Dataset Viewer is a graphical tool for exploring Scientific DataSets.

The executable file is DataSetViewer.exe. It is installed in %PROGRAM FILES%/Microsoft Research/Scientific DataSet 1.2. This folder is added to the PATH environment variable so you can type "DataSetViewer <file-to-view>" from any folder. The installer associates DataSetViewer.exe with .nc files.

Is it possible to get the source code for this application, as this would give a good insight into how to use both the SDS and DDD libraries.
