Tools

This page contains a collection of smaller scripts and tools developed to automate certain CSD Facility workflows. They are free and open source.

Geotek Image Converter

Geotek Converter is a software utility developed to prepare core imagery generated by digital linescan imagers (Geotek MSCL-CIS and DMT CoreScan) for viewing and use in applications like the visualization tool Corelyzer, and the Initial Core Description (ICD) tool PSICAT.

The Converter was developed to replace a collection of Photoshop scripts. It is free, available for Windows and macOS/OSX, written in Python, and leans heavily on the OpenCV imaging library.

Grain Size Aggregator

Grain Size Aggregator is a simple Python script and graphical user interface to parse and concatenate standard grain size data files generated by Horiba laser diffraction particle size analyzers. Grain Size Aggregator allows file batches of any size to be automatically reformatted and combined into a single file that can be directly imported to databases or used with any other core data.

Itrax XRF Image Converter

Itrax XRF Converter is a software utility developed to prepare core imagery generated by XRF and X-radiographic core scanners for viewing and use in applications like the visualization tool Corelyzer.

The Converter was developed to replace a collection of Photoshop scripts. It is free, available for Windows and macOS/OSX, written in Python, and leans heavily on the OpenCV imaging library.

RGB Aggregator

RGB Aggregator is a simple Python script and graphical user interface to concatenate and parse standard RGB color data files generated by Geotek linescan camera systems for every scan. RGB Aggregator allows file batches of any size to be automatically combined into a single file that can be directly imported to databases or used with any other core data.

Data Aggregator and Renamer

Data Aggregator and Renamer is a software utility developed to aggregate data from machine outputs of different scientific machines used by the CSD Facility and apply CoreIDs to the aggregated data. The tool was developed to replace manual workflows and can cut workflow times down from an hour to seconds.

Supported machine outputs:

  • Geotek MSCL-S Whole-Core Logger
  • Geotek MSCL-XYZ Split-Core Logger
  • Itrax XRF Scanner
