AstroVirgil  Popular
With AstroVirgil you can analyze data from the space-based Chandra X-ray telescope. You can study supernovas, black holes and the center of galaxies. Above is the main AstroVirgil window showing what is left of Cas A, a star that blew some time ago. What is left now is a supernova remnant (an expanding shell of very hot gas).

CIAO  Popular
The Chandra X-Ray Center released the Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) software package. The remarkable science capabilities of the Chandra X-ray Observatory demanded new, flexible, multi-dimensional software to analyze the data it returned. The result is CIAO, a system that has proven itself useful for the analysis of data from other, non-X-ray missions, because of the mission independence that is the basis of the CIAO design.

Cora line fitting tool  Popular
Cora is a Line fitting tool designed for emission line spectra with low count numbers. It implements a line fitting procedure based on the Maximum Likelihood technique and developed for emission line spectra, as introduced in Ness & Wichmann 2002.

Imfit 
Imfit is a program for fitting astronomical images - especially images of galaxies, though it can in principle be used for fitting other sources. The user can specify a set of one or more 2D functions which are added together to generate a model image.

miriad  Popular
Miriad is a radio interferometry data reduction package. It has particular emphasis on aspects of interest to users of the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA). Miriad can be used for the reduction of continuum and spectral line experiments from the original loading of the data (either FITS, the ATNF RPFITS or old BIMA formats) through to the image analysis and display stages (publication quality output). Miriad, in particular, supports a number of niche areas. These include calibration and analysis of polarimetric data from the ATCA, multi-frequency synthesis imaging, mosaicing, ATCA pulsar bin mode, and some spectral line observing applications (e.g. Zeeman experiments).

Montage  Popular
The Montage project will deploy a portable, compute-intensive service that will deliver science-grade custom mosaics on demand, with requests made through existing portals. Science-grade in this context requires that terrestrial and instrumental features are removed from images in a way that can be described quantitatively; custom refers to user-specified parameters of projection, coordinates, size, rotation and spatial sampling.

ORAC-DR  Popular
ORAC-DR is the online Data Reduction Pipeline delivered as part of the ORAC project. Its purpose was to provide a flexible and extensible system for the online data reduction of the current and future UKIRT instruments, but is now also in use at the JCMT for Scuba data reduction.

PyDrizzle  Popular
PyDrizzle provides an automated method for dither-combining and distortion-correcting images using tasks from IRAF STSDAS Dither package. The task was written using the Python scripting language and PyRAF. It can be used interactively using either an IRAF task interface or using the Python scripting language for interactive or automated data analysis.

QLWFPC2  Popular
QLWFPC2 is a new parallel-processing stellar photometry code which is designed to do quick-look analysis of two entire WFPC2 observations from the Hubble Space Telescope in under 5 seconds using a fast Beowulf cluster with a Gigabit-Ethernet local network.

Sherpa  Popular
herpa, CIAO's generalized modeling and fitting engine, allows users to construct complex models and to fit models to data in N dimensions. It has a library of optimization methods and fit statistics. Sherpa is "domain independent", i.e. it does not require particular axes to be fit. It is also mission independent, with no particular tie to Chandra data. For example, it has been used to analyze HST spectra. Sherpa supports S-Lang, an interpreted programming language that can be used for scripting and data manipulation
