## Pseudo Data Structure for Strava and Komoot

Strava and Komoot can be used to plan bicycle trips and to record them. Both tools can be used for both purposes, but it seems that Strava is better for the recording and Komoot better for the planning. Btw. it works also for walking or running, for example. But I will stick with the bicycle …

## Unit and Integration Test with Databases

From an ideological point of view, tests that involve the database may be unit tests are may be integration tests. For many applications the functional logic is quite trivial, so it is quite pointless to write „real unit tests“ that work without the database. Or it may be useful. But there is a category of …

## Spline Approximation (Mathematics II)

This is the third of a series of article about spline approximation. If you have not done so, you should start reading Spline Approximation (Introduction) Spline Approximation (Mathematics) So a function which is supposed to approximate a given set of points as a linear combination     of functions , as described in the previous …

## Spline Approximation (Mathematics)

The goal of spline approximation has already been explained in the previous article „Spline Approximation (Introduction)„. This article will cover the mathematics behind this approximation and develop an approach. If you do not care about the mathematics, just skip this article and read the Spline Approximation (Cookbook)“, that will come soon. Spline Interpolation We have …

## Spline Approximation (Introduction)

We sometimes encounter a situation where a number of points with coordinates are given and we want to find a function such that for all of these points we have (interpolation) or (approximation). Most often we say that we want on average to be as small as possible and for whatever reasons usually the quadratic …

## Just run it twice

Often we use some kind of „clustered“ environment to run our software. This promises higher performance and better availability. And the frameworks seem to suggest that it is just a matter of starting it twice and it will magically work correctly. There is nothing wrong with investing some thoughts on this issue. It can actually …

## Combining multiple scans

When images are scanned multiple times, maybe there is a way to construct an image that is better than any of the scans from them. In this case it is assumed, that one scan has a higher resolution, but another scan got the colors better. It has already been found out, which two scans belong …
