Paper Abstract

We present an interactive software tool for manipulating image data, especially high resolution multi-spectral solar movies and images from several different instruments. This tool contains procedures for distortion removal for ground based solar movies, correlation tracking, image alignments, data compression, 3D FOurier filtering, interactive viewing of space/time slices in movies, and browsing through data cubes. This is a compete public domain package based on X windows and Unix which is currently running on Silicon Graphics and Digital Equipment workstations. These software tools are freely available to the international solar community. Many components are also applicable to image an movie analysis in astrophysics, space physics, and earth sciences. They are available with documentation via our web pages under
