Skyview is an image
display and analysis program for the interactive analysis of astronomical
using the X-Windows user interface. Skyview is primarily intended
for the analysis of flux/intensity and position calibrated scientific imagery.
Skyview can also overlay contour plots on images; slice out and analyze planes
from image cubes; graphically illustrate the output of database queries onto
corresponding images; and interact easily with other programs through the
use of server mode.

- Images as data
- Beyond simply rendering scientific images into pictures for display,
Skyview also treats the scientific information in images.
- Multiple images
- Skyview supports display of multiple images of any size. The ability
to handle images is limited only by the amount of memory and disk.
- Full-color display
- Skyview supports multiple color planes within one image frame.
- Server mode
- Skyview can also operate as a service to other programs
- as a display service (See IRSKY)
- as an image access server without an interactive display, e.g. for
rendering images on-the-fly for a WWW service
