Satellite Observations in Science Education



This RCO is a multi-purpose workhorse. It can be used to define and work with multiple datasets (essentially, a group of similar image files). For each dataset, a distinct set of controls must be enabled.

Controls are defined in the XML file, but include typical VCR-like controls (stop, start, etc.), as well as a frame animation rate control, and the ability to define enhancements.

Controls defined in previous RCOs, such as feature tracing and feature tracking, are also available in this RCO.
