Web-Based Tools

These Web-based tools are designed to assist scientists in their proposal and general data analysis efforts. The HEASARC provides these tools as a service to the scientific community. (HEASoft/FTOOLS, a general library of FITS file utility programs and mission-specific data analysis tools can be found on our Software page.)

General Tools

Multi-Mission Tools

  • new itemSciServer – A science platform for data analysis over the Internet
  • Hera – Astronomical data analysis over the Internet
  • RPS – Remote Proposal System
  • Date/Time Converter (xTime) – Convert Fermi, RXTE, Suzaku, Swift, and XMM-Newton times to other time systems and formats, and vice versa
  • SkyView – The Internet's Virtual Telescope
  • Timeline Tool – Swift, RXTE and HETE-2 observation (as-flown) timelines
  • Viewing – Determine possible viewing times for missions and objects
  • WebPIMMS – Determine source flux or count rates
  • WebSpec – Simulate spectral data for missions/instruments

Mission-Specific Tools

  • new itemXRISM Roll Angle – Determine the range of possible roll angles for a XRISM observation of a target or the time constraints for a roll-constrained XRISM observation of a target

Cosmic Microwave Background Analysis Tools
