Bad Hair day (Landcape Change)

Woke up this morning to 4 emails from Paul Bierman.

  1. thumbnails view sort by… not working
  2. errant “invalid code” warning appearing on Add a Comment pop-up
  3. Google maps not working
  4. Stereoview image missing.

1 and 2 easy. 3 …

The initial Landscape URL is . Through the magic of science, this URL is actually serviced by, a (virtual?) server independent from, running on its own dedicated hardware. the public should only see URLs. Now, for reasons I can’t fully recall (something to do with “WebAuth’ and infinite loops), all Admin operations are supposed to happen via the URL, after user name and password authentication.

I thought I had this all figured out and working, but maybe not. I noticed today that once a visitor got to, all subsequent links pointed to

Unfortunately The Google Maps stuff only works when Google thinks the map is appearing on somewhere. Can this be changed? Not easily for a variety of Googly reasons.

So I think I have things rigged to only present URLs, until such time as the visitor logs in as an admin

And 4

This is an old problem:

The 3D icon appears if the Media is “stereoview”, regardless if there is an actual 3D anaglyph or not

It looks like I created all the 3D anaglyphs September 2, 2008. At that time, the stereoview with the largest LS number was LS17211. So, LS23579, LS25550, LS29489, LS23275, and LS29502 were all added to the archive later. Thus, no anaglyph

All the images were split in half automatically using a batch process, then melded using AnaBuilder

For the newer images, and the ‘broken’ ones, I suggest manual processing:

1) Use Photoshop to split image into two files, left and right

2) Use AnaBuilder to construct anaglyph

3) for image LSXXXXXX_YYY.jpg, save result as  LSXXXXXX_YYY_S.jpg

4) Upload (using Fetch) LSXXXXXX_YYY_S.jpg to /:/geology/landscape/asset_store. For LSABCDE, sub-folder would be /:/geology/landscape/asset_store/AB/CD/LSABCDE

example for LS23579

Hi Wes,

We just got some new red/blue glasses for viewing steroviews and I noticed a few things.  First of all there are a few where the page won’t come up when you click on the 3D icon: LS23579, LS25550, LS29489, LS23275, and LS29502.
