|Description||The NSIDC DataViewer is an interactive tool for viewing and displaying satellite images from select NSIDC passive microwave data sets. Images in PNG, JPEG, TIFF, and other commonly used image data formats can also be viewed and displayed in a user-defined grid.
Up to 64 images can be displayed simultaneously in the DataViewer resizeable graphics window, allowing data users to page through a series of images. Images can be scaled and manipulated either individually or as a group. By moving the cursor over an image, a data user can obtain the latitude and longitude coordinates as well as the image value at the cursor location. After an image or series of images is manipulated, the contents of the graphics window(s) can be saved in a variety of image formats, including PostScript, PNG, JPEG, and TIFF.
The DataViewer is a program written in Interactive Data Language (IDL). It can be run in IDL with an IDL license, via the freely distributed IDL Virtual Machine, or as a run-time application.
