SAL Home DATA Software Packages


The Horizon Image Data Browser is a Java Package currently under development at NCSA by Project Horizon that will provide a variety of tools for browsing and visualizing scientific data. The package is made up of Java classes and interfaces, as well as ready-to-use applets and applications. The design is meant to (in principle) support any image format originating either from the Web or local disk. Here are some of the features we are working on:

  • basic 2D visualization of multidimensional data
  • zooming, subsetting, animation
  • spreadsheet browsing
  • color fiddling
  • progressive image transmission
  • overlaying multiple images
  • support for collaborative sessions facilitate by the NCSA Habanero Collaborative Tool
  • Easy adaptability and extensibility
