Libpointmatcher is a modular "Iterative Closest Point" library, useful for robotics and computer vision. This library is designed with modularity and performance in mind. It provides building blocks to construct various ICP chains often seen in research. These chains can be tuned without any recompilation, and new modules can be added without modifying the core of the library.
Dandelion is a 3D graph rendering application which can be controlled across a network. Its main purpose is to allow clear network graphs to be rendered in a window, which can be controlled by a separate application or the user. The Dandelion visualization is actually controlled by issuing simple commands to it across the network (although this could all be happening on a single machine). The Dandelion source includes a set of very simple libraries which can be incorporated into other applications and which can be used to send these commands. Libraries are included for C, C#, Java, and Python. The project was developed at Liverpool John Moores University within the PROTECT Centre.
The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
GTKMathplot is an interactive plotting program based on GTK+ and the Cairo graphics library. It can display bidimensional curves, tridimensional curves, and surfaces from Cartesian or parametric equations describing the mathematical objects you would like to visualize. It is designed to be intuitive for high school students with good mathematical knowledge. University students of engineering, physics, mathematics, or natural sciences should need no explanation at all to start using it proficiently.
CodeQuery is a tool for indexing and then querying or searching C, C++, Java, and Python source code. It builds upon the databases of cscope and ctags, which are processed by the cqmakedb tool to generate a CodeQuery database file. This can be viewed and queried with a GUI tool. The features include auto-completion of search terms and visualization of function call graphs and class inheritance. The following queries can be made: Symbol, Function or macro, Class or struct, Functions calling this function, Functions called by this function, Class which owns this member or method, Members and methods of this class, Parent of this class (inheritance), Children of this class (inheritance), Files including this file, and Full path for file.
timeplotters is a collection of command line tools for visualizing temporal data. It is especially useful for visualizing data from ad-hoc program logs, helping you to spot patterns and anomalies that you would not otherwise see by just watching how the program works or by looking at the logs with the naked eye. Its input format is tailored to event types typically seen in program logs, and the visualization methods are tailored to the questions typically asked about program performance (e.g. distribution of activity durations).
Hypercube is a graph visualization tool for drawing DOT (graphviz), GML, GraphML, GXL and simple text-based graph representations as SVG and EPS images. It comes with a Qt-based GUI application and a Qt-independent commandline tool. Hypercube uses a simulated annealing algorithm to lay out the graph, which can be easily parameterized to achieve the desired look.
