IDAT – ISM Data Analysis Toolbox

Last update: 30 May 2020
IDAT, the ISM Data Analysis Toolbox, provides a suite of tools to analyze and visualize the data produced by the codes of the ISM Services Platform. It is usable both on data produced after downloading and running the codes locally, and on data downloaded from ISMDB.

IDAT allows to extract some desired computed quantities into text files and to produce graphs to visualize the spatial profile of the data

 IDAT needs ismpy to run (see the documentation)
Once ismpy is installed, to run the IDAT graphical interface, enter: ./idat dataanalysis
 
Note: IDAT can be used in command line to process quickly large number of models.

The Chemistry Analyser tool

Last update: 30 May 2020
The Chemistry analyser is a tool to perform a detailed analysis of the chemical state computed by the codes available on the ISM platform. The software presents, in a graphical user interface, schematic visualization of the formation and destruction mechanisms of any species, and displays all the necessary information to analyse a given chemical state.

The Chemistry Analyser is compatible with the HDF5 files produced by PDR 1.5.4, PDR 1.5.2, PDRLight and the shock code.

 The Chemistry Analyser needs ismpy to run (see the documentation)
Once ismpy is installed, to run the Chemistry Analyser graphical interface:
1 – sh chemanalyser.sh
2 – visualizer/index.html

The Extractor tool (outdated – python 2.7)

Last update: 25 June 2017
The Extractor is a tool to read the HDF5 output files produced by PDR 1.5.2, PDRLight and the shock code. The Extractor allows to navigate in the quantities computed by these codes, to select some of them and extract them in ASCII or VO-Table format. Results can be send directly to VO plotting softwares.

Note: The Extractor can be used either with a graphical interface or in script mode. When the same quantities have to be extracted for a large number of models, it is recommended to use it in script mode.

To use the Extractor in script mode
1 – Open a model in graphical mode
2 – Select the quantities to extract and ask to save the script
3 – Run the script from a terminal:
python2.7 extractor.py -f ModelName.hdf5 -t ScriptName.esf -o ResultFileName.dat

The PDRAnalyser tool (outdated)

The PDRAnalyser tool is a java program used to read the outputs of the PDR code versions 1.4.x that are in XML and FITS formats. Versions 1.4.x of the Meudon PDR code are no more maintained as well as the PDRAnalyser tool. We recommend to use more recent versions of the PDR code with the Extractor tool.

 To use PDRAnalyser in script mode
1 – Open a model in graphical mode
2 – In menu File, select “Script Builder”
3 – Select the quantities to extract and save the script
4 – Run the script from a terminal:
./pdranalyser.sh script.xml PATH/model.xml result.txt
