Abstract: ALMA is the largest radio telescope operating in Chile, and it is expected to produce 200 TB of data every year. Even a data cube obtained for a single source can exceed 1 TB. It is, therefore, crucial to reduce the size of data transmitted through the Internet by doing a cutout of a part of a data cube and/or reducing the spatial/frequency resolution before transferring the data. To specify the cutout region or required resolution, one needs to overview the whole of the data without transferring the large data cube. For this purpose, we developed two applications for quick-looking ALMA data cube, ALMA Web QL and Desktop Viewer (Vissage).
