4.3 Image Display Interface

Data in image(5NEMO) format can be transferred in fits(5NEMO) format and subsequently displayed and analyzed within any astronomical image processing system. They are generally much better equipped to display and manipulate data of this kind of format. A number of standalone display programs can also understand FITS format. An excellent example of this is ds9(1L), although it understands FITS files, can be used in a client-server setting and NEMO image files can be directly sent to the display server (a temporary fits file is created, which can have drawbacks):

    % ds9 &
    % nds9 map.ccd
