Extract4DUcfAttributes

The Extract4DUcfAttributes application extracts data attributes associated with each vertex of a Ucf file.

Features

  • Extract4DUCFAttributes reads the LONI UCF and extended (4D) UCF files.
  • The UCF data attribute extension format permits more than one data attribute per vertex. Most applications read only the first data attribute but with Extract4DUCFAttributes all data attributes are recognized and extracted.
  • Because ShapeTools is written in Java, real world portability to many computer architectures is assured.

Description

Ucf surfaces frequently contain data attributes associated with each vertex of the Ucf shape. the format of the Ucf data file makes it difficult to separate these per-vertex data attributes from the coordinates of the vertices.

The Extract4DUcfAttributes application extracts these data from a Ucf file.

Usage

System Requirements

  • OS: any
  • Processor: any
  • Memory: 100 Mb
  • Other: Java 1.4.1 (or higher) interpreter

Installation

Compilation
Portable Java library jar makes library compilation unnecessary.

Installation
Copy the java application 'jar' file to your local disk.

Purpose

Ucf files contain useful information, encoded as a data attribute, stored in the fiel in association with a surface or contour vertex. The Extract4DUcfAttributes application reads the Ucf file and writes any data attributes it finds to the console output. This output may be saved as a separate and used in subsequent analyses.
