The CoastWatch Software Library and Utilities is a package of software tools for working with earth data sets distributed by the NOAA/NESDIS CoastWatch program. The tools allow data users to easily manipulate and visualize data from the newer CoastWatch HDF4 files (local and network-accessible), the older CoastWatch IMGMAP files (.cwf extension), and NOAA 1b AVHRR. The package includes both a GUI visualization tool and a library of command-line utilities.

Cube Visualization (cv) tool

The Cube Visualization or "cv" program is part of the ISIS image processing system (Integrated Software for Imagers and Spectrometers), and includes many image processing functions. It runs on several versions of Unix. It is not supported on Windows because it uses CALL_EXTERNAL.
