[G03-08] Development of web application for polarizing microscope observation
Keywords:polarizing microscope, Web application, teaching materials
This application's unique attempt as a polarizing microscope simulator is to deal with various devices including smartphones and tablets and to reduce the amount of data transfer. First of all, you can use this application regardless of the machine as long as you install a modern browser (such as Google Chrome, Safari, and Microsoft Edge), and you can use it in the excellent layout according to the screen size of the device. Second, while maintaining the smooth rotation of the visual field image, the number of images required for one sample is limited to 12 to 24 images. As a result, when using JPEG images of 1280 × 1280 px, the data size is about 2 to 3.5 MB, and the number of requests to the server is only one.
I assume the following use cases for this application.
1. In class, teachers can project polarized microscope images on the screen if there is a projector.
2. In the class, all the students can view and operate the same rock slice picture at hand.
3. In the geological excursion, you can share rock slice photos at the time of guidance.
In the future, I would like to realize content expansion and response to various use cases by publishing the upload function of polarization microscope image data by users and providing private repository creation service of image data.
