JWST Data Analysis Visualization Tool

The JWST Data Analysis Visualization (Jdaviz) tool is a specific component of the broader analysis tool ecosystem designed to work seamlessly with Astropy within a Jupyter notebook. The visualization tools also may be operated as standalone desktop applications or as embedded windows within a website.

The tool currently has 4 configurations:

  • Imviz is an image viewer.
  • Specviz is a tool for visualization and quick-look analysis of 1D astronomical spectra. 
  • Mosviz is a visualization tool for viewing multi-object spectrograph data (e.g., JWST NIRSpec MOS mode), and includes viewers for 2D and 1D spectra as well as contextual information like on-sky views of the spectrograph slit.
  • Cubeviz provides access to and manipulation of spectroscopic data cubes (like those produced by JWST MIRI MRS or NIRSpec IFU), along with 1D spectra extractions from the cube.
