Panel discussion: Next steps for OIFITS

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


    The second version of the optical interferometry data exchange format (OIFITS 2) was published in January 2017. OIFITS 2 was intended to address the needs of future interferometric instruments, allow description of correlated measurement errors, and standardize header keywords for bookkeeping and data discovery. We report on a panel discussion held during the conference "Optical and Infrared Interferometry and Imaging VI" with the aims of raising awareness of OIFITS 2, identifying any difficulties in migrating to the new version, and planning for future development of OI data standards.
