Bug#827354: ITP: splat-vo -- Spectral Analysis Tool for Virtual Observatory

Hash: SHA1

Package: wnpp
Owner: Paul Sladen <debian@paul.sladen.org>
Severity: Wishlist

* Package Name:         splat-vo
* Version:              3.11-3
* Upstream Author:      Margarida Castro Neves; Petr Skoda
* URL:                  http://www.g-vo.org/pmwiki/About/SPLAT
* Programming Language: Java
* License:              GPL-2+
* Description:          Spectral Analysis Tool for Virtual Observatory

Aladin is an desktop client for viewing and analysis of Virtual
Observatory (VO) spectral data.  This graphical tool can display,
analyse, compare and modify already extracted spectra stored in FITS,
TEXT, and NDF/NDX formats.  It can also interact with the Virtual
Observatory registery and data-centres to dynamically query and
download data for a particular section of the sky on-demand.

Splat-VO can work in multiple coordinate systems and can plot and
overlay multiple spectra at the same time.  Plots are displayed in a
visually rich format.  Analysis can be performed by selecting and
zooming multiple, and fitting to emission and absorption lines.

An example tutorial can be found at:


As of 2016 upstream work is in the 'Splat-VO/Starjava' branch at:


In the top-level of this repository also contains the rest of
dependencies, collectly known as 'Starjava', after the collaboration
project which created them.  The Starjava master repo is at:


There are a large number of dependencies on libraries contained in
the rest of Starjava, and these will need packaging first.  Splat also
contains some JNI native code optimisation functions, with
pure-Java fallback implementations.
