STARS is an exploratory data analysis package designed for variables measured for geographical units over time. It combines a series of statistical graphics and mapping views together with some newly developed measures for space- time statistical analysis. It also includes utility methods for creating different types of geographical weight matrices, variable transformations, and for reading ArcView shapefiles to develop related projects.
The GPSTk provides both fundamental and advanced GPS processing algorithms. A wide array of functions are provided by the library, notably RINEX I/O, ephemeris calculation, atmospheric refraction models, and positioning algorithms. GPSTk applications provide more concrete benefits to the user, including cycle slip detection and removal, calculation of the Total Electron Content (TEC) of the ionosphere, and RINEX file manipulation.
J2ME OGC WMS Client is a program for accessing OGC Web map services from Java enabled mobile phone or PDAs. It accesses the OGC WMS according to WMS 1.1.0 and 1.1.1 specifications and supports zooming and panning in the Map, WMS sublayers, and a bookmark management system for quick access.
Earth3D visualizes the earth in realtime in a 3D view. One can rotate and zoom the view and fly around. Additional data layers can be added to the view, e.g. country flags and names. It uses data from NASA, USGS, the CIA, and the city of Osnabrück. The data is loaded on demand over the Internet.
