Using Python to Search NASA's Astrophysics Archives
Monday, 1 June | 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Fee: $35

Organizer: Tess Jaffe, University of Maryland

NASA's Astrophysics Archives preserve many terabytes of multiwavelength images, catalogs, and spectra. While many astronomers are familiar with the web tools that are convenient for searching and visualizing these data, programmatic interfaces through Python are increasingly in demand. This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the programmatic data access tools available and the tutorial notebooks NAVO offers. We will describe science scenarios that combine multiwavelength data from the HEASEARC, IRSA, NED, and MAST that participants will then be encouraged to work through themselves. Workshop organizers will be available to help participants complete them and/or adapt them for custom projects.


Making the Most of the AAS WorldWide Telescope
Monday, 1 June | 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Fee: $35

Organizer: Peter Williams, Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian

The AAS WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is the American Astronomical Society’s official tool for visually exploring humanity’s scientific understanding of the Universe. This free and open-source software package can power everything from interactive "live image" figures in journal articles, to exploratory data visualizations in Jupyter notebooks, to immersive custom websites, to professional-grade planetariums. This interactive tutorial will introduce attendees to the WWT software ecosystem in the context of its applications to research, education, and public outreach.
