While we're busy with GSoC let's have a look back at GCI also: The Google Open Source blog features an article "KDE shines with help from Google Code-in students" written by me.

We're in the third coding week of #gsoc2014  and our students are busy... you name it, writing code. Here's a progress update from +Călin Cruceru along with nice screenshots. It might remind you of +Inkscape working on a large spherical object ;-)
Hi again! In this post I will make a short presentation of my progress in my Google Summer of Code project. So, after two weeks from the official and much awaited coding period start I am glad to s...

After introducing +Sanjiban Bairagya last time in our #gsoc2014  introduction now it's time to have a look at +Călin Cruceru and his GSoC project on polygon editing in Marble.
And this is certainly what we are going to do. I am proud to say that I have been accepted to Google Summer of Code under KDE, Marble project. Surprised? Yes, a little bit. That is, I belived in my...

More than 50 people from all over the world came together last week in San Francisco and Mountain View for the #gci2013 Grand Prize Trip, among them the two KDE winners +Mikhail Ivchenko and +Benjamin Kaiser. Four days of fun, exciting activities and lots of swags, lovingly organized by the awesome Google Open Source team -- thanks!

In related news, selected #gsoc 2014 projects/students will be announced in a couple of hours. Let's hope for some Marble related ones in there!

Another great example of Marble use for the classroom: The movie producer "Senator Filmverleih" released some classroom material in German for the french documentary "Sur le Chemin de l'Ecole". The documentary describes the big challenges that four kids have to take on their daily way to school.
On page 6 of the classroom material the classroom students are asked to use "a big map or software like MARBLE to locate the homeland of the four kids."

This is exactly one of the use cases we created Marble for: We would love to see more of this!

The Randa Meeting 2014 is coming up and we hope to do a Marble sprint there with at least +Torsten Rahn, +Dennis Nienhüser, +Abhinav Gangwar and +Sanjiban Bairagya attending. Want to support us and make it possible? Please use the fundraiser at http://www.kde.org/fundraisers/randameetings2014/

A virtual camera flight that travels across several placemarks (e.g. cities) should be smooth: Sudden changes of direction need to be avoided. This is a classical interpolation task, yet classical algorithms cannot be applied directly to points on a sphere. Spherical and quadrangle (squad) interpolation to the rescue! The screencast demonstrates how the algorithm works. We'll use it in the future during playback of (KML) tours.

We'll have three GSoC students working on Marble over the summer! Let's introduce their projects one after the other, starting with Sanjiban today who is going to work on interactive tours.

Illya introduces moon rendering in Marble, a feature implemented over the last months. Don't miss this nice overview!
The next Marble release is going to be packed with lots of exciting new stuff again, many of that developed during #gci2013 which is still going strong.
