This page contains detailed information about the algorithms used to process the imaging and spectroscopic data used in SDSS, SDSS-III and SDSS-IV.
Important considerations that affect all forms of SDSS data:
Software to view and process SDSS data:
Algorithms that process optical spectra and associated catalogs
Algorithms that process infrared spectroscopic data and associated catalogs
A beginners guide to MARVELS data and a description of pipeline algorithms.
Algorithms that process SDSS-IV MaNGA optical integral-field spectroscopy
Algorithms that define how various spectroscopic programs of the SDSS select objects for spectroscopic follow-up
Algorithms that process SDSS images
Algorithms that create the imaging catalog data
