Installation note

The preferred way to install, uninstall and update plug-ins is to use the VISAT module manager (Main menu -> Help -> Module Manager)

Alternatively, to install a plug-in, download its .jar file and copy it into the modules directory of your BEAM installation directory. The plug-in will be installed once you start VISAT. You can uninstall the plug-in simply by removing its .jar file from the directory again.
