Abstract

Abstract In anticipation of the Auger Engineering Radio Array (AERA) to be built at the Pierre Auger Observatory, radio functionality has been built into the Offline analysis framework. For the purpose of radio-hybrid analysis and to facilitate a standardized treatment of simulation as well as experimental data it is important that the analysis software for all types of detectors is bundled in one software package. The design philosophy of the Offline package is discussed with particular attention to the recently included radio functionality. In order to illustrate the full potential and flexibility of the software, two example pipelines for analysis of simulations as well as measured data are outlined and discussed.
