As a regional expertise centre, CeSAM participates in the development of several software for processing and analysing spectro-photometric data.
Le Phare is a set of programs to compute photometric redshits and to estimate galaxy physical parameters through SED (Spectral Energy Distribution) fitting.
From a catalogue of observed galaxy fluxes — or magnitudes — Le Phare estimates their redshift and some of their physical parameters.

CIGALE (Code Investigating GALaxy Emission) is a SED (Spectral Energy Distribution) fitting software.
From a catalogue of observed flux — or magnitudes — of galaxies with a known redshift, CIGALE estimates various physical parameters.

HyperZ is as software for photometric redshift computation using SED (Spectral Energy Distribution) fitting.
From a catalogue of observed galaxy fluxes — or magnitudes — HyperZ estimates their redshift and some of their physical parameters.
