SciPy John Hunter Excellence in Plotting Contest on matplotlib website ?

Hello,

At Scipy, we briefly discussed the possibility of having the nicest plots of the John Hunter Excellence in Plotting Contest on matplotlib’s website, with the code available.

I personnally would love to be able to see those plots again, and the code used to generate them. It would also be a great way to advertise the use of matplotlib for high standard plotting.

I would love to work on this. I was thinking that the easiest would probably to do a dedicated website, where we could easily upload the code, the data and the images in high resolution. It would also allow us to have a more modern looking website, more “commercial” than the matplotlib one.

Also, we (matplotlib) do not hold the copyrights but I think scipy or numfocus does. Hence, doing this in the name of scipy (or numfocus) would avoid some legal issues.

We could then be able to link to this website.

What do you think?

(We should also include the organizers of the contest in this discussion, but I don’t really know how to contact them.)

Cheers,

N

I submitted this to the scipy papers repository, but I’m not sure
where that content was posted (or if it has been yet). That contains the output of the Sphinx document I used to generate
the results (and also what I shared with the judges prior to the
conference). I can send you the Sphinx source offline.
When we solicited entries, we asked for permission for the Scipy
conference to use them. If we want to use them on the matplotlib
website, I think we’d need to seek permission for that (or we can,
of course, link to what SciPy posts). It was done this way because
I didn’t want it to appear to be a matplotlib-based competition
(though it did turn out that way).
Sure. What I did is not terribly modern looking – web design is a
set of skills I don’t really have – so I’d love it if we could
modernize it.
This is a great idea. I think if there’s a subdomain (or url) of
scipy.org we could use for this to host some static content, that
would be ideal. And then we link to it from matplotlib.org.

(I’ve Cc’d the scipy organizers list
who should probably be able to address your questions).

The fact that not all submissions are matplotlib is one of the reasons I
think this should be done in another website.
I've checked out the sources of this github repository. Maybe I can start
from there if you send me the sources!
