XVD Image Display Program

The XVD [X-Windows VICAR (video image communication and retrieval) Display] computer program offers an interactive display of VICAR and PDS (planetary data systems) images. It is designed to efficiently display multiple-GB images and runs on Solaris, Linux, or Mac OS X systems using X-Windows. XVD is the de facto standard image display program used within the Multimission Image Pro - cessing Lab (MIPL) to process images from missions such as Voyager, Galileo, Cassini, MER, and Phoenix, among others.

XVD includes color, grayscale, or pseudocolor display; arbitrary zoom; the ability to display non-byte images; metadata (image label) display; full-screen displays; dither modes for 8-bit screens; 17 different stretch types; magnifying glass; and capabilities to rotate images and display latitude and longitude for certain types of images.

This work was done by Robert G. Deen, Paul M. Andres, Helen B. Mortensen, Vadim Parizher, Myche McAuley, Paul Bartholomew, and Gloria Connor of Caltech for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
