Aletheia
In short, Aletheia is software for getting science published and into the hands of everyone, for free. It's a decentralised and distributed database used as a publishing platform for scientific research. So, Aletheia is software. But software without people is nothing. To comprehensively answer the question what is Aletheia, Aletheia is software surrounded by a community of people who want to change the world through open access to scientific knowledge. For a more in depth explanation, Aletheia is an Ethereum Blockchain application utilising IPFS for decentralised storage that anyone can upload documents to, download documents from, that also handles the academic peer review process. The application runs on individual PCs, all forming part of the IPFS database. This gives us an open source platform that cannot be bought out by the large publishers (and any derivitive works must also be open source) that should also be hard to take down due to the database being spread across the globe in multiple legal jurisdictions. Aletheia is designed to be a resilient platform run transparently by the community, not some black box corporation or editorial board, meaning all users can see the decisions Aletheia is making and have a stake in that decision making process if they so desire. By this nature, Aletheia is decentralised, it has no key person risk. Should the core group who invented Aletheia dissapear Aletheia won't cease to exist, it will continue to be run by the community. The community moderates content through various mechanisms (peer review, reputation scores etc.,) to ensure quality of content.
Avaneya
Whether you are a fan of science fiction, a space–science enthusiast, hobbyist, photographer, gamer or a patron of grass–roots libre arts and technology, you are sure to find the first successful images from the surface of Mars highly captivating. These mind blowing images were taken by NASA's Viking landers during the highly ambitious, billion–dollar mission first launched in 1975. However, many images were nearly lost to history due to magnetic tape deterioration and archaic proprietary technology. With NASA's blessing, our team developed the technology to recover many of these images. This research tool was part of the design phase of our parent project, Avaneya — our upcoming libre cerebral science fiction game for the GNU operating system set on Mars, described in the words of Richard Stallman as an exciting, pioneering project. Originally an internal research tool, overwhelming public interest compelled us to release the technology on this DVD for all. Now everyone can relive the original breathtaking experience that captured the world's attention and marked the first successful moment in history that humanity saw Mars — not as a distant, impersonal, celestial body, beheld through a telescope for centuries, but as a tangible and alien world well within its reach.
Bcrypt
Password hashing Python library.
FreeLIMS
FreeLIMS is a Laboratory Information Management System ( LIMS ). Manage samples; create sample types from methods & parameters; easily generate reports & certificates; fine tune user rights. FreeLIMS is Open Source and Free.
GNOME Water Temperature Applet
The GNOME Water Temperature Applet displays water temperatures of rivers, lakes and oceans in your GNOME panel.
GeoNature
GeoNature is a suite composed of six different tools for the collection, management and distribution of wildlife data, and the administration of users and taxonomy repositories. The purpose of this suite is to build a tool that presents updated information on all sightings of the local species spotted by the national park’s agents.
GeoTIFF Viewer
GeoTIFF Viewer is a simple viewer for GeoTIFF files, which are georeferenced raster images, typically used for maps.
Geotrek
Geotrek is an free software solution composed of a Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping tool, a website and a mobile application, for management and support to the development and preservation of the natural territory. The development of Geotrek started as a cooperation between the Écrins National Park and the Mercantour National Park in France, under contract with the software company Makina Corpus. Later, the Alpi Marittime Nature Park joined the project, taking the solution across the border to Italy. As of 2022, close to 20 national parks across France have reused the code and configured their maps with data on the trails and activities. The solution includes three components:
  • Geotrek-Admin, for the management of the paths by the National Parks and Tourism organisations, with GIS features. The managing parties can draw and manage the hiking trails with sections and topological networks.
  • Geotrek-Rando, web application for the promotion of activities, for search and display of the hiking trails within the national park. Users can filter the results based on activity, distance, difficulty, and other characteristics.
  • Geotrek-Mobile, for easy access to Geotrek’s functionalities on the go/while in nature (for both Android and iOS).
Gstat
Gstat is a computer program for geostatistical modelling, prediction and simulation in one, two, or three dimensions. Gstat uses gnuplot (a program for plotting functions) to display sample variograms and variogram functions. The program has a flexible command language. Spatial prediction options range from simple kriging to universal cokriging.
