To do list

Submitted by Kevin Jardine on 26 March, 2005 - 01:37

A rough to do list in no particular order:

  • add a glossary
  • add more images
  • add more molecular clouds
  • add distance estimates for infrared clusters, if I can find any
  • try to fix problems with label overprinting on map (this one is hard)
  • write a better to do list

300 visitors so far

I corrected the names displayed on the object detail pages to make sure that they are consistent with the "Dictionary of Nomenclature of Celestial Objects", with the exception of a small set of gas clouds described here "The physical properties of giant molecular cloud complexes in the outer Galaxy - Implications for the ratio of H2 column density to (C-12)O intensity" which don't seem to have an entry in the dictionary.

I added some missing gas clouds, and updated the cluster database.

Then I added quite a bit of background material to the collaborative book.

On the first day of spring, 20 March 2005, I decided that the site was ready for an initial public launch and so sent messages out to a number of Yahoo, Google and Usenet astronomy newsgroups.

So far about 300 people have dropped by to take a look. It's a good start.

Almost done

After recovering from my holiday break, I've transferred all the map files and set up the front pages of the site.

A little bit more tickering and I'll be ready to start promotion.
