Summer 2021 TM Development
« on: May 16, 2021, 10:41:31 pm »
It's looking like a tough year for me to find a significant chunk of time to work on TM development this summer.  Summer is shorter by a few weeks due to the delayed Spring semester, and my main focus working on the METAL side's algorithm visualizations with a team of three students will start very soon after I wrap up the semester.  I'll have a short trip just before they start and then I'm looking to do some more significant travel later in the summer.

I do hope to do some TM work, though.  As always, I'm happy to hear what everyone considers the top priorities for improvements to TM, primarily on the web front end.

One nagging issue I'd like to see fixed: where we have distances for routes or route segments, identify them as "approx." or "est." distances. That acknowledges the imprecision inherent in how the system estimates distances, which is worse for some routes than others. One extreme example is HI 360, with a system distance about 25% shorter than the actual length. That's due to hundreds of hairpin curves, which would take hundreds of extra shaping points (not the existing two dozen labeled and shaping points, which are enough to keep the route within lateral tolerance) to bring the system distance closer to actual.

My top priority for web front end is:

#97

It was mentioned earlier in the thread that rankings by system don't exist. Is this new? If so, it would be nice to see the individuals listed at the end of the page similar to the rankings by region. Or is this a programming/display issue?

It is a programming issue. The table was never implemented. There is already an issue in the backlog: Web #97 List of travelers who have traveled a system.


#54

multi-region countries and continents stats #54

Better yet, a country.php and continent.php in addition to region.php. Working the same, just gathering multiple regions together. Still 2 tables for each.

My top priority for web front end is:

#574 Update region.php and system.php could more or less include both.
