Procedure for downloading data from the INTEGRAL archive at the HEASARC
- Access the
INTEGRAL Public Data Archive at the ISDC Browse interface.
- Use the Browse interface to select the SCW data relevant for your
source and then choose 'Save SCW list.'
- This will give an ASCII list of the science windows in the
# Date: 2004-08-31T16:00:57
# Obs_ID(s): 88600190005, 88600190003, 88600230001, 88600240001,
88600300001, 88600190004, 88600190002, 88600190006, 88600190001
Save this list as a text file if this is not already done. Then edit
the file, deleting all lines prior to the first line beginning with
- Now run our Perl script,
It will prompt you for a
file containing the list of SCWs. This is the text file you just
created. It will also query you about including AUX reference and
revolution data in the download. We recommend including this in your
download. The script will output the shell script 'scw-aux_download'
in the run directory.
- Run 'scw-aux_download' in the directory where you wish to create
your data repository. It will create a 'data' directory with 'aux' and
'scw' subdirectories filled with newly downloaded data.
- You will now have to create your 'ic', 'idx', and 'cat'
subdirectories in the 'data' directory. If you have performed previous
INTEGRAL data analyses these data may already exist on your local
disks. If this is the case, then create soft links using 'ln -s' to
these pre-existing data. WARNING: This should only be done if the
existing 'ic', 'idx', and 'cat' data were from analyses containing data
from spacecraft revolutions later than the current download. If
appropriate 'ic', 'idx', and 'cat' data do not already exist locally,
then you should download these data directly from the HEASARC archive
using the script
This shell script creates and
fills the 'ic', 'idx', and 'cat' subdirectories in the newly created
'data' directory when run in the parent directory of 'data.'
- Set the environmental variable REP_BASE_PROD to this 'data'
directory containing your newly downloaded data.
