This paper presents a graphical software infrastructure for stereo display. It enables the development of low-cost/short development cycle stereo applications that are portable - not only across platforms, but across display types as well. Moreover, it allows not just images but entire GUI's (Graphics User Interface) to be displayed in stereo consistently across many platforms. Java Advanced Display Infrastructure for Stereo (JADIS) provides a common interface for displaying GUI components in stereo using either specialized stereo display hardware (e.g. liquid crystal shutter or polarized glasses) or anaglyph display (red/blue glasses) on standard computer displays. An application using this toolkit will work without modification in either environment, allowing stereo software to reach a wider audience (anaglyphs) without sacrificing high-quality display on dedicated hardware. JADIS has been released as Open Source and is available via the Open Channel foundation website[1]. It has been integrated into several applications for stereo viewing and processing of data acquired by current and future NASA Mars surface missions (e.g. Mars Exploration Rover (MER), Phoenix Lander, Mars Science Laboratory (MSL)).
