    Abstract Today most people get information from a TV. Trust level for television is very high and this kind of media can strongly influence public opinion. To research content watched on TV or public opinion, questioning and other methods are used today and respondents know about the research process. This knowledge forces people to give untruthful answers, because sometimes they don’t want to share their thoughts. This kind of research result is not satisfactory and conclusions can create misconceptions. Fast development of IPTV gives new opportunities for research using collected statistics. To make research legal, all statistical data must be anonymous. If a TV watcher doesn’t think that he has to make a choice, he will watch TV content he is interested in. At the moment there is no one united standard for collecting and processing IPTV statistical data. Each vendor handles data differently. Some solutions do not allow collecting data about watched TV channels and programs. In this paper the author will present a possible, universal method for data collection in a variety of IPTV networks, and different types of streaming and Middleware.

    The paper describes the assessment and mapping of wind climate and environmental conditions of the study region extending from 56.03N 20.2E to 57.22N 21.33E. Maps of wind resources and environmental conditions are the primary method used for presenting the offshore wind resources as well as site conditions data. A GIS database was chosen to house the offshore resources data because the datasets have a significant spatial component. A visualization of the geospatial data is created using the Google Maps platform. The maps datasets consist of gridded 1) climatological information on wind speed and direction, air temperature, air pressure, wind power potential at 10m, 80m, 90m and 100m height; 2) oceanographical information on water temperature, height and direction of sea waves, speed and direction of currents, ice conditions; 3) geological data on bathymetry and sea sediments. The horizontal resolution of the database grid cells is 5 km by 5 km. All the component datasets are spatially referenced to the same spatial base, allowing rapid indexing of the different datasets to each other. A database user may compare information from different datasets in the same geographic location. The GIS database also allows portions of a dataset to be quickly updated as new information becomes available.
