Last couple of weeks have been really busy. I have been dividing my time with work for my application and work for University. The last exams and essays are over and done with. Now I can concentrate fully to my coding.
My coding has been a deep plunge to Python and mathematics. Understanding the principles with the xkcd geohashing algorithms and researching for geographical tools and methods. Google has been a dear source for me lately. It’s knowledge I need and search engines give it to me rather easily. I have also raided a couple of my friends offices out of their books on Python and Qt. During this time I’ve been working with my assigned project mentor quite a lot, getting help with some obstacles that had gotten me stuck.
I established an Github repository for my project. I’ll be sharing and managing my code there from now on, so you all can go and take a look of what I’m coming up with. At this point there isn’t that much, but I have a lot of things brewing in my mind.
Geohash algorithm, Midgard, location(partly), distance between points, checking for internet connection.
What doesn’t wok:
Social features, bearing, map, and GUI
And this week, ill be concentrating on bearing and the map component
suski, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is:
Today’s Geohash is in Lahti (60.8959922841, 25.9775894322), some 88 km away from you
