5th GOES Users' Conference

The freely available Hyper-spectral Data Research Application (HYDRA) program has been used world-wide during the past few years for training users of hyperspectral data for the past few years. It combines easy data access with a graphical user interface that allows the user to extensively probe, compare, and combine data from spectral channels and satellites.

HYDRA is now being re-cast to work within the McIDAS-V environment (the next generation of the McIDAS software) to provide even more flexibility to work with a variety of data sources, including models and in situ data, and to enable new types of displays and analysis. This presentation will provide details of the integration process and discuss the new capabilities in depth.
