District Builder is a software application designed to give the public transparent, accessible, and easy-to-use mapping tools to draw the boundaries of their communities or to generate redistricting plans for their state and localities. The drawing of electoral districts is among the least transparent processes in democratic governance. All too often, redistricting authorities maintain power by obstructing public participation. The resulting districts embody the goals of politicians to the detriment of the representational interests of communities and the public at large. With District Builder, the public has the capacity to create and submit district plans for municipal, county, and state governments, support redistricting competitions, and keep the entire process open. In addition to legislative redistricting, District Builder's flexibility accommodates school districts, police districts, and many other redistricting needs.
WiFiDB is a set of scripts that is intended to manage wireless access points found with the Vistumbler wireless scanning software. WiFiDB also has support for importing Netsumlber summary files and Wardrive for Android database files. WiFiDB can also export access points with GPS to a Google Earth KML file, so you can see where the access points are located.
OpenTreeMap is software for collaborative, geography-enabled urban tree inventory. The software enables the public, organizations, and governments to collaboratively contribute to an interactive and dynamic map of a community’s tree population. Users can search for trees, add trees to the system, edit existing tree information, or upload tree photos. The system automatically calculates a tree's ecosystem benefits based on its species and diameter. OpenTreeMap can be used in a single municipality or to cover a broader geographic region with many communities, anywhere in the world. This software also exists as a subscription-based system.
LinRadiant is a level (map) editor for FPS games that use id Software's engines (Quake 1/2/3). It is a derivative of NetRadiant with an improved build system. It is very easy to build, even for people with little experience in software development. It has built-in support for the following games: Darkplaces, Wolfenstein:ET, Nexuiz, OpenArena, Quake, Quake 2, Quake2world, Quake III Arena, Q3MIN, Tremulous, Warsow, and Xonotic. The package contains a lot of useful documentation (mapping tutorials, technical documents, etc.) that are automatically installed and can be accessed from within the editor.
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.
ODB is a compiler-based object-relational mapping (ORM) system for C++. It allows you to persist C++ objects to a relational database without having to deal with tables, columns, or SQL and without manually writing any mapping code. The C++ code that performs the conversion between persistent classes and their database representation is automatically generated by the ODB compiler. The ODB compiler is a real C++ compiler except that instead of producing assembly or machine code, it generates portable C++, which can in turn be compiled by any C++ compiler. ODB is not a framework. It does not dictate how you should write your application. Rather, it is designed to fit into your style and architecture by only handling C++ object persistence and not interfering with any other functionality.
Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more about Earth: you can pan and zoom around, and you can look up places and roads. A mouse click on a place label will provide the respective Wikipedia article. It's also possible to measure distances between locations or watch the current cloud cover. Marble offers different thematic maps: a classroom-style topographic map, a satellite view, street map, earth at night, and temperature and precipitation maps. All maps include a custom map key, so it can also be used as an educational tool for use in classrooms. For educational purposes, you can also change the date and time and watch how the starry sky and the twilight zone on the map change. Marble also features multiple projections: choose between a flat map ("Plate carré"), Mercator, or the globe.
