STARS is an exploratory data analysis package designed for variables measured for geographical units over time. It combines a series of statistical graphics and mapping views together with some newly developed measures for space- time statistical analysis. It also includes utility methods for creating different types of geographical weight matrices, variable transformations, and for reading ArcView shapefiles to develop related projects.
McIDAS-Lite is a freely available demo for the full McIDAS software. It will connect to a variety of free online data sources for satellite data and display the images in a viewing window. Images can be looped and analyzed, and graphics overlays can be created to show maps and other geographical features. It is available for AIX, HP-UX, Irix, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris Sparc, Solaris x86, and Windows XP with SFU.
Open2300 is a package of software tools that reads (and writes) data from a Lacrosse WS2300, WS2305, WS2310, or WS2315 Weather Station. It includes tools that save data to logfiles, XML files, and MySQL databases, as well as tools that upload your weather data to Weather Underground or Citizen Weather. You can control the display backlight, reset min/max values, and read and write to any memory location. It includes a function library for your own programs and a number of small PHP programs.
MarsClock is designed to aid engineers, astronomers, Gods of War, Hrossa, and specifically mission controllers for the upcoming NASA MER and ESA Beagle-II missions to Mars. It converts to and from Earth time (Local and UTC) and Mars time (Local Mean Solar Time and Local True Solar Time) for any location.
Wifimap is a Web-based application that graphically documents the organisation and growth of a wireless network community. The map is composed of numerous square cells that are recombined to display the required area. Users can start with just a few cells to cover their area, and can access different areas of the network by scrolling through the cells. New cells can be easily added using a built in editor. Cells can be added at different zoom levels allowing users to zoom in and out of the map. The design makes it very fast, and it can be run on low powered servers. Wireless nodes can be added or edited with a few mouse clicks. Links between the nodes are automatically drawn based on the data entered for each node, and colours are used to represent different wireless protocols.
Tkgeomap is a set of extensions to the Tcl/Tk scripting language for accessing, manipulating, and displaying geographic data. The extensions add commands that perform basic cartographic calculations, define and use projections, store data in lines and as named places, and display the data in canvas widgets.
GraphPak is a programming library of 2D and 3D charting objects for the Qt toolkit. It provides software developers with a set of C++ objects to easily create charts or graphs that aid in the visual presentation of technical and business data. This release includes Bar, Line, Pie, Ring, Area, Hi-Lo, Box and Whisker, and Polar charts. It is based on the KD Chart product from Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB.
