HeDaM was made possible thanks to various third party software. We want to thank the teams developing these tools, in particular:
To create images and RGB composites from FITS maps, we are using the Astronomical Plotting Library in Python (APLpy).
APLpy makes use of Montage, funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Earth Science Technology Office, Computation Technologies Project, under Cooperative Agreement Number NCC5-626 between NASA and the California Institute of Technology. Montage is maintained by the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive.
To convert catalogue data from one format to another, we are using the Starlink Tables Infrastructure Library Tool Set (STILTS) developed by Mark Taylor from the Bristol University.
