HEALPix is a set of scientific tools implementing the Hierarchical Equal Area isoLatitude Pixelation of the sphere. As suggested in the name, this pixelation produces a subdivision of a spherical surface in which every single pixel covers the same surface area. HEALPix provides various programs and libraries in C, C++, Fortran, GDL/IDL, Java, and Python which facilitate discretization, simulation, processing, analysis, and visualization of data on the sphere up to very high resolution. It is the state-of-the-art program used in astronomy and cosmology to deal with massive full-sky data sets.
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.
vsfplot is a 2D vector and scalar field plotter. It features Line Integral Convolution (LIC) on data, curvilinear scaled arrows following the flow lines, a mixed mode (scalar field map with overlaid vector field), handling of missing data to not interfere with the flow lines, generation of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) files (which are easily editable and convertible while preserving the best quality for inclusion in a PDF scientific article), and a color palette designed so the flows are uniformly readable when printed as greyscale.
Novembre is an extensible tool for analysis and visualization of topographic and spectroscopic data. It supports the RHK, WinSPM, Nanonis, and Createc file formats, but any other format can be added via plugins. Tools are also made available through plugins, and are focused on spectroscopy manipulation.
GraphInsight is visualization software that lets you explore graph data through high quality interactive representations. Data exploration and knowledge extraction from graphs is of great interest nowadays: knowledge is disseminated in social networks, and services are powered by cloud computing platforms. Data miners deal with graphs every day. Humans are extremely good at identifying patterns and outliers. Interacting visually with your data can give you better intuition and higher confidence in what you are looking for.
Fluere is a graphical software package for particle image velocimetry (PIV). Fluere is highly optimized for parallel processing and runs on multiple platforms. The goal of the project is to provide researchers and educators with high-quality velocimetry software that incorporates the latest advancements in PIV processing, while having complete knowledge of the algorithms used.
ViTables is a graphical browser for HDF5 and PyTables databases. It can open arbitrarily large files and browse their data and metadata in a variety of ways. Its capabilities include easy navigation through the data hierarchy, displaying of real data and its associated metadata, and simple yet powerful browsing of multidimensional data.
ArtTk is a graphic library based on Java/Swing offering an open development toolkit intended specifically for scientific and technical applications. It provides a set of widgets and functional modules a set of support modules (helpers) permitting dynamic definition of menus and tool bars from simple XML configured files, and supporting tooltips, icons, action commands, etc.; a very adaptable generic desktop, facilitating the assembly of Swing components in a specialized GUI; an extended Grid layout to simplify the development of advanced scientific applications; and a set of scientific and technical widgets, such as a dynamic memory footprint monitor, simple key-values based fields editors, a generic color gradient editor, etc.
