Welcome to the Game Reserve Software Design 2006 mini wiki at Scratchpad!
You can use the box below to create new pages for this mini-wiki. Make sure you type
[[Category:Game Reserve Software Design 2006]] on the page before you save it to make it part of the Game Reserve Software Design 2006 wiki (preload can be enabled to automate this task, by clicking this link and saving that page. Afterwards, you may need to purge this page, if you still see this message).
This wiki is to be used for the research phase of the 2006 4th year Software Design project for the EE and IE Wits students. The project focuses on the design of a software application for use in a game reserve that will have two features:
1) Have the ability to plan the terrain limitations or requirements for a game reserve according to carrying capacity and terrain demographics.
2) Have the ability to continually manage the population of the game reserve.
Please reference your sources when adding information.
The wiki tutorial can be found here
You can also look at other wiki articles to see how some things are done.
To add an article just add an internal link to the page and it will be automatically created. Make sure that the name you use for the article is not already being used.
To edit a page click on the edit button at the top.
A discussions page exists for each created page. You can access it by clicking on the discussion link at the top of the page. Make sure to check it out and add any comments there since it will probably be the best place to communicate with people about odd topics.

Structure to Research
The easiest way to implement this research phase is on a first come first serve basis. If a topic is not taken, try and do the research for it, or if you find a taken topic that is missing some info, you can add to it.
If you find a good website, adding the link to that site will be fine.
Please don't forget to reference your sources, not necessarily in the Engineering manner, but a book name and author or weblink etc. will be fine.
You can use the discussion pages to put any notes about articles or comments.
Feel free to add your own topics, but be sure not to re-do research that has already been put up.
