RegMAS (Regional Multi Agent Simulator) is a spatially explicit multi-agent model framework, designed for long-term simulations of effects of government policies over agricultural systems (e.g. farm sizes, incomes, land use). RegMAS uses a profit-maximization algorithm to derive farmers' behaviors. Using RegMAS, researchers can write regional-specific models, adapting the pool of activities and resources to their specific region.
jAscom is a wrapper around the JACOB (JAva-COM Bridge) libraries for easy access to the ASCOM Platform 3.0 using Java. It provides all functionality (methods and properties) of the ASCOM Telescope API version 2. It also includes the Focuser and Dome API. This means easy and fast coding of Java applications for all sorts of telescope controlling problems, using a widely accepted standard.
This class is meant to generate graphical percentage bars made with star icons. It can be used to present the results of poll systems on which the generated percentage bars represent relative values of each poll choice. The class comes in two versions: one for drawing large stars and another for small stars. Several presentation details may be configured, like the star colors and the number of stars to present for 100% bars. The class generates the star bar images in PNG format.
