Significant events discovered in data from gravitational-wave observatories are stored in tabular datasets, typically describing astrophysical events, or noise transients (glitches).
GWpy extends the (excellent)
astropy by providing the
This object extends the functionality of the regular
Table with enhanced I/O to support
gravitational-wave data, and utilities for processing and plotting tables of
events that contain GPS timestamps.
Data Tables (astropy.table) documentation for examples of how to create
custom tables, and much more.
The only thing to change if you want to use the
EventTable instead of
Table is the import:
>>> from gwpy.table import EventTable
The above documentation references the following objects:
A container for a table of events.
