A. Paizis thanks theISDC staff since most of the know-how needed to set-up such an archive was gained during her years at the ISDC
We present the archive of the INTEGRAL data developed and maintained at INAF-IASF Milano. The archive comprises all the public data currently available (revolutions 0026-1079, i.e., December 2002 - August 2011). INTEGRAL data are downloaded from the ISDC Data Centre for Astrophysics, Geneva, on a regular basis as they become public and a customized analysis using the OSA 9.0 software package is routinely performed on the IBIS/ISGRI data. The scientific products include individual pointing images and the associated detected source lists in the 17-30, 30-50, 17-50 and 50-100 keV energy bands, as well as light-curves binned over 100 s in the 17-30 keV band for sources of interest. Dedicated scripts to handle such vast datasets and results have been developed. We make the analysis tools to build such an archive publicly available. The whole database (raw data and products) enables an easy access to the hard X-ray long-term behavior of a large sample of sources.
Scripts to build your GOLIA
All the INTEGRAL public data can be freely downloaded via the ISDC dedicated web page.
A tar file with the scripts we used to build GOLIA (Process and Post-process phases, i.e. the ones performed by the archive Owner) can be downloaded from this page. These include the Shell scripts launch_IMA.sh (and its sub-routine analysis_IMA.csh), launch_LCR.sh (and its sub-routine analysis_LCR.csh), and the PERL script ima_pick.pl. Together with OSA, they complete the set of tools we used to build GOLIA. They use freely available interpreters and need no compilation.
Please refer toPaizis et al. (2013) for a description of the archive.
