Online Anchor Modeler

We have released an early preview of an online tool for Anchor Modeling. It is made using HTML5 and makes heavy use of <canvas> and its related 2D API. This limits the (possibly) supported browsers to Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. It will not work in Internet Explorer.

Currently it has been tested with Chrome 6 (development channel), Firefox 4 Beta 3, and Firefox 3.6. Click the link in the navigation menu to start or use this direct link.

Currently the modeler will start up showing the example seen above. The tool is still at a very early stage of development. It is not meant for production use. The source code and development logs can be found on Google Code.

Note that, however slightly, both the graphical and XML notation has changed, as well as the naming conventions, in order to reflect the changes made in our latest paper (due to be published late this autumn).
