This is a tool for visualizing image footprints for a mosaic.
qmos is designed specifically for visualizing large amounts of images,
how images overlap, where control points lie on the images, and how
jigsaw has moved control points.
qmos only supports files which have latitude and longitude information
associated with them. Global projections are also not supported. If your
files meet these requirements, it is beneficial to run a couple of Isis
programs on your files before loading them into qmos. The programs you
should run are:
camstats from=future_input_to_qmos.cub attach=true
This enables qmos to give you the emission angle, incidence angle, and
resolution in the File List
footprintinit from=future_input_to_qmos.cub sinc=... linc=...
This enables qmos to use the given footprints instead of trying to
calculate its own. The 'linc' and 'sinc' parameters can have a significant
effect on your image's footprint. Also, images without footprints cannot
be opened more than one at a time. Running footprintinit will
significantly speed up loading images into qmos.

Discontinued forcing of gui style to windows
Rewrote the underlying functionality and re-factored the majority of the
code base to make a quicker, more-intuitive and more maintainable
program. Updated user documentation to be much more complete.
Improved documentation in preparation for the October release. Working
with me to help figure out the best ways to document qmos were Orrin
Thomas and Trent Hare. Fixes #427

Added the 'Auto Grid' functionality, an options dialog, the option to select
the source of the latitude and longitude extents, and an 'Auto Apply' option to
update the grid as parameters are changed to the grid tool. Also changed the
draw and clear grid buttons to a single 'Show Grid' check button. Updated the
documentation to include these changes. Fixes #604.
Added a 'Phase Angle' column to the list of opened files. This column behaves exactly
like the other camera angle columns with respect to visibility and sorting. Fixes #1093.
Added some color coding options for the jigsaw movement arrows in the control network
tool. You can now color code this arrows on the number of measures in a point or on the
maximum residual magnitude of the measures in the point. Fixes #479.
Fixed a bug that caused qmos to sometimes freeze, in the grid tool, when the maximum longitude
was set to a negative value. Fixes #1060.
Improved map file capabilities. Please see the help pages inside of qmos (Help -> qmos Help)
for descriptions and explanations of the new functionality. Fixes #1034.
The grid tool should no longer crash when it cannot compute image extents automatically.
The grid tool's "Auto Grid" option will now remember it's state between qmos runs. There is
now an option to set the current file list columns as the default. These changes will not
impact what is stored/loaded from projects. If you try to open a project and cancel the
original state of qmos is now properly preserved, instead of closing all open files/settings.
The grid tool's handling of the 180 longitude domain has been improved: the longitude extents
sometimes failed to cross the 0 boundary and the longitude extent sliders were in 0-360 still,
instead of -180 to 180.
Updated icons. Fixes #1041.
