This is partly because of subtle assumptions in the implementations of the formats and the complexity of the mathematical relationships between the different formats (e.g. drift mode vs phased data) and partly because data analysis for individual telescopes typically used just one of the standards along with the associated analysis code. New low frequency instruments (e.g. MWA (http://www.mwatelescope.org/), PAPER (http://eor.berkeley.edu/), HERA (http://reionization.org/)), have required custom analysis and simulation software that rely on a range of different file formats. pyuvdata was designed to facilitate interoperability between these instruments and codes by providing high quality, well documented conversion routines as well as an interface to interact with interferometric data and simulations directly in python. pyuvdata currently supports reading and writing uvfits [@uvfits] and miriad [@miriad] files and reading FHD [@fhd] visibility save files. # References
