Undergraduate Research at the Vis Center

Week 2: Research Question

This week was about continuous learning and reading all that could help me developing the Web based application. I also read and watched some video tutorials related with Java in order to help Eric in the Android part. We also had a very interesting seminar by Dr. Seales. It was about what is a research and the VisU  Program. He encourages us to push the boundaries of what we know and find our direction to graduate school. He also asked us to make our research question:  Is it possible that we can develop an application that will be compatible with iOS, Android, and Web? I said “we” because as Dr. Seales said there’s no “I” in a teamwork, so that’s the general project question. My research question is: Is it possible to develop a Web-based app related with the ancient manuscripts with a standardized format compatible with the Android and iOS apps?
