Technical note Open Access
The data formats for gamma-ray astronomy contain high-level data format specifications, ranging from event lists and instrument response formats to maps, spectra and lightcurves. This version 0.2 describes the formats currently in use and under development by various instruments (e.g. CTA, HESS, MAGIC, VERITAS, FACT, Fermi-LAT) and science tools (e.g. Gammapy and Gammalib). Please note that this is not a stable and agreed standard yet, it is incomplete and work in progress. We welcome feedback and contributions!
The data formats for gamma-ray astronomy are also available at https://gamma-astro-data-formats.readthedocs.io/ and are written and discussed at https://github.com/open-gamma-ray-astro/gamma-astro-data-formats .
