SIFT Developer Documentation

SIFT, Satellite Information Familiarization Tool, is a GUI application for viewing and analyzing earth-observing satellite data. This documentation is meant for developers of SIFT or those interested in the low-level details (programming interfaces, public APIs, overall designs, etc). For general information on the use of SIFT, official releases, and installation instructions of those releases see the SIFT home page. Note that the library and python package for the SIFT project are named uwsift.

For source code and other information now provided by the home page see the GitHub repository. Some of the original design documentation of SIFT can be found on the repository’s wiki. This site’s documentation will slowly replace the low-level documents on the wiki.
