A software tool for visualization of MISR and AirMISR data files, hdfscan, is now being distributed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. hdfscan, which includes a User's Guide, is available for download free of charge from JPL, upon completion of a license agreement.

hdfscan software consists of two components - a core hdf file reading engine and a graphical user interface (GUI) built as a wrapper around the core engine. The core engine can be executed as a standalone command-line application. The core engine is written in Fortran90. The GUI is written in a combination of Tcl/tk, C, and C++. These have been designed and tested to run on Sun Solaris 7 and higher and SGI IRIX 6.5 environments.

hdfscan was developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

To obtain the license agreement, go to the MISR Science Software web page, read the introductory information, and select item 8 in the table of software packages.
