X3D-Edit is a graphics file editor for Extensible 3D (X3D) that enables simple error-free editing, authoring, and validation of X3D or VRML scene-graph files. Context-sensitive tooltips provide concise summaries of each VRML node and attribute. These tooltips simplify authoring and improve understanding for novice and expert users alike. It uses the X3D 3.0 tagset defined by the X3D 3.0 Document Type Definition (DTD) in combination with Sun's Java, IBM's Xeena XML editor, and editor profile configuration files.
XELand generates night landscapes as stereo pairs for cross-eye viewing. Currently it uses two map generation methods (plus some variations). Generated height maps are seamless and can be saved as PNG images. The program requires only JDK 1.5 or above, and is very easy to use. To take full advantage of XEland you should learn cross-eye viewing.
XPlot is a Mathematics function plotting program based on OpenGL. It can be used to plot functions in 2 and 3 dimension. Graphs plotted are interactive. Users can change the point of view, zoom in and zoom out, adjust the plot range, and colorize the graph. It should accommodate many of the needs of high school students for graphic data representation.
YAJOGLB (Yet Another Java OpenGL Binding) allows Java programmers to access their native OpenGL library. The library is implemented using Java's JAWT to access the native windowing system, along with JNI calls to OpenGL. Programs using the binding must use the shared library provided, since this is not a pure Java library.
bwfirt is a framework for benchmarking ray tracing kernels in the context of a realistic light simulation application. The most important capabilities tested here are: fast ray shooting and visibility functions for incoherent mono-rays (no bundles), numerical robustness, and small memory footprint. The framework implements a simple pathtracer to generate rays with a real-life distribution. Developers can easily plug in their cores to the framework, which then compiles the output images, running times, and memory utilizations of the different kernels into a PDF, providing a clear comparison.
