Data Explorer is a system of tools and user interfaces for visualizing data.
In general terms the visualization of data can be considered a 3-stage
1. Describing and importing data
2. Processing the data through a visualization program
3. Presenting the resulting image.
This is the package containing the shared libraries. Programs that use
routines from the OpenDX classes usually depend on it.
