Lucid 3.3 available as a free download!!!kehan

Wed, 23 Dec 2009 10:34:39 +0000

It looks like the folk over at Lucid have decided to go with the Freemium model by offering Lucid 3.3 as a free download, while their feature rich flagship 3.5 version is available as a fully supported paid download. I think this is a brilliant move on their part and will see much more widespread […]

Ubuntu Please Implement support for OpenCL APIkehan

Wed, 24 Dec 2008 11:15:07 +0000

Just heard that the next version of OS-X (Snow Leopard) is going to support using the GPU for number crunching tasks. It’d be absolutely awesome if ubuntu could do this too. Now that OpenCL 1.0 is final, prioritising support would not only inspire developers to use linux, but also prove that we have the development […]

Testing Flockkehan

Wed, 14 Nov 2007 15:01:38 +0000

Flock is an interesting browser. It is based on Firefox, but has been optimised for social networking, and by default has plugins for numerous web2.0 websites. It also has a built in  blog editor (see  screenshot), which automatically acquired my screendump from my windows clipboard, and uploaded it to my flickr account for me. There’s […]

GrassBase User map thanks to Google AnalyticskehanGrass Website Hits

Thu, 19 Jul 2007 09:46:05 +0000

How anybody can even think about running a website without using something like Google Analytics is beyond me. I’ve just done an update (last friday) of our species descriptions and am now tracking views of all pages thanks to this amazing facility. It’s really gratifying to see that we’re being usedby all sorts of people, […]

Mon, 16 Jul 2007 09:01:33 +0000

This is very encouraging – this means that pictures that I have classified within Picasa, F-spot, G-Thumb, etc. iptc | iptc is a module that will extract iptc caption and keyword tags from images added to drupal. It depends on the image module. It uses a plugin system to allow different libraries to be […]

BPH-2: Periodicals with Botanical Content – Please make them electronic!!!kehanCreative Commons LicenceBPH-2

Fri, 13 Jul 2007 13:46:09 +0000

I’ve been using the famous BPH-2: Periodicals with Botanical Content to standardise journal names in GrassBase, and I have endless frustration with the fact that this work is a standard for TDWG but it is not available electronically. If the standard hopes to be useful towards projects like the Biodiversity Heritage Library and the Encyclopaedia […]

Geo Modulekehan

The Geo Module looks like a great way to have full GIS support within drupal. The geo module is the next generation geo-spatial module for Drupal. Like location, it provides storage for points, but it also supports the full range of OpenGIS Simple Features, such as lines and polygons. Geo takes advantage of spatially enabled […]

Rod Page has extended some cool work and made a nice tree viewable in GoogleEarth. Take a look at the picture below. And he may well add this as a facility in his amazing TreeViewX – bump. Rod, where’s the KML file (or am I missing something?) – I wanted to see if this would […]
