  Description     : Visualization software for solar image

 JHelioviewer is visualization software for solar image data based on the JPEG
 2000 compression standard. JPEG 2000 offers many useful new features and has
 the potential to revolutionize the way high-resolution image data are
 disseminated and analyzed. The JPEG 2000 Interactive Protocol (JPIP) enables
 serving data in a highly compressed, quality-progressive,
 region-of-interest-based stream. These features minimize the data volume
 transmitted while maximizing its usability. This is especially relevant for
 solar physics since NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has started providing
 more than a terabyte of image data per day.
