I am a faculty member at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy where I am the lead of the Pan-STARRS Image Processing Pipeline team. Previously, I wrote the CFHT Elixir pipeline with Jean-Charles Cuillandre, used for standard data analysis of Megacam and CFH12K data.
The Pan-STARRS IPP : Lessons Learned and Looking Forward
The Pan-STARRS Image Processing Pipeline (IPP) has been running on
data from the Pan-STARRS telescopes for a dozen years. To date, the
system has processed over 1.5 million exposures representing more than
2 Petapixels (2e15 pixels). The IPP operates on data from both
Pan-STARRS telescopes, and has also been used to process CFHT Megacam
and Subaru HSC images. In this talk, I will discuss the successes and
lessons learned from a decade of large-scale data processing, and
highlight our plans for future improvements.
