A key tool in the package of software available for the analysis of data from the SPI spectrometer of Integral is the SPIROS system developed at the University of Birmingham. Although intended primarily for the analysis of point sources and for the extraction of spectral information, SPIROS has many additional capabilities. The software is described with particular emphasis on the most widely used modes of operation and on the relationship to other imaging and data reduction techniques.
