Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
eventsetyesdataset  
Name of the event-list dataset.
 
xcolnostringX 
Name of the column of the event list to which to write the X coordinate values.
 
ycolnostringY 
Name of the column of the event list to which to write the Y coordinate values.
 
imagesizenoreal0.36 
Half-size of final image (in degrees).
 
attsourcenostringbinnedbinned|odf|fixed
Source of the attitude data. If this equals `odf', the environment variable SAS_ODF must be set to point to the appropriate ODF.
 
inbinnedattsetyesdataset  
Name of the dataset from which to read the pre-binned attitude data (usually expected to be the output file of attbin). This parameter is read if attsource=`binned'.
 
odfattsourcenostringahfahf|om
Whether to use the Attitude History File or the OM pointing history file from the ODF. This parameter is read if attsource=`odf'.
 
pntkwdsetyesdataset  
Name of the dataset from which to read the spacecraft average pointing keywords (usually expected to be the output file of atthkgen). This parameter is read if attsource=`odf'.
 
maxdeltanoreal0.02$0<$maxdelta
A new attitude bin is started if the attitude jumps by more than this amount (in arcsec). This parameter is read if attsource=`odf'.
 
withmedianpntnobooleanyes 
Whether to use/calculate median or mean pointing for the *_PNT keywords. This parameter is read if attsource=`odf'.
 
writebinnedattnobooleanno 
Whether to write the binned attitude to file. If `yes', the data is written to outbinnedattset. This parameter is read if attsource=`odf'.
 
outbinnedattsetyesdataset  
The dataset which is to contain the binned attitude data. This parameter is read if writebinnedatt=`yes'.
 
attrayesangle $0\le$attra$\le360$
Right Ascension of the spacecraft attitude. This parameter is read if attsource=`fixed'.
 
attdecyesangle $-90\le$attdec$\le90$
Declination of the spacecraft attitude. This parameter is read if attsource=`fixed'.
 
attaposyesangle $0\le$attapos$\le360$
Position angle of the spacecraft attitude. This parameter is read if attsource=`fixed'.
 
tangdirstylenostringpntnom|obj|pnt|user
Source of celestial coordinates of the point at which the projection plane is tangent to the celestial sphere. Values `nom', `obj' or `pnt' cause the task to read these coordinates from keywords in the event list which have the form *_NOM, *_OBJ and *_PNT respectively, where * is either RA or DEC. (Note that the PNT values have already been written to the file by evproject.) If tangdirstyle=`user', the coordinates are read from parameters tangdirra and tangdirdec.
 
tangdirrayesreal $0\le$tangdirra$\le360$
RA of the point at which the projection plane is tangent to the celestial sphere. This parameter is read if tangdirstyle=`user'.
 
tangdirdecyesreal $-90\le$tangdirdec$\le90$
Declination of the point at which the projection plane is tangent to the celestial sphere. This parameter is read if tangdirstyle=`user'.
