* discussed code licenses: we will adopt the [http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lesser.html LGPL] for the API (and probably the [http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html GPL] for the UI)
 +
* we divided upcoming work into 3 projects:
 +
** geocoding API - Colin & Toby will incorporate support for group fu's data store
 +
** user interface - Kevin will start researching possible alternatives to Google maps (both web- and java-based)
 +
** API cleanup and data source additions - Alex & Aybars
 +
*** Alex interested in veterans vs. house value overlay

We compared three of our Kerasotes lab scripts. We apparently all wrote them in PHP. The best innovations we found were Toby's data point definition abstraction and test suite. In essence, the data point definition abstraction allows one to describe a data source and data points that one would like to harvest in a general manner. The test suite is a basis for more general testing of the software that we will write. Also of note, were some of our findings as far as regular expressions. For instance, as a group we learned how to make a regular expression not greedy and how to not save a group (?).
Attached you will find an image of our general model thus far. We have already incorporated some of the ideas discussed in this session, including a more general data point abstraction and streamlined data flow between the programmer API, database, and WUI. As part of our plan, we intend to use Java as the base language, XML for temporary data storage and transfer, PostgreSQL or MySQL for data storage, and XHTML Transitional and JavaScript for the WUI.
