NASAView was written to allow the user to display and examine Planetary Data System archive products. PDS archive products are typically data files containing an image or a table. Each archive file must have an attached or a detached label containing PDS metadata. For descriptions of labels refer to the PDS standards documents. The program is not intended to display GIF, JPEG, or PNG files. It is also not intended to be used for intensive scientific analysis of data included in the PDS archive. There are other software packages available from the data producers to analyze the contents of these files.
