A series of legacy videotutorials have been produced, with useful knowledge for current and future users of Herschel data and services. They cover:
- Herschel data and the Herschel Science Archive.
- Herschel legacy software.
- Herschel legacy documentation and legacy documentation catalogues.
- An overview of Herschel services for legacy users.
- Herschel data and how to examine it.
- How to search for specific types of Herschel data in the Herschel Science Archive (e.g. unpublished data, data that has been specially processed by an instrument expert, catalogues of sources, or of spectra, etc.)
- Data analysis techniques specific to each Herschel instrument (e.g. tricks for carrying out photometry, for analyzing extended sources, for baseline fitting of spectra, for analyzing the spectra of sources that are not perfectly centred on the detector, etc.)
The last legacy short videotutorials will be added early in 2019 and, after that, the contents of this list of short videotutorials will be frozen.There is also a dedicated Herschel YouTube Channel called "Herschel Academy", with many interesting videotutorials on different aspects of data analysis and on the mission in general that were generated through the mission. You can find Herschel Academy at:
Do bear in mind that some of the older videos have, inevitably, become slightly out of date as the software to analyse some observing modes and types of observations was still evolving, even after the end of the mission, although these older videotutorials are still useful as background material. Always check to see if there is a newer video available on the topic that interests you to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information.
