Introductory video tour of the Cubeviz configuration and its features

Cubeviz is a visualization and analysis toolbox for data cubes from integral field units (IFUs). It is built as part of the Glue visualization tool. Cubeviz is designed to work with data cubes from the NIRSpec and MIRI instruments on JWST, and will work with IFU data cubes. It uses the specutils package from Astropy .

Cubeviz is a tool for visualization and quick-look analysis of 3D data cubes, primarily from integral field units (IFUs). It incorporates visualization tools with analysis capabilities, such as Astropy regions and specutils packages. Users can interact with their data from within the tool. Cubeviz allows spectra of regions within the cube to be easily plotted and examined, offering all the same capabilities as Specviz.

In addition, Cubeviz also allows users to interacting with their cube to:

  • view the wavelength slices (RA, DEC),

  • view flux, error, and data quality cubes simultaneously,

  • view spectra from selected spatial (RA, DEC) regions,

  • smooth cubes spatially (RA, DEC) and spectrally (wavelength),

  • create and display contour maps,

  • collapse cubes over selected wavelength regions,

  • fit spectral lines,

  • create moment maps, including line flux and kinematic maps (rotation velocity and velocity dispersion),

  • overlay spectral line lists,

  • save edited cubes,

  • save figures,

  • fit models to every spaxel
