The GIST Pipeline: A Multi-Purpose Tool for the Analysis of Spectroscopic Data
The GIST pipeline is a convenient, all-in-one framework for the analysis of spectroscopic data. It extracts stellar and gaseous kinematics, non-parametric star-formation-histories as well as line strength indices and stellar population properties from spectroscopic observations by exploiting the pPXF and GandALF routines. The software is not specific to any instrument or analysis technique, provides easy means of modification, and includes an elaborate parallelisation. It further features a dedicated visualization routine with a graphical user interface. This allows easy access of all measurements, spectra and fits in fully-interactive plots. The GIST pipeline is being used by the TIMER, Fornax3D and PHANGS surveys and has successfully been applied to both low and high-redshift data from MUSE, CALIFA, SINFONI, as well as to simulated data for HARMONI and WEAVE.
