Two projects included in the OBELICS work package of the ASTERICS cluster will be described: CORELib and ROAst. CORELib is a collection of simulated showers induced by primary cosmic rays and a common framework to produce and manage such large production. CORELib provides high-statistics simulation for various astroparticle and astronomy experiments. The simulations are obtained by employing the widely used CORSIKA simulation framework. The parameters of simulations are available and easily accessible to the users. The goal of ROAst (ROot extension for Astronomy) is to extend the ROOT capabilities adding packages and tools for astrophysical research “bridging” the gap between particle physics and astronomy. The focus is on astronomical catalogues integration and on the support for astronomical coordinate transformations, manipulations as well as the graphical representation of astronomical regions of the sky.
