Weekly update 7

Post date: Jan 31, 2014 3:31:48 PM

This has been another week of incremental advances. I continue to work on revisions to my first manuscript and hope to send it out fairly soon. At the same time I am reviewing and editing my second manuscript. The figure I posted a couple weeks ago is going to undergo a major change, but I havent gotten to that yet. I spent one day trying to alter someone else's code to incorporate into my GIS tool. As it turns out, it's somewhere between exactly what I expected (and that difficult) and somewhat unexpected (and a bit easier). It may all be for naught, since I expect the addition to make the GIS tool infinitely slower. We'll see!

Because I like pictures, here's one that was in my morning presentation that I made entirely with PowerPoint clip-art and 3D effects. It is supposed to show that different types of infrastructure affect one another in terms of where we're placing them. I'll leave it to you to figure out how that works.
