Citation File Format

The Citation File Format (CFF) project provides a format and schema for plain text CITATION.cff files with human- and machine-readable citation information for software (and datasets). Developers/RSEs can include them in their repositories to let others know how to correctly cite their software. The project also provides tooling for working with CFF files.

EnPT

The Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program (EnMAP) is a German hyperspectral satellite mission that aims at monitoring and characterising Earth’s environment on a global scale. EnMAP measures and models key dynamic processes of Earth’s ecosystems by extracting geochemical, biochemical and biophysical parameters that provide information on the status and evolution of various terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

FormatFuzzer

FormatFuzzer is a framework for high-efficiency, high-quality generation and parsing of binary inputs. It takes a binary template that describes the format of a binary input and generates an executable that produces and parses the given binary format. From a binary template for GIF, for instance, FormatFuzzer produces a GIF generator - also known as GIF fuzzer.
