D/T Shades of Green

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm writing a program to help me see my progress in various Fizzy challenges (by type, by size, by state, et cetera) and I want to get my "shades of green" to match what's on the statistics page. There are five different shades of green, referred to (in the source code) as "couple" , "few" , "some", "many", and "lots." However I don't know all of the break points between the colors! Here's what I have:

 

couple 1-10

few 11-25

some 26 - 99?

many 100? - ???

lots ??? - ???

 

Who knows where the "break points" are between the colors? Inquiring minds want to know...

It took me a while of looking through my and friends' stats, but I finally found some with 99 and 100, which confirms the break between some and many.  None of my friends have exactly 249 or 250, but the numbers in the 200 range are close enough that it looks like 249-250. edit: I have one friend with 250 in one category and it is not in the darkest green color, so 250-251 may be the break between many and lots. Same friend has 99 in the medium green confirming break point between some and many, see second snip below.

 

So:

 

couple 1-10

few 11-25

some 26-99

many 100-249 250

lots 251+

 

Adding snip of my stats for illustration.

250-251 is the break, not 249-250

Thanks for the assist! My "Fizzy Viewer" is shaping up nicely. Once finished you'll be able to view your current Fizzy status filtered by states, sizes, types, attributes, and date range.

Here's a preview...

Cool.  What's it written in?  Just curious; enquiring geek minds want to know.

 

(LOL hzoi)

((Stupid "funny" feature doesn't work.))

Written in Java. I put this same graphic on Facebook and have already gotten lots of requests and suggestions, so feel free to do the same here. Once it's ready for beta testing I'll post a link on this thread and y'all can tear it apart and find all of my mistakes :)

If anyone cares, Beta 1 of my "Fizzy Viewer" is ready for testing. Download link is www.thesnowdog.com/TEST/FizzyView.jar and you will need Java installed on your PC. Just double click the "jar" file to run the program. Please let me know how it works for you!

It seems to be working as advertised on my PC.  Since it's written in Java it should, theoretically run on a Mac (or Linux) machine unless you're doing something windows specific in how the data is displayed.

 

For the Locations filter I'd like to see locations other than US States and Canadian Provinces.  I've found caches in 14 countries in Europe and might be interested in seeing results filtered by country.

Glad to hear that it is working. I have never actually distributed a Java "jar" file like this and was a little on edge as to whether it was assembled correctly.

 

Since I live in the US it's US centric. Canada was added by request but that's about as many "states" as I can cram into one dialog. If you "check all" and then de-select states in the US and Canada, you still get the rest of the world. If you "clear all" that also clears the rest of the world, and you get only what is selected.

I've used executable jar files quite a bit.   I downloaded it only my Mac and although I didn't try clicking on the jar file in "Finder", from the command I ran "java -jar FizzyView.jar" and it launched correctly.  I have a couple of other ideas for improvement as well.  If you could put the source code in github (and add me as a contributor) I might be able to make some suggestions (I've been a java programmer for more than 10 years).

Keep in mind that the thresholds between shades of green depend on your highest and lowest count in any one category.

The icons weren't working in the original jar file; download again for instructions to get the slightly newer and improved version.

There was a problem with the icons in the jar file. The new and improved link is www.thesnowdog.com/TEST/FizzyView.zip, or (since you're already a Java user) just extract the "icons" directory from the jar file and put that directory where the jar is; the attribute and type and title bar icons should show up then.

 

The source code is too awful to post right now but after I've cleaned it up a bit I'll put it on my github account.

That is the case on the maps, but not on the D/T grid; we looked at a BUNCH and the color breaks were the same on all of them.

Do you need to download all your cache data to a GSAK file or something?  Program works, but how do you get the data in it?
