Abstract: The poster presents a friendly user interface for image reduction, totally written in Python and developed by the Advanced Data Products (ADP) group.
The interface is a front-end to the ESO/MVM image reduction package, originally developed in the ESO Imaging Survey (EIS) project and used currently to reduce imaging data from several instruments such as WFI, ISAAC, SOFI and FORS1.
As part of its scope, the interface produces high-level, VO-compliant, science images from raw data providing the astronomer with a complete monitoring system during the reduction, computing also statistical image properties for data quality assessment.
The interface is meant to be used for VO services and it is free but un-maintained software and the intention of the authors is to share code and experience.
The poster describes the interface architecture and current capabilities and give a description of the ESO/MVM engine for image reduction. The ESO/MVM engine should be released by the end of this year.
