Salad (short for Letter Salad) is an efficient and flexible implementation of the well-known anomaly detection method Anagram by Wang et al. (RAID 2006). Salad is based on n-gram models, that is, data is represented as all of its substrings of length n. During training these n-grams are stored in a Bloom filter. This enables the detector to represent a large number of n-grams in little memory and still being able to efficiently access the data. Salad extends Anagram by allowing various n-gram types, a 2-class version of the detector for classification, and various model analysis modes.
MakeHuman is software for the modelling of three-dimensional humanoid characters. Features that make this software unique include a highly intuitive GUI and a high quality mesh, optimized to work in subdivision surface mode (for example, Zbrush). Using MakeHuman, a photo-realistic character can be modelled in less than 2 minutes.
Gerbil consists of an interactive visualization tool targeted at multispectral and hyperspectral image data, and a toolbox of common algorithms, e.g. for segmentation. Multispectral imaging has been gaining popularity and has been gradually applied to many fields besides remote sensing. However, due to the high dimensionality of the data, both human observers and computers have difficulty interpreting this wealth of information. Gerbil facilitates the visualization of the relationship between spectral and topological information in a novel fashion. It puts emphasis on the spectral gradient, which is shown to provide enhanced information for many reflectance analysis tasks. It also includes a rich toolbox for evaluation of image segmentation and other algorithms in the multispectral domain. The parallel coordinates visualization technique is combined with hashing for a highly interactive visual connection between spectral distribution, spectral gradient, and topology.
PyCAM generates toolpaths (GCode) for CNC machines out of 3D STL model files or 2D gravure contour files (SVG or DXF). The output of PyCAM can be imported into EMC2 or other machine controllers to direct the milling machine. PyCAM features different path generation strategies, cutter shapes, and post-processing options.
SLD Calculator is a GUI to calculate the characteristics of chemical compounds, especially the Neutron and X-Ray scattering length densities that are often required to know in scattering experiments. Furthermore, it offers internationalization support and is capable of switching the language at runtime.
GSL shell offers an interactive user interface that gives access to the GSL collection of mathematical functions. It is based on the powerful and elegant scripting language Lua. GSL shell is not just a wrapper over the C API of GSL, but offers a much more simple and expressive way to use GSL. The objective is to give the user the power to easily access GSL functions without having to write a complete C application. It also has a powerful module to produce plots or almost any kind of graphics based on data or functions.
BEAM is a toolbox and development platform for viewing, analysing, and processing of remote sensing raster data. Originally developed to facilitate the utilisation of image data from Envisat's optical instruments, BEAM now supports a growing number of other raster data formats such as GeoTIFF and NetCDF as well as data formats of other EO sensors such as MODIS, AVHRR, AVNIR, PRISM and CHRIS/Proba. Various data and algorithms are supported by dedicated extension plug-ins. It includes VISAT, an intuitive desktop application, a set of scientific tools running either from the command line or invoked by VISAT, and a rich Java API for the development of new remote sensing applications and BEAM extension plug-ins.
