A library and reference application for viewing and analysing raster and vector geospatial data.
ProtoMol is an object-oriented component based framework for molecular dynamics simulations.
Pyfort is a tool for creating extensions to the Python language with Fortran routines. It supports F77-interfaced routines now, with plans for supporting more of F90 later.
Lush is a Lisp dialect with extensions for object-oriented and array-oriented programming. Lush is intended for prototyping numerically intensive applications and is designed for easy integration of existing C/C++/Fortran codes.
2D/3D Scene Graph rendering engine for Linux/Unix/Win32 layered atop OpenGL. Supports stereoscopy, volume rendering, 2D/3D texture mapping, picking, LOD and view-dependent operations, cross-platform text, constant-rate rendering and image-based data.
Tools to process and visualize scientific data and images
Teem is a set of ANSI C libraries for manipulation, measurement, and visualization of structured scientific data. Includes N-dimensional image I/O and processing, volume rendering, diffusion tensor processing, ray tracing, PostScript rendering, and more.
darknocK detects edges in images. It is using Artificial Neural Networks to enchance the results of standard algorithms.
The OpenSceneGraph (OSG) is a cross platform C++, OpenGL based library for real-time visualization, with uses such as vis-sim, scientific modelling and games.
Bayesian Network tools in Java (BNJ) is an open-source suite of software tools for research and development using graphical models of probability. It is published by the Kansas State University Laboratory for Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD).
General C++ Library, with modules for Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and much more.
SPRING is a real-time surgical simulation system with soft-tissue modeling and networked haptics. SPRING is cross-platform (Unix, Windows, and OS X.) Written in C++ with OpenGL, SPRING reads many common 3-D file formats and supports parallel processing.
XMIPP is an image processing suite for 3D-reconstruction of biological specimens from transmission electron microscopy data. NOTE that stable releases (including binaries) are longer stored at Sourceforge, but are available at http://xmipp.cnb.csic.es
AIPS is a set of libraries and tools to aid researchers in the fast development of new image processing algorithms and tools. It is specifically designed to provide a consistent interface to the vast number of image processing libraries in the field.

Java/XML toolkit for research using Bayesian networks and other graphical models of probability (exact and approximate inference, structure learning, etc.)
An extension of Code_Aster to add multilingual support to it's varying GUI interfaces included in the default package. Eventually, we also intend to extend Code_Aster by contributing command file templates and extending the analysis abilities.
A toolkit for simulation and evolutionary design for robotics.
The Delta code is an nonlinear aeroelastic solver written in fortran 90. At the moment only vortex lattice aerodynamics is available but the hope is for a higher fidelity aerodynamic model to be developed for use in the current code. Linux and Unix.
EMBOSS is a dynamic and comprehensive Open Source package for bioinformatics (DNA and protein sequence analysis, protein structure, phylogenetics, etc.). EMBOSS is written in C, also compatible with C++, and has a separate Java interface (Jemboss)
Multicore SWARM (Software and Algorithms for Running on Multicore Processors) is an open source library for developing efficient and portable implementations that make use of multi-core processors. David A. Bader (Georgia Tech) began SWARM in 1994.
