The Common Pipeline Library (CPL) comprises a set of ISO-C libraries that provide a comprehensive, efficient and robust software toolkit. It forms the basis for the creation of automated astronomical data reduction tasks (pipelines)
CPL 5.0.1. installation on serv2.foa.univie.ac.at:
- CPLDIR /usr/local/cpl
- CPL 5.0.1. based instrument pipelines: /usr/local/pipeline
ESO/MVM (or "alambic") is an end-to-end, high-throughput image reduction system based upon the multi-resolution Vision Model (MVM).
The following tools are meant to be run in batch mode on large quantities of data with minimum human intervention
- SExtractor: source extraction
- SCAMP: astrometric calibration & photometric homogenisation
- SWarp: image regridding and coaddition
The data reduction pipelines have to provide the necessary data for:
- Data quality control;
- Calibration data base;
- Science data products.
