ISPRS 2003 Mars for Plan 9
After GUI was spread, we have to deal with huge sized programs written for investigation of planetary data. There are many commercial based utilities to make those smaller such that GUI libraries or more abstracted forms as language based IDL etc... Those utilities are, unfortunately, suffered from very often updates, which makes us annoying sometime. We searched many operating systems and found Plan 9 from Bell Labs, which was newly designed from scratch with the aim of replacing Unix in a future, and has a very compact graphics system. Plan 9 is now open to researchers without fee. Based on this Plan 9 OS, we expected to make a smaller sized and well featured GUI program for our investigation of Mars MOLA and image data, and got such with total C source codes of about 10,300 lines. We call this program as marsv.
