Viewing the universe (and more!) with ImageX

The Scalable Compute Archive group in Research Technologies – Pervasive Technology Institute at Indiana University, has expanded the Image Explorer (ImageX) for more general-purpose scientific use.

Increasingly, web-based tools and portals are being utilized by scientists and researchers to make new discoveries. The Scalable Compute Archive group in Research Technologies – Pervasive Technology Institute at Indiana University, has been creating such portals for some time. In particular, they developed Image Explorer (ImageX) for astronomical image analysis.
