IDL Users Group Meeting - Fast Visualization & Application Development
David M. Uhlir, Ph.D., IDL Product Manager, Research Systems, Inc.
IDL users and anyone interested in tapping into a powerful, 4th generation
programming language will meet to discuss IDL and the latest Version 5.0
innovations. IDL is advanced software for data analysis, visualization and
application development. Development time is significantly reduced with IDL's
high-level, array-oriented programming language and library of 2D and 3D
graphics, mathematics, statistics and cross-platform GUI tools. If you analyze
data from tests, experiments or images, or write applications for others to use,
IDL will give you clear results faster.
