Gammapy is a Python package for high-level gamma-ray data analysis built on Numpy, Scipy and Astropy. It enables to analyse gamma-ray data and to create sky images, spectra and lightcurves, from event lists and instrument response information, as to determine the position, morphology and spectra of gamma-ray sources.
So far Gammapy has mostly been used to analyse data from H.E.S.S. and Fermi-LAT, and is now being used for the simulation and analysis of observations from the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). We have proposed Gammapy as a prototype for the CTA science tools. This contribution gives an overview of the Gammapy package and shows an analysis application example with simulated CTA data.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
