XStarView provides a preview facility for public domain images and spectra.
These preview images are stored in our database and are available to immediate viewing through XStarView.
They are not intended for science, but are useful for determining whether you want to retrieve the corresponding data
from the archive.
The preview images and spectra are generated by the CADC.
are binned 4x4 and compressed by a factor of about 150, using a wavelet compression technique deveolped at STScI.
They are previewed using SAOimage.
Spectra are compressed using gzip and are previewed using ACE/gr.
(These samples do not include the SAOimage or ACE/gr window
surrounding the data display.)
