This week I’ve focused primarily on drafting my final paper. So far I have a general outline of my paper (abstract –> introduction –> related work –> framework and design –> implementation –> conclusions and future work), and I’ve fully drafted the abstract, introduction, and related work sections. I have a clear idea of what I want to go in each of the other sections, so I should be able to have those sections fully drafted by this time next week.
In terms of the software development component of the project, I almost have a complete (although not especially fancy or sophisticated) visualization tool, but I have spent most of the last week making lots of progress at getting nowhere. All I absolutely need at this point is to figure out how to make a call to the function GdipDrawText, but because gdip is the way python handles GDI+ — a component of .NET made to work for C, C++, and C#, the documentation on it is fuzzy and somewhat sparse. I still have a couple of ideas to try, though, and I’m trying to find people who have experience using it.
