Hi Folks,

The HiRISE team has been working on an improved image viewer/data explorer for our JPEG2000 imagery. We'd like to offer you all the chance to try out the release candidate before our public release next week, if you'd like to give it try. The new software is called HiView and can be downloaded from the HiRISE website.

For those of you that are interested: HiView is a platform native application (not java like the IAS Viewer), and as such it is a bit faster and more responsive. The performance using the jpip protocol is somewhat better than the IAS Viewer, and we are continuing to work on improving that. We are also continuing to develop the software. At this time, the software more or less matches the feature set of the IAS Viewer (panning/zooming and color/contrast stretching), but future versions will also include measurement tools and the like as well.

It should be noted that we will not be continuing to distribute the IAS viewer software after the end of this month, but we think HiView is a big enough improvement over the IAS Viewer that we hope nobody will be disappointed by that.

We'll be happy to hear any feedback that you can give us on this. The software is available for OSX, Linux, and Windows.
