Gaia related code and tools


CEMGA stands for Charge Transfer Inefficiency Effects Models for Gaia, it is a platform that hosts models to simulate the operation of non-irradiated and irradiated CCDs. The code was developed by Thibaut Prod'homme as part of his PhD thesis and the whole package can be found on these pages.

PyGaia: Toolkit for basic Gaia data simulation, manipulation, and analysis

PyGaia provides python modules for the simulation of Gaia data and their errors, as well modules for the manipulation and analysis of the Gaia catalogue data. In particular transformations between astrometric observables and phase space variables are provided as well as transformations between sky coordinate systems. The package can be downloaded from PyPi or from Github.
