Open .fit image file

Recommended Posts



I am trying to open an image file with the extension ".fit". Does anybody know which software to use ?


I obtained this image using the WASI software (Water Color Simulator) available on the IOCCG website (http://ioccg.org/resources/software/).

The contents of the image file are described by a additional ".hdr" file. The image file contains several bands, corresponding to the different parameters of the water (constituant concentration, bottom depth, etc) computed by the software.

It would be great if I could open this image with QGIS.


So far I have found this list of image viewers (https://fits.gsfc.nasa.gov/fits_viewer.html), but none of those that I tried have worked yet.


Thank you in advance for your help.
