Researchers in the field of Astrophysics are increasingly faced with choices on what data to keep and what to throw away. One example of a data intensive project in theoretical astrophysics is GERLUMPH (GPU-Enabled High Resolution cosmological MicroLensing parameter survey, https://gerlumph.swin.edu.au). Using Kakadu’s KDU, researchers at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing (Swinburne University of Technology) developed KERLUMPH (https://supercomputing.swin.edu.au/projects/kerlumph/) which compresses GERLUMPH's magnification maps into JPEG2000. The use of KDU accelerated their project by enabling them to step into the experimental phase with limited software development time.
