Astronomy Software Tools

APT: the Astronomer's Proposal Tool

APT is installed, but you should read the online docs about it. It requires a computer with something like 512 megabytes of memory to run efficiently. I suggest you run it on meso if your workstation does not have this much memory.

To run:

 /apps2/APT1400/runAPT 

ps the web site for instructions and FAQs is http://apt.stsci.edu

SPOT: The Spitzer Planning Observations Tool

For those interested in using it, it is run with the command

                                                                                                      
/apps2/SPOT/spot

It is java-based and is likely to run slowly on workstations without enough memory (if your workstation has less than 256 meg of ram, I would recommend using meso to run this).
