Experiments in Synthetic Data6 November, 2018In order to train machine learning classifiers, a large dataset containing the object of interest is usually necessary. As an office of architects and animators, we have experience generating images using simulated objects and environment. This post details experiments we have been running to supplement a dataset of real images with synthetic counterparts.
Timemap - Release1 November, 2018TimeMap is a standalone frontend application that allows to explore and monitor events in time and space. TimeMap uses mapbox satellite imagery as a backdrop by default, and uses Leaflet and d3 to visually map information.
Datasheet Server - Release1 November, 2018Querying data directly from spreadsheets is brittle, as it relies on the maintenance of a rigid structure in the sheets at all times. By putting Datasheet Server as a proxy that sits in between source spreadsheets and their consumers, it is possible to dynamically modify sheets without breaking applications. A data admin can use Datasheet Server to ensure that applications always receive eligible data, without foregoing the spreadsheets as sources of truth.
