Iris How-to Guide

The Iris How-to Guide serves as a roadmap for navigating the Iris SED analysis tool. It provides instructions for downloading, installing, and running the Iris application; describes the individual features and capabilities of Iris; and ties it all together in an example SED analysis session.

*** NEW ***
The "How-to Guide" has been updated for Iris version 2.0. See the Iris v2.0 features tour for a look at the newest additions to Iris. Watch the Iris 2.0 video tutorial for an example on how to build and model SED data in Iris 2.0.
