Visualization issues with EMBB
Started on April 21, 2016. Copied from redmine (https://bugs.ligo.org/redmine/issues/4053)
I (Alex) received a report from Peter Shawan (firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding visualization issues with the EM Bulletin Board:
I see what you mean about Skymap Viewer: it seems to display a different set of tiles when I select the GOTO box; whatever the previously displayed set was, I think. For instance, if I view the most recent (top) skymap from https://gracedb.ligo.org/events/view/G211117 and Show Bulletin Board, then de-select GOTO, de-select the last LOFAR-TKSP, and then select GOTO, it displays the tiles from that LOFAR-TKSP set. That's not the only problem, though. The selection box for the last EWE set actually displays the tiles from the middle LOFAR-TKSP set. My hunch is that this is a bug activated by the EWE entry with N_regions=0, but that is just a hunch.
I was able to reproduce the problem by following the steps below:
- Alternating the last two checkboxes in the bulletin board appear to turn on/off the same visualization layer. The color-coding for the layers is definitely incorrect, though I don't know (at first glance) which dataset is being rendered incorrectly.
- As of this posting, I have not observed the bug in other events so I need to determine the commonality in other events.
- Also, users have reported in the same email thread that visualization is slow to render.
I have uploaded the email thread to this ticket and will update it as new reports come in.Re__GOTO_team_observations_with_SWASP_in_GraceDB.rtf
