Abstract
Users of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) are provided with calibration and imaging products in addition to raw data. In Cycle 0 and Cycle 1, these products are produced by a team of data reduction experts spread across Chile, East Asia, Europe, and North America. This article discusses the lines of communication between the data reducers and ALMA users that enable this model of distributed data reduction. This article also discusses the calibration and imaging scripts that have been provided to ALMA users in Cycles 0 and 1, and what will be different in future Cycles.
