The HELP-IDIA Panchromatic PrOject (HIPPO) aims to create a cloud-based environment where reduced radio data (i.e. maps and catalogues) can be effectively combined with multi-wavelength data to enable galaxy evolution studies using several complementary approaches. Building on the experience of the Herschel Extragalactic Legacy Project (HELP) and using the infrastructure provided by the Inter-University Institute for Data Intensive Astronomy (IDIA), HIPPO team members develop and refine tools for Multi-Wavelength Source Extraction, Matching, Classification and Visualisation and thus produce a science exploitation pipeline for MeerKAT extragalactic surveys. It will determine accurate distances for radio sources by collecting spectroscopic redshifts and computing photometric redshifts and carry out physical and statistical modelling of their properties to study their evolution with cosmic time. HIPPO will support MeerKAT Large Survey Projects such as LADUMA, MIGHTEE and MeerKLASS and advance IDIA’s expertise and HCD in key areas of data intensive research for future work with LSST and SKA.
