Madagascar: open-source software project for multidimensional data analysis and reproducible computational experiments

Sergey Fomel, Paul Sava, Ioan Vlad, Yang Liu, Vladimir Bashkardin

Abstract

The Madagascar software package is designed for analysis of large-scale multidimensional data, such as those occurring in exploration geophysics. Madagascar provides a framework for reproducible research. By “reproducible research” we refer to the discipline of attaching software codes and data to computational results reported in publications. The package contains a collection of (a) computational modules, (b) data-processing scripts, and (c) research papers. Madagascar is distributed on SourceForge under a GPL v2 license https://sourceforge.net/projects/rsf/. By October 2013, more than 70 people from different organizations around the world have contributed to the project, with increasing year-to-year activity. The Madagascar website is http://www.ahay.org/.
