Astronomy Tools/Integrations

Tools & Integrations (Current)

Astronomers are notorious for producing open-source tools, shared widely with colleagues.  The tools listed below are already in use, often in concert.  For reference, glue already has WWT and OpenSpace plug-ins, OpenSpace has its own WWT plug-in, and esaSky and WWT inter-operate so that users can jump back and forth from one to the other.

python library to explore relationships within 
and between related datasets 

GUI-based tools link data visualization and interactive analysis(based on glue & Jupyter).

interactive data visualization software designed to visualize the entire known universe.

a tool for showcasing astronomical data and knowledge

A community effort to develop a common core package for Astronomy in Python and foster an ecosystem of interoperable astronomy packages

allows visualization and download public astronomical data
(cf. Aladin)

Tools & Integrations (Requested & Planned)

Leaders of several well-used astronomical tools and toolkits are eager to integrate their projects with LIVE Astro.  (For reference, prototype plug-ins for the Aladin and yt services below already exist for glue, and discussions of MAST integration with LIVE Astro would be an expansion of the Jdaviz environment built by NASA for the James Webb Space Telescope Mission, using glue.  The CARTA project is of special interest, in that it could serve to bring the "radio" astronomy community into better communication with shorter-wavelength-focused colleagues more reliant on MAST-based tools). 

 Cube Analysis and Rendering Tool for Astronomy image visualization and analysis tool designed for the ALMA, the VLA, & SKA 

lightweight version of the Aladin tool, running in the browser
and geared towards simple
visualization of a sky region

The Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes is an astronomical data archive focused on the optical, ultraviolet, and near-infrared

The overall goal of Astro Data Lab is to enable efficient exploration and analysis of the large datasets now being generated by instruments on NOIRLab and other wide-field telescope

does what you want with tables

brings astronomical image display to your browser and desktop

+ More Tools & Integrations useful in Astronomy & Beyond (Requested & Planned)

python library for lazy out-of-core DataFrames (similar to Pandas), to visualize and explore big tabular datasets

Jupyter Notebook 3D visualization package.

A 3D visualization tool designed with native interoperation with existing powerful libraries such as PyVista, without being strictly dependent on them.

 python package for analyzing and visualizing volumetric data

And more... stay tuned!
