Google Summer of Code 2014: TCIA Data Exploration and Visualization


Dear Ganesh Iyer,
Congratulations. Your proposal "TCIA Data Exploration and Information Visualization" submitted to Biomedical Informatics, Emory University has been accepted for Google Summer of Code 2014.


This came in the mail a while ago :D. I've been busy with exams and submissions and haven't been able to write about it. So yeah, I got selected in GSoC 2014! I've been interested in data visualization for a while now and its good to be using that knowledge to help cancer researchers do some good for the world!


The biomedical datasets are diverse and include various datatypes like: clinical, pathology images, radiology images etc. Often researchers query and analyze these datasets, often fusing multiple modalities. Having a visual representation of the data, helps researchers analyzing the data and finding out hidden patterns that are otherwise undetected through statistical analysis.


In this project, I shall be developing an environment that allows users to create their own dashboards to create a subset of the data and analyse it. I'll be working on web technologies like Node.js on the backend and d3.js and crossfilter on the frontend to create the visualizations.

I have an amazing mentor in Ashish Sharma who is an Assistant Professor in Department of Biomedical Informatics, Emory University. My mentoring organisation is, ofcourse, Biomedical Informatics, Emory University University.

  1. While I was searching for an exciting project to work on for this summer under the umbrella of GSoC, I got to know about this project. Sir, I found this project very novel and exciting to work upon. Can you kindly help me getting started and through the process of making a strong proposal?
