BaKoMa Fonts for NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP

See the separate entry under NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP.

CGT (Clinical Guidance Tree) Viewer

Summary:

The CGT (Clinical Guidance Tree) project developed a notation and tools for decision trees in healthcare. The main tool developed by this project was the CGT Viewer. Note that this tool was not developed by the author - it is provided here as a courtesy by the CGT team. Because of dependencies on Microsoft Visual J++, the code is provided only in binary form for Microsoft Windows.

The original work on CGT has been generalised and extended on the AD/IT project (Abstract Decision/Interactive Trees). See the AD/IT home page for an overview of this.

Needs: Microsoft Windows XP

Usage: See README file

Source: Obtain cgt-2.9.exe by http (the download is over 13MB)

Chive (Cress Home-grown Interactive Visual Editor)

Summary:

Chive (Cress Home-grown Interactive Visual Editor) is a dedicated graphical editor designed to create service diagrams for use by Cress (Communication Representation Employing Systematic Specification). See the Cress home page for an overview of Cress.

Needs: JVM (to run) or JDK (to modify/recompile) - version 1.6 or later

Usage: See README file

Source: Obtain chive-2.0.zip by http

Cress (Communication Representation Employing Systematic Specification)

Summary:

Cress (Communication Representation Employing Systematic Specification) is a graphical notation and toolset for specifying, analysing and implementing service specifications. It has been used for DS (Device Services), GS (Grid Services), IN (Intelligent Network), IVR (Interactive Voice Response), SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) and WS (Web Services). See the Cress home page for an overview of Cress. Be aware that this is an extremely complex toolset and that the author will be able to give no or very limited technical help with it.

Needs:

Usage: See README file

Source: The code is not downloadable online. Instead, anyone wishing to use the software must apply to the author (). Requests can be accepted only from permanent members of staff; contract researchers and students must ask an appropriate person to apply. The request must include a statement that accepts the Cress licence on behalf of the applicant's organisation. It is suggested that the licence be appended to the request so that it is clear what is being accepted.

IPCamera (IP Camera Image Retrieval)

Summary:

IPCamera retrieves images from an IP Camera such as the Tenvis JPT3815 and similar models by the same and other manufacturers. Additional code is provided to create web pages statically and dynamically.

Needs: JDK (to modify/recompile the core program); optionally needs Perl to run an auxiliary program, and Perl CGI support for dynamic web pages

Usage: See README file

Source: Obtain ipcamera-1.0.zip by http

Sailing Signal Flags

Summary:

This type 3 (user-defined) PostScript font contains all the signal flags normally used in sailing (racing). The font is supplied in NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP format, i.e. it contains an outline file and an AFM (Adobe Font Metric) file. It may be possible to use these files on other platforms (e.g. MS Windows, MacOS, Linux), though I do not (yet) know how to do this.

Needs: PostScript

Usage: See README file

Source: Obtain flag-font.zip by http

TerraWiz (Landscape Generation Wizard for Terragen)

Summary:

TerraWiz (Landscape Generation Wizard for Terragen) that helps to create simple landscapes using Terragen 2 (Terrain Generator - Version 2). Although TerraWiz achieves much less than Terragen, it helps beginners to create interesting landscapes without having to learn too much. The landscapes created by TerraWiz can also be used as a starting point for more complex effects with Terragen.

Needs: JVM (to run) or JDK (to modify/recompile) - version 1.6 or later; also needs Terragen 2

Usage: See README file

Source: Obtain terrawiz-1.0.zip by http

Other Sources of Graphical Utilities

There are many public domain and shareware PostScript fonts/utilities available on the archives. You might also wish to visit Adobe for AFM files, some free fonts and other utilities.
