ThinLinc is a fast and versatile remote desktop solution. It is based on open source software such as TigerVNC, SSH, and PulseAudio. The ThinLinc server software can be used to publish Linux/Unix desktops and applications to thin clients. The system also supports Windows Remote Desktop Services and VirtualBox. ThinLinc supports redirection of sound, serial ports, disk drives, local printers, and Smart Card readers. Clients are available for a wide variety of platforms. When used with the VirtualGL software, ThinLinc can deliver high performance graphics with OpenGL applications in a thin client environment.
iMorph is cross platform 3D image analysis software. It permits the morphological characterization of porous media, and more precisely cellular materials. The first step of the analysis is a macroscopical characterization of the different phases. It allows porosity, tortuosity, and specific surface measurement. The anisotropy is also quantified at the sample scale. In a second step, the software gives a morphological study at the pore scale. Automatic methods for cell extraction give access to shape analysis, classification, and orientation. Moreover, it permits a local voxel classification in order to identify local shape such as shell, plates, and rods. Finally, the software gives a topological description by generating the graphs of both the solid and fluid phase. The human interface is intuitive and can be used by a non-expert of image processing. 3D visualization uses OpenGL libraries and allows interaction with segmented objects. An XML samples database is used to store results belonging to a region of interest in the media.
