IRTF Data Archive (IDA) Project
NASA InfraRed Telescope Facility(IRTF), Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii
This IDA (IRTF Data Archive) home page documents the internal IRTF archiving effort
The public NASA Infrared
Telescope Facility (IRTF) Archive has been operational at
IRSA since Feb 2018.
IRSA is the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive.
This IRSA site hosts:
- SpeX data from 2016B
- ISHELL data from 2017A
The IDA's primary objective are:
- Collect IRTF FITS and meta data to be archive by IRSA.
- Package and transfer the data to IRSA.
- Maintain the IRTF Legacy Archive (raw observing data from 2000B to 2016A).
2021/04- The 2020B data (SpeX and iSHELL) was delivered to IRSA.
This delivery contains 236,767 FITS files
2020/11- The 2020A data (SpeX and iSHELL) was delivered to IRSA.
This delivery contains 208206 FITS files (38014 bigdog, 104503 guidedog, 19164 cartman, 46525 kyle).
The 2020A data is the 1st data set with the Quality Assesment (QA) information.
2020/03- IRSA is now hosting a copy of the following additional IRTF data.
