MaNGA Data Analysis Pipeline

Project description

The MaNGA Data Analysis Pipeline

Build Status Coverage Status Doc Status License astropy

The MaNGA data-analysis pipeline (MaNGA DAP) is the survey-led software package that has analyzed all galaxy data produced by the MaNGA data-reduction pipeline (MaNGA DRP). Its goal is to produce high-level, science-ready data products derived from MaNGA spectra. The products currently provided are:

  • Spatially stacked spectra
  • Stellar kinematics
  • Nebular emission-line properties: fluxes, equivalent widths, and kinematics
  • Spectral indices: absorption-line (e.g., H-delta) and bandhead/color (e.g., TiO, D4000) measurements

That is, the DAP currently focuses on "model-independent" properties. Higher-level, model-dependent properties, such as stellar-population parameters, are outside of the scope of the current pipeline.

SDSS Data Release Versions

  • SDSS-IV/MaNGA DR15 is based on version 2.2.1

  • SDSS-IV/MaNGA DR17 is based on version 3.1.2. Note that the version of the code that produced the DR17 was version 3.1.0; version 3.1.1 and 3.1.2 only include documentation updates.
