  • RWebData: A High-Level Interface to the Programmable Web

    • Abstract: The rise of the programmable web offers new opportunities for the empirically driven sciences. The access to, compilation and preparation of data from the programmable web for statistical analysis can, however, involve substantial up-front costs for the practical researcher. The R-package RWebData provides a high-level framework that allows data to be easily collected from the programmable web in a format that can be used directly for statistical analysis in R without bothering about the data’s initial format and nesting structure. It was developed specifically for users who have no experience with web technologies and merely use R as statistics software. This paper provides an overview of the high-level functions, explains the basic architecture of the package, illustrates the implemented data mapping algorithm, and discusses RWebData’s further development and reuse potential. Funding statement: The author acknowledges financial support from the University of Basel Research Fund as well as support from the Swiss National Science Foundation (grant 168848).

  • Tethys – A Python Package for Spatial and Temporal Downscaling of
           Global Water Withdrawals

    • Abstract: Downscaling of water withdrawals from regional/national to local scale is a fundamental step and also a common problem when integrating large scale economic and integrated assessment models with high-resolution detailed sectoral models. Tethys, an open-access software written in Python, is developed with statistical downscaling algorithms, to spatially and temporally downscale water withdrawal data to a finer scale. The spatial resolution will be downscaled from region/basin scale to grid (0.5 geographic degree) scale and the temporal resolution will be downscaled from year to month. Tethys is used to produce monthly global gridded water withdrawal products based on estimates from the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM). Funding statement: PNNL is operated for DOE by Battelle Memorial Institute under contract DE-AC05-76RL01830 Published on 2018-02-09 18:17:12
  • webMUSHRA — A Comprehensive Framework for Web-based Listening Tests

    • Abstract: For a long time, many popular listening test methods, such as ITU-R BS.1534 (MUSHRA), could not be carried out as web-based listening tests, since established web standards did not support all required audio processing features. With the standardization of the Web Audio API, the required features became available and, therefore, also the possibility to implement a wide range of established methods as web-based listening tests. In order to simplify the implementation of MUSHRA listening tests, the development of webMUSHRA was started. By utilizing webMUSHRA, experimenters can configure web-based MUSHRA listening tests without the need of web programming expertise. Today, webMUSHRA supports many more listening test methods, such as ITU-R BS.1116 and forced-choice procedures. Moreover, webMUSHRA is highly customizable and has been used in many auditory studies for different purposes. Published on 2018-02-05 19:12:06
  • PLEASE: The Python Low-energy Electron Analysis SuitE – Enabling Rapid
           Analysis of LEEM and LEED Data

    • Abstract: PLEASE, the Python Low-energy Electron Analysis SuitE, provides an open source and cross-platform graphical user interface (GUI) for rapid analysis and visualization of low energy electron microscopy (LEEM) data sets. LEEM and the associated technique, selected area micro-spot low energy electron diffraction (μ-LEED), are powerful tools for analysis of the surface structure for many novel materials. Specifically, these tools are uniquely suited for the characterization of two-dimensional materials. PLEASE offers a user-friendly point-and-click method for extracting intensity-voltage curves from LEEM and LEED data sets. Analysis of these curves provides insight into the atomic structure of the target material surface with unparalleled resolution. Published on 2018-02-05 19:07:13
  • A Random-Dot Kinematogram for Web-Based Vision Research

    • Abstract: Web-based experiments using visual stimuli have become increasingly common in recent years, but many frequently-used stimuli in vision research have yet to be developed for online platforms. Here, we introduce the first open access random-dot kinematogram (RDK) for use in web browsers. This fully customizable RDK offers options to implement several different types of noise (random position, random walk, random direction) and parameters to control aperture shape, coherence level, the number of dots, and other features. We include links to commented JavaScript code for easy implementation in web-based experiments, as well as an example of how this stimulus can be integrated as a plugin with a JavaScript library for online studies (jsPsych).

  • pyObs: Open-Source Software for Computer-Assisted Behavioral Observation

    • Abstract: pyObs is a computer-assisted behavioral observation coding system used to record social interaction among children in classroom and playground settings. Its flexible architecture allows it to be useful for capturing behaviors occurring in settings that vary across age group or context. Written in Python, pyObs has a cross-platform GUI using drop down menus and check boxes along with audio and visual cues that increase coder reliability. Time-stamped GIS maps record subject location. And data are output into standard formats, such as csv. pyObs is extensible, making it simple to change the interface depending on the research objectives. Published on 2018-01-26 23:46:25
  • PyPSA: Python for Power System Analysis

    • Abstract: Python for Power System Analysis (PyPSA) is a free software toolbox for simulating and optimising modern electrical power systems over multiple periods. PyPSA includes models for conventional generators with unit commitment, variable renewable generation, storage units, coupling to other energy sectors, and mixed alternating and direct current networks. It is designed to be easily extensible and to scale well with large networks and long time series. In this paper the basic functionality of PyPSA is described, including the formulation of the full power flow equations and the multi-period optimisation of operation and investment with linear power flow equations. PyPSA is positioned in the existing free software landscape as a bridge between traditional power flow analysis tools for steady-state analysis and full multi-period energy system models. The functionality is demonstrated on two open datasets of the transmission system in Germany (based on SciGRID) and Europe (based on GridKit). Funding statement: This research was conducted as part of the CoNDyNet project, which is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research under grant no. 03SF0472C.

  • Quandle and Biquandle Homology Calculation in R

    • Abstract: In knot theory several knot invariants have been found over the last decades. This paper concerns itself with invariants of several of those invariants, namely the Homology of racks, quandles, biracks and biquandles. The software described in this paper calculates the rack, quandle and degenerate homology groups of racks and biracks. It works for any rack/quandle with finite elements where there are homology coefficients in Zk. The up and down actions can be given either as a function of the elements of Zk or provided as a matrix. When calculating a rack, the down action should coincide with the identity map. We have provided actions for both the general dihedral quandle and the group quandle over S3. We also provide a second function to test if a set with a given action (or with both actions) gives rise to a quandle or biquandle. The program is provided as an R package and can be found at AMS subject classification: 57M27; 57M25 Published on 2018-01-16 15:56:05
  • An Octave/MATLAB® Interface for Rapid Processing of SMOS L1C Full
           Polarization Brightness Temperature

    • Abstract: A tool to process the SMOS microwave radiometer level 1C polarized brightness temperatures data product has been developed. The SMOS L1C science product contains the dual and full (Stokes vector) polarization brightness temperatures at L-band for multiple incidence angles. In order to use the L1C product, the measurements are processed by a number of procedures including radio frequency interference (RFI) filters, conversion of the polarization plane from the antenna (X- & Y-pol) to the Earth’s surface frame (H- & V-pol), and averaging to fixed classes of incidence angles. The software allows for the processing of data for the entire daily half-orbit product, or for specific regions of interest, and can be adapted as a bash-job to process a large number of data files e.g. for time series analysis. This paper describes the tool which was developed in GNU C++ with the capability to be compiled as MEX function to work with Octave or MATLAB® without any source code adjustment. Funding statement: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG under grant number SI 606/24-1.
