WinMacro - A utility that can record sets of mouse and keyboard events and then play them from within a script or another Windows program. This allows controling external applications through their GUI, and can be usefull for situations in which an application needs to be activated automatically, but does not provide any other interface but its GUI.

Land Cover - A sample program that analyzes land cover features.

Stereo Matching in Noisy Sets of Color Images - A sample implementation of a stereo matching algorithm designed for nosiy sets of images.

AstroMatch - A Generic Field Matching Utility for Astronomical Images.

Faked Windows - An application that demonstrated a security concern in internet browsing using MS-Windows.

wndchrm - A multi-purpose image classifier. This command-line utility gets a root directory as a parameter and computes a large set (up to 2600) image features for each image in the class subdirectories. It can then split the images into training and test datasets and classifiy them. The code was tested on MacOS X and Linux. Use "configure" and "make" after untaring the files. Then type wndchrm for instructions.

Ganalyzer - A tool for automatic galaxy morphological image analysis.

Shamir, L., Ganalyzer - A tool for morphological analysis of galaxy images, The Astrophysical Journal, vol. 736, no. 2, 141. IPO, 2011.

FLC - A tool for automatic detection of peculiar images in an image dataset.

CHLOE - A tool for automatic outlier detection in microscopy images.

UDAT - Data analysis software -- coming soon.
