A list of publications based on UIT data can be found here. Much of this is of general interest for analysis of astronomical and other data and is publicly available. IDL and Python are the best interactive computer languages available for computer-literate physical scientists.

The first two are required in any well-managed software effort. We estimate that the second two functions can be provided at the addi- tional expense of one man-year plus overhead per center per year. In addition, it is necessary that there be some com- munity-wide coordination in such areas as software devel- opment and data format standards.

For this purpose, a permanent committee should be established, perhaps under the auspices of the AAS and perhaps with federal support. The committee would be responsible for continuing evalua- tion of astronomical computing needs, developing standards for data formats and software compatibility, and collect- ing and disseminating software and hardware news of rele- vance to the community.
The committee should also play a coordinating role in the archiving and data-base activ- ities described in the next two sections. Finally, the committee should provide a focal point for liaison with Starlink and other non-U.

It could conceivably be argued that we are collecting too many data--that we should cut back until the data collected match our capabilities to analyze and interpret them. Each type of problem may require tne Development or special techniques for ex- tracting the relevant data from the image array and providing such problem-specific measures as object brightness, statistical "counts" of numbers of objects brighter than a certain value, and distribution of bright- ness with position.
We recommend that the funding agencies NASA and NSF provide funds for the implementation of decentralized image processing and analysis systems equivalent to 20 "canonical" systems see Appendix 5. However, with the decentralization of facilities as proposed above, there is the potential that much of the Even simple tunc- software development will be duplicated at each facility. If, in addition, the key to the successful operation of the software is the fact that the same computer and peripheral architectures exist at each node, then the facilities would be locked into the architecture they started with until that family of computers was discontinued by the manufacturer.
