The DataFinder is a lightweight application software for managing technical and scientific data. It was developed to manage large amounts of data, and allows data to be stored using a number of different storage interfaces (e.g. WebDAV, FTP, GridFTP, SRB, OpenAFS, or TSM). The structure of the data and descriptive metadata are stored in XML format on the central server and can be edited using the standardized WebDAV protocol.
libCVD is a very portable and high performance C++ library for computer vision, image, and video processing. The emphasis is on providing simple and efficient image and video handling and high quality implementations of common low-level image processing function. The library is designed in a loosely-coupled manner, so that parts can be used easily in isolation if the whole library is not required. The video grabbing module provides a simple, uniform interface for videos from a variety of sources (live and recorded) and allows easy access to the raw pixel data. Likewise, the image loading/saving module provides simple, uniform interfaces for loading and saving images from bitmaps to 64 bit per channel RGBA images. The image processing routines can be applied easily to images and video, and accelerated versions exist for platforms supporting SSE.
JAME is an application for creating fractals and other graphics artifacts. It is written in the Java language, with some native code to accelerate encoding of videos and images. It has a real-time, multi-threaded graphics engine with layers, filters, effects, a lot of formulas, and parameters. JAME supports operations such as continuous zoom of Mandelbrot and Julia sets, rotation, and color shifting. JAME has also advanced features such as networked computation and scripting. You can take photos of your fractals or record movies from your exploration paths. Photos and movies are stored in a database to be rendered in high resolution and exported to a file. JAME can be extended by plug-ins which provide fractals, formulas, filters, effects, and more.
OGSA-DAI is a product that supports distributed data management. Relational, XML, and file-based data is supported. A variety of popular database management systems are supported. The software also includes a collection of components for querying, transforming, translating, joining, and delivering data in different ways, and a simple toolkit for developing client applications. OGSA-DAI is designed to be extensible, so users can provide their own additional functionality.
Math::GSL is a Perl API to the GNU Scientific Library, which contains a large set of tools for writing scientific computing applications, like statistical distributions, special functions, random number generators, linear algebra, numeric integration/derivatives, FFTs, wavelets, and much more.
FreeCAD is a CAx RAD based on OpenCASCADE, Qt4, and Python. It features some key concepts like Macro recording, Workbenches, and the ability to run as a server. It's also platform-independent. It is is fully scriptable and designed to be easily extensible; only the core functionality is embedded into the core libraries, but all further functionality like support of triangle meshes, CAM, FEM, etc. is implemented in extension modules. Normally, such a module is divided into an 'App' part containing the data structures and algorithms and a 'GUI' containing the graphical representation of data structures, dialogs, workbenches, etc.
