Enrico : a Python package to simplify Fermi-LAT analysis    [PDF]

D. A. Sanchez, C. Deil
With the advent of the Large Array Telescope (LAT) on board the Fermi satellite, a new window on the Universe has been opened. Publicly available, the Fermi-LAT data come together with an analysis software named ScienceTools (ST, which can be run through a Python interface. Nevertheless, for the user, the ST can be hard to run and imply several steps. Users already contributed with scripts for a specific task but no tool allowing a complete analysis is currently available. We present a Python package called {\tt Enrico}, designed to facilitate the data analysis. Using only configuration files and front end tools from the command line, the user can easily perform/reproduce an entire Fermi analysis and make plots for publications. It also include new features like debug plots, pipeline execution on one or several CPUs, downloading of the Fermi data or the generation of a sky model from the Fermi catalogue. {\tt Enrico} is an open-source project currently available for download at \url{}
