In todays call we discussed the need for new types of graphs in STEM.|
1. Ability to Model on Lattices
2. Addition of a better map of Europe
3. How to maintain and expose a variety of maps in the designer perspective
4. How to free STEM of the requirement that we have a fixed set of polygons. We want to visualize maps but we could, for example, define a higher resolution map of Europe without polygons and just draw cricles.
5. Other Tesselations of the world
1) Regarding lattices, STEM already has a little button on top of the menu bar that looks like a lattice with nodes and edges. This is the create graph button and right now it launches a wizard that creates and empty graph (all you can do is name it). You can try this button today. Ideally when you press the button the wizard should allow the user some options one of which would be square lattice with a way to specify number of rows and edges. This will then appear in the project explorer and it can be dragged into a users project.
2) The big issue with a better map of Europe is finding data available with an EPL friendly license. We are working in this.
3) Suggestions? Using the new graph button we can in principle enable a variety of graph creation algorithms programatically (not just lattices but also tesselations)
5) See 3 above.
