If you are looking for IDL, you have come to the right place. We explain what IDL is and point you to the official download.

What is IDL?

IDL is a programming language and program from Visual Information Solutions that is often used in scientific data representation and processing. Supporting several platforms, the solution owes its popularity to its interactivity and dynamism as a programming language as well as to the exceptionally strong analysis library it packs. Data analysis using IDL can be performed on multiple threads and users can very quickly add their own data processing routines to the ones already included: whether it is image processing, signal processing, or a math and statistics routine, IDL is capable of handling all of them. Importing files is also simple given that IDL supports most image, video and scientific data formats.

IDL also has a development environment that helps users make the most of its strengths through an easy-to-learn UI. This interface has an integrated help system that further assists users by providing examples for its explanations. IDL is macro-friendly too, and can be extended through already available add-ons that expand its featureset. IDL is also the language of choice for users of the ENVI product series when they need to extend their programs.
