Status Report for October 15, 2009

Previous Month Next Month


Guide on Reporting Percentage Completed:

For software development tasks,

  • use 0% if the solution is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the solution's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the solution is implemented and tested within the Ticket branch;
  • use 75% if the implementation review is complete, the Ticket branch has been merged onto the Trunk branch, and the Ticket is closed.
  • use 100% if the affected Trunk packages are tagged and released.

For other tasks, still use these increments, but apply their meaning as best as possible.

Note: Please place an asterisk (*) after the percent if you updated this value in this report.

*Percent updated in this report

Comments: Main activity at this point is to iterate with Tim to focus on desired functionality to support evaluation the software against the data quality goals set. Worked with both Tim and Gregory on an initial response, commented on Tim's goals page. Need to set up a meeting with Tim in Tucson.

Other Activities

  • attended most weekly Apps, DC3 meetings
  • attended ADASS meeting in Sapporo; some 3D data vis techniques may be promising for summarizing SDQA data at a human-scannable level.
  • Worked with Suzy on Ops Plan feedback.

S. Dodd, R. Cutri, L Armus

Reported 10/19/09

  • Completed and are tracking Apps schedule for DC3b. Waiting on Jeff to integrate into overall schedule and due resource loading across DM.

  • Provided comments to Dave Silva on version 4 of LSST Operations Plan drafts
  • Finalized FY10 LSST funding for IPAC with Jeff
  • Attended DC3, Applications, SAT, MOPS and DM Management telecons.

  • Lee Armus and Suzy talked with Tim about science validation needs for DC3b. Lee will review the Science Requirements Document and make suggestions on how best to test for these requirements.
  1. Dodd: Plans for next month
  • Track and Update Apps Plan as inputs come in. Work with Jeff and David to get integrated DC3b schedule published.
  • Hold at least one Applications software Design Review

  • Support Final Design Phase review as needed
  • Continue review of LSST Operations Plan drafts

Other Activities

  • Merged afw ticket #833 to trunk: "Add a 'normalize' flag to convolveLinear
  • Acted as a guinea pig for the first automated test of software on this merge, providing feedback to make the reports more useful.
  • Got coadd_psfmatched running. It seems to produce good coadds. Remaining work:
    • Add a pipeline stage implementation (needs collaboration with K-T Lim)
    • Remove hacks once ticket #912 is fixed
    • Call a full psf-fitting routine from ip_diff once one is available
    • Add outlier rejection, if this is in scope for DC3b
  • Enhanced coadd_utils, adding functions for coadd_psfmatched and improving the API
  • Resolved ticket #936: Fix type names in Kernel to meet standard

which included various cleanups including getting rid of unnecessary class KernelList? and removing a bunch of hard tabs in afw.

  • Implemented first cut of coadd_chisquared. No unit tests or stage code yet. I am getting odd results from AB's psf-matching software and I need to resolve that before I can evaluate the quality of the coadd.
  1. Owen: Plans for next month:
  • Improve PSF matching (this is AB's code, but at the moment I don't know if my problems are user error or bugs in his code).
  • Test chisquared coadd, e.g. plot histogram of pixel values against plot of standard chisquared distribution
  • Test psf-matched coadd, e.g. try to measure the improvement in S/N
  • Work on some of the coadd_psfmatched issues mentioned above
  • Work on afw tickets such as #930: Please add clone method to Kernel, Function1 and Function2 classes
