  1. Geomancera geospatial feature engineering library. It leverages geospatial data such as OpenStreetMap (OSM) alongside a data warehouse like BigQuery. You can use this to create, share, and iterate geospatial features for your downstream tasks (analysis, modeling, visualization, etc.).
  2. Meshrooma free, open source 3D Reconstruction Software based on the AliceVision framework.
  3. Learn faster. Dig deeper. See farther.

  4. BlingFireA lightning fast finite state machine and regular expression manipulation library. […] We use Fire for many linguistic operations inside Bing such as tokenization, multi-word expression matching, unknown word-guessing, stemming / lemmatization, just to mention a few. cf NLTK.
  5. Learning ZIL — what the Infocom games were written in, decades before Inform. Andrew Plotkin wrote an intro that explains how it sits in the universe. (Note: this is useless but historically interesting.)
