Naticus Maximus Cartographica, comes from the practice of scientists of the day creating a latinized version of their name that contains their first name and a last name referring to their trade. For example, Gerhard Mercator, the father of modern map making (ca 1500), takes a last name that refers to his trade as a "seller of crafts." He is known for the Mercator Projection, which is a common projection for many maps (terrestrial/stellar). Mine comes from the love of maps and geography.

I received a post regarding some RADAR processing software. This is open source. I have not yet checked it out, but it may be useful for those interested in processing RADAR data.
