SPLAT-VO: Spectral Analysis Tool
SPLAT is a graphical tool for displaying, comparing, modifying and analysing astronomical spectra stored in several file formats. Spectra can be read from local files or retrieved through VO protocols.
GAVO (beta) versions:
- 3.14beta (beta version with extended datalink support)
- 3.13 (splap/vamdc interface, initial timeseries support):
- Source code: https://github.com/SPLAT-VO/starjava
SPLAT is part of the STARJAVA collection. The main page of SPLAT-VO is maintained by Peter Draper, SPLAT's original developer.
The original SPLAT offered basic VO functionality for searching and selecting spectra using the SSAP protocol.
SPLAT is now being developed by the GAVO (German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory) team, in cooperation with the Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Our goal is to update SPLAT to keep up with the changing requirements of both end users and data providers. Some of the features present in the latest release are:
- exploring more aspects of the SSAP Protocol (e.g. supporting all available metadata parameters)
- implementation of new VO standards like ObsCore, SODA/DataLink.
- more flexibility on service selection (tagging a set of services, manually adding new service)
- limited access for non authenticated users
