INTEGRAL Data Analysis
INTEGRAL Off-Line Scientific Analysis Software (OSA)
It is important to note that OSA 11.0 for IBIS is currently limited to data starting from 2015-12-26 (start of revolution 1626). For earlier data, the user should use OSA 10.2 with
the limitations described in the IBIS user manual.
These software packages are copies of the packages which are available from the

The IC, IDX, and CAT Data Trees
A standard INTEGRAL data repository consists of SCW, AUX, IC, IDX, and CAT data branches.
The SCW and AUX branches are part of the standard download from the
ISDC data archives.
The IC, IDX, and CAT branches are necessary to analyze data. These branches can be downloaded from
the HEASARC INTEGRAL archive with this PERL script: ic-idx-cat_download.
Merely cut-and-paste this script into an executable file in the directory where you wish to create your IC, IDX, and CAT directories
(generally where you have previously created your SCW amd AUX directories).
The ISDC has written data analysis cookbooks for the three major INTEGRAL instruments,
SPI, IBIS, and JEM-X, as part of the User Manuals for those
instruments. These cookbooks are available for
download from the ISDC website.
Scientists at INAF-IASF Milano have developed a set of scripts to analyze large quantities of
IBIS/ISGRI data using OSA 9.0. These scripts, called GOLIA, can be used to produce
images and lightcurves. The scripts are available for download from
INAF-IASF and further information can be found
in this paper.
