Hello all, 

1) What do I have completed this week? 
This week I have revised approach to development of the backend.

The problem is that currently the scatter plot tool is not using raster library for analysed rasters and instead of this it is it is producing binary files. The reason for that bypass is that in it's current state the raster library has limitations, which make it difficult to use it in wxGUI environment. The major limitation for the scatter plot tool is an inability of the raster library to define own region just for rasters, which the tool uses. It can be changed only for the whole wxGUI environment.

After consultation with my mentor, we have concluded, that it is worth trying at least to suggest changes, which would reduce raster library limitations in wxGUI. 

2) What am I going to achieve for next week? 
During the weekend I am going to create some abstract draft of changes in raster library and then I would like to discuss it with GRASS community and find out whether it is dead end or it makes sense to continue in it. 

3) Is there any blocking issue? 
Raster library, but it is interesting to study it.
