mss / GSOC2019 / multiple flight paths and views

View Restoring and Automated Plotting

  • Project description:

    The PyQT Gui of the MSS client can currently handle different views by one flight path. This means ones a new flight path is loaded and activated all views change to this flight path.

    MSS should allow for storing and restoring the view configuration of multiple windows. A mechanism for keeping all views synchronized shall be implemented. Lastly, these views shall be automatically saved into serveral properly named files. This will simplify the updating of meteorological standard plots each day, when the forecast data has updated.

    This necessarily involves a redesign of the PyQT based user interface and the creation of automated testcases for this.
