AutoStitch

AutoStitch
AutoStitch works from unordered collections of images, automatically finding matches between images using the SIFT algorithm. It then robustly aligns all images and uses advanced blending algorithms to form seamless panoramas (see below). For more details, see our research papers. 25 of 57 images aligned All 57 images aligned Final Result Note: Mobile versions of AutoStitch are developed by Cloudburst Research. AutoStitch is available to license from the University of British Columbia. AutoStitch is now available in the following commercial products: Autopano Pro www.autopano.net (Windows, Mac, Linux) Serif PanoramaPlus www.serif.com (Windows) Calico www.kekus.com (Mac) The University of British Columbia has also granted a commercial license to Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) www.ilm.com, a Lucasfilm Ltd. company, to use AutoStitch software to produce panoramas for film production. The version of AutoStitch on this website is a demo only. Q: What projection method does AutoStitch use?

Black Viper’s Windows XP x86 (32-bit) Service Pack 3 Service Configurations Introduction This information is valid for all versions of XP x86 (32-bit) running Service Pack 3. XP Pro x64 (64-bit) Service information and Configurations are also online. Before adjusting your service settings, ensure that you or your system has already installed all updates by “checking now” for any available updates via Windows Update. I cannot possibly test all configurations extensively (meaning, each persons specific computer needs), but what I can offer is what “works for me” and the obstacles I have came across so you do not have to discover them on your own. Notes for a Happier Computer and User Do not use “msconfig” to disable services, type “services.msc” in the Run box instead! Table Header Information The columns are sortable. Configuration Information Automatic ~ With a service in this state, it will start at boot time. Service Dependency Abbreviation Information H ~ Windows XP HomeM ~ Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005P ~ Windows XP ProT ~ Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005

Icons For Your Desktop and Icons For Your Web Designs | Graphics Advertisement The value of icons lies in their ability to communicate with visitors or users in a more intuitive and effective way. Jakob Nielsen, the maestro of usability, postulated few years ago1 that “recognition rather than recall” is one of the basic heuristics for user-friendly design. In fact, it’s necessary to “minimize the user’s memory load by making objects, actions, and options visible. Icons are supposed to achieve just that. In the overview below we present some of the fresh high-quality free icons which you can use for your desktop; we also showcase free professional icon sets, buttons and vector graphics you can use for your web designs. You can also scan through the icons-related articles we’ve published before: Icons for Your Desktop and Design Air Mail Icons5A replacement icon for Apple Mail or any other Mail application.

Font Generator Inkscape. Draw Freely. Walkthrough - Generating RDL Using the .NET Framework This walkthrough illustrates how to write Report Definition Language (RDL) to a report definition file using the XmlTextWriter class. The writer provides a fast, forward-only way of generating XML, thus RDL, and helps you to build report definition documents that conform to the RDL specification. The XmlTextWriter writes to a stream rather than using an object model such as the XML DOM, and so gives better performance. Typically, you use an XmlTextWriter if you need to write XML as raw data without the overhead of a DOM. During the course of this walkthrough, you will accomplish the following activities: Create an application using the Visual Studio .NET Console Application project template. Requirements To complete the walkthrough, you must have the following: Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Reporting Services Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET 2003 or a similar .NET Framework compatible development tool.

Tutorial: Generating RDL Using the .NET Framework This tutorial illustrates how to write Report Definition Language (RDL) to a report definition file using the System.Xml.XmlDocument class.,The XmlDocument class provides an XML document object model (DOM) you can use to quickly generate the data structure of an RDL, and helps you to build report definition documents that conform to the RDL specification. If you need to write XML as raw data without the overhead of a DOM, you can use an System.Xml.XmlTextWriter. The writer provides a fast, forward-only way of generating XML. During the course of this tutorial, you will complete the following activities: Create an application using the Visual Studio Console Application project template.Add a connection to the AdventureWorks2008R2 sample database.Write code to retrieve a list of fields for the data source.Write code to generate a simple report definition file that can be used to build a report.

Embedded Code In Reporting Services When I first installed Reporting Services I had read something about embedded code, and my head had filled with visions of grandeur. I pictured hooking events for customization and deriving new classes to override virtual functions. I expected an ASP.NET experience complete with code behind and a reporting engine under the hood. There are, however, lots of extensibility points in Reporting Services. Why Embed Code? Reporting Services gives you a number of functions to use in a report. Custom code comes in two forms. The second form of custom code is code embedded directly into a report. To use the code, we can select a textbox (or any control with a Color property that we want to set programmatically) and open the properties toolbox window. =Code.SetColor(Fields! One of the nice features of Reporting Services is the ability to use an expression instead of a hard value on any property. So where does the code live? <Report > ...

Compiling and Executing Code at Runtime Download source code - 18.3 Kb Well, this is my first article at The Code Project, so I'll try my best to stay on topic. I was recently interested in creating a sort of precedence calculator library. Well, I figured it wouldn't be easy, but there must be a way of making it work. This is the core of my library. public object ExecuteCode(string code, string namespacename, string classname, string functionname, bool isstatic, params object[] args) { object returnval = null; Assembly asm = BuildAssembly(code); object instance = null; Type type = null; if (isstatic) { type = asm.GetType(namespacename + "." + classname); } else { instance = asm.CreateInstance(namespacename + "." + classname); type = instance.GetType(); } MethodInfo method = type.GetMethod(functionname); returnval = method.Invoke(instance, args); return returnval; } This is the pubic interface to my library. That's basically it, that's all the code you need to compile and execute uncompiled code at runtime.

Executing Dynamic Code in .Net By Rick Strahl Last Update: September 8th, 2002 Code for this article: Dynamic code execution is a powerful feature that allows applications to be extended with code that is not compiled into the application. Users can customize applications and developers can dynamically update code easily. In this article, Rick takes a look what it takes to execute code dynamically with the .Net framework and introduces a class that simplifies the tasks by wrapping the details of the process in an easy to use interface that only requires a few lines of code. I come from an xBase background using Visual FoxPro for many years.

Raspberry Pi XBMC Media Center – A Complete Solution | Jason Carr I have to admit it’s taken a good amount of research and experimentation, but I finally have an XBMC media center solution on the Raspberry Pi that rivals what I used to have on my old power-sucking full-size PC. I’m writing this guide to help others get up and running with a stable solution as quickly as possible. I’ll be covering everything from the hardware pieces to the software and configuration. I’m also hoping this guide will be accessible to those who aren’t overly tech-inclined, and I’ll provide some support in the comments. Continue on after the break for the complete guide. Table of Contents Introduction What is a Raspberry Pi? The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer that you can buy for $35. The Pi has two USB ports, an 1/8″ audio port (headphone jack), an RCA video out (for standard definition TVs), an HDMI video out (for HDTVs), an SD card slot, and an ethernet port. What is XBMC?
