Although its useful to have the example grid and all the instructions next to the page you're working on it does make the image very small. Would it be possible to have these on a separate window that you could refer to when needed and get rid of once you know what you're doing and make the page image larger?

An excellent idea, jil!

Perhaps an example grid for each log type ;)
(If I understand correctly, the current one is misleading.)

They could use the slide-out Field Guide tab.  ;)

I didn't mark course and speed since we don't usually collect that. The column numbers across the top likewise, but the hours are for sure needed.

I agree with you kevin, BUT the instructions are as below.

Draw boxes around each bottom row header cell, as shown above. Remember to include the first column. Click done.

This covers all but can confuse old users who know what is collected.

Just a thought.

It confuses me, but that doesn't take much ::)

What is and where is the 'slide-out Field Guide tab'?

I have only got as far as the first page.

Yes, for an operational system we would have more specific instructions (and probably I should follow the ones that happen to be there : ) ). All comments will be passed along to the developer. Thanks to all for contributing.

Oh, sorry, it's a feature available in the Zooniverse Project Builder. It's a tab that slides out from the right side of the screen for containing help and other info. It's not used here...  ;)

What do I do for the Lat/Long readings and do you want all three when available?

If this page comes up correctly for you, you can see it on the far right. You may need to log in.



I don't think we are worrying about the Lat/Long readings for now.

It took a few tries, but I think I got the system figured out.  At this stage is it just drawing the grids?  I didn't see where to fill in the data... to see how good the grids were drawn.

I like to draw the rows generously to account for sloppy placement, but don't know if that approach will work in practice.

That is what I normally do too, but I'm not quite sure that is what they want here :-\
Important note: when marking a grid follow the printed lines of the table as closely as possible, even if it cuts off part of a character. The system can be set to add a regular buffer to account for dragging tails and misaligned typing.
Of course, when the printed logbook lines are not vertical or horizontal, it's pretty hard to follow them with lines that are :'(

If the page is crooked try to adjust the boxes as best as you can with the tools available. We do not need anything other than the tabled data at this point (no dates, lat/long etc). The purpose is to test the grid method with respect to the OCR engines. (There are only 8 x 7 pages to do).

Is overlapping the boxes OK?
