Typical JWebbinar topics include:

  • Overview of data analysis tools and data products
  • The JWST pipeline for imaging
  • The JWST pipeline for spectroscopy
  • Analyzing IFUs and spectral cubes
  • Analyzing MIRI photometry
  • Analyzing time series spectroscopy
  • Accessing data in MAST

The JWebbinars are led by experts from STScI and the JWST Observer community. Participants are given hands-on experience with the data analysis tools. A virtual programming environment is provided so that participants will not be required to install software prior to attending the event.

The JWST data analysis ecosystem is based on Python and it is recommend that participants be familiar with basic Python coding and the Jupyter notebook interface to get the most out of the JWebbinars.
