JWST Community Lecture Series - JWST Data Analysis Tools (S. Kassin)

Community Lecture

Abstract:

The JWST Data Analysis tools development effort centers on making it convenient for JWST users to inspect, manipulate, and model their data. Basic capabilities familiar to users of IRAF, STSDAS and IDL will be available (many already are) in the python/astropy software ecosystem. The tools are being built to understand JWST data structures, including uncertainties, detector geometries, data associations, and data quality flags. Basic tools will have a consistent python API and command-line interface. Extensible visualization tools are being developed for certain interactive workflows such as inspection of 1d spectra, multi-object spectroscopy (MOS), and integral field unit (IFU) data and are highlighted here.
