HeDaM was made possible thanks to various third party software:
- To convert fits files to viewable images, HeDaM makes use of Montage, funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Earth Science Technology Office, Computation Technologies Project, under Cooperative Agreement Number NCC5-626 between NASA and the California Institute of Technology. Montage is maintained by the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive.
- To convert catalogue data from one format to another, HeDaM is using the Starlink Tables Infrastructure Library Tool Set (STILTS) developed by Mark Taylor from the Bristol University.
In all papers using Herschel data, a compulsory footnote on the first page should be included. The footnote is:
Herschel is an ESA space observatory with science instruments provided by European-led Principal Investigator consortia and with important participation from NASA.
Every paper using HerMES data should include the following acknowledgement:
This research has made use of data from HerMES project (http://hermes.sussex.ac.uk/). HerMES is a Herschel Key Programme utilising Guaranteed Time from the SPIRE instrument team, ESAC scientists and a mission scientist. HerMES will be described in Oliver et al. 2012, MNRAS.
Every paper using data extracted from HeDaM database should include the following acknowledgement:
The HerMES data was accessed through the HeDaM database (http://hedam.oamp.fr) operated by CeSAM and hosted by the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille.
HerMES reference papers
Data using any of the current release of data should cite: Oliver et al. (2012) for a description of the observations; Smith et al. (2012), Roseboom et al. (2010) and Wang et al. (in prep.), for the catalogues; Levenson et al. (2010) and Zemcov et al. (in prep.) for the image maps.
Standard references to Herschel and its instruments
Reference to Herschel and its instruments should be made using the following standard references as appropriate. By means of an example:
In the present paper we will be discussing observations performed with the ESA Herschel Space Observatory (Pilbratt et al. 2010), in particular employing Herschel's large telescope and powerful science payload to do photometry using the PACS (Poglitsch et al. 2010) and SPIRE (Griffin et al. 2010) instruments, and very high resolution spectroscopy with the HIFI (de Graauw et al. 2010) instrument.
