uma::bson is a DOM-style C++ API for reading/writing BSON data. Unlike the MongoDB C++ API, which exposes a read-only interface with a separate interface for creating a BSON representation, this API allows reading/writing on the existing data. The API is designed primarily for serialising/deserialising BSON data to/from streams (files, socket connections, etc.).

Release Notes: This release adds a Document::isEquivalentTo method to compare two documents for equivalence, where two documents have the same elements but in different order (in contrast to equality check, which requires the same element ordering). It fixes a bug in BinaryData::getSize implementation where it was not reporting the 5 extra bytes (4 for the length of the binary data and 1 for the binary data type) included in the BSON representation. It refactors BinaryData to use a PIMPL to allow for efficient pass-by-value semantics.

Download Website 17 Dec 22:13 Fimex 0.41


Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.


Release Notes: This release comes bundled with an R interface, allowing R users to access gridded data from all supported formats. In addition, R users can use Fimex to detect the coordinate system of the data and simplify extraction. The extract.selectVariables option is much more intelligent, i.e. it automatically selects additional variables that are required to read the chosen variable, e.g. coordinates, projections, and bounds. It is possible to compile the Fimex library with log4cpp support for use in an environment where logging is important.
