Welcome to the Isis Workshop

The Isis Workshop is a collection of tutorials designed to lead students from learning the basics to developing advanced skills in image processing with Isis. Many of the tutorials have interactive exercises where you can visualize what is being described, and some have links to data you can download and practice using in Isis 3. Select a lesson below to start learning Isis.

NOTE: ISIS has just recently been through a major 'upgrade', please be aware that some of the contents of this workshop might not be consistent with the most recent public release version of ISIS3 (ISIS3.3.0 Oct, 2011). The most obvious inconsistencies would be parameter names and parameter defaults, we will be submitting updates to this workshop so keep us bookmarked!
