  • [2022 Day 12] Elevation Shading
    2 projects | /r/adventofcode | 12 Dec 2022
    Just a simple relief-shaded image like you might find on a map. Principally generated with GDAL. The particular commands used are at the bottom of my solution code for the day. I also made a more flat version, which shows the elevation colors better, but really doesn't feel right in terms of elevation.

    So I spend more time analyzing the input calculation. I wrote up that analysis and committed it to my repository, too.

    This was a bit difficult. My original part one solution worked completely differently to what I had to do for part two.

    No. It's just here, as part of my Advent of Code repository.
  • [2021 Day 9] Cave Floor Relief Map
    3 projects | /r/adventofcode | 9 Dec 2021
    The code is at the bottom of my day 9 source file, in Common Lisp. (The AdvMAME3x code was something I originally wrote for my 2020 day 20 visualization.)

    As a side note, I took inspiration from a post the other day about adding AoC badges to your repository README file. I use GitLab, which lets you define badges as properties of your repository. So I added badges to my repository's header area, driven by a JSON file in the repository. The JSON file is updated manually by a script. (I might add some automated updates at some point, but manual works okay for now.)

    Probably overkill, because I parsed the instructions into instances of my point class. I tend to default to that for coordinates nowadays (as opposed to just using complex numbers) because it generically extends to arbitrary numbers of dimensions. Just in case.

    For part two, I first tried rewriting my code with a circular list structure I wrote for Advent of Code 2018 day 9 (Marble Mania). I figured the mutable circular list implementation would be more performant. It was, but nowhere near enough.
