I'm looking at a seismic velocity application based on the Seismic Unix data format (the SEGY format), with Glenn Reynolds, who created it:
The above is created on the Swing Application Framework. The basic functionality can be ported to a new application on the NetBeans Platform in an hour or two:
Many advantages to doing this porting procedure, including the possibility of opening (and comparing!) multiple files and the pluggability/modularity of the above application. Below two files are open, but there could be dozens, which can now be compared with each other:
Planning to create a YouTube movie about how to do the above porting procedure soon!
