pandora stands for programs for astronomical data organization reduction and analysis

We develop and distribute various software packages since 2004. Nowadays we are working on refurbishing our codes including them in a single "suite" that, at the moment, includes the SIPGI package. Stay tuned for future developments!

In a nutshell:
  • Our programs are created with the purpose of speeding up and simplifying the organization, reduction and analysis of the huge amount of data produced by astronomical instruments of the last generation.

  • We use the C language to obtain the maximum speed for computationally intensive operations, while for general purpose programs and graphical interfaces we love Python

  • We develop programs for Linux and macOS systems. In all likelihood no Windows program will ever appear in these pages!

  • We work in Milano, Italy, at the Istituto di Astrofisica Spaziale e Fisica Cosmica (IASF), which is part of the Italian Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF).
