Software

During the course of my research and teaching I have written a number of specialist software applications - often to help deal with a particular problem. These also include Excel Worksheets for specific tasks.


Feel free to download the files below. Please be aware that I am not able to provide any technical support for them.




WINDOWS SOFTWARE

>TIR TOOLKIT< Converts Meteosat TIR channel DN to radiance/temperature

>6ToTemp< Converts Meteosat 6 DN to radiance/temperature

>Bat6ToTemp< Batch processes Meteosat 6 DN values to radiance/temperature

>SolarCalc< Converts hour/day/lat to Solar zenith/azimuth/elevation angles

>BatSolar< Batch conversion of hour/day/lat to Solar angles

>Compile< Scans directory of BURS Autosat files and decodes filenames

>Met2IDA< Converts BURS Autosat (inc BLOCK) files to IDA/Windisp format
(REQUIRES >aut2ida.exe< and >autb2ida.exe< to work)

>Filechange< Converts cryptic BURS Autosat filenames to more logical form

>GraphClock< A Graphical clock

>MetBrowse< Once commercial now free - Meteorology Lab software
(Unlock Code: GUPX47N)

>MetCalc< Calculates range of humidity values from WET/DRY Bulb temperatures

>ProxyCalc< Calculates proxy air temperature from Meteosat TIR DN

>QuickTools< QuickTools utility desktop software (FREE!)

>LLPDC< Calculates straight-line distance between two Lat/Lon coordinates

>BNA_Maker< Creates Point BNA (vector) file from spreadsheet input for WinDisp

>G2C< Converts a grid of values in a textfile to a single column of values

>RLLPC< Creates random points within a designated geographical area - optional CSV/KML output

>UNIX2DOS< Converts test files in UNIX format to MSDOS format

>LSTools< Landsat Tools. Creates the expressions for Radiance/Reflectance/Temperature product

creation (ArcGIS and Erdas Imagine etc) for Landsat data downloaded from GLOVIS




EXCEL WORKSHEETS

>DAISY WORLD< An Excel implementation of DaisyWorld model

>LOS NDVI ALGORITHM< Implementation of Los algorithm for sensor degradation

>TRIGHEIGHT< Allows distance to be calculated from Abney Level reading




APPLE MACINTOSH OS X

>HUMIDCALC<

What it does:


Accepts a WET bulb temperature (in degrees celsius) and a DRY bulb temperature (in degrees celsius) from either a portable instrument (such as a whirling or Assman hygrometer) OR fixed instruments located in a standard Stevenson screen.


The Calculate button, when pressed will produce the following:


1) Saturation Vapour Pressure (@ DRY bulb temp) in hPa (mb)

2) Saturation Vapour Pressure (@ WET bulb temp) in hPa (mb)

3) Vapour Pressure in hPa (mb)

4) Saturation Deficit in hPa (mb)

5) Absolute Humidity in grams of water per cubic metre of air

6) Specific Humidity in grams of water per kilogram of air

7) Relative Humidity in percent


The program is provided without any warranty or support and is completely free.

>LLPDC<

What it does:


Accepts a pair of Latitude/Longitude coordinates, and then calculates the straight-line distance between them in kilometres


The program is provided without any warranty or support and is completely free.

>GPS InfoTool V1.0 Install package EXE (requires ActiveSync)<

>GPS InfoTool V1.0 CAB file for Manual Installation<


Note: Some older versions of WinCE require the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework to be installed on your device. You can download it >HERE<


What it does:


If your device has access to a GPS, this application will show you your current Latitude, Longitude, Elevation, Speed and number of satellites being tracked.


The Device, if a phone or connected to the internet will also:


1) Send an SMS message with embedded Google Map link

2) Send an email with embedded Google Map link

3) Send an email with current position and a Google Map link automatically at a time interval (in minutes) you choose


The program is provided without any warranty or support and is completely free.
