Converting your FITS and other image data to JPEG2000 for use with the Helioviewer Project

Many institutions host many different kinds of image data, either from observations or from simulations.  I have put instructions on how to convert image data to a format the Helioviewer Project uses on our wiki page. The wiki is where we keep our must up-to-date instructions on the installation and use of all the software we are developing.

Contact me if you encounter any problem with the JP2Gen instructions , or with implementing JP2Gen on your local system (or any other part of the wiki). I’d be very happy to get your feedback!

Server is back

Some people were aware that our server had a hardware issue shortly before the Fifth Solar Image Processing Workshop (http://sipworkv.sipwork.org/).  Bad timing.  But now the good news – we have it back, and we are filling it with JP2 images.  We should be heading back to full operations on our newly repaired server very soon.

New JP2Gen

Ok, I’ve just updated the main trunk of JP2Gen (launchpad.net/jp2gen).  Trying it on one of our local machines which we will run as a SOHO FITS to JP2 engine.

Welcome

Hello, world. That seems a like a simple enough start to the blog of the Helioviewer Project. We’ll post news about the Helioviewer Project; progress, outstanding issues, latest features, questions to you about features, and so on. We really want to hear your feedback on our project so the tools we develop are the ones you will use. So don’t hold back, and let us know what you think about the Helioviewer Project, and how we can improve it.
