Aspose.Pdf is a .NET PDF component to write PDF documents without using Adobe Acrobat. It supports form field creation, document, text and page properties, color space, text, heading, and attachment settings. It lets you create PDF documents by using its API with XML templates and XSL-FO files. It also converts HTML, XSL-FO, and MS Word to PDF. Other features include image formats and security features, hyperlinks, the ability to add footnotes, automatic fitting to content in a table, decimal Tab stops, HTML tags, and keeping paragraphs together when breaking pages.
PHP Emoticon Parser can replace emoticon text with HTML image tags. It can search for emoticon text characters in a given text string and replace them with equivalent emoticon images. The emoticon text and image mappings are defined in a separate script that maps emoticon names to the different equivalent representations for emoticon text symbols.
HOYRESPIRO is software developed for PEOPLE, a project promoting "smart cities" through rapid implementation, deployment, and uptake of innovative Internet-based services to face present challenges and improve future quality of life. HOYRESPIRO, developed for the pilot city of Bilbao, provides citizens with geo-referenced information about the air quality in and around the city, the pollen levels, the weather forecast, and weather information (updated every 10 minutes). It uses the existing network for environmental control of the city and the indicators developed with the data collected. The network consists of weather stations which measure atmospheric variables related to pollution and levels of pollen in the air.
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.
EO is a template-based, ANSI-C++ evolutionary computation library that helps you to write your own stochastic optimization algorithms quickly. Evolutionary algorithms form a family of algorithms inspired by the theory of evolution, and solve various problems. They evolve a set of solutions to a given problem in order to produce the best results. These are stochastic algorithms because they iteratively use random processes. The vast majority of these methods are used to solve optimization problems, and may be also called "metaheuristics". They are also ranked among computational intelligence methods, a domain close to artificial intelligence. With the help of EO, you can easily design evolutionary algorithms that will find solutions to virtually all kind of hard optimization problems, from continuous to combinatorial ones.
