Interactive Visualizer and Image Classifier for Satellites (IVICS)
Entry ID: IVICS
Abstract: The Interactive Visualizer and Image Classifier for Satellites (IVICS) is a
general purpose visualization system which supports several common satellite
and remote sensing data formats. The Generalized Satellite Format (GSF) was
developed to support IVICS.
Currently, the following data types are supported by IVICS and GSF:
-AVHRR LAC/GAC (up to NOAA-14)
-MODIS Airborne Sensor (MAS) - 50 channel variety
-MODIS 1KM (DAAC processed 39 channel, DAAC processed subsetted 19 channel,
-ASTER (at 15m 30m and 90m resolution)
-CloudVis (NASA Langley)
-GOES McIdas (experimental)
-LANDSAT TM NLAPS and GEOTIFF (requires NLAPS header)
Access Constraints Platforms Supported:
Currently, IVICS has been tested on the following platforms / operating
-SGI (IRIX 6.5)
-Linux (Redhat 6.2, 7.x, 8.x, 9.x)
-Cygwin under Windows (works well with KDE desktop)
-Sun (SunOS 5.6, 5.8) NOTE: The current version of Mesa3D won't install on
so the OpenGL implementation shipped from Sun must be installed. Update: The
developer doesn't currently have access to Suns, so versions later than 1.1.2
have not been tested.
IVICS should be portable to most any unix system with an ansi C/C++ compiler
and support for some version or port of Motif and OpenGL.
-24 bit graphics mode at 1024 x 768 (1280 x 1024 preferred) supports overlay if
-64 Mb memory (128 preferred, actual memory usage depends upon data type and
number of channels in data)
-3 button mouse (or 2 button with 3 button emulation mode)
-C compiler with Make capability if source code build is desired
In order to build IVICS from source code, the following software MUST BE
INSTALLED on the system:
-OpenGL (Mesa3D is free clone of OpenGL)
-Motif 2.1 or later (lessTif is a free clone, OpenMotif is another version
-available for Linux)
NOTE: As of RedHat 7.3, Mesa components are included in the XFree86-Devel rpm.
The following software is needed by IVICS, and is included with the IVICS
