G.Projector transforms an equirectangular map image into any of over 125 global and regional map projections. Longitude-latitude gridlines and continental outlines may be drawn on the map, and the resulting image may be saved to disk in GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG, PS or TIFF form. G.Projector is a cross-platform application that runs on Macintosh, Windows, Linux and other desktop computers. The current version of G.Projector is 1.8, released 2015-09-18.

SimpleDEMViewer About SimpleDEMViewer browses DEM ( Digital Elevation Model ) data as a relief map. It displays colored map with shading. Since no data is included in this package, user should prepare DEM data separately. SimpleDEMViewer draws bird's-eye view, stereographs, panorama view, grayscale map, orthographical, Mercator and other projection maps. DEMs supported TatukGIS Free Viewer The TatukGIS Editor is a professional, general-purpose desktop GIS mapping and data editing application with built-in scripting environment for customization and feature extensions.

Whitebox GAT The Whitebox GAT project began in 2009 and was conceived as a replacement for the Terrain Analysis System (TAS). Whitebox GAT was intended to have a broader focus than its predecessor, positioning it as an open-source desktop GIS and remote sensing software package for general applications of geospatial analysis and data visualization. Whitebox GAT is intended to provide a platform for advanced geospatial data analysis with applications in both environmental research and the geomatics industry more broadly. It was envisioned from the outset as providing an ideal platform for experimenting with novel geospatial analysis methods. Equally important is the project’s goal of providing a tool that can be used for geomatics-based education.

Scientists gauge power of mighty asteroid that shaped Earth A monster asteroid, far more massive than the one that drove the dinosaurs to extinction, punched a huge hole in the Earth's crust billions of years ago and triggered global earthquakes that sent waves of towering tsunamis across all the world's oceans. Stanford scientists studying ancient rocks in a region of East Africa known as the Barberton Greenstone have for the first time modeled the asteroid's impact and concluded that it must have been one of the most powerful events to ever shape the face of Earth. The jumbled rocks there hold clear evidence of the stuff thrown up by the asteroid's impact roughly 3.26 billion years ago, but no one has found just where the crater-forming asteroid actually hit, said Stanford geologist Donald Lowe, who has explored the jumbled rocks of the Barberton area for more than a decade.

Osmium Library A fast and flexible C++ library for working with OpenStreetMap data Features The Osmium Library has extensive support for all types of OSM entities: nodes, ways, relations, and changesets.
