MIDAS is a data acquisition system for small and medium size particle and nuclear experiments in physics running under Linux, Windows, and VxWorks. It contains all necessary software to gather data on front-end computers from VME, FASTBUS, and CAMAC, analyze data using PAW and ROOT, and store data on disks and tape. It contains a slow control system with history capabilities and a Web-based user frontend.
YAKS - Yet Another Khepera Simulator, is a Khepera simulator that uses prerecorded sensor values from a real robot in order to provide simulation speeds of 3600 times reality. It has support for the infrared sensors, light sensors, K213 vision turret, gripper arm, and more. The simulator comes with a GTK interface, a genetic algorithm (GA), and an artificial neural net (ANN).
The Mesh Viewer is an easy-to-use, lightweight application for displaying three dimensional models (triangular meshes) from a variety of file formats. It uses OpenGL to render the models. Triangular meshes can be displayed texture mapped (with optional bilinear filtering), solid, or as a wire frame (all lines or just the front lines). Loaded models can be rotated, translated, and scaled (all done with the mouse). The model is lighted by multiple light sources. Viewpoints can be saved.
txt2graph.pl is a tool (written in Perl) to visualize structures and dependencies between words in a text document via graphviz-tools (you can get graphviz at http://www.research.att.com/sw/tools/graphviz/). It runs on Windows, MacOs, Solaris, OSF, Irix, Linux. Feedback is welcome.
viztool generates diagrams of collections of Java classes. It presently has only two visualizations: one shows inheritance hierarchies, interfaces implemented and inner classes declared, the other, a more detailed view of the classes, including public fields and methods. It is structured to allow the implementation of other visualizations. It uses the Java 2D API for rendering, but does so with the expectation that the diagrams will be printed, rather than rendered to the screen (though screen rendering is supported).
Xrmap is a program running under X that can interactively display portions of the Earth, using the huge CIA world vector map. It is based on an earlier console utility 'rmap'. It features political boundaries, major and minor rivers, glaciers, lakes, canals, etc. The map remains accurate under a very large zoom factor, which can possibly exceed 100. Spherical, rectangular, Mercator and Miller projections are implemented, and all features can be interactively set from the GUI.
Karte_cgi interactively calculates maps via a Web interface. It is written in C. The program uses the map projections contributed by libproj. Its main purpose is to deliver dynamic Web content for projects visualizing geographic data like waypoints in sailing races, tracking of cargo, etc.
pdnmesh is an automatic, 2D Delaunay mesh generator, and a solver for finite element analysis. It is capable of producing PostScript output of the mesh and contours. It is possible to use DXF files as input after filtering. It requires GTK/GtkGLExt and Mesa/OpenGL or MFC (Win32), and is written in C.
