Distributome Project Updates: October 10, 2011

  • Latest Distributome Navigator is now completely functioning and uses the new Distributome.xml XML DB/XSD — albeit it’s a bit buggy, but we’ll resolve these in the next 1-2 weeks.
  • I drafted a Navigator (V.2) redesign mock-ups. See these images:
    • Example 1
    • Example 2
    • We’re working on implementing this (hope to get it for the SAB meeting, but in the worst case we can show the current HTML5 version (V.1) and the redesign blueprints.
  • Reconciling the Old XML DB and the New XML DB. This is a bit of a challenge. We have 2 grads working on this, but they are not quite up to par yet. Any help with grads that are well-trained in probabilistically and computationally (e.g., Web-discovery and XML syntax) would be greatly appreciated. Basically, we need to expand the New Distributome.xml using the old meta-data and includes the number of nodes/relations in the graph.
  • Cleaned and updated the Distributome.xml syntax to pass the Distributome XML/DB Validator and allow more functionality.
  • All code (HTML, XML, JS) is on SVN, includes log-change.
  • There are 2 critical things to achieve in Fall’11.
    • SAB progress/demo/vision
    • Distributome utilization in classroom.
