Creating a digital library requires converting the original scanned images into various formats. WolfpackSys is a software system that performs these large data conversion tasks in a distributed manner. The framework allows the best off-the-shelf conversion programs to be used in an automated system, and it runs the conversions in parallel on a large number of machines. It is currently used to perform image cropping, de-skewing, de-speckling, and OCR, as well as to create JPEG and Acrobat files from scanned images.
Wordfinder is a simple application to help you find a word you need. Wordfinder pulls a dictionary file into a database and provides a search interface for finding the word, complete with wildcard support. It is useful for crossword puzzles, word searches, boggle/scrabble games, etc.
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.
