I’m working on a project where I have to try to estimate the real-world position of points/items from two or more images. Although I’ve never been bad at math, I’m struggling to remember how some computations are done (matrix / vector calculations specifically). It’s been quite a while ago, but I just sent a draft of some calculations to my professor, who – as I’ve been told by two former graduate students – will really make time for your questions and problems. Since it’s a Thursday now and I’ll meet him next Wednesday, there’s not a doubt in my mind that he’ll review it for me before then. That’s a great feeling 🙂
In the meantime, I’ve started writing my project management plan. I’m trying to include all the things they want me to document, while at the same time doing it in such a way that it doesn’t make me think “I could have left this out easily”. You see, there’s a lot of things they want you to document that might not be necessary. A description of the software development method (Scrum) was included in all former graduate students’ reports, but they were all identical: copied from the first guy. That’s a waste of space, if you ask me, but apparently they want you to document it. I’m trying to do that in such a way that the information presented is meaningful.
