Description: AutoSpec: This software aims to provide fast, automated extraction of high quality 1D spectra from astronomical datacubes with minimal user effort. AutoSpec takes an IFU datacube and a simple parameter file in order to extract a 1D spectra for each object in a supplied catalogue. A custom designed cross-correlation algorithm helps to improve signal to noise as well as isolate sources from neighbouring contaminants. A preprint of the science paper describing the software can be found on the arXiv (https://arxiv.org/abs/1807.05922)
