HIRES Hires HIRES Software Tools Operational

HIRES retrieves IRAS raw scan data and then employs the Maximum Correlation Method to construct resolution-enhanced coadded images. HIRES default images have 2 arcminute resolution (compared to 4 arcminute ISSA images), and the algorithm allows for iteration that can achieve well below 1 arcminute resolution, depending on factors such as wavelength, slew rate, and survey coverage.

Periodogram Tool Periodogram Tool Software Tools Operational

A periodogram measures the variation of spectral frequency in a time series data set, and is one of the most powerful tools in extracting periodic signals from time-varying data sets. The periodogram tool developed at NStED returns three main products: the periodogram itself; a table of the peaks in the periodogram, with the associated probabilities that these peaks arise by chance; and light curves phased to these periods.
