Automatic science-quality processing of the Gemini NIFS archive

Gemini NIFS (the Near-Infrared Integral Field Spectrograph) has been in operation for 15 years. In this time, it has executed 345 science programs. Utilizing the CANFAR VM batch processing environment at the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC) and the IRAF/Nifty4Gemini data reduction tools developed by Gemini Observatory, we have produced 2805 science-ready data cubes. These processed cubes have been added to the CADC archive system for public retrieval and linked back to the input datasets within the archive. We also describe how this work can be applied to Gemini NIRI (Near-Infrared Imager) data.
