SunPy – Full support for IRIS, 4D Cubes implemented using Ginga as the GUI

by Rupak Das for Python Software Foundation

The satellite 'IRIS' and other telescopes use a 4D cube data structure to save data. Currently, SunPy does not have support for this structure which this project aims to remedy. Proposed plan - 1) Tweak and merge the Cube module. 2) Create a GUI plugin to view and perform basic operations on 3D/4D data for Ginga using CRISPEX as a reference. The primary goal will be to merge the Cube module which will bring the support for IRIS, SST, EIS and every other 3D+ data format to SunPy.
