-- Provisional Patent Update --
For the one-year provisional patent of the Map Quadrant System, add
these to the applications: eyeball-able control with optional voice
interface, and text terminal shell account and command line versions.
Also, make versions of it that work with EMACS and VI. Include aircraft
and aerospace applications as well as vehicles in general including cars
and trucks and aircraft carriers and ships and submarines, etc.
Eventually it might be useful in flying cars and self-driving vehicles
including electric vehicles and transportation (including the Department
of Transit and the United States Geographical Survey) navigation
systems. It could run on a webpage and app and a script-able command
line program on PDA's and smartphones and tablet computers and netbooks
and laptops and desktops and server computers and supercomputers. It can
also work with non-standard maps and digitized photos to zoom-in, and
should include markers for each point of interest and landmarks and be
able to calculate the distance between them. The Map Quadrant System can
also be compatibly applied to space based astronomy telescopes and
various kinds of satellites and ground-based telescope systems and
possibly radio telescopes. It can also be used as a computer-vision
guidance system for stationary and mobile robots.

-- MQS Applications, Offline Example, and Encryption Example --
Applications continued:
The Map Quadrant System can also be used in a graphical user interface,
such as for visualization and guidance and control of its various
applications including nanotechnology, visualization and guidance and
control of biotechnology (such as vaccines and molecular visualization),
and nano-biotechnology. It can also be used in pharmaceutical research
and cognitive neuroscience and cognitive neurogenetics and genetic
engineering, including medical science and chemistry and biology and
Earth sciences, physics, and material science.
Offline example:
As an offline example, the map can be on an offline computer or made of
paper, and start out by choosing a location on the big map. Then
crosshairs can be drawn over the map to break it into quadrants, then
break the location's quadrant into progressively smaller quadrants
within quadrants, etc., zooming in as necessary until there is a
succinct quadrant letter string that represents the location. Pages of
an atlas book can also have quadrant rectangles drawn over it or on
transparency sheets to utilize closer and closer map images. Then that
letter string can be relayed over a shell account or the phone or
internet or an intranet or computer memory or printout or out loud or in
writing by hand or through the mail to send the location to anyone
anywhere.
Encryption example:
If 1,2,3,4 numbering is used instead of A, B, C, D lettering then it
would be very easy to encrypt such as by multiplying the string of
base-4 numbers by another number as though it were a base-10 number to
begin with, then to decrypt it just divide the encrypted number by the
number that was multiplied by the base-4 number string.

MQS Location Encryption Example Update
It turns out that my MQS Encryption Example might not truly be
encryption because a computer could try dividing the encrypted number by
all numbers that yield a quotient that is composed of the base four
numbers {1,2,3,4}, and the potential candidates from that list would be
ones that yield small quadrants that have a city or other location of
interest inside them. So the MQS Encryption Example might still be
decipherable, such as from that kind of brute force attack, but I still
think that it might still be secure if the {1,2,3,4} number sequence is
multiplied by a number that has a finite decimal or finite fractional
part. Otherwise, a random number scratch pad modulo base 10
diagonalization added one digit to each base four number would be a more
appropriate way to encrypt it. Then to decrypt it, the random number's
digits would get subtracted from the diagonalization to turn it back
into a base-4 number string representing a Map Quadrant System
(quadrants within quadrants) location.

MQS Location Encryption Update #2
If the location's {1,2,3,4} number string is to be encrypted, the
multiplier should contain exponents of the numbers two and three and
four. That way, even if the length of the location's number string is
known, the multiplier key would be hidden and unknowable. Also, if the
location's number string length is known, say for example "1324", that
is a length of four base four numbers and each could be a 1 or a 2 or a
3 or a 4, so the number of possibilities for it are 4*4*4*4 = 256. So in
that example there are 256 possibilities, but in reality it might zoom
in by 4^10 or more, which is over one-million possibilities, and the
base four number length can easily be obscured by making the encryption
multiplier key a length of ten or more digits long or at least more
digits than there are base four numbers in the quadrant string. Also, it
would be even more obscure if the encryption multiplier key has a
decimal portion to it. Even if the multiplier key is ten or more digits
long, the encrypted quadrant string would still be far less symbols than
a pair of unencrypted GPS Coordinates.
