The University of Wisconsin's Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) has been at the forefront in developing data analysis and visualization tools for environmental satellite data, and other geophysical data. The fifth generation of the Man-computer Interactive Data Access System (McIDAS-V) is a java-based, open-source, freely available software system to support researchers and algorithm developers who work with these data. This demo will provide a general background on the capabilities of the McIDAS-V system, then show the powerful data manipulation and visualization tools available in McIDAS-V, applied specifically to NPP/JPSS data.
