ARSF Scripts and Binaries

Please keep this page updated. Also please keep it sorted in a sensible order or we're never going to be able to find anything...


Script Language Use bash Checks the ASCII LiDAR files in the delivery for erroneous data
classify_las Binary (C) LiDAR classification bash Runs classify_las on a set of LAS files using a specified classification algorithm Python Creates a Readme for lidar deliveries
lag Binary (C) LiDAR file viewer bash Convert a directory of LAS files or a single LAS file into ascii format bash Merges sets of LAS files of the form *_000.LAS, *_001.LAS... etc. together
LASsorter Python sorts Las files by time, x, y, z , ascending and descending bash Generates an azgcorr-format ASCII DEM from old Optech lidar point cloud files Python Reads old Optech LiDAR files and outputs a numeric histogram for use in filtering bash Create a LiDAR delivery folder bash Create a lidar dem or intensity image from ascii lidar files
pt_cloud_filter Binary (C) Removes points of a specified classification from ascii lidar point cloud


Script Language Use bash Determines lat/lon for flight from Eagle/Hawk header files bash Determines BNG grid squares for flight from Eagle/Hawk header files bash Script to use IGM files to generate a GLT file and map level 1 data bash Creates a hyperspectral delivery folder bash Script to convert GeoTIFFs into JPGs and create a mosaic image (with vectors) Python Get the North/South/East/West extent of a number of hdr files in bng coords Python Test specified Eagle/Hawk framerates against actual framerates calculated from qpfTiming Python Create a LaTeX file for a PDF Readme for Hyperspectral deliveries Python Truncates BIL files so that the file size matches what the header file says it should
fastQC Binary (C) Program for viewing BIL files (raw data or level 1) Python Auto-renames (line numbers and removes sct section) level 1, level 3, screenshots for a delivery. Python Generates config files for hyperspectral data processing Python Generates a synthetic Eagle or Hawk dataset Python Generates a synthetic SBET file Python Extracts boresight values for given day from data file Python Extracts calibration file names for given day from data file Python Gets North/South/East/West extent of (part of) an SBET file in lat/lon
getposition Python Gets position information at from an SBET file for a specified time (or file limits) Python Finds sync records on one or more AISA nav files Python Outputs mean altitude, heading and speed from an SBET file for a number of Eagle or Hawk lines Python Checks which of a selection of Eagle/Hawk header files have compatible binning, framerate and integration time settings Python Merges a .cfg and a .sync (eagle/hawk line sct offsets)
nav2txt Binary (C) Output contents of an AISA nav file to an ASCII text file Python Runs az suite on specified Eagle/Hawk flightline for processing Python Cuts a chunk of an AISA nav file out into a smaller nav file Python Searches Eagle/Hawk raw files for dropped frames by looking at the band 1 frame counter Python Submits an ARSF project for processing through the grid engine


Script Language Use Python Creates a LaTeX file for generating a PDF read_me for delivery
image_events_file_fixer Python Corrects image event files, mainly by using a sol/sbet file to correct position accuracy bash Creates a Photograph delivery folder bash Converts RCD TIF files to JPG thumbnails
rename_photos_update_events_file Python generates new file names for tiffs and their entries in the image events file
tag_tiffs Python Adds tags to tiff files (using image event files) which define position, attitude and other metadata


Script Language Use Python uses grass to produce tiff images of vectors
az_log_cleaner Python Removes normal output from az logs to leave only important messages Python Converts binary files from one data type to another (eg. Float32 -> Int16) Python Converts BNG numeric grid references to OS grid square co-ordinates Python Reads eagle or hawk header files and SBET file to generate a list of the DEM tiles that the SBET covers bash Converts dems from az format header to grass header bash Converts dems from grass format header to az header Python Converts .doc or .odt files to PDF format Python Finds linux-unfriendly characters in filenames Python Creates a config file for hyperspectral and camera read_me generators bash Convert GML Vector files to Shapefiles
gpstime Python Converts GPS time-of-week to human-readable format and vice-versa Python Lists contents of an HDF file to the terminal
hdf_to_bil Python converts hdf files to bil files bash Converts specified lat/lon into BNG co-ordinates (wrapper around appropriate proj command) Python Sets defined bad pixels in a BIL or BSQ file to be a mask value
ppv_to_envi_igm Python converts a ppv file (whatever those are) to an igm file and creates a envi header file for it bash Symlinks all files in a source directory into a target directory
teqc Binary (third-party) Program for slicing/splicing/fiddling with RINEX or other GPS base station data (like raw data) Python Searches E/H headers and gets start/stop times for importing into Grafnav to show on trajectory Python Extracts date from Trimble GPS format file names

Libraries Python Functions to convert numbers to letters and back (A=1, B=2 etc) Python Reads AISA band (.prn) files Python Sorts config files into sensible order (can also be executed directly) Python Reads/writes BIL and BSQ files Python Converts GPS time-of-week to human-readable format and vice-versa Python Gets mean altitude, heading and speed from an SBET file for a number of Eagle or Hawk lines Python Functions to manipulate SBET files, also limited AISA nav file support


Script Language Use Python Part of old processing job submission system Python Convert GeoTIFFs to JPEGs
