Marvin Documentation

Marvin is a tool specifically designed to visualise and analyse MaNGA data. It is developed and maintained by the MaNGA team. Marvin allows you to:

  • Access reduced MaNGA datacubes local, remotely, or via a web interface.

  • Access and visualise data analysis products.

  • Perform powerful queries on data and metadata.

  • Abstract the datamodel and forget where the data actually lives.

  • Make good visualisation and scientific decisions by preventing common mistakes when accessing the data.


This documentation assumes that you are familiar with MaNGA data and its acronyms. If that is not your case, consider reading this.


Marvin 2.x is the last version that will support Python 2. Marvin 3 and following will require Python 3.6+.
