A Landsat 8 scene viewer
Viewpix allows the user to load all eleven bands of a Landsat 8 Level 1 data set into memory concurrently. You can scroll and view each band at full resolution. Change bands instantly with a single key press. Band 8 is 15 meters resolution, all other bands are 30m resolution. A 30m resolution gray scale scene is generated by Viewpix and is presented as band 12. Each Landsat 8 scene is roughly 190 X 180 kilometers. Viewpix was originally written as a simple platform to test GPU software on low end computer systems. This is the "lite" version of Viewpix as it has no cuda filters installed. Viewpix is written in C. It is tested on Ubuntu and Centos. It should work with most current Linux distributions. Viewpix runs efficiently on computers with modest CPU's such as low power mini-ITX boards. It is known to work nicely on Intel NUC, AMD A6 SOC , and NVIDIA TX2. A multiple core cpu, 8 GB ram, and a large capacity hard drive are suggested.
