The Independent Research Centre for Unexplained Phenomena, in conjunction with Digital Phenomena, are currently developing a major computer software application in order to carry out accurate geometric analysis of photographs, maps and diagrams. Thoth can carry out independent X/Y scaling of images to compensate for the angle of the plane when analysing aerial photographs. In addition it can also give the ability to superimpose mathematical overlays onto images in order to test mathematical ratios and dimensions.

A large number of overlays are already provided, with more being added all the time. For example, you can choose from regular, shape, curved, flower of life or spiral overlays.

Thoth also incorporates a fully featured computer database so that individual points can be stored, retrieved and plotted on images. By scanning maps or diagrams, Thoth can plot ancient sites, UFO sitings, crop circle locations or any other interesting items and allow you to store associated data and correlate values between data points.

By using this feature you can analyse geographic positions and bearings in order to help with crop circle, ley line or ancient site correlations.

A further, powerful feature of Thoth is it's ability to generate musical tones from any image loaded. A multitude of musical parameters can be edited in real-time as the tones are playing. Using this feature you can even drive external MIDI instruments in order to obtain enchanting, harmonic tones from your loaded image.
Thoth will either 'play' an entire image as music, or play selected dimensions and ratios within the image as a sequence of invididual notes (similar to those used in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but this is now for real!)

It is hoped that Thoth will prove invaluable in helping researchers to obtain highly accurate surveys and correlations from any selected image. We will be able to correlate not only crop circles, but ancient sites, archeological surveys, sacred geometry and even maps.

Below are a number of screenshots showing Thoth in action.
N.B. As these are JPEG images, the quality is thus reduced from that of the original.

Hardware and Software requirements to run Thoth:

Thoth is written for any RISC OS compatible personal home computer or workstation.
It runs under RISC OS, versions 3.1 and higher.
Thoth requires 500k of hard disc space and 476k of memory in order to run.
Thoth is fully StrongArm compatible and works via the standard Risc OS printer driver.

An Apple Mac version may be developed, but I don't currently have the time to devote to development.

No Windows version is planned because Microsoft is evil.
