Gammapy is a Python package for professional gamma-ray astronomers to analyse data from space-based gamma-ray telescopes (like Fermi-LAT) as well as ground-based gamma-ray telescopes (such as HESS or CTA). It is a very young project, so there’s a lot to do. The project I will be working on consists of gammapy.image, gammapy.detect (using gammapy.image as a building block) and making small modules and improvements such as source extraction or cluster detection tools. Working on the tests and documentation will be a significant part of my project, making both new and existing code documented and increasing coverage.
