Deliverables for Next Quarter

  • Completed unit tests
  • Identify 3 - 5 science tests for each algorithm, document on AlgorithmDeployment pages, and upload test input files
  • Add moviemaker functionality to StreamingTool
  • Deploy DRMS / DSA data centre prototype


  • Solar Algorithms - Algorithm deployment pages finished, working on unit / science testing, first code (CoronalLoopRecognition) sent to Stanford and LMSAL, initial deployment as CEA algorithms
  • Data Centres - network latency tests complete, DRMS in testing with AstroGrid DSA
  • Visualization tools - prototypes of streaming tool, image gallery and movie maker available

Team Technical Issues

Algorithm unit testing

  • Due 22 December 2006 - thorough CuTest unit tests for each function in all algorithms. Upload code with tests to CVS and specify which files have completed unit tests on AlgorithmDeployment pages.

Algorithm science testing

  • Due 22 December 2006 - identify and document 3 to 5 total science tests for each algorithm. Add test input files and short description of science test with expected output to AlgorithmDeployment pages.

Algorithm documentation

  • Ongoing - ensure that documentation in all code follows the eSDO CCodingStandard. Upload a README file to CVS for each algorithm that includes
    • Short description of algorithm
    • List of inputs / outputs
    • Notice of any external libraries required, plus weblinks where possible
    • Notes for building / compiling with a make file

Community Awareness

  • TrySoftwareDetail page will contain short list of algorithms, visualization tools and data centre prototypes that can be tried now. TrySoftwareDetail will contain instructions and examples.
  • Request links to TrySoftwareDetail pages at Lindau, JSOC, VSO, etc.
  • It should be publicized which algorithms / visualization tools will work with existing datasets from TRACE, SOHO, Solar-B, etc.
  • Continue awareness raising with wiki page, conference presentations, conference "taster sessions", Solar News articles, and highlighting the need for eSDO tools.
