    Spectral image sensors provide images with a large number of contiguous spectral channels per pixel. Visualization of these huge data sets is not a straightforward issue. There are three principal ways in which spectral data can be presented; as spectra, as image and in feature space. This paper describes several visualization methods and their suitability in the different steps in the research cycle. Combinations of the three presentation methods and dynamic interaction between them, adds significant to the usability. Examples of some software implementations are given. Also the application of volume visualization methods to display spectral images is shown to be valuable
