Senior Project - TheThing


User Friendly Interface to Ice Motion Analysis Workstation

Senior Project: 1989-1990
Matthew Leonard, Michael Matthies and Andrew Shapiro
Boulder, CO

To effectively perform analysis on satellite images of ice and open water in an "automatic" sense, it is important to provide an interface that allows the operator of the system to know how the system is performing, what problems it is having, and provide easy access to application programs for solving those problems. This project allowed an operator to interactively develop a graphical representation of the workstation's software components and their current status, with indications of the type(s) of processing currently being executed, how much of the processing has been completed, and some indication when there is a problem with the processing. The project, developed using an object-oriented approach and an X Window System interface, was designed to easily allow the monitoring of arbitrary systems, rather than just the particular system represented by the ice motion analysis workstation.
