Workshop: Science and data challenges for Radio Astronomy Research
August 2010
P.D. Bourke

Presenting a recently installed high resolution display, the design goals and final hardware solution. A key goal was to have a display that could run any software and maximised the number of pixels available. Examples from a few application fields will be demonstrated, including GoogleEarth and pyramidal tiff images.
