650:231 M.E. Computational Analysis and Design, Fall 2010 Project 3a Get a real insect wing and scan or take a picture of it to obtain an image of the insect wing. The scanner is an ideal tool to capture the shape of the insect wing if you use its magnifying capability. Measure the x and y coordinates of as many points on the contour of the wing and create the data points (xi, yi) for the coordinates. Extra credit will be given if the veins are included in the plot. Visit also my website for sample wing pictures: http://128.6.230.7/Insect%20Wings/index.html Submit the Following Items 1.The original insect wing (submit in class), 2.The image of the wing (upload as a part of one project file from sakai), i). Discuss how the picture was obtained. ii). Identify the species with the common and Latin names. Give the original size of the wing.
