Converting mb-system Files in Windows and Apple


This poser presented the results of the Summer 2014 FUNding Friday proposal to create a GUI for MB-system. Mb-system is a unix based program for multibeam sonar (Bathymetry) data. Mb-system was supported by NOAA from 2002 to 2004.  It does not work in windows and is complicated to install and use. The goal was to create a one click installer that will install Cygwin, mb-system, and supporting files on a windows system.  And pull out a python wrapper for Apple and non-cygwin installation.  This will provide a GUI to export the data in xyz and asii.
