Week of 6 Feb to 12 Feb:
We met with our client, Jack Snoeyink,
last Wednesday (2/2) for the first time. We talked about the basics of
the project and drew up an initial version of our contract. This Wednesday,
our team met from 5:00 to 6:00, and discussed the following objectives:
- Kwan Skinner briefly talked about the advantages of using GLUI with
OpenGL for the implementation. He has used it before, and said it interfaces
well with OpenGL.
- The group also briefly talked about filling out our timesheets for last month (January), and what objectives were completed
then. - Then, the group discussed rough ideas for scheduling our project,
with all objectives, including research, documentation, design, coding,
and testing considered.
- Brad Timmers led the charge to draw up initial versions of our Work Breakdown Structure and Pert Chart. The design of
the Pert Chart involved deciding on what objectives could be done at the
same time, and which ones needed completion before other tasks.
- The group decided that a Gantt Chart would be difficult to draw up at this
time because exact time estimates would be difficult.
- The group discussed
briefly ideas for a name for our project, as well as an icon to represent
the map drawing tool. For about the next week or two, we will be researching
Tcl/TK, FLTK, GLUI, and OpenGL, to decide on what would be best to use
for the implementation of our map drawing tool. A secondary goal for the
next week would be to discuss the design and makeup of the user
