The third winner of the Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition 2013Q3 is .... DRUM ROLL ....
Verdavaine Yan, for his article Memory-efficient Navigation in Very High Resolution Images on Windows Phone.
This article delivers two re-usable UI controls which enable fluid and memory-efficient zoom, pan and rotate inside very high resolution (or gigapixel) images, using the Nokia Imaging SDK. We were impressed with the results achieved both on high and low memory devices - irrespective of the image size. Not only is this a significant technical achievement, but the article is well written, and provides useful information that is not covered by the Nokia Imaging SDK documentation.
Yan also contributed the article Optimizing Imaging SDK use for rapidly changing filter parameters (used by his winning article) and valuable feedback about the SDK.
In addition to his own articles and feedback he has also selflessly helped many other developers with advice about their entries (including some of our other winners) and with help for using the SDK on the discussion boards. As his contribution was "within the competition" we could not consider him for "Wiki Contributor of the Month" and "Discussion Board Poster of the Month". We do however consider him a true "community star", and will be sending him a (bonus) Monster headset as a token of our appreciation!
Please join me to congratulate Yan on his win! (and also our other winners: PedroQ and Tomáš Slavíček). Other winners to be announced shortly!
