Software

by Ross A. Beyer


Like most hackers, I've written tons of little programs to accomplish this or that goal specific to the problem that I was working on at the time, and not too much that I figured other folks would be interested in. However, there are a few things.

Any recent shared development work is now available via my GitHub page.

I haven't really added anything here since 2008, except for improvements to the LPSC abstract template (which I really should move to GitHub). Many of these things are like ancient messages in a bottle from a bygone time of computing. I have other bits and really should get them posted here or elsewhere. In the meantime, my big open source computing project of the last decade has been the Ames Stereo Pipeline.

Databases - Database related software

This tool allows one to compare the data in two tables in a MySQLTM database server to see which data in which rows differ between the two.

This is a LaTeX template for submission to the Journal Icarus, since they don't provide one.

ISIS 2 Programs
These are programs that I've written to help me perform some tasks more easily in the ISIS 2 environment.
mola2gmt
This Perl program acts as a wrapper around GMT programs to convert raw MOLA gridded data into a netCDF format that GMT can use.

This is a relatively simple Perl program that can be used as a CGI to manage a gallery of images and display them at random (or not so random).

I made some money on the side during graduate school by doing web work and supporting programming for the Planetary Image Research Laboratory. These are programs that I worked on during that time that we have distributed.
