RGPR: a free and open-source software package for ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data processing
RGPR is a free and open-source software package to read, export, analyse, process and visualise ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data.
RGPR is written in R, a high-level programming language for statistical computing and graphics that is freely available under the GNU General Public License and runs on Linux, Windows and MacOS. R is a highly versatile and extensible language to which C, C++ and Fortran code can be linked and run. Furthermore, the R developer community is very active and more than 10'000 packages are hosted on the official global package repository CRAN (Comprehensive R Archive Network, https://cran.r-project.org). In 2017, R was ranked as the sixth top programming language by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
SEG-Y file format developed by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) for storing geophysical data (*.sgy), also used by Easy Radar USA
SEG-2 Pullan, S.E., 1990, Recommended standard for seismic (/radar) files in the personal computer environment: Geophysics, 55, no. 9, 1260–1271(*.sg2). Also used by US Radar with extensions *.RA1, *.RA2, *. RAD.
GPRmax: hdf5 file format with extension *.out (not well tested)
3dradar: the manufacturer does not want to reveal the binary file format *.3dra. Workaround: export the GPR data in binary VOL format (*.vol) with the examiner software -> still experimental
