Data Reduction Pipeline (v4.0.0-beta - 05/30/2016)
Comprehensive pipeline designed to fully reduce all of the calibration data and to reduce scientific data to the level where an astronomer can begin custom analysis. The OSIRIS pipeline is designed to:
  • Fix artifacts on the raw 2D array
  • Wavelength calibrate
  • Assemble all the spectra into a 3D cube (λ wavelength, x and y spatially).
  • Allows for mosaicking of multiple 3D cubes
  • Downloaded and installed by install script
Astronomers are responsible for generating their own custom analysis tools. We encourage sharing of tools.
Data Reduction GUI (v2.3 - 03/01/2010)
  • Generates XML data reduction files (DRFs) required to run the pipeline
  • Select pipeline modules
  • Select data
  • Drop into the DRP Queue
  • Downloaded and installed by install script
  • Manual install: download and unpack the package and consult the README file
