ITT Visual Information Solutions (ITT VIS), has released IDL 8.0, its scientific programming language used to create visualizations out of complex numerical data. IDL is used by scientists, researchers, engineers, and professionals to create a range of data analysis and visualization solutions from small analysis programs to widely deployed software applications.
“The goal behind IDL development has always been to provide a powerful, yet easy to use, programming environment that allows users to focus on the work at hand, and not on a complex, time-consuming programming tool to analyze data,” says Beau Legeer, director of product marketing for ITT Visual Information Solutions. “IDL 8.0 is focused on this goal more than ever, and makes it easier and faster for users of any experience level to interpret data, but now in a modern, streamlined environment that delivers powerful new programming and graphics functionality.”
The most notable enhancement in IDL 8.0 is a new graphics system that allows users to more easily produce presentation-quality graphics, such as 2D and 3D plots, graphs and maps, from numerical data. The system provides the capability to quickly make on-the-fly adjustments to individual graphic elements, which saves significant time and effort.
