Fwd: [Ieee_vis] IEEE VIS 2014 CFP: VAST Challenge


The below forwarded message has details about the upcoming 2014 IEEE VAST Challenge.  Basically it's a data
processing contest with three big exercises that relate to understanding and visualizing data.  If
anyone is seriously interested in forming a team, let me know.  Several of the tools implemented for the
contest could easily turn into useful BRL-CAD data processing tools.  Even if not as a team, individuals
can get involved as well if anyone is casually interested.

Cheers!
Sean

Challenge to test your skills. These challenges feature a mix of data types, including text,
transaction, network, and geospatial / temporal. This year’s challenge also features a first for the
VAST Challenge - a streaming text dataset for you to analyze.

GSOC 2014

   Hi, Sean! First of all thank you for your link advice. Now I am studying some patches from previous years. I hope that this will help me improve my skills and make me understanding the BRL-CAD code. I also  involved in the GSOC 2014. My proposal is about the Vector Drawings from NURBS, which I edited at your recomandation.

Proposal Withdraw

Hello Everyone,

    I am withdrawing my GSoC proposal. It simply isn't possible for me to commit the attention that is required for the project to succeed. I already have huge backlog of tasks that I should complete, and they keep piling up.
    I wish good luck to the rest of the candidates.

Advices

                  Hi! Through this e-mail I would like to ask you for help or just some tips so I can understand better the BRL-CAD code. I apologize for not being more involved, but, lately, I have been dealing with my mid-term exams. So far, I have been studying some of "Contribuitor Quickies" tasks. I do have some ideas of how to solve them, but the main problem is in the implementation code ( I really need to get to know more about BRL-CAD code). I would appreciate if you would give me some step-by-step advice. I really appriciate any help you can provide.

Next GSoC deadline and patch question

Hi,

when student selections is ending? It's a pity but I have university courses in next two days and I should postpone working on timeline to Thursday. Can I do this?

And next thing: old GCI rt_rhc_vol function seems a little weird to me. There is a lot of unused variables, for example. Isn't here correct easy equation "Volume = baseArea * height"? If solution isn't correct, why you say that "this task has been completed successfully"?

Last thing: I'm sorry about my initial working speed, but I needed to learn a lot things about programming in large projects. Now is definetely better than two days ago. I can easily modify and compile BRL-CAD, extract and apply patches etc. And I learned working with documentation.

GSoC comment reply

You didn't tell me that I will answer here or on google-melange so finally I'm writing also here.

Of course if one-week schedule is better I will try write it. Work is in progress...

Before 19th May I have about three days/week free. I'm started learning about this "large complicated production code base". It's not very easy, but I'm enjoying it. For this moment I finished tutorial from http://en.flossmanuals.net/contributors-guide-to-brl-cad/ . Now I will start with some very easy task - actually I found that "rt_thc_volume" function is not implemented. Do you think it's good idea to start with it and integrate it with "analyze" mged command? I tried analyze rhc primitive and it doesn't returned volume.

What's about my working hours: I think that I will spend 40-45 hours by default, but in special cases, when it will be necessary I can also work one hour more in week and spend Saturday on coding. But it definetely shouldn't be standard working hours.

I've tried to contact with you via IRC yesterday and today but I haven't got reply.

Ref: Sean's Log Message for Rev 60262 (./src/liboptical/turb.c)

Quote: it'd be nice to have a bigger table or know the generator+seed
that produced it

Since I'm not helping with GSoC I thought I would take a stab at that
challenge and wrote a Perl prog to look at the set of numbers.

The first thing I discovered is that there should be 8,000 numbers in
the 3D array but there are four missing (see my comment in the file at
revision 60397).

But I'm proceeding with my investigation...

Best regards,

-Tom

patch on materials database project

Hello !

I have been working on the Materials Database since I have proposed. I
have thoroughly explored the code and found a scope of improvement.
The code had been written with a view of using the brlcad.org website
but this at present poses some problems. It redirects the user to
brlcad.org which(at present) does not show the desired results.

So I have made the required changes by including the config.php file
which contains a variable $siteUrl. It is included in the files which
require to change the path. I have given the relative paths(no hard
code) which makes the code portable and workable everywhere. I have
deployed it for testing on my college server.

Although I have kept the BRL-CAD coding guidelines in mind yet I saw
some code(prior years work) which is not according to the standards
sought. I would also change the whole code accordingly if it is
required for the patch submission.

Please review the working code with changes:

Output displayed on MGED Command Window

Hi!

I am trying to solve one bug, when we give nirt command , the output is displayed on command window. Which files are exactly responsible for this output.
bu_vls_printf is also adding "Firing at view center" string, manipulating this string doesnot change the output. Which file is actually printing the Firing from view center and other  output information? Please help.

Location: src/libged/nirt.c


Thanks
Aditi
