|New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge|
Challenge Team Abstract
As many of you know, New Mexico has a quite varying contour of terrain. Many of us live in mountainous areas, and others, in the eastern plains of our state. Whenever you travel, you will experience many changes, sometimes drastic, in terrain.
Our project is to develop a means of calculating the surface area of a certain portion of land, including many varying factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, two and three dimensional land contours. In order to do this, we are going to use an actual contour map of a certain area of land locally, and comparatively create a program for calculating basic topology. By accomplishing this goal, we may be able to further validate Bureau of Land Management maps. This program will also be handy in real world scenarios, for instance, in measuring square sections for ranch fencing and livestock grazing.
