Summer Project Blog 8

Data Usage and Citation Visualization
Mentor: Skye Roseboom and Heather Piwowar Intern:Pei Chu
Week 8(July 9-July 13)

During this week,since the loading time of live data is a little slow, Skye suggested me to create a cache for the log data and use Java singleton class to implement it. Thus, the data will be obtained from the remote server only at the beginning of loading page,which should be a better user experience.

For the total-impact part, Heather helped us a lot. She made some modification for the embed code and added the namespace “dataone” at the beginning of the identifier,which keeps the accordance of all the identifiers.

Besides, I also added the footer div at the bottom of our webpage,making it more formal. Now, the webpage is almost done except for other “later” issues,such as the name, security and documentation. I’m looking forward to our final version.
