  • 4:30 – 5:15 Dominique with Mike, Nik, Judy (and others) – to view differing shading (topographic enhancement) options with Dominique’s US map, as shown with topography by Mike’s shader program.  Discuss how/when/what to integrate with VISTAS.  Discuss problem of scaling up/down spatial extent.
  • wrt Christoph’s visualization work:  Jenny, Kendra and a Willamette undergraduate are also meeting that day to explore enhancements and finalization of his WebGL application.

Objectives of the meetings are:

  1. Prioritize development efforts for next 3-6 months.
  2. Set date for when development on some of the above items must be complete so that collaborators can prepare materials for May All Hands Retreat.
  3. Begin discussion of if, and if so how, VISTAS will be maintained after December 31, 2015 (end of our current NSF grant).  Ask:  what of VISTAS is most valuable to you, and what do you wish to keep working?
