Abstract: In this article we introduce PINGSoft, a set of IDL routines designed tovisualise and manipulate, in an interactive and friendly way, Integral FieldSpectroscopic data. The package is optimised for large databases and a fastvisualisation rendering. PINGSoft includes routines to extract regions ofinterest by hand or within a given geometric aperture, to integrate the spectrawithin a given region, to convert between different IFS formats, to read, editand write IFS data files, and some other miscellaneous codes especially usefulin astronomy and spectroscopy. Here we describe its major characteristics andrequirements, providing examples and describing its capabilities. The PINGSoftpackage is freely available at this http URL
