GSoC #28

I am still not being able to properly figure out how to display liquids like oil in the subsurface.

GSoC #27

TOday was a bad day. I haven't yet managed to implement my "oily" ideas.

GSoC #26

I am so excited today!
Why would anyone want to look in the subsurface until they want to find oil and gas?
I was first thinking of trying to show the fluid nature of oil but realized it is not really necessary. A different colour code/pattern should do. Same goes with gas.

GSoC #25

I am trying to add colour to the hanging wall and footwall of a fault.

I couldn't get much work done during the weekend. Was too tired. I shall post more updates tonight.

GSoC #23

Yay! I mentioned in my previous post that I was stuck with extracting point positions from shapefiles. Well, I was looking for the solution at wrong places. I was directed to a WorldWind class by my mentor which would do the work for me.

Guess, I should ask for help more often.

GSoC #22

I am trying to make more sense of the shapefiles, trying to extract latitude and longitude of points from them. Till now, I haven't found a solution that suits my needs. There are solutions where you can manually get the position data but nothing that can be done automatically.

Argh! I figured out how to draw lines for the fault. I also figured out some mistakes in the way I was approaching display of subsurface pipes.

GSoC #20

I am stuck at making my code for displaying subsurface pipes run properly.
Anyway, the only good thing about last two days was that I made a slight progress on faults. I am slightly doubtful about how to go about displaying rocks.

GSoC #19

I did not realize that I had not added a way to load zipped data. Today I added methods to load zipped data and use it.

GSoC #18

I have the data, the code, but it won't run. :(
Meanwhile, I made progress on faults.

GSoC #17

So, the world cup started. :D

I dropped the idea of working on folds since it is not an important issue. Most relevant folds are above the surface. What matters most below the surface is faults! How else would you have earthquakes?!

So, right now I am working on faults!

GSoC #16

This is the post for the work I did on 9th and 10th. Maybe. I seem to have lost my sense of dates.

So, I was trying to figure out what is wrong with my code for subsurface pipes! And lo behold, I didn't add DetailHint, which is important for showing tiled image layers.

Today is 11th, 2:30 am. I just got data! Now, I will test my code with the data I have received.

GSoC #15

I think I have an improved version of how I implement folds but I have no data to test anything. I will have another attempt at fake data.

GSoC #14

I don't have data yet and neither have I made much progress on folds implementation. But I have already figured out how to implement faults. I hope to get more progress during the weekend.

GSoC #13

Ouch, I forgot to write a blog yesterday. Instead of blaming it on my poor memory and drowsy state I will blame the number 13. ( Bad joke! )

So, yesterday I was just trying to figure out how to implement the folds and I have been told that I will have data for subsurface pipes soon, so it is going to be a test of how bad or good my code is!

GSoC #12

I forgot to write this post last night.
I have started implementing the folds feature about which I was talking in the previous post.
It isn't as straightforward as I thought as I am still noobish with respect to World Wind API.

GSoC #11

Right now, I am trying to figure out how to display folds in an area.
I am taking a rather simplistic approach. I consider the fold to be completely symmetric. So if I have the lateral extent of the fold and the inclination of the arms of the fold, I am good to go. :)
