Download & Analyse example - implemented in IDL
Beside a direct download functionality this script demonstrates the possibility of combining the download with an immediate data extraction and analysis. It is intended to demonstrate the possibility that users may access the CryoLand GeoPortal and directly integrate the received data (or processed results) into their existing knowledge systems.
