* I have selected the following task from GSoC projects page[http://wiki.octave.org/Summer_of_Code_Project_Ideas].
** I would like to implement the functions for Coordinate systems, Geodesy and Projections for Mapping Package in Octave Forge. The list of missing functions in the mapping package are grouped here [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AopkixSrywUIdEpaWVktM3hUQjBWZEZVTnlPRFJfU0E&usp=sharing]. The details of the functions that I have proposed to implement are present in the detailed schedule below. I have already contributed the 3D coordinate functions to this end[https://savannah.gnu.org/patch/index.php?8377].

** '''Detailed Schedule:''' [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AopkixSrywUIdE5aMngyYk53bEkxd2FtYUthS2hjbXc&usp=sharing]
** Week 0 (May 19 to May 26):
Familiarizing with Octave code. Complete the tests for 3D Coordinate system functions that I have already implemented. ** Week 1 to Week 4 (May 27 to June 25): Complete the implementation of missing functions in Modelling the Earth group and also certain missing functions in Geographic Coordinate Systems group. Complete the tests and submit 1. Modelling the Earth functions , 2. Certain functions in Geographic Coordinate systems , 3. 3D Coordinate system functions for mid term evaluation. ** Week 5 to Week 7 (June 26 to July 14): Complete the implementation and testing of missing functions remaining in Geographic Coordinate Systems group by the end of Week 5 , Lengths and Angles group by Week 6, Small Circles, Ellipses , and Spherical Distance group by the end of Week 7.** Week 8 to Week 10 (July 15 to August 5): Complete the implementation and testing of missing functions in Great Circles, Geodesics, and Rhumb Lines by the end of Week 10. ** By Week 12 ( By August 18): Fix any remaining bugs or Compatibility issues. Write remaining tests and Documentation. Code clean up and finalization. End of GSOC. ** After GSOC: Maintenance and further development of Mapping Package in Octave Forge.
A Buffer of two weeks(Week 11, Week 12) has been kept for any unpredictable delay. I have planned a 40 hour work schedule for every week. I will be unavailable for 4 days during the entire GSoC period due to personal commitments.
