LOSC Data on the LIGO Data GridLOSC data is available on the LIGO data grid (LDG).
gsissh ldas-pcdev1.ligo.caltech.eduLOSC data is available in the directory:
In addition, the LOSC example API works on the LDG. In this way, you can work on the LDG in exactly the same way as you would on you laptop. For example, you can prototype code on your laptop, and then run batch jobs on the LDG.
You are now ready to use LOSC data, and the LOSC API, exactly as on your laptop. For example, see the documentation on the LOSC API Examples page. As a concrete example, let's say we want to write a loop over data which passes Burst CAT2 data quality. We could both construct the segment list and load the data like this:
Note that constructing a segment list often results in warnings about missing files. This is normal behaviour for the LOSC sample API - it is a reminder that there are no data files for times with no available science mode data. As an alternative, segment lists can be downloaded from the LOSC web site using Timeline.
Now that you know how to load data on the LDG, you may want to see some of
the other examples on the
LOSC tutorial page.
