SOCIS - 1. Status report

I'm currently participating in SOCIS and I code for Marble. My task is to implement a usable image and panorama viewer based on the standards of the kml language. More precisely I work on the correct handling of the <PhotoOverlay> tag.

My plan is to follow the example of Google Earth, so I dropped out the old PhotoOverlay visualisation method of Marble (just drawing the image to the screen) and approached the problem from a different way.

A PhotoOverlay is marked with a clickable placemark which shows a little popup information dialog when you click on it now. It displays the preview of the image and some information which can be specified under a <PhotoOverlay> object like name, description and location.

Here are some screenshots:

I used the content of to create the screenshots.

For next, I will improve this with actually opening the photo, and visualising it in Marble as a zoomable, pannable plain image.

To be continued...

The Earth, on Android

In the previous month I worked on compiling Marble widget to Android. It was a long and hard road but it is here:

(I shot this screenshot on my phone)
The globe can be rotated, and the user can zoom with the usual zooming gesture. Here is a short video example:

The hardest part was to figure out, how to compile everything with cmake instead of qmake and Qt Creator. There are some very basic things what can sabotage your successfully packaged and deployed app. For example if you did not set a version number in cmake for your library...
As you maybe know Marble also uses some elements of QtWebKit, but this is not supported on Android. So I introduced some dummy classes to substitute these (of course, not in their useability) to be able to compile Marble for Android.

SunPy - X-ray VIsibility Synthesis ImagiNg or Xray-VISION - SoCiS 2017

I am pleased to inform you  this summer I am going to work on to create a library for SunPy which enables to create interpretable maps in cases of when the base lines for synthesis images are not following a regular pattern. This library's focus will be to compensate the effect of such cases.

You can find more details about the topic in this article.

Also the upper link contains the reference for the first algorithm (CLEAN) what I am going to implement. My current status is that playing around with little aspects of this task and I try to come up with a good concept how to actually do it. So I spend most of my time reading about it. And thinking about how to do it in a good way. :)

My little bit "more technical" proposal for this summer can be found here at github.

And at the end, I would like to thank for the SunPy community and ESA that I can participate in this program this summer. I hope my work is going to reach the expectations :)

So keep tuned, my next post will c…
