Integrated data analysis for precision spectroscopy


Guido Cupani (Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF))


To achieve its purpose, the analysis of astronomical data must be (1) reproducible, (2) versatile in handling both multi-messenger observations and simulations, (3) easily automatized and scalable. In the field of optical spectroscopy, the demand for high-level procedures to process the data has been met by a growing number of dedicated software packages; what is still lacking is a shared environment to seamlessly combine this resource to fully exploit their potential. An effort in this direction is provided by Astrocook, a Python package developed at INAF-OATs to analyze quasar spectra and equipped with its own graphical user interface to launch procedures and create workflows. In this talk I will describe the current status of Astrocook and raise the issue of its possible connection to an archive 2.0 framework.
