and on the other the wealth of nature is reduced, to adapt to changing climate conditions. The development of green infrastructure is regarded as important approach against the Habitat fragmentation”(“Green Infrastructure”). That expanding reserve land to the part. Existing corridors and stepping stone habitats that act as connecting elements in the landscape, must be protected or newly created. This allows the flora and fauna on diversion and migratory movements. Is to protect biological diversity, must will necessarily large undisturbed landscapes and Habitat network systems.
