This contribution offers insights into two distinct aspects crucial to advancing our understanding of (exo)planetary atmospheres. Firstly, it focuses on radiative transfer (RT) and inversion codes as powerful tools for characterizing planetary atmospheres. We provide a comprehensive overview of various available codes, equipping researchers with a valuable resource for code selection and application in planetary atmospheric studies. Secondly, the presentation delves into the realm of atomic and molecular (A&M) databases within the (exo)planetary community. A&M data form the bedrock of understanding physical and chemical processes within planetary atmospheres. By highlighting existing A&M databases, we address aspects such as accessibility, organization, limitations, and infrastructures, shedding light on their pivotal role in (exo)planetary research.
