Solar Capture

The Earth-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory provides a live image feed of the sun at all times. The Solar Capture app basically displays these images from NASA and provides a simple interface for browsing them and saving to disk. This is especially handy for events like Venus transits or solar eclipses.

Just open the app, select an empty folder to store images, and it will start updating automatically. There is no need to set the update interval smaller than 15 minutes, as the images on the NASA server aren't updated more frequently.

Optimal Lunar Landing Analysis

The Optimal Lunar Landing Analysis software is part of the NASA International Space Apps Challege, and serves as a platform for processing lunar data in order to find optimal landing sites for spacecrafts.

The idea is to create an extensible framework for which multiple data sets are used by a series of analysis strategies to come up with a good landing solution while providing strong visual feedback mechanisms for both the strategy development phase and the strategy analysis phase.

So far two data sources have been implemented and five analysis strategies, as well as a robust multi-threaded backend and GUI.

The project is hosted on GitHub and licensed under the MIT License. I've spent a lot of time preparing the framework for others to expand on. Implementing strategies is really easy:

class ElevationAnalysisMap : public AnalysisMap
{
private:
ElevationDataMap *_elevationMap;

public:
explicit ElevationAnalysisMap(ElevationDataMap *elevationMap, QSettings *settings, QObject *parent = 0) {
// Init
_name = "Elevation Analysis";
_elevationMap = elevationMap;
}

virtual double calculateScoreForPoint(int x, int y) {
// Really trivial implementation: the higher the better...
int elevation = _elevationMap->getElevationAtPoint(x,y);
int minElevation = -9150;
int maxElevation = 10760;
return (double)(elevation - minElevation) / (double)(maxElevation - minElevation);
}
};

File Renamer

File Renamer lets you easily and quickly rename multiple files using a simple text editor. More than often this is much faster than using the OS's shell rename function on each file. The utility also features a quick find-and-replace utility to make common edits even faster.

File Renamer can be called from within Gnome on any file or folder.

Opening a folder lits all the files.

Find-and-replace can be useful.

File Renamer also works on OS X.

Clipboard Sharer

Clipboard Sharer lets you share a common logical clipboard between two machines on Linux, OS X, and Windows.

Clipboard Sharer sits quietly in your system tray.

You can access it's settings by right-clicking it.

Simple and straight-forward.

I plan on adding new features as I need them. Currently it only supports text, but files will surely come soon. Also, if someone requests it, I'll change the 1-1 relationship to 1-N (meaning you can connect any number of machines). A history tool will also be added soon, allowing you to fetch older clipboard elements.

Note: The binaries will require the Qt Runtime which can be found at http://qt.nokia.com/downloads.

New Finder

New Finder guarantees the ability to open a new Finder window, without the hassles of recycling already opened Finders or having Expose jump to a different desktop. It works best by placing the New Finder application right next to the Finder icon. It even comes with it's own Preference Pane for setting the default Finder location.

Archives

Below you will find some selected works of mine from the archives. Many of the works are almost 10 years old and reflect the software I was writing during my time in high school.

As soon as I manage to re-compile all my newer software, which reflects more of my creative work, I will post it here also.

SKATEster

SKATEster was a sort of online community sharing software for skateboarders. It enabled the uploading of different media, such as videos, images, and texts, to a central location which would be shared with the community. SKATEster was largely succesful in the beginning, having reached 3000 members in its first month, but was unfortunately shut down by its different free server hosts.
