Is there somewhere a database of incidence matrices of generalized quadrangles that one can download?

You can compute them with the FinInG package in the computer algebra system GAP. FinInG has available all the classical generalised quadrangles, elation generalised quadrangles (with a $q$-clan, flock, or Kantor family as input), and it shouldn't be difficult to compute the known Payne-derived quadrangles from the symplectic generalised quadrangles. Here is an example:

LoadPackage("fining");
gq := SymplecticSpace(3, 5);
matrix := IncidenceMatrixOfGeneralisedPolygon( gq );

Thanks, I'll try this! –  Felix Goldberg May 13 '13 at 19:33
