Implementation Objectives: mgui-geology-1.0.0-beta

This page outlines the implementation objectives for the Launchpad milestone "mgui-geology-1.0.0-beta". This is the initial release proposal for mgui-geology.

Proposed release date: 31 Dec 2010

Executive Summary

This is to be the initial official beta release for mgui-geology. The Features section details the outstanding feature proposals which should be implemented by the release date. The Issues and Bugs section details the outstanding issues and bugs that have been identified and which should be fixed by the release date.

The release will be publicized through this wiki, through Launchpad, through personal correspondence, and possibly through linking with other forums such as and NITRC.

A full set of tools for geoscientific modelling is far too ambitious for this initial release, so the object is to concentrate on a number of stand-alone functions, which are given priority here. Thus, the minimum requirement for this milestone is to have all items and issues with priority High implemented or fixed; lower priority items will be addressed as time and resources allow.

The two components under current development are:

  • Drillhole plotting
  • Database connectivity

A mapping component for geology will rely heavily upon a GIS component, which will be proposed as a separate mgui subproject (possibly called either mgui-geography or mgui-gis). As this component has no official project or target release date as of yet, features applying to the mapping component will be given low priority, subject to progress.
