# Workshop Preparation¶

The upcoming MAP Client workshop will be centered around using the MAP Client and developing MAP Client plugins. We will focus in particular on workflows and plugins relevant to the FAI project.

To maximise productivity during the workshop, there are few things participants can do in preparation.

## 1. The MAP Client¶

Please refer to the MAP Client Manual for details on using the MAP Client. Note that the installation pages of the manual is currently out of date.

If you intend on writing MAP Client plugins, please read the MAP Plugin page to familiarise yourself with the MAP Client plugin API.

Try the MAP Client Installation guide for Windows. If you do not succeed, don’t worry, we will go over installation on day 1.

We will be running workflows and developing plugins for FAI data. Therefore, it will be helpful to have a few FAI cases downloaded on your computer. If you do not have access to FAI data, please talk to David Saxby.

For each case, we will need its MRI segmentations and its static-trial TRC file. You may want to set up the following folder structure for each case:

FAS-XXX/
raw_seg/
[segmented STL files]
preprocessed_seg/
mocap/
static_trial.TRC
map_output/
fitted_meshes/
osim_model/
