    7 AplGUI comes in three versions: windows installer, windows standalone and source code. The latest release of the software can be downloaded from here(link). Windows installer requires administrator privileges on your machine and will automatically install the program in specified location and create a shortcut on the Desktop. The standalone version doesn't require installation and will work straight away after extracting from the archive. The source distribution is intended mainly for Linux users and requires Python (http://python.org/getit/) and wxPython (http://www.wxpython.org/download.php) to be installed on the system.

    21 Once you are happy with your selections you can save the configuration to a file to avoid setting it again every time you start the program. Simply go to File menu > Save Settings and chose a file to store the configuration. You can also store settings for different projects in separate files. To load previously saved settings go to File > Load Settings.

    2534== Creating an IGM file ==
    2635
    27 The first of three panels of AplGUI is used for creating level-3 IGM files from level-1 BIL files using aplcorr package. Simply click the Browse button next to Level-1 BIL file and select the file you wish to process from the list. Once this file has been selected you can press Auto button to automatically populate other fields on the panel with relevant entries.

    29 Next click on Save As button next to Output IGM File and specify the name of the file that is about to be produced. Finally click the Run button at the bottom to start the processing. A dialog with progress bar will now pop up and the information about the processing will be displayed in the text box on the panel.

    3751The IGM file produced in the previous step will be in geographic latitude/longitude. If you wish to transform this projection to something else you will need to use Transform IGM panel.

    4362== Gridding and Mapping the Data ==
     
    4564Now that you have an IGM file in the required projection it is time to map the level-1 data to a regular grid. You can use the third panel of AplGUI to create a map of level-1 data using projection of the IGM file.

    4973First select an IGM file produced with either first or the second panel of AplGUI, depending on the projection. Then select the corresponding level-1 file. Finally specify the name for the mapped output file. You will also have to select the bands to be mapped and the pixel size in relevant units, again based on the projection used. Optionally you can adjust some of the advanced settings, like output data type interpolation method or specify a particular are to be mapped.
