The wiki replaces my blog and whilst it contains some material from that blog it also includes details of various projects that were previously either in my head or in notebooks lying around my office. The aim is two-fold, firstly I hope that by making my notes public, someone can benefit from them, and secondly, to remind me how I did things. A wiki seemed a more appropriate tool than a blog to share this stuff.

Please Note that the documentation and example code for the The Genetic Algorithm Framework for .Net (GAF) has been moved to a dedicated wiki at http://gaframework.org.

The sections below detail some of the topics that are included, however, a search may be more lucrative.

Enjoy!

Open Source Projects

Introduction to the TELSTAR Viewdata system

The TELSTAR Viewdata System is a modern application that provides a simple Viewdata platform in the style of Prestel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prestel).

The aim of the software is to provide a Viewdata experience for anyone who is interested in how thinng 'used to be'. The modern service uses an internet connection rather than over the public switched telephone network (PSTN).

Genetic Algorithm Framework for .Net

Please Note that the documentation and example code for the The Genetic Algorithm Framework for .Net (GAF) has been moved to a dedicated wiki at http://gaframework.org. For an introduction to the topic using the GAF see the associated https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/873559/Implementing-Genetic-Algorithms-in-Csharp article for details.

GeoUK and GeoUK.OSTN

This is a simple to use Geodetic Library for .Net that will allow simple transformation to and from British National Grid. GeoUK.OSTN http://www.nuget.org/packages/GeoUK.OSTN/ is an extension to GeoUK that provides OSTN02 transfiormations, see the NuGet project page (http://www.nuget.org/packages/GeoUK/) and the associated CodeProject article (https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1007147/Converting-Latitude-and-Longitude-to-British-Natio) for details on how to use these packages.

GPS Library for .Net

The GPS Library is a single .Net 4.0 Assembly designed to provide a simple object based interface to both the Garmin and Magellan range of GPS devices. In addition the GPS Library will support NMEA devices.

The GPS Library was originally sold as the Waymex GPS Library for .Net. Waymex IT Ltd no longer exists and the rights to this software now lie with me, the original author.

Whilst the original code is available at (https://gpslibrary.codeplex.com/), please note that the code has been forked by Nerzhul and is available as a NuGet package at https://www.nuget.org/packages/GPS.Net/.
