New My Moon Zoo Features - May 2010 - Comments here!
« on: May 25, 2010, 03:29:07 pm »
You may have noticed that some tweaking and improvements have been going on! My Moon Zoo Favourites and Recent lists are now linked to the relevant LROC WMS interface where we can look at the area in much more detail. IreneAnt provideed some details about the WMS browser here. There's also a zoom and a Google Moon option. Have fun and report any problems here.

Hi BP

That doesn't look right at all  :(

Can you post which browser and operating system you're using as this may help Arfon.

Hi BP

Another thought - how long has your browser being running for? Maybe its cache is messed up. You could try clearing cache and restarting the browser to see if it fixes the problem.

Has it been suggested yet that it'd be great if we could look at an image in Recents and, deciding it's more important than we'd originally thought, add it to Favorites?  I know I'd love that, along with a way to delete favorites.  My Favorites list is ridiculously long and a lot of the things I put there turned out to not be something I needed to revisit.

What you could do is store the Id of images you like in a word processing document with a comment to remind you why it's special.

You can always examine the image again by inserting the Id into this url: http://www.moonzoo.org/examine/<<Id>>

Remember to save the document every so often!

Yes - these things will happen!

Hi,

I am not sure if this is the correct place to do this but it would be great to have a section with current statistics such as images examined, craters marked etc.

Thanks!

Rob -- My understanding is that this had been done for GalaxyZoo in terms of individual user stats, but that it turned into a competition that resulted in poor classifications just for the sake of beating someone in number classified.

That said, if I do end up becoming a part of the science team in the coming weeks/months, I'm going to push very hard to get some sort of user or group feedback out to you folks to see the progress we're making and all the help that you and everyone else is giving to identifying craters and other features on the moon.

AHA,

I found this thread!  I really love the way Moon Zoo works and can understand its current structure.  Especially concerning browser issues!

Nether the less I still wanna be cheeky!  Is there a way to manipulate the images at all?  For example in a basic way Id love to be able to maximise to full screen?  Ill ignore all my other cheeky ideas just to do that.

I point out that some of us now use TV'S as monitors, for example LED 50" with HD.  So as quaint as the current setting on pics are they really are minimal and hard to draw on.  I mention this as Im sure a compromise can be reached with the current programmers and pics to accomodate this?

Ive also told my friends about Moon Zoo, they too use HD systems!  Im not trying to be negative but the days of a browser in the corner are over!

Unfortunately I couldn't see the boulders in the survey.

Hi tsiehta

Did you have a question or a problem? It's not clear from your description if anything is wrong.

Hi Geoff,
regarding the survery image I didn't classify it comprehensive, I've missed the boulders because the image was too small, discovered it only after going to 'my moon zoo'. I'm aware of the discrepance by a zoom option while doing the survey and at the same time maybe missing something. The question is if scientists can live with it.

Hi tsiehta

The crater survey is mainly interested in how many craters there are in the image, you don't need to record boulders unless there are boulder tracks. I wouldn't worry about missing small boulders and just concentrate on the craters!
