I’m running up some knowledge debt in these forums – much appreciate all the help so far, hopefully I’ll be in a position to help others myself soon.
I have a project I would like to execute, but I am unsure exactly what area / languages I should be focusing on to get to the point where I can execute this project as quickly as possible.
The project would look like this:
- A database of objects with 4 primary attributes, a vector path attribute based upon an XY grid (linear, not polygonal, with curves) and then some other text attributes, and maybe a visual icon to tag each icon with to make it all look slick.
- The ability to cluster the objects (probably around 300-400 total) into three different groups, so you could view one group at a time and collapse the other two groups.
- The ability to sort those groups based upon the 4 primary attributes in the main table area. (Maybe 5 or 6 attributes, I assuming adding a couple of more isn’t a dealbreaker).
- The ability to select up to three object and have them display above the table side-by-side, visualizing their vector XY path, showing a title at top, and pulling their attribute info up next to them.
I’ve got a quick mockup of what the visuals might look like attached.
I don’t fundamentally understand enough about how the languages fit together, how tables/databases work, and how visualizing vector lines works to understand if a project like this is something reasonably achievable with some concentrated study over a couple of months, or if this is a highly complex thing that would require a more niche/advanced language?
Any perspectives much appreciated!
