edetect_chain (edetect_chain-3.17.2) [xmmsas_20230412_1735-21.0.0]

Output Files

  1. exposure maps (from task eexpmap)
  2. unvignetted exposure maps (optional, from task eexpmap)
  3. detector mask images (from task emask)
  4. background maps (from task esplinemap)
  5. “cheesed” images (optional, from task esplinemap)
  6. eboxdetect source list (local mode)
  7. eboxdetect source list (map mode)
  8. emldetect source list
  9. source maps, (optional, from task emldetect)
  10. sensitivity images (from task esensmap)

The task edetect_chain uses the following hardcoded extensions to the input image names for the output products:
Exposure maps: $<$input root$>$exp.$<$input extension$>$
Non-vignetted exposure maps (optional): $<$input root$>$expnovig.$<$input extension$>$
Mask images: $<$input root$>$mask.$<$input extension$>$
Background images: $<$input root$>$bkg.$<$input extension$>$
“Cheesed” images: $<$input root$>$cheese.$<$input extension$>$
Source maps: $<$input root$>$smap.$<$input extension$>$
Sensitivity images: $<$input root$>$sen.$<$input extension$>$

The names of the output source lists from eboxdetect and emldetect can be specified via the parameters eboxl_list, eboxm_list, and eml_list.
