Data Analysis with the SolarSoft System

  • S.L. Freeland

The SolarSoftWare (SSW) system is a set of integrated software libraries, databases and system utilities which provide a common programming and data analysis environment for solar physics. Primarily an IDL based system, SSW is a collection of common data management and analysis routines derived from the Yohkoh and SOHO missions, the Solar Data Analysis Center, the astronomy libraries and other packages. The SSW environment is designed to provide a consistent look and feel at co-investigator institutions and facilitate sharing and exchange of data. The SSW system minimizes the learning curve when doing research away from the home institution or when correlating results from multiple experiments.
