CASSIS development notes

The scripts are located in /home/scripts/. Please don't edit any IDL procedure directly as they are under subversion control.


  • December: v4 testing
  • end of December: starting massive v4 extraction
  • mid-January: submit pipeline paper
  • February: release v4 and server access


  • Pipeline paper: extraction step by step, products, some first example, etc... submitting to PASP (?) (Vianney). Any idea for referees? F. Lahuis, J.D. Smith, who else?
  • Extragalactic paper: sources with redshifts, measurements of PAHs, continuum, fork diagram, Laurent's diagram (Henrik)
  • Dan Weedman's paper (submitted to ApJ?)

Hardware & Website

We now have a full backup.

The website needs some work:

  • more query fields
  • access to cluster mode sources
  • displaying diagnostic messages, etc...

Here is a first short at site layout. Even if it's not definitive it shows what we need to include there. CASSIS_website.png

Version 4


  • tested on Vian's machine
  • tested on
  • have to change the RSRF to HR6348 for everything except LL post-bias (HD173511+HR6348)
  • do we go with Greg's new templates? The problem is that there isn't the full coverage right now.
  • do we include full slit extractions right now or after?
  • prepare a vizier catalog to go with the pipeline paper?


  • test a list of AORs

Post-version 4

  • redshift determinations using photo-z's catalogs
  • VO format for all data
  • access to query on spectra themselves (on-the-fly measurements, building samples, etc...)
  • for sources with significant dispersion over DCEs, extract each DCE individually then combine
  • extract spectra of the other source in the slit/background
  • full serendipitous source catalog (including mapping observations)
  • allow users to upload their version of the spectra
  • partially-extended source flux calibration (Vianney, on its way)
  • PU photometry?
  • send data to NED
  • eventually transfer to IRSA?
