Fermi Science Support Center

User Contributions

The FSSC welcomes contributions to the Fermi Science Tools from the scientific community. If you have developed an extension to the science tools or any other tool useful for Fermi data analysis, please let us know and we will post it on this website. While the FSSC will work with the developer to resolve any issues with the software the contribution is provided "as is" and may not work after a software or data upgrade (e.g. to pass 8 data), updating the tool or script remains the responsibility of the developer. For the moment, please direct any communication to the Help Desk.

cosmax This is an outreach-oriented suite of simple tools enabling non-experts to create sky maps, animations, etc, with the Fermi-LaT data. ReadMe May 13, 2016 B. Lott and D. Dumora
Adaptive-binning package This package allows the creation of lightcurves with a fixed relative statistical uncertainty in each bin (of variable width). ReadMe May 13, 2016 B. Lott
ctools ctools are based on GammaLib, a versatile toolbox for the high-level analysis of astronomical gamma-ray data. Besides CTA, GammaLib supports also the analysis of Fermi/LAT and COMPTEL data, and extensions to support further gamma-ray instruments are planned. Documentation Apr 15, 2016 Knödlseder et al.
