Project #31016 - Database

Attached is the data file you will need in your final project. The file has four columns, including the unique ID of a person, residence years of the person, the latitude and longitude of each residence record of the person. 

The goal of your project is to generate the cumulative environmental exposure for each person. The expected system output should include: 1) all the environmental monitoring records used in your estimation for each individual person's cumulative exposure, and 2) the cumulated exposure for the person. 

To derive the cumulative exposure, you need to find for any given year of a person's residence, the closest several pollution monitoring points in your database and then do a distance-based weighted average. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inverse_distance_weighting)

Also, in your final project report, you need to manually calculate exposure results for a handful of people as case examples. Please include all steps of your manual calculation so that I can verify your derivation process. Of course, we expect these results should match the automatic output produced by your program. I will announce the human subject ID #s for these people 48 hours before the project due time. Therefore, you are recommended to ensure that your program will run smoothly for all the announced human subjects well before the project due date.  

The grading criteria will be based upon: 

1) the number of years of environmental monitoring data covered in your database;

2) the number of environmental monitoring elements covered in your database;

3) the complexity and suitableness of the relationships modeled in your database;

3) the correctness of your calculation results;

4) the richness of your cumulative exposure derivation mechanism, mainly the amount of environmental monitoring data points your program would retrieve to derive the cumulative exposure output of each human subject;

5) the computational efficiency of your program in deriving the exposure data. 

In your final project report, please discuss your work outcome following the above five aspects. The report does not need to be long. Clearly presented design logics with good performance numbers should be sufficient to receive a score of excellence. A lengthy report will poor performance numbers will not help. I may also randomly run your submitted program to verify the performance numbers you reported. Therefore, please thoroughly discuss in your project report how to configure and run your program by a third-party person. 

If you still have anything unclear about the requirement of this project, please respond to this post on Moodle but do not mail me personally so that my reply to your question will be visible to the entire class.
