Abstract: This proceeding introduces Marvin, a software suite of tools to interact with the MaNGA dataset. MaNGA, a SDSS-IV survey, provides integral field spectroscopy of a sample of nearly 10,000 galaxies. As part of the most recent SDSS data release, DR15, Marvin has been made public. Marvin is a tool designed for streamlined access to the MaNGA data, optimised for overcoming the challenges of searching, accessing, and visualising the complexity of the MaNGA dataset. Marvin has two main components: a Web Interface, for a quick visual exploration, and a Python package of tools, for more in-depth scientific analysis and inclusion in your science workflow.
