My Pedigree

Posted: 8th August 2011 by bryant in Genealogy

I love my job.

Last week, we were allowed to take a Google Day.  A Google day is when an engineer is allowed to work on something that specifically interests them and may not be related to their current work load.  I have been interested in creating a circular pedigree chart for some time now and I finally had the time to get started.


The link above is to my populated ten generation chart.


I’m using Java and the iText library to draw the lines onto a pdf.  I then use iText to transform the angles and rotation of the text that will go on the slots.

Then, using protected access to the farm cluster, I retrieve my family.  Then it is only a matter of running around the circle and printing the names.

Dang cool
