Web Interface


The basic functionalities of the web interface are: user administration, query management, and result visualization.  The data model for all three is described on the DataBase page.


User administration


User administration relies on the built-in Admin functionality in Django.  The access levels are as follows:


  • Administrator: can create leads and researchers, can delete either, can create and set limits on leads and researchers
  • Lead researcher (a.k.a. lead): can create / delete researchers up to a certain number, can run queries
  • Researcher: can run queries (subject to limits set by researcher)


Query Management


Queries will be simple objects in the django db; actions will be taken based on them in non-django  / non-web-facing code.  They can come in several forms:


  • one off requests with a single source and single destination
  • timed monitoring requests which repeat on an interval,  from a single source to a single destination
  • variations on multiple sources, multiple destinations, and monitoring or not
  • other types which I’m not thinking of?


Results visualization


This is a tricky one that I haven't figured out how to deal with yet...


  • kml file (google maps, google earth)
  • csv file
  • ??
