Astronomical image viewer
DescriptionGinga is a toolkit designed for building viewers for scientific image data in Python, visualizing 2D pixel data in numpy arrays. It can view astronomical data such as contained in files based on the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) file format. It is written and is maintained by software engineers at the Subaru Telescope, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. The Ginga toolkit centers around an image display object which supports zooming and panning, color and intensity mapping, a choice of several automatic cut levels algorithms and canvases for plotting scalable geometric forms. In addition to this widget, a general purpose "reference" FITS viewer is provided, based on a plugin framework. A fairly complete set of standard plugins are provided for features that is expected from a modern FITS viewer: panning and zooming windows, star catalog access, cuts, star pick/fwhm, thumbnails, etc. This package contains the image viewer based on Python 3.

Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.

- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
