|step||purpose||What you have to do|
|setup||have your own data_rep on your account. Follow the setup advice for GSFC or the setup advice for ISDC.|
|setenv COMMONLOGFILE mylog.txt||define a logfile||If you want to have a log file, set it now. To unset it later just type "unsetenv COMMONLOGFILE"|
|emacs dols.txt||create a list of SCWs||Here is one example for a list of one SCW: dols.txt and a list for the Cygnus hexagonal observation: dols_cyg.txt. Please have a look on the list of usable data.|
|og_create idxSwg="dols.txt" ogid="obs_id" baseDir="."||create the OG||give a (up to now not existing!) name for the obs-branch (obs_id).|
|cd obs/obs_id||go to your obs branch.|
revolution 1 - 10
|For data before revolution 11 spipoint is not working - therefore apply blc_spipoint first. spipoint is also not working for revolution 11 science window 00112901xxx! Note: blc_spipoint sometimes crashes when using more than one science window at a time.|
(if you want to avoid the GUI, unsetenv DISPLAY before starting spi_science_analysis !)
|do the analysis||start with spi_science_analysis (with level GTI, after
applying blc_spipoint for revolution 1 - 10, with level POIN for
revolution 11 onward), fill in the parameters for the
analysis (either off-line using an editor, or by using the GUI which will appear on the screen). The following parameter file can be a basis for your analysis: spi_science_analysis.par (if you want to use it, copy it to your $PFILES/spi_science_analysis.par).
You can get a detector list if you are not
familiar with our pseudo-detector scheme.
Which IRFs do you want to use (leave empty for automatic access)?
Begin with small numbers of energy bins!
Read also the user manuals of spiros.
|output check||use spi_dsp_display to plot the detector spectra and
spi_spectral_display for the spiros output spectra. Read also the log file, check the images, events table and so
on. If your analysis is failing - check for missing/wrong input
parameters first and check the frequently
asked question page.
You can fit the SPIROS spectra using XSPEC: How to use XSPEC on SPIROS output spectra
|spi_science_analysis||step back and repeat parts of the analysis||Run spi_science_analysis if you want to do only the IMA level again or run SPIROS manually. If you want to start from binning again, use spi_science_analysis.|
