ATpy (Astronomical Tables in Python) is a Python module aimed at dealing with tables of astronomical data with a common API. To date, the following formats are supported: FITS, VO, and IPAC tables, and SQLite, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases
- Provides a Table class that contains data stored in a NumPy structured array, along with meta-data to describe the columns, and methods to manipulate the table (e.g. adding/removing/renaming columns, selecting rows, changing values, sorting, ...)
- Provides built-in support for reading and writing to several common file/database formats, including FITS, VO, and IPAC tables, and SQLite, MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, with a very simple API.
Must-have module for any python-based astronomer.
