CEFLIB

The IRAP CEFLIB library is a set of tools which efficiently read Cluster data in CEF format. Its main library is able to quickly load and parse a CEF file content.
It also includes IDL, MATLAB and Python interfaces.

IRF Uppsala MATLAB toolbox

IRFU-matlab is a MATLAB routines for space scientists working with data from different missions.

Orbitography

OVT

Orbit Visualisation Tool (OVT), developed by IRF (Uppsala, Sweden), enables interactive 3D visualisation of satellite orbits in the terrestrial magnetosphere. All satellite orbits from NASA SSCweb can be plotted (e.g. MMS, THEMIS, Van allen probes...)

 

Queen Mary Software

Qtran

The Queen Mary File Translator - a translator between file formats used by QSAS. In particular, Qtran will convert between CDF files, Cluster Exchange Format (CEF) files as well as other flat ASCII files of a specified format.

QSAS

Queen Mary Science Analysis System - a software package which provides a flexible, extendable environment for the selection, manipulation, and display of space physics data.

Qunit

Qunit allows comparison of different unit strings (in a specified format) to determine whether the units may be interconverted, and if so, the numerical conversion factor between them.

 

PI Team Software

CIS 3D moments software

The CIS Ground Moments Software allows the user to read the CIS level-3 files, available at the CAA (3D ion distribution functions in CEF-2 format), and interactively calculate partial or total moments of the ion distributions, for selected energy and solid angle ranges.
Download software (v 2.0) ( ~21MB )

 

CAA TOOLS

CAA tools

CAAtools is a collection of software that deals with CEF files. CEF stands for Cluster Exchange Format which is the data format used for the data in the Cluster Active Archive. You can use the CEFpass tool to verify the CEF syntax and the metadata contents of file. CEFcombine is the main interface to read data from one or more CEF files.
