Grid Parameter Definition (GPD) Viewer
Entry ID: NSIDC_gpdviewer
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Grid Parameter Definition (GPD) Viewer is an IDL Catalyst Library program that can be used to interactively visualize and create Grid Parameter Definition (GPD) files. The resulting GPD files can be used by other software at NSIDC to reproject different types of satellite data.

Purpose: The purpose of this program is to allow the user to view and construct gpd map files for NSIDC image manipulation.
