Software suite for analysis of avalanche videos

Matlab and C software suite for analysing video images. The software has been successfully used on ping-pong ball avalanches, snow avalanches and laboratory experiments. It is designed for fixed cameras and assumes that the flow only arrives at each point once. It is based on a temporal change-point method that generated the first arrival times of the front so that the level sets are the flow contours. The package includes software for camera calibration and conversion to world coordinates on geometric surfaces and digital terrain models.
