New, free software for quantifying patterns of brittle fractures

We have released FracPaQ, an open source (-ish) toolbox of MATLAB scripts for the quantification of fracture patterns. You get the source code, with a GUI and a User Guide.

You can get the software here:
[ Mathworks.com Link ]

and here:
[ Github.com Link ]

It runs on any machine with a MATLAB license, so Windows,...

Dear all,

Let me advertise the freeware, GArcmB, for the fuzzy clustering of
fracture orientations and for the paleostress analysis of dilational
fractures,e.g.,dikes and mineral veins. GArcmB searches for the mixed Bingham distribution that best fits the poles to those planar structures using the genetic algorithm.

The software runs on 64-bit Windows,Mac and Linux; and is available at our...
