Simulation and Analysis Program Package for HiSPARC Research

SAPPHiRE simplifies data access, simulations and analysis for the HiSPARC experiment. It was born out of a combination of the old framework and the collection of simulation and analysis scripts developed by David Fokkema for his PhD thesis work. Development is ongoing, while Arne de Laat is working on his PhD research.
