gipfel is a tool to find the names of mountains or points of interest on a picture. It uses a database containing names and GPS data. With the given viewpoint (the point from which the picture was taken) and two known mountains on the picture, it can compute all parameters needed to compute the positions of other mountains on the picture. gipfel can also generate (stitch) panorama images.
Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.
Madagascar is a software package for multidimensional data analysis and reproducible computational experiments. Its mission is to provide a convenient and powerful environment and a convenient technology transfer tool for researchers working with digital image and data processing in geophysics and related fields. Technology developed using the Madagascar project management system is transferred in the form of recorded processing histories, which become "computational recipes" to be verified, exchanged, and modified by users of the system.
ESMF is software for building and coupling weather, climate, and related models. The premise is that complicated applications should be broken up into smaller pieces, or components. A component is a unit of software composition that has a coherent function, and a standard calling interface and behavior. Components can be assembled to create multiple applications, and different implementations of a component may be available.
GEOS is a complete C++ implementation of the functions and predicates defined in the OpenGIS "Simple Features for SQL" specification. It includes high quality implementations of all the important spatial relationships and operations, robust versions of all functions in the dimensionally extended 9 intersection predicate model, implementations of the operators, Buffer(), Union(), and Intersection(), and all other SFSQL functions including Area(), Length(), Centroid(), etc.
OpendTect is a seismic interpretation software system. It enables you to process, visualize, and interpret multi-volume seismic data using attributes and modern visiualization techniques such as stereo viewing and volume rendering. Visualization elements can be moved freely through data space to interactively analyze data from stored volumes, or data calculated on-the-fly. For more advanced work, commercial plugins are available.
The Feature Data Objects API provides a generic, command-based interface to a number of back-end data source technologies for storing, retrieving, updating, and analyzing GIS (Geographic Information System) data. A provider is a specific back-end implementation of the FDO API that provides access to data stored in a particular data source technology.
CGAL, the Computational Geometry Algorithms Library, is a large C++ library of geometric data structures and algorithms such as Delaunay triangulations, mesh generation, Boolean operations on polygons, and various geometry processing algorithms. CGAL is used in various areas: computer graphics, scientific visualization, computer aided design and modeling, geographic information systems, molecular biology, medical imaging, robotics and motion planning, and numerical methods.
