The shade created by the vendor umbrellas is a huge magnet during market hours and it begins to control movement in the piazza [see photos from a previous post].  Here is the beginning of a new layer of information to the previous “density fluctuations” definition.  The lighter shade of pink is the umbrella layer and the green square outlines are the shaded areas [responds to and is controlled by a sun definition].  The paths shift towards the shaded areas, which should create more clusters [metaballs] under the umbrellas.  Ideally, there would be one master slider for the various parameters [time of day, umbrella coverage, movement of people, etc.], but let’s hope that won’t be too much of a challenge.
