ChIPS: Chandra Image and Plotting System

ChIPS is the CIAO plotting package. It can be used during data analysis - e.g. to plot a lightcurve - and to create publication-quality figures.

ChIPS is designed for use in a variety of modes: as a user-interactive application and in batch mode. ChIPS is an importable module for the Python scripting language and is available as a C/C++ library for software developers.

Documentation on this application is available from the ChIPS website.
