PaPCo is IDL software for data visualization and analysis.
It is modular, PaPCo modules built by various institutions and individuals plug into PaPCo core to provide data products.
These modules provide graphic panels that are stacked on a time axis.
About 60 modules exist, and 30 are supported as “core modules” that come with PaPCo.
There are modules from 15+ spacecraft, including CRRES, Polar, Cassini and Cluster.
Data from CDAWeb is plottable as well.
The software is open-source, making it very flexible and well-suited for science use.
Here is a complete list of existing modules.
PaPCo is widely used by the
community as the vehicle for high resolution common data analysis. Recent efforts focus on making PaPCo useful for Cluster analysis.
