Abstract
The Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) spectro-polarimetric goniometer is an instrument conceived for the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) measurement. For a BRDF measurement, spectra are acquired for various sensor and light positions and for several polarization angles; producing a large number of spectral files. The program gview is tool used to navigate into this large volume of data. It gathers all these files, produces a single multidimensional data matrix, extracts wavelength dependent BRDF profiles and offer several other possibilities to extract information from this batch of spectral files. This document is divided into two parts. The first part is a user’s guide that describes the gview GUI and shows the user how to use it. The second part is a programmer’s guise, describing the program core, allowing, eventually, the next programmer to do the software maintenance and upgrades.
