In collaboration with the various instrument consortia, the Pipeline Systems
Department has undertaken to implement data reduction pipelines for the most
commonly used VLT/VLTI instrument modes. These data reduction pipelines have
three main purposes:
* Data quality control: Pipelines are used to produce the quantitative
information necessary to monitor instrument performance.
* Master calibration product creation: pipelines are used to produce master
calibration products (e.g. combined bias frames, super-flats, wavelength
* Science product creation: using pipeline-generated master calibration
products, science products are produced for supported instrument modes
(e.g. combined ISAAC jitter stacks; bias-corrected, flat-fielded FORS
images, wavelength-calibrated UVES spectra). The accuracy of the science
products can be limited both by the quality of the available master
calibration products and by the algorithmic implementation of the
pipelines themselves. In particular, adopted reduction strategies may not
be suitable for all scientific goals.
This metapackage will install all ESO VLT pipelines along with the
environments needed to run them (esorex, python-cpl).
