MINX (MISR INteractive eXplorer)


MINX is an interactive visualization and analysis program written in IDL and designed to make MISR data more accessible to science users. Its principal use is to retrieve heights and motion for aerosol plumes and clouds using stereoscopic methods.

MINX is platform independent and has been tested on Mac OS X, MS Windows, and Linux.

Binaries for Mac OS X, MS Windows, and Linux can be found under MINX Releases

Full Documentation can be found under the webdoc directory

Use MAKE_RT at the IDL Console to Create a MINX Stand-alone IDL Runtime Distribution

For Mac OS X

  • MAKE_RT, 'MINX4', '/Users/<username>/<MINX_package_destination>', SAVEFILE='/<MINX Source Path>/MINX/minx.sav', /VM, /MACINT64, /HIRES_MAPS

For Windows

  • MAKE_RT, 'MINX4', 'C:\Users\<username>\<MINX_package_destination>', SAVEFILE='C:\<MINX Source Path>\MINX\minx.sav', /VM, /WIN32, /HIRES_MAPS

For Linux

  • MAKE_RT, 'MINX4', '/home/<username>/<MINX_package_destination>', SAVEFILE='/<MINX Source Path>/MINX/minx.sav', /VM, /LIN32, /HIRES_MAPS

Note: Depending on your version of IDL and the current OS, you may also be able to specify the /WIN64 (for Windows 64-bit), /MACINT32 (for OS X 32-bit), or /LIN64 (for Linux 64-bit) keywords to build MINX packages
