Abstract: The Gemini Data Handling System (DHS) developed by the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC) is required to provide a ``Quick Look'' display system that allows near real-time display of image data collected by the instruments of the Gemini Telescopes. The Gemini Quick Look System allows data to be displayed on multiple display tools, possibly on different systems, allows the display of data from multiple data streams, and allows images to be sent incrementally (in chunks). The Quick Look Tool is based on the European Southern Observatory (ESO) Skycat display tool, and expands on the functionality provided by Skycat. This paper describes the design and function of the Gemini Quick Look System.
