Matjaž Drolc, 21yo physics student from Slovenia. I’ve been programming
As mentioned, I’ve been developing an application that visualizes surface measurements. The most notable feature is a simple level of detail mechanism that loads data segments depending on the scale of the X-axis (in other directions number of vertices is fixed and small enough to not require any LOD mechanism). When working on this project I’ve had to browse through a lot of THREE.js source code ( http://mrdoob.github.com/three.js/ ) so I’m familiar with some of it’s internals and the concept of scene graph. Here’s a screenshot http://drola.si/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/posnetek1.png .
For GSoC I’m deciding between two projects. One is implementation and improvements of triangulation techniques which is very exciting but given time constraints it’s probably more appropriate for somebody with stronger computer science background. The other project that caught my eye is implementation of WMTS imagery provider.
I’ve already set up Eclipse and successfully run Cesium on my local computer. I also took a quick glance over code for WebMapServiceImageryProvider. In the forthcoming days I will try to get through specifications of both standards to get a better understanding of how they differ and on base of that knowledge I’ll assess what new code is needed and put together a draft of proposal. On the basis on articles in your wiki I understand that unit tests and documentation are as important as the implementation itself so I’ll reserve significant amount of time to work on that too.
If you read through all of this, thank you and please feel free to respond with any comments, suggestions, recommended reading etc.
Have a nice day,
