V_Sim visualizes atomic structures such as crystals, grain boundaries, molecules, and so on It can work with files either in binary format or in plain text format. The rendering is done in pseudo-3D with colored spheres to represent the atoms. The user can interact through many functions to choose the view, the size of the atoms, their color, the background color, the type of fog, and more. Moreover, V_Sim allows you to export the view as images in GIF, PS, and other formats.
CASTORE (CApitalization & STORagE) takes place in a user-centered design approach to build an open archive platform, planned to create institutional repositories, managed by librarians in their respective institutions. With this system, the authors are able to store, convert (XML), fully index, manage, perpetuate, valorize, and distribute their digital documents. It uses an assembly of components (Tomcat, OO, JDO, Saxon, Lucene, etc.) to build middleware applications, relying on XML and any relational database. The system has been developed with a component architecture (J2EE) to be able to integrate the platform with any intranet environment with the minimum cost of development.
