The NRAO Astronomical Image Processing System (AIPS) is a software
package for interactive (and, optionally, batch) calibration and
editing of radio interferometric data and for the calibration,
construction, display and analysis of astronomical images made from
those data using Fourier synthesis methods. Design and development of
the package began in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1978. It presently
consists of over 5400 files containing 2.04 million lines of
text. These comprise over 584,000 lines of documentation and on-line
help in over 1900 files, and 1.56 million lines of text in over 5400
Fortran, C, and shell source files. It contains over 530 distinct
applications "tasks," representing well over 100 person-years of
effort since 1978.
