Data Processing Tab

NRAO Interactive Services Modification Request 3 T2 2010

1. Introduction

The current CASA tab on is specific to CASA but we want to incorporate other data analysis packages as well and therefore convert the LegacyCASA tab to a general "Data Processing" tab.

2. Background

The current CASA page was created as a way to capture user information for individuals that were interested in CASA. The mechanism used was to populate a table when the user clicked a download button. Since the user would be sent to a download landing page this list is probably a super set of interested users including those that actually downloaded CASA. Nevertheless this mechanism served it purposes but it is no longer necessary as mailman lists have been advertised and are in use for people interested in CASA news.

3. Requirements

  • Change the current CASA tab from LegacyCASA to "Data Processing".
  • Change the content of the page to be:

Scientists using NRAO telescopes employ a variety of software and analysis packages to reduce and analyze their data, depending on their specific needs, experience, and skills. Below is a list of NRAO software (also see Data Processing [link:]).

4. Design

Technical lead should provide a brief description of how this will be implemented in the code.

5. Deployment Checklist

Documentation? Systems/hardware/networking things needed for deployment?

6. Test Plan

6.1 Internal Testing

6.2 Sponsor Testing

6.3 Integration/Regression Tests
